#NotWithout5Things - What I Couldn't Live Without

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....

This post was written in collaboration with British Gas as part of the #NotWithout5Things project.. All words and views are my own.


  1. Hmmmm mine would be pretty much the same as yours except coffee would be replaced with tea. Or gin. AND books would be replaced with social media :) x

  2. Pretty same list here only tea instead of coffee


What do you think?
