These are the words my husband said to me in desperation as we sat in a foreign bar watching Wales play France at rugby. Of course, I was on my phone. The wifi in our hotel was dreadful and I’d been out of contact with the rest of the world for all of ten hours – I was getting withdrawal symptoms!!
It was at this point that I realised just how dependent I am on my mobile. I check it at least five times an hour and as soon as I hear that little noise indicating I have an email or text, my heart is all-aflutter. I don’t know why, because it’s rarely anything exciting.
So for the next few days I left it in our room during the day and only peeked at it in the evening. Funnily enough, I didn’t miss a whole lot, but I’m so glad I’m back in internet land. Hello world!!
