Selfie ...

There is something that I have come to understand over time.

My phone and the contents held within are for public consumption ... everyone else's phone and the contents held within are private ... KEEP OUT.

Every message I receive ... or photo I have taken ... or phone call I have made ... or missed ... are the business of my entire family and can be opened, discussed and queried.  But watch out if I enter within a ten metre radius of anyone else's phone ... their privacy will be protected with the zealous enthusiasm of a snarling guard dog.

As a result of this "what's yours is mine and what's mine is my own" attitude it is not uncommon to find on my phone any number of apps downloaded and photos taken ... which have absolutely nothing to do with me ... the selfie being the most common example.

Like this ...

and this ....

But surely things have gone a bit far when I find these ones ...


  1. Buster!! What have you been doing with Mum's phone?

  2. I love it! It's not just my lot who take random pictures- I cannot even glance at my eldest's phone, she will shriek like a banshee, if I may have even spotted a word - Mum is public property! x

    1. Haha ...don't they realise when they react like that it makes us all the more determined to find out what's actually on it :0)
