Saturday night at our house..........



This is what it looks like in the sitting room on a Saturday night. I decreed a while ago to have a non-electric night downstairs (as much as safely possible), especially in the sitting room, so no TV, computer, electric lights, etc; chose Saturday nights. I am just about to fill the oil lamps for the winter, so we should have them up and running for next week. I sit on the sofa in the candlelight with a glass of homebrewed something or other and just enjoy the epace and quiet downstairs. One of my favourite times of the week.

What a fantastic idea. I've never managed to get that far, but do try to make a real effort to spend evening after work doing things rather than the easy option of turning the television on and just sitting there. Since I started making efforts like this I've realised how much more I appreciate the time to sit and think or do other things that I enjoy without modern technology to entertain me.
