The Best Laid Plans

So the best laid plans.etc etc- yep, my daily Spring postings and catch ups from my holiday have to come to a standstill! Primarily, because of my own carelessness see I've lost my smart phone...Ok, this might not sound like much- but when you're in the middle of Cambodia and you loose your phone somewhere in the huge expanse of temples that is Angkor Wat.. you can quickly say goodbye to having any more contact with the outside world as you know it!
I really didn't think I was so tied up with my phone- until I didn't have it anymore. I'm not one of these people who seem to have their phone glued to their hand (Or maybe I should have, ha ha , I wouldn't have lost it!) and I really didn't think I used it that much.

 Until of course I wanted to check the time, or take a photo with it, or upload a photo or two- or send an email- or check my blog- or any blog for that matter...or goodness me, even make a phone call on it.
You don't realise what you have until you don't have it anymore!

The last couple of days have found me trying to negotiate my way around my  various email and facebook accounts, my blog lists and all my contacts, trying to change passwords and increase all my privacy's a pain! But hopefully whoever found my phone- just got rid of the sim card and did nothing with the information on it..I can only hope!
I won't really settle though, as even though  my passwords have been changed my emails may have been accessible etc etc- so i feel a little vulnerable.
Any advice out there- will be gratefully received!!

Anyway I still plod on and for the next week or so will be dependent on hotel computer and internet access- which is interesting to say the least!
So I'm going with the flow.
Posting what I can, when I can.
Reading when I can... and probably having to leave any uploading until I get back from my travels.
Which is a shame, as I had a few regular posts that I wanted to share such as 'My one photo, 20 words' and my '6 word Fridays'.
So until then, many apologies for the lack of ...well, everything...
and if you do have some wonderful words of wisdom of what I can do to salvage my now exposed '' virtual life'', I will definitely listen :)

Spring Days 20 - 23


  1. Oh no, what a pain! I don't have a smart phone so it wouldn't occur to me there would be so much you have to change. Keeping my fingers crossed you're right and they just ditched the SIM. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip too. x

  2. Oh dear, I don't suppose that there is any hope for it now, but I do hope that you manage to get everything sorted out and that all of your various accounts are safe. Take care and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your holiday. xx

  3. I'm sorry. I hope whoever found it did the right thing. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.

  4. oh no, I always worry about my email if I lost my phone as people could get into so easily through my phone. Hopefully they will have just swapped the sim card as you say, but maybe you should get a new email account just in case and log into and delete all your emails and contacts in your current one?

  5. Oh gosh, I hope you are able to manage without it, and that you can find ways of securing your information and keeping in contact when you need to. Amazed you managed to include some lovely photos in your post!

  6. Oh dear, how frustrating! I don't use my phone that much so it wouldn't so bad for me,I did lose one on a plane once. Hope you have a wonderful holiday despite the mishap. Sarah x

  7. Oh how awful, I hope you find it soon. I think I'd feel as though I'd lost my right arm if I lost my smartphone. I use it for everything. Enjoy your holiday.
