Sixteen days. That’s how long it’s been since I’ve been without my iPhone. And today I got the call. THE call. It’s ready for pick-up. Squeeeeeeee!!!!! For those out of the loop, my phone has been getting repaired after Little Warrior broke the screen. You can read about my rant here.
But I now have a replacement phone and I'm a very happy Diva. So after a quick sync with iTunes and a message or two to the Architect to find out our various passwords, I was back in business.
I want to send out a big thank-you to the two phones that got me through this difficult time. The first (my old, old Dopod) died on me after about a week but the second (a $29 Samsung purchased at Australia Post) got me through the rest of the time sufficiently. So thank-you.
I would have to say: the one thing annoying about waiting for a phone to be repaired/replaced is getting used to using a new (old) phone. Waa Waa – yes, it’s a whinge and I know I’m very fortunate in many ways, but can I just say this? Please? Going backwards and trying to type texts the ole ye fashioned way was doing my head in! I became a little (more) curt in my texts, and I apologise to some people who I have totally ignored in this time. Communicating got all too hard sans my iPhone. What’s that you say? Why didn’t I just pick up the phone and call someone?
Eh? What. And actually communicate with somebody?? Pffft. I don’t recall the last time I did that.
Oh wait. Yes I do. Last week I got a gift in the mail from a wonderful friend. She posted me a copy of Julie & Julia. She knows how much I love cooking and blogging, and she highly recommended this movie to me. I had never seen the movie, but always had it in the back of my mind to watch it someday. So it was with pure delight and happiness that I opened this package last week and there was a copy of the DVD from my friend.
That definitely calls for a telephone call. A reach across the wires to contact somebody who thought of me, and thank them wholeheartedly. I watched it and loved it. And yes, now I’m somewhat inspired to start a food blog. Hmmmm…
So happy Wednesday everyone - I hope yours has been as rewarding as mine :)
