That might seem like a weird combination to you – but that was my shopping list today. Both are actually obvious. Chocolate? I always need chocolate and I am more than delighted to drop a number of bars of dark chocolate in my carry on luggage. Either I will eat them on the way or have chocolate tasting when I get home.
Without a working phone, I have no clue as to time. My apple watch effectively died last Oct/Nov. It just wouldn’t hold a charge for more than 4-5 hours. Inquiring at the Apple Store, since it is one of the very early series, they would have to special order the battery and then there would be a replacement charge without a lot of guarantee. It was suggested that it might be faster and easier to just buy one of the new, shiny Apple Watches. I demurred.
Since I have been living without a watch for a while, I have a pretty clear idea of what I need: I need to be able to check the time and having the date displayed is a bonus. I really don’t need it to monitory my exercise, buzz with GPS turns, give me txt or email message. I just need to know the time. Setting an alarm? That might be useful as well.
Asda has a small store in the corner of Sainsbury’s. Electronic kiosks for ordering, a nice woman behind the register who collects payment and fulfills orders. I am now the owner of a simple. resin band, digital faced watch. It was not expensive at all. Comparable in price to what I used to buy 20 years ago.
Early supper and packing. My 0415 taxi for the airport is going to feel early.
