We got rid of the Tv!

Cannot believe we have actually done this, but when the bill arrived for the tv licence this year for a staggering ยฃ145!! 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

    I love it. We aren’t as brave as you, but we have started unplugged Wednesdays where we turn everything off at night, and do something together. It has been a big hit so far! With the cable bill being as high as it is, maybe we will be a no TV family sooner rather than later!

      I like the idea of unplugged Wednesdays ๐Ÿ™‚ it has been surprisingly easier than I thought to give it up. Besides if we want to curl up and watch something together we just choose a dvd instead!
