... Even turning the ipad off did not seem to work... Then I realised it was not coming from the ipad at all but from the hotel's alarm clock, which was not even plugged in and I certainly had not programmed it to take part in any games at all. I grabbed it and went to the loo, and eventually got it to stop by plugging it in. Phew. Not a good start to any morning, but it was just about to get even worse, when I started ...
