No Tv

When we got back from holiday our DSTV decoder was broken...I gave it to J last week (he works for them) and he said he would have it repaired. Turns out...he had no intention of giving it back. As my DSTV account was on his staff account (can kinda compare it to Cable for my US readers) he cancelled that too and I can not afford to get my own account so thats that.

So, for 3 weeks we have had no TV. And to be honest? I dont miss it? I dont even think the kids do? i find we have far more time now to spend together. We watch a movie in the evening - and before that I really spend time with the kids and I'm loving it! I cant see me rushing to get any form of TV anytime soon!

I got Lem a 1500 piece puzzle 3 yrs ago fro xmas and we just started it :)We both got so absorbed in it we didnt even realise we worked half an hour into her bedtime!

This is how it will be when its done :) I cant wait! I am going to frame it for her room :)

We have a TV but only SABC and eTV - lol - so really no TV and its great!

D downloads stuff for the kids but we can control it 100% and they watch a little but its great not having a TV cos often you watch it even when you dont want to if that makes sense!

join the library too - it's free and you get 8 books - that's my big thing at the moment.

ps - he really is a small minded toss :)

That's such a pretty puzzle

Yet one more example of how J cannot be trusted with anything. But one less connection to him so it is a good thing. It is good to discover that there is life beyond tv!

TV is over-rated!
