First World Problems

The Echo in the kitchen wasn't responding when I got in yesterday and its rim glowed red as opposed to blue. It looks like the cleaners had pressed the microphone-off button to stop it eavesdropping on them.

The original Echo lives in the kitchen now. I Black-Fridayed an Echo Dot for the bedroom along with a dimmable Hive bulb.

I can now ease myself into the day by murmuring "Alexa bedroom light 10%" when I wake up.

Unfortunately the lamp shade won't fit over the new bulb which, with all its magical extras is deeper than standard.

Into each life a little rain must fall.
