My phone fell out of my pocket on the way to school this morning and smashed to smithereens. It was definitely not the kind of crack you can just put up with til your contract runs out and you can get a new phone – it was the kind of shattered that you don’t want to touch because of the likelihood of glass splinters in your fingers. I took it to ‘the iphone guy’ to get the screen replaced. I didn’t even know you could do that, but fortunately Troy enlightened me. It was horrifically expensive, but compared to the cost of a new phone it was really the only thing to do.

I waited until Troy’s lunch break to take the phone in so that he could come with me. We’re still finding out what’s around here, so we left the phone and took a walk through Bridge Mall and around that end of Sturt Street. I really love being able to actually do things like that on Troy’s lunch break – he takes an hour, and with everything being so close to our house we can go off and do some errands and hang out a bit.

We forgot Jericho had swimming today. Apparently we weren’t the only ones, and the office lady said she had a whole list of people to call. It doesn’t make me any less hopeless that other people forgot too, but it’s nice to know I’m not the only ditzy one who forgets these things! Anyway, I got Jericho’s towel and bathers and took them up to the school so he didn’t have to miss out. Not that he would have cared if he’d not been able to go – he was pretty unenthusiastic about it in the first place, and this afternoon he said that it wasn’t that much fun.
