Staying in is the new going out

Keith's son, Giles told him recently about a problem that is common on Xboxes namely the Red Ring of Death, which is a dramatic name for something going wrong with it. Apparently, there are many Xboxes going for very little money on Ebay which have this problem. Why? Well, because it is possible to fix it.
I suppose you could buy several from Ebay, fix them and then sell them on.
That's what Keith thinks anyway.
That's why, having had a successful practice on an Xbox belonging to a friend of Giles, he has now bought seven, which will arrive in dribs and drabs over the next several days.
That's why, once again,  staying in will be the new going out for me as someone has to be here when the delivery vans come.
(Sadly, Paddy refuses to be trained to answer the door.)
However, I have stipulated that they are to be housed in the van - and I am unanimous in that!

I was thinking of getting one but I think I might save my money and stick to walking Paddy and using my rebounder for now. :)
