Only a Phone... A-Z Challenge

Two days ago I was walking to collect my children from school, slightly weighed down by gift bags as we were heading to my niece and nephews' birthday party soon after. I was about to put my phone back into my pocket after speaking with my husband when it just slipped through my hand and went screen down onto the concrete. I was gutted!

Okay, I know it's just a phone. I'm missing it though and I know that sounds maybe a bit pathetic. I really don't care. I have several friends that I like to keep in touch with because they're both having a tough time at the moment. It's much easier to keep up with each other with texts throughout the day rather than calling once in a while where we're surrounded by bickering toddlers and can't hear a word the other is saying. I'm going to use my skype on the laptop to keep in touch with one but gosh I miss just firing off a text to them and to my Husband!

I also miss my camera on it. My actual cameras have cards that no longer fit into my new laptop. Of course now I've had them both for about 4 years the cables are well, goodness knows where. Yes I'd like to use them but my phone camera is so good and it's so quick and easy to load my photos up that I miss it. I take a lot of photos of my children and what I get up to throughout my day so I'm not embarrassed to say I'm a little lost without it!

I feel I have a good balance in life with my phone. I'm not obsessed, I'm just used to a certain way of doing things. Short cuts if you like. Checking my money on the go, snapping my day, keeping in touch with those closest to me in a quick and easy way when they're away (hubby) going through a tough time or possibly in labour! I write a lot, I love reading, I do 'stuff' with my children but yes, I miss my phone. Here's hoping it's fixed within the week!

  1. I've only had a smart phone for just over a year and I don't know how I'd manage without it....
    I hope your phone is fixed soon x

  2. Oh I totally get this! It drives me mad not having a phone. That said, I have always worked a little bit on my phone, so when I am without it, it's strangely liberating. Actually I really should ignore it more often! I bet a tiny part of you will be a bit disappointed to have it back!x

    1. You know? I think you're right. I hope (well, i intend to) have it on less. I do miss things that id o on it as listed above, but i think it'd be good to scale back on the usage! x

  3. God I feel the same, it's fortunate that currently I have so much work on that I'm not having any decent meals, how on earth would I snap photos of my food?! And scrolling through instagram just isn't the same on the laptop! x

  4. I'd be lost without my phone, but at least I take a precaution and make sure all photos are automatically updated via dropbox to my laptop and home computer. Those are the most important things I'd miss if something happened to my phone.
