Giving up the mobile habit

As you can seen, my mobile phone is quite an old model, requiring a cable and long extension lead

My phone's battery is flat, and my charger is in Sheffield.

Perhaps this is what I've been waiting for.

I've long struggled with mobile phones. They give people the ability to jump into your life at any moment they desire. Sure, they can be useful (e.g. in the case of emergency), but they are by no means essential (I can think of 4 friends who don't own mobiles and are none-the-worse for it).

I don't like receiving calls on my mobile, and I like text messages even less (perhaps if I was a millionaire and thus could afford an iPhone I'd feel differently).

So, as of today, I'm not going to use my mobile any more (feel free to Skype or email instead, I'm online about 98.9% of the time anyway...!)
