Come on Dad'm really proud of my dad. He's never had to use a computer for his work but after retiring did a computer course and loved it. Now, I know this is a bit selfish but I thought, great - he won't keep asking me to show him how to send an email or attach a picture. Er, no.

He's got the basics but when I mention Google he gets a glazed expression. So, I've realised that it would be really helpful if we sat down, one-to-one and went through some of the things I know. So, I'm going to stop making excuses 'I'm out tonight or Coronation Street is on' and what better day to start than Get online day tomorrow.

It's great to volunteer to help people you don't know but what about those close to you?  Go on, there's no excuses to put it off now.
