Today I fed my gizmos addiction by renewing my mobile contract and changing to the iPhone 5. At the moment I am wondering why I succumbed. I've had the iPhone 4 for about 3 years and it's a perfectly good piece of equipment. So what made me grab onto this shiny new mobile? If I'm honest I don't know. I thought briefly about it and then acted as they say, on impulse. Any pleasure I felt when I slipped it into my bag was short lived and I've upped my outgoings for the next two years. Let's face it for someone on a fixed income that doesn't make sense. I have to be honest if one of my loved ones had done the same thing I'd have been questioning their ability to reason.
Anyway, registering it and transferring my data and apps has taken most of the evening which has meant that I've neither watched tv or tweeted. However, my day has not been without enjoyment. I went with my granddaughter in the afternoon after my guilty purchase to see Quartet.
It's a sweet, rather sentimental film with great performances and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.
And on a final note my financial loss is also another's gain since I've gifted my old phone to someone in need. That at least means I can go to sleep with a smile on my face.
