TV Lent Update

Lent is probably a lot harder when you have too much time on your hands. I've managed pretty well so far to avoid the square box in the corner, but it's probably because I've been so busy lately.

Having said that, I don't miss it at all. I find I get on with other, more important things - like fixing stuff. Or the laundry. Or reading a book.

It seems those Amish-types just might be onto something after all...


  1. Well done mate. We've had a half-baked attempt to do the same - but with a few 'get-out-clauses'. Possibly too many get out clauses though! ;^o

  2. Well, we are allowed to watch films or DVDs.
    The main thing, though, is that we don't just turn on the TV randomly in order to vegetate. We've been very good at it so far (checks pride - mustn't brag about it).

  3. We do the same, but have an extra get-out for "programs we've agreed to watch in advance- by aproval of the rest of the family.
