This weekend has been a blur for me. Madelyn needed a phone now that she has started high school and my mobile plan was up for renewal, so on Friday I became the proud new owner of an iPhone 6 and it has taken me all weekend to try and set it up. If iCloud wasn’t shared between Hubby’s iphone, my iPhone and both our iPads I would have been able to do a straightforward back up from iCloud but alas insufficient memory meant that was just not possible.
So while I was entering contact details and notes, clearing out emails and transferring photos that I wanted to keep, I kept telling myself that this a good thing, it was like a spring cleaning of my phone, it just that it’s now Sunday night and most of my music has not yet been downloaded and even though it’s a lovely shiny gold phone with heaps more memory and an impressive larger screen, it just doesn’t feel comfortable yet.
My old phone was like an extension of my arm, never far from my reach, this new phone feels foreign and so unfamiliar. It’s almost as though I am afraid of it. Maybe once the newness has worn off, it will feel like it should, let’s hope so. On the plus side at least Madelyn’s happy.
