New phone :o)

Not only did Caroline and I upgrade our phones yesterday, we also changed our package...

... and our provider!

Now don't get me wrong... I've been with Orange for over eight years, and Caroline for over five... and I've never experienced any problems with them. In fact, I would still recommend them for service and reliability.

However, when you're currently paying £42.50 for line rental on the two phones, and additional £8 (I think) for a text bundle, and £25 for data each month, giving you 200 minutes shared, 120 texts shared and 25MB of data shared, and still getting an overall bill well in excess of £100...

... and then you learn that for £35 + £7.50 each (£85 in total), you can get up to 1,000 minutes or 2,000 texts (or any proportional combination thereof), plus unlimited data (subject to a fair use policy of 2GB) each... you kinda realise that a trip to your local T-Mobile store is a good call!! :o)

Somewhere in this post is a picture of the phone - T-Mobile MDA Vario - plus a picture taken with the phone this morning!

Happy Father's Day

A very happy father's day to all daddies, granddaddies (and additional levels), goddaddies and daddies-to-be!

This is a very special father's day for me, as it's the first one since Amy was born! :o)

Managed to arse up the day for my Dad by leaving his card 180 miles south of here and then forgetting to get another one. Then feeling really crap when he sent a message wishing *me* a happy father's day! Sorry Pops! :o(
