    Little Chuntering,

    Dear Aunty Dunty,

    Can you reassure me that even if I ask you for help about the "wrong sort of problem" - your advice will also be of the wrong sort? and would that be right? or wrong?

    Yours sincerely

    Albert K Gruntfuttock-Shroud (Mr.)

    Dear Dunty,

    When those fascia recognition cameras they keep talking about in the news become available on our phones, do you think it will help us find our way home from the pub after a skinful?

    I've been grateful for having dogs who could drag me home to the right house in the past, but I'm not sure I could cope with another when our current mutt kicks the bucket and I've retired. It's hard enough work coping with the little bleeder as it is.

    Mr Gruntfuttock - Yes!

    Duke - No!

    Dear Aunt D

    I hear there is a warm front pushing in on Wednesday.

    What shall I wear?

    Well, Tatiana, I had a warm front pushing in this morning!

    I wasn't wearing anything.

    I hope that helps.

    Dear Mrs Dunty

    There are a lot of people asking what our favourite things are!

    Here are a few of mine:

    Rainbows and mittens,
    and cat sick on kittens;
    Raindrops on roses,
    and snot up your noses...

    These are a few of my favourite things.

    Do you have any?

    Dear Dunty

    in trying to book a train ticket for the Mancunian soiree, after going through a number of screens of lessening comprehensibility, and the prices changing from one to the next, I finally took a guess on an outward and a return, then was redirected to some welsh train site, having been told it was Virgin trains, then seeing something about confirmation, but that the ticket would be available in one hour. What the flying farquhars does all this cobblers mean? I though "booking" meant I got the ticket and printed it on my printer? Now I have to go somewhere to collect it? Has travel, except in one's own vehicle become so flamin' complicated as to make it impossible except for the soshul medja generation who just seem to know how stuff works? I'm certainly not coming in the car it would probably cost me about 100 quid to park, I wouldn't know how the hell to get into Manchester since its all one way and money extortion cameras, and it would probably be nicked anyway.

    Soirée! That's an evening event! One would be too late, dear.

    The best site is the Trainline.

    Chester? I'll investigate.

    Trainline was worse, with "not available" against every ticket and train.

    Out 10.23, direct service from Chester.

    Anytime day return for around £15

    How odd!

    @HelenREMfan will know.

    Oops, 10.23 has 1 change.
    Choose the direct options.

    Is it really that much more on the day, bought on the station. I think last time I went to Manchester it was about 12 quid on the day. I can't do with all this faffing!!

    It's only a 12 hour walk. What's up with todays pensioners?

    Dear Dunty

    I need to take a train from Effingham Junction to Blindingham on a Thursday afternoon next October, with no changes. What does your travel service advise? Any discounts available?
