Well I think it's fair to say autumn is on the way. A dimmer switch has turned down the evening light all of a sudden! I like to accompany my weekly blog with a photo or two. I tend to use the camera on my smart phone, as it's with me the whole time, then I email it to work. Unfortunately, no pictures this week because the phone had an unexpected accident!
I arrived back at home on the Isle of Wight, having had a lovely journey down the A3 (going through the new tunnel at the Devils Punch Bowl for the first time. It's around a mile long and saves so much time!) Hopped on the ferry and arrived home in good time. We unloaded the car and that's when a little panic set in… Where's the phone!??
We searched the car – high and low. The amount of rubbish we found under the car seats filled a carrier bag immediately! No phone to be found, but I knew I had it in the car as I checked it just before getting off the ferry. We emptied suit cases, rucksacks, car door side pockets and the glove box as well. But still, no phone.
I looked at the rubbish I'd collected from the car and I realised there was one place I hadn't checked. The kitchen bin! When we arrived I'd popped a few things in the bin from the car. I headed to the kitchen and lifted the bin lid, and there was the phone, but not the phone of five minutes ago. My phone was covered from top to toe in custard!
I fished the phone out. It was typical; the custard had missed everything in the bin other than my phone. My phone had become a magnet to custard! The custard was slimy and watery so when I took the phone apart to give it a clean it had reached all of the electrics as well as the sim card, memory card and battery. The custard even made its way behind the screen! You won't be surprised to hear the phone doesn't work!
Hopefully it's covered by my insurance!
Hope you can join me, take care and see you soon
Ps. I never want to see custard again
