Natural Wonders and Instagram..or..What did i do before i had my phone?

or...What did I do before I had my phone?

Honest truth,  Pre January 2013, I had  NO IDEA why people loved their mobile phones. None whatsoever...could not see the appeal, could not understand the eye-rolling and the big groans, when people told me , friends told me...that they would NEVER ring my phone(A hubby cast-off back then)'cos they knew... 
1). I would not answer 
2). I would not have it on 
3). It would not be charged and 
4). I would never ring back...as a result of 1 and 2 and 3

Then SAMMY samsung entered my life. With me arguing HARD for why I needed a decent phone, and big doubt in husband's mind, and a rapidly growing awareness that just maybe, phones could be kind of cool....we entered the telecommunications shop. And bamboozled but fearfullly delirious, We bought my SAMMY. 
And my love affair started.

It has navigation aids! Games!An assistive light! A clock! A timer!... and takes AWESOME photos...like these shots I fired off this week from pickings gathered while walking and working.

And then there is INSTAGRAM. Oh sweet sweet Instagram.A total wonder. So... from completely ignorant to a savvy (!)hip, tekno whizz(insert serious sarcasm ) here I am!!!

My phone. My lovely, Lovely Sammy. A natural wonder.xxxxxx
