Thank Goodness; All Contacts Are Still There

Apparently I am not as smart as the phone!

Apparently I am not as smart as the phone!

S – all quiet at work. Just going to have a go at using the Blackberry my daughter has given me now that she has her coveted iPhone 5S. No idea how to use it so watch out for some dodgy texts or a possible break in transmission!

C – ok – you could Google some instructions. God it is so hot I think I am going to melt. Just had a call from estate agents asking me to work tomorrow – some launch of new builds. Of course I said yes as I need the money but could do without it. Who has a launch on a Tuesday – surely Saturday is a better day? Still makes a change from charring suppose.

S – ok – I now have a “Smart Phone” but I am clearly not “smart” myself as I seem to have wiped off all my contacts – good job I know your mobile number off by heart.

Later …

S – now have SIM back in old phone (all contacts are still there, thank goodness) and I have reapplied the selotape to keep the back on. Think it will be safer to persuade one of my children to show me how to use the Blackberry when I get home.

C – at least all contacts are still there. I have just seen two rather large ladies in maxi dresses heading to the garden centre for lunch – lucky things. However, think their money would be better spent on purchasing a mirror – very beastly of me but true.


Who Needs All That Hair Pulling

S – how goes it with you. Due to complaint re use of phone I am sitting in the loo texting.

C – bloody pain in the neck. I am knackered already – I need a rest!

Later …

C – I am struggling to stay focused could do with a nap. Got a viewing at the smart apartment tomorrow – it is on for £950,000 so would be great if I could sell that one – champagne would be required me thinks.

S – that would be a coup – everyone would be gnashing their teeth and we would be having a posh spa break with the full monty.

C – yes, last spa day seems like a very distant memory now, could just do with a full body massage to relieve the tension between my shoulder blades. Not so keen on the Indian head massage; all that hair pulling is a bit sadistic and it hurts, just can’t see the benefit myself, it’s torture.
