It was my birthday last week. 40 what? Can't quite believe it myself. Is that really me in the mirror? Huzz says "looking good honey"!! He always has the right words for me! Why do I seem to be attracted to all the ads for eye creams promising to make my tired eyes look like a bright and bushy 16 year old's again, and using more moisturiser than ever before these days! Well, at least I didn't receive the aforementioned eye (or should I say wrinkle) cream as a gift. Now that would be a sad pressie don't you think?
Becoming another older had its perks though - Huzz gave me an iPhone. I'm giddy with excitement about this! I'm not a huge gadget / technology buyer, but I had kind of mentioned that I didn't like my old phone (if you press it too close to your ear when chatting it cuts out - quite annoying). Huzz is expecting delivery of his work iPhone soon, and said he didn't want me to get all jealous on him so bought me one in advance of his arriving. Yay!
Now anything from those lovely people at Apple pleases me no end. I don't think I'd be blogging or creating a family website if I hadn't got my MacBook - there's something about it that makes me want to use it (as opposed to my old PC which gathered dust for weeks on end).
Apple get me everytime with the packaging, just so delightful in itself, well made and so stylish - you just know you have something of great quality inside. Lovely matt black box with silver Apples. Pictures of the iPhone icons on the outside. A couple of white Apple stickers inside (not sure where I'd stick them but who cares?). A little thingy to pop out the SIM card. Lovely neat plug, charger and earphones (nothing new, but designed so well). And I love that on all the packaging it states "Designed by Apple in California" - Oh yes I just love that (makes me feel like I have a bit of that sunny Californian lifestyle in my pocket).
So now I am busy trying to discover all the super functions and stuff it can do. Huzz isn't around much this week to do his usual photographic assignments I request, so you might even see a few tryout iPhone photos popping up instead.
