Travelling up to Surrey on Saturday Husband announced that he would have to get a smart phone. I should explain that we both have the most basic of models and use them very little - although apparently I use mine more than I thought - but more of that later.
'But you've only had yours a little while i.e. 4 years, and when I bought it for you you said you wanted something simple.'
'Yes, but the new car needs one.'
'Excuse me? We're buying the car its own phone?'
'Yes, so when the car is due for a service it can call the garage itself and arrange it.'
Which sounds like just an excuse - and a pretty poor one - for Husband to get a new phone if you ask me.
But it seems I'm to get one too!
I pay as I go and it turns out that I'm spending more than I would be if I had a contract which gives me all sorts of clever things and a phone for less money.
But I probably still won't be able to find it when I need it.
P.S. We had a lovely time in Surrey. Both grandsons were snuffling and coughing but when GrandSon1 offers kisses and cuddles you don't worry about things like that; you just resign yourself to getting a cold.
