Photo February - Day Two

Before and After
It's time to retire my phone cover - well, at least for a while, anyway. My much coveted chocolate bar cover given which Kath from Blurb from the Burbs gave me a few years ago is getting a bit tatty. Then again - I know the feel of the squidgy rubber in my handbag. The realistic cover has had many people whine about becoming hungry at the sight of it sitting on my desk. It's had comments from complete strangers while using it the phone in public.
The big problem with it, however, is that there is no hole for the camera lens. To take photos with the iPhone, the cover has to come off. Hmmm. This makes it a bit impractical when you're trying to find a photo a day for the month of February.
So, I've been on the lookout for a new cover for the phone.
There is so much choice out there. Bling covers. Leather covers. Soft covers. Hard covers. Novelty covers. Covers that play Space Invaders.
What does one choose?
Well, the one that stood out was found this morning after the gym. I snapped it up along with a birthday card for my brother in law and a new biro.
This cover sort of sums me up I think. I work with engineers after all...
I'll go back to the chocolate cover once the month is up.
Better get novel writing now.

Hi Pand,

As an engineer myself, I need to try to convince you that we are not nerds.

(Don't tell anyone I've just bought a Nexus 7 ...)

I like it!

....and fully understand the need to 'retire' the block of chocolate. You've done me proud. :)
