Trials with technology!


Back in the old days, pencil and paper ruled the world. I, like everyone else, learnt to write with a pencil and I still love the feel and sound of it against the paper. But this archaic method of communication apparently is no longer up to the job – it no longer cuts the mustard, it has been declared passe. I’m told that I now need to do things electronically!

I have accepted letters, email, facebook, twitter, web pages and on-line shops but now the time has come to commit my diary to electronic media. I have resisted, continuing to carry round a veritable tome in my bag, in which I plot the daily movements of the whole family – keeping us all on track and on-time (mostly) like the captain of a ship.

We have simply become too busy for the whole family to rely on me and my book – we all need to make appointments when we’re not together to check if the others have any commitment clashes – “oh no I can’t do that”,I cry, “I’m supposed to be taking Little Miss to x,y,z!”

And so I have taken the plunge and got myself a Google calender (other online calendars are available) and synced it to my phone – get me! Just how efficient this will turn out to be remains to be seen – I’ve spent the past 4 hours sorting it all out and it involved the creation of numerous email accounts and access to several mobile phones. I’m not convinced and it was alarming looking at dates for Christmas.

Hopefully it will work though – I might save at least a little weight in my bag – but in the mean time, if I’m not somewhere when I’m supposed to be, please, dear friends, it’s not my fault – blame it on the technology.

  1. It sounds like a fab idea. I have reservations as well. I still use the trusty calendar on the kitchen wall but it’s getting now that half the things are not written on there. I like the idea of having it centralised but we have awful internet access and I have a rubbish phone. So much for the technological era!! 🙂
