British Gas have released a lovely little video asking people what things they couldn't do without in their lives. The answers are varied from obvious ones like family, to beer! Have a look for yourself, I really liked the video, and it made me think about what I really couldn’t live without. We really couldn't live without our energy supply, and it makes you think about the cost and also saving energy. The Source website has a lot of tips on how to conserve energy to save money as well as caring for the environment.
What five things could you not live without? I was challenged to come up with my five. It's really quite difficult when you think about it, go on, have a go!
1. My Family
For obvious reasons. They are my world. As much as I moan and complain about their untidiness, the noise, their nose-picking, house-destroying ways... I love them loads and I couldn't manage without them.
2. Coffee and Biscuits
Just because. They are my little treat.
3. My Books
They keep me on the straight and narrow at uni. If I am not in a library, or reading, I am in a book shop, or using an online library. Pretty much constantly.
4. My Laptop
I am not a massive Internet addict as these things go. I only ever use the Internet when I'm at home or for work purposes, but having said that - I do spend a lot of time online - probably more than most. There are worse habits!
5. A Nice Long Bath
At the end of the day I like to soak in the bath and unwind. Some days I am so busy that I just need to wash off the day!
What couldn't you live without?
Oh I almost forgot. Wine. Obviously I couldn't live without wine....
