From reading to writing my blog. The phone has my notes, my contacts, my connections to my family, my friends, my work. How did everything manage to download itself from my brain to my phone. I don’t surf the web or read the news or watch random utube entertainment. But I do look up words and research questions. I have my Instagram account for advertising and social connections and even create my blog on the phone. I talk to you from the phone.
The other day I drove down the track with my poor beleaguered face cracked phone in its worn out case, left on top of my car, it fell, of course, and since being recovered from the middle of the road it has been acting funny. As you would expect.
So, as I wait for Saturday when I can go to the phone store, I am living in fear that my little hand held computer is going to spit the dummy completely.
I do rely on my phone and am quite unapologetic about that. It is my life line in bad weather and houses my friends and my family. It is even my camera more often than not. In fact I could not live so far from my home without this phone, so maybe it encourages bad habits – maybe it allows me to get too far away. But there you are. I am in touch with my beloveds more than ever.
But they are so expensive – phones. These little computers in our pockets.
How do people manage? I am genuinely living in fear of having to buy a new one. But without it I could not talk to family on an almost daily basis. It is a conundrum. What if I could not afford a phone?
Ah well. At least this is a problem shared with millions of people.
Tia escaped the other day – did I tell you? So I have the home cows up on the concrete pad while I get around all the fences. One last repair to do today and I will let them out again. At least I have a little hay for them, but look at that calf! Still he has to stand in the boot of the car at every opportunity.
Time to get to work then get to work. This will definitely rate as my busiest summer ever. But so far so good! The days are long and warm. Beautiful weather.
I hope you also have a nice busy day.
