A very wet Saturday and a dead TV

Our TV died,  after 5 years sitting on the same slightly ill fitting cabinet shelf it just suddenly fell forward onto the floor. It only cost $50 so it’s served us well, I don’t think it will be hard to find another cheap one.

We woke up this morning to heavy rain and though I had jobs to do hubby is a bit like a caged lion when stuck inside…and no golf! No TV!! So 🙂 This was our day…


Bob is 18, he doesn’t do alot whether it’s fine or raining, this is his favourite spot on a cold day.


Roger decided to finish putting the insulation in the ceiling….he had been putting this off for a while. This was obviously a very tiring job.

My darling does have a head but would prefer I didn’t blog it all around the world, he said : )


I have been in and out of the kitchen much of the day, the zucchini and tomatoes are nearing the end and I wanted to get them done and some more figs bottled.


And for an easy tea, toasted sandwiches with bacon, eggs, cheese, tomato and barbecue sauce.

Tomorrow I ain’t cooking a thing except for tea and it’s supposed to be raining again….still no TV, BUT I have a good book waiting to be read, lots of firewood in the box and a couch!

  1. Pity you are a bit far away otherwise we could give you a large TV. My wifes family moved in together and they gave us there big screen lcd up to that point we had a hug old crt that did us just fine and would never have been replaced if we had to pay for it 🙂


    • Aw, that’s nice, thank you for the kind thought anyway lol. My son has an old one he is going to give us, only after offering to buy us a new one! We do have the money to buy one if we wanted but just don’t see a need for it – old TV’s work just fine 🙂


  2. True frugality! I mostly use our tv for viewing DVDs from our library, although PBS and CBC carry quite a lot of interesting programmes. What do you use the marshmallow herb for? I remember reading about it years ago, but the uses have now slipped my mind. ~ Linne


    • Hi Linne. I tend to read more than watch TV but Roger likes his telly in the evenings, we both enjoy nature programs. We have another now – my sons old one so that’s good !! Marshmallow tea is good for asthma and bronchial coughs …haven’t tried it before but thought we’d give it a go, especially with winter coming up.
