Yy tee. My mum has always.been v artistic, and as her health has declined (parkinsons) she has moved to printing, and now iPad apps. Were it not for technology her opportunity would be much more restricted
Thank you for linking to my post! It's been really interesting to see how this has spread - about 10 bloggers have said they'll do the no technology challenge for a day.
But equally many have said they couldn't even contemplate it for an hour, and the sticking point seems to be giving up the smartphone/internet access. Yet 5 years ago most of us didn't even have these gadgets.
I see so many parents getting their knickers in a twist about children's screen time & online activity, but really it seems like it's the adults who are most addicted.
I got very twitchy when I was offline for a day, but at the same time it was quite peaceful and I got way more done without internet distractions. I think I'm going to do it more often.
I took up the challenge! I did it yesterday (will be blogged tomorrow!). I had to keep the phone on as I was mostly alone with two little ones and needed to be contactable by hubby and pre-school. I didn't find it too difficult although catching up today, I was so irritated when my husband came home and spent the whole time on his phone, it really made me think!
I am loving reading other people's posts about this. Glad I'm not the only one who looks at their iPhone first thing in the morning. Some interesting comments from people saying that they got sore hands from writing more than usual - are we developing keyboard-only fingers??
