I was out for a walk at lunchtime making the most of the sun on a coolish winters day and noticed the amount of people either talking or looking at their mobile phones and it got me thinking back to yesteryear, well actually early 80's and when your phone looked like this
I remember getting home from work in the "olden" days and then spending the next few hours ringing my friends or family up and filling each other in on our days or making plans for the evening or weekend that was coming up.
None of this constant vibrating, beeping or flashing like there is now around a table.
We also seemed to have less emergencies then as I very rarely remember work collegues getting rang up at work due to an emergency.
Don't get me wrong I carry two mobile phones around, one work and one personal and play games on it at night but I don't walk around with it stuck in my face.
Okay rant over I am off to dust off my zimmerframe and and play words with friends on my phone LOL.....Words with Friends now that is a topic for another blog post another time!
