A Little About Me

I'm a 29yr old first time dad living in South East London. I have been married to my gorgeous wife since September 2009. We are looking forward to the next chapter in our lives with our darling daughter, LC

So, as those of you who follow me on Twitter may have heard, I am phoneless for approx 5 days.

It started with an innocent drop of the phone when coming down the stairs and has ended in me becoming a social outcast. I have so far survived for 1.5hrs without my beloved iPhone and I feel completely distressed by the whole situation.

I use my phone for everything, Twitter, Facebook, emails (work and personal), keeping in touch with V whilst at work and receiving pics of LC to get me through to hometime. I listen to podcasts on my way to work and even use it as a satnav when I hit traffic. What am I going to do for 5 whole days?

I'm going to go in to an O2 store as the team on the phone said they would lend me a phone whilst mine is repaired or replaced. I am already panicking that they'll say they have none in store or that they won't as reported the repair over the phone. I don't know why I think this is what they'll say? Maybe I'm preparing myself for the worst. 

So, my plan is to just be brave, keep in touch with V by email for the time being and take sleeping tablets for four days until the return of my connection to the outside world. 

Have any of you ever been without your phone for any length of time? If so, did you cope better than I currently am?


  1. I often wonder how we survived without mobile phones - and more's the point, what we did without them. If I am bored, on the bus, walking, sitting on the loo (don't say you don't!) then I will play on my phone. I use to like you, to chat, hassle others, play games, read books, listen to music/podcast, send/receive pictures...

    I'm not even sure the longest I've gone sans phone... A few days ago, I was without it for about an hour, and was bored out my skull on a school run.

    But five days? That's HILARIOUS! Almost as hilarious as the people/person taking the pee on Twitter. Not that you can see, that is...


  2. I feel undressed if I haven't got my mobile with me. I use a BlackBerry and they broke a few weeks back. I did cope but I can't remember how.
