calling all iPhone addicts...

I used to have an iPhone. 
I had three in fact...two of them absolute lemons, hence the need for a third. And one particular application [the spirit level] caused the demise of my favourite Ganesh snow dome. It was so kitsch it was completely awesome. Trust me on that. You can read about that mournful little episode here. It's reasonably amusing, although it wasn't at the time. So I gave my iPhone to the first-born and got a Crack Blackberry instead. It's nice...it's sophisticated...and I lose it in the bottom of my handbag in exactly the same way I used to lose the iPhone...

But I kind of miss it.
So, I was pleased to find these fridge magnets online at Peters of Kensington...13 buckaroonies...and no application download costs.

I might have to get some. Either that or just continue to pretend it's beyond cool to give up an iPhone voluntarily. It's my story bloggy peeps...I'm sticking to it!


  1. Oooo, I like those fridge magnets. Hubby's got an iphone and I'm always stealing it. Love it, but i'm a Mac junkie. Jxx

  2. I am so uncool when it comes to technology - I actually use my daggy old mobile to make calls!!! Having said that...I wouldn't mind an iphone so I could get the hipster application - how cool are the photos they can take!!???

  3. You're not alone sweet, another friend of mine was ready to throw the iphone in the garbage in no time flat! She went back to an old-school brick and couldn't be happier. I guess it depends on what you want from your phone. But I love those magnets - might have to get the teenagers some for xmas - surely they'd be as good as the real thing?! K xx

  4. I'm even daggier than Sarah. I don't have a mobile at all.

  5. hehehe, am resisting any type of phone like this. I know that if my contractors can email to my phone instead of calling. my life is goiong to get way harder than it already is!

    love peters of kensington, they have such a great selection of lovely things. jx

  6. I was on about iPhones last week and immediately received three cheeky emails from old friends showing off what they could do with theirs!! I must be the only one holding out... maybe I'll get them all magnets for Christmas! A x

  7. I just got a chance to visit you . I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your site.So many delightful images.

  8. Hmm, technology is not my thing but these magnets certainly are!
    Wishing you a lovely evening, Kerry. xx

  9. I am always having a bad marriage with my phone no matter the brand. Have to admit I haven't tried the I phone yet :)

  10. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, Kerry! I have an iPhone, I nearly jumped ship to a BB earlier in the year, but decided to stay faithful to Apple in the end!

  11. I LOVE my BB! Its my life hahaha xx I am addicted! xx

  12. I am so out of date. I just have a standard issue work phone. I tried to convince hubby to get and iphone but no, just a boring normal phone. One day I will and I will get an igranny to put it in.

  13. Hi Kerry,
    Well, my lifestyle doesn't really warrant an iphone.....mind you, my lifestyle doesn't warrant many things, but I still have them !!!! haha.
    Maybe I should start off with the magnets and work my way up to the real thing !!
    Have a great week, Kerry. XXXX

  14. I can't believe I haven't lost my phone, I would love to replace it, but it won't go away. A bit like Buffy when I think about it.

  15. I like this post and the one before it even more !


  16. Kerry, thank you from the bottom of my heart for you kind comment. your words warmed my heart xoxo

  17. I had a big crisis a few months ago to either stick with Verizon and get the Droid, or switch to AT&T and get the iphone. In the long run, I ended up sticking with Verizon and getting the Droid. I am happy with my decision, although my sister makes fun of me because she has the iphone and thinks she's soooooo cool! :-)

  18. I adore my iphone though there are definitely things I miss about my blackberry and I think about going back because AT&T drops so many of my calls. Curious to see if you like it as well. Keep us posted...

  19. I still have a lame flip phone! And I get excited every time I think I've lost it because then I'd have an excuse to get the iphone. Which I believe will change my life. How many times have I called my husband or sister or a friend to look up an email or phone number when I'm rushing around town with my stupid flip phone? Thousands of times.

  20. Cute magnets :) I still have my good old mobile I've had for years but hubby has an iPhone and loves it - I must admit I loved it too when our computer was playing up :)

  21. Good day! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this.
    I will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!

  22. Hi there,
    Would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm looking to
    start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.

    P.S. My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've done
    a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Superb Blog!
