Life is just a little mental at the moment; at some point I’ll explain, I promise. It’s mental for really good reasons, and it makes me smile. But somewhere amongst all the craziness of the last month, there’s always time for the simpler things in life.
Namely a Sunday morning pancake session with my nephew, but with one little difference… FaceTime. Seriously, how much has technology changed our everyday lives, to the point I can have a full on cooking session over the telephone?!
About 8 years ago, I remember answering a questionnaire about mobile phones and whether I’d want to watch TV or movies on one, and would I be interested in video calling. Crikey, no; I remember replying. I suppose then a phone was still a phone and the most advanced thing my trusty old Nokia did was let me play ‘Snake’ to kill the time on my train commute to work. But now it’s all different… my trusty iPhone is loaded up with apps, films, music and things to keep my life in check. My iPhone is pretty much my life all in one handy little place.
