I like to change things around a bit… Most of the time I re-arrange furniture (which Wayne LOVES), but I also like to update, change and re-make things I’ve got.
Like this phone station. I made this last year to hold the phone and as a place to charge up our mobile phones. Back then we had normal dumb phones.
Now we have smartphones and they’re bigger than the old ones…
BTW, who saw that coming? Mobile phones kept getting smaller and smaller, then suddenly the trend was reversed and they got bigger and bigger, the bigger the better.
With the new mobile phones and kindles all needing charging…
…and there’s another thing. Back when mobile phones were small and stupid, every single phone had a different charger cause heaven forbid they made things universal. Every household in the world had a drawer full of mobile phone chargers which didn’t fit any phone in the family.
Now, the kindles and smartphones use the same chargers. Will wonders never cease!
So anyway, as I was saying, the new smartphones and kindles didn’t fit on the narrow shelf which used to hold the old mobiles. And sitting them on the top shelf was to risk them sliding off and breaking.
It was time for an update.
This is what it looked like before:
A small, simple change which makes life a little easier, or neater.
Now if I could just convince Wayne that we should never cook in the kitchen, I might be able to keep the entire room neat…
