AFTER MANY TRIALS and tribulations, I have recently managed to acquire the iPhone 5.
It took so freaking long that by the time I held that small white box in my hands, 1) my nephew had been born (he was probably the size of a small orange when the first order was put through), 2) they were already talking about the iPhone 6.
I almost flushed the stupid phone down the toilet.
(... But I'm so glad I didn't because it is super expensive ...)
These days though, you basically can't pry him (uh-oh, can anybody say Anthropomorphic?) out of my fingers unless I'm in the shower or asleep.
He's currently clothed in a plain black RM 40 case I bought from the teeny phone shop opposite my office, but because I am a girl and am therefore prone to being fickle, I've been trawling Etsy for more covers that I can switch around depending on mood.
It took me a couple of hours but I think I've finally managed to narrow them down.
