Cannot believe we have actually done this, but when the bill arrived for the tv licence this year for a staggering £145!! We decided to see if we could cope without the big black box in the sitting room. I asked Josh to remove it whilst Ayla was in bed, I wanted to see if she would notice it had gone. To my surprise, the very next morning she went into the sitting room and instantly came running back to our bedroom, ‘Mummy… Daddy… Where’s Telly Gone??’
To kick off life without a telly we went for a walk in the woods…. as you do 🙂
We did some home fun crafting, with one of Ayla’s birthday presents …Thank you Katie 🙂 Check out Katies blog at http://katielovescrafts.blogspot.co.uk/
We did some more walking….
This time the cat came too…
And I fell over in the mud
We made den’s and tents 🙂
We visited out feathery friends…
We set trends…
And we got the telly back….. only joking! Im amazed at how easy it has been to give it up, even Ayla has got over her initial shock 🙂
Now, instead of sitting in front of the box we sit in front of each other or we watch a dvd on the laptop. It has been nice to go for walks all together as a family, sometimes its to easy to just curl up and watch the box on these colder days, but not nearly as much fun as putting your wellies on and going out for an explore.
So go on grab your wellies this week instead of the remote, you’ll thank yourself you did!
