When you are in a long-term relationship with your phone, computer and diary sometimes all you can think of is “God. I wish we were on a break.” I once left my phone at a friends house one night and all I could think about was incoming emails and Tweets that would go unanswered until morning. I fondly think about the times when all a phone could do was well, phone. Well that and my sleep was left uninterrupted by thoughts of hashtags, @ symbols, and perfectly crafted subject lines – the life of a PR girl. Yes, life was simple then, but thankfully, a Scottish Girl boss has managed to marry the written with the digital with her new stationery sets with integrated app to keep us with a healthy and productive mind.
