Sign of the times...

Despite  living  in our modern ‘disposable society’ I have always stood by the old adage - If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

However, today - time, tide and an inevitable technological evolution have all sadly caught up with my mobile phone and I have been finally forced to say a sad and nostalgic goodbye to my trusty dusty ‘vintage’ Nokia mobile phone.

In a final ‘homage’ to a phone that has been with me for almost a decade… what can I say…

Little Nokia  you did me proud!
I dropped you, I lost you, I often left you languishing in the kitchen drawer… I never thought of you as a fashion accessory, throughout it all  your signal never let me down.

You stood stoic and reassuring in my daughter’s hand when emergency struck, you let the sad news of bereavement gently find me in the dead of night and most importantly, despite your age you were the first mobile phone to spread the joyous sound of my granddaughter’s first cry to those who needed to hear it the most…

Romantic Wednesdays at the cinema won’t be prompted by your quiet ‘2 for 1’ text and my handbag will sadly never again resonate  to your muffled (and slightly embaressing) retro ring tone in the most public places…

Through thick and thin, you did me proud little Nokia… and after all these years, uncool or not, I will miss you!
