5 items I couldn’t live without

1.My laptop.Ask anyone that knows me,it makes my life so much easier,from on-line banking to setting up remote record for the TV,ordering food shopping,browsing and buying things from Ebay,keeping in touch with family and friends(I don’t drive and find it especially difficult using buses with 5 kids and a double buggy.)I also enter competitions online and hunt for bargains.

2.Washing Machine-With 5 kids it is an essential item,we recently got a lovely new one a lot  bigger than our previous one.It makes my life much easier.as does…

3.Tumble dryer-So much easier when you have children,not as essential as a Washing machine but very nice to have all the same.I do try my best to use a washing line when the weather and time allows.

4.Sky TV-My luxury item.We have SKY plus HD and I love the fact I can record so much and watch them at a time convenient for me.With 5 young children that tend to often have control of the TV it’s lovely for me not to miss Eastenders,Neighbours and my soppy Rom-coms I love to watch.

5.Books-I almost forgot this.I have loved reading and would say I have a Passion for reading as long as I can remember,it was inherited from my mum I think.These days I only read in the bath but I always have at least 1 book on the go.At some points in my life I’ve read a book in a day or 5 in a week,with a large family and a comping and Facebook addiction this is no longer a possibility.Once the children are older I look forward to reading more.My 11 year old son is developing a love for reading which I actively encourage,I hope all of my children will enjoy reading eventually.
