Ann’s WORK phone looked like something out from the dark-ages that had also been run over by a steam-roller. In a previous life it appeared to have spent most of its day throwing itself against a brick wall, judging by the amount of dents and scrapes on it. Add to that, it was a standard yukky grey colour. Enough already! it was time to put it out of its misery – or in a drawer somewhere without its charger!
In contrast, her personal phone is a thing of beauty – a Nokia 6500 Classic, in limited edition pink – and after two years ownership, not a mark on it. I wondered if I might be able to locate the same model on eBay. Even better, if I could find one in a sort of non-conformist limited edition colour, that would be brilliant!
Success!!! – A limited edition design in piano black, more than £150 new, SIM-free, if you shop around on the ‘net, but just £85, courtesy of a successful search on eBay.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
