  • To feel at home, we need two things.

    For him, it's his newspaper. He gets it electronically on his tablet, and then it keeps him happy all morning while he reads in cover to cover. Or electronic page one to electronic page last. He regales me with snippets, and it is interesting to hear important headlines such as "Mussels Smaller than Usual" and "Ice not yet Thick Enough for Skating". Also to hear a point of view (and priorities) other than the BBC's.

    Because that brings me to my requirement - BBC Radio 4. The Today Programme, The Archers, the Shipping Forecast, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, The News Quiz, the Classic Serial. Pure indoctrination.

    Though. If I'm writing, I switch to Radio 3.

    These needs fulfilled, we can live happily ever after anywhere.
