Day 328: What’s the Worst Thing You’ve Ever Done to Your Phone?

Cleaning the garage doors… again

When I got back from the school run this morning I noticed how dirty the driveway and garage doors were. I knew that I was going to be busy all day with work so I thought I’d squeeze in a quick half hour job before I needed to log on.

I swept the leaves and sawdust and put them in the skip. I then took a few photos for the purpose of this post and popped my phone into the top pocket of my coat.

Armed with rubber gloves and a washing up bowl full of warm soapy water, I started wiping down the garage doors and front door. If you recall, I did this job a couple of months ago but when the builders were sawing wood out there one windy and rainy day a couple of weeks ago, the dust and dirt flew about sticking to any surface it could, making it look like I hadn’t cleaned out there in years.

I was just on the last bit of the garage door and looked down to rinse the cloth. There in the bottom of the bowl was my iphone… in the horrible dirty water. I rushed into the house and wrapped it in a towel taking the protective case off in the process.

The result

The phone was absolutely fine – no damage at all. Everything was in good working order. I hadn’t even seen it fall from my pocket but it couldn’t have been submerged in the water for long. I was very lucky! I’ve been advised that I should have put the phone in rice to absorb the water but there didn’t appear to be any need.

A busy working day

Work was extremely busy today and I didn’t finish until gone 6pm. I then had the recycling bins to put out including dragging all the cardboard round to the side of the house. I really must remember to do this job before it gets dark as it would make things a bit easier for me.

We were late eating dinner and then I thought about tidying up but changed my mind and rested instead. We watched an amusing film on Netflix called Dead in a Week. It doesn’t sound like a comedy but it was.

Hope you’ve all had a good Monday.

Until tomorrow…
