While Madame and Pest made a first assault on the Boxing Day sales, I tidied my study and sat down to address a long list of outstanding jobs for the Out of the Bedroom website.

Cue lots of searching and posting on help forums. By 10:30pm I’d got it up and running again, but without the upgrade or a clue as to what had gone wrong.
