When I told Daddy that I had accepted the challenge of not having/using technology for a day he offered to write the blog post for me in advance. This is what he said.
"Pippa is very good at switching off and doing manual tasks, activities and finding ways to entertain herself without resorting to technology.
Also she has been a pain in the arse all day because of it, so whoever set the challenge, I'm coming for you."
I guess that he has a lot of faith in me as I was actually worried about the challenge, even though I agreed to it when Joanne mentioned it. You can read about her day and what she learnt here and read her daughters blog post about it and the rules here.
I decided to bite the bullet and get it over and done with sooner rather than later, and also to do it on a day where everyone would be at home. That way if I had to cheat I could, I mean what would happen if the formation disability scooter men came past the house again? I'd have to document that so you'd all believe me...

So today is my day of no tech.
Well, apart from a few bits and pieces. I'm going to be using lights later today and I'm going to have to go out in the car when I do my Mum's shopping and if I do Big Boy's blood tests then I have to use a little special monitor which is very most definitely modern technology but also a life saving piece of technology so I think it's allowed.
I would update you through the day, but I'm not allowed so... erm, I'll speak to you tomorrow?
