After sorting through a couple of dozen or so emails that had appeared overnight, and after doing a little checking up on blogs, and other personal sites, it was time to start some work.
First off, I got on with updating some pages on a site. The client wanted some nice new graphical links on his site, never mind that text links are better for SEO, and were, in my opinion, better to see for visitors!
After working on that for an hour or so, I moved onto a long tedious task of applying links to an existing site for a client’s client. It’s a no-brainer, but it’s monotonous and tedious work, and it takes a few hours, so I had a lunch break in the middle of it, to break it up a bit.
So, after making a roast beef sandwich, I decided to wash the dishes (when I managed to cut my finger on a glass that decided to crack apart for no seemingly good reason!) After staunching the blood – it was only a small cut, but glass can tend to go in a ltitle deep – and getting all nice and cleaned up (dulite peroxide to hand, sheesh it stings!), I prepared dinner for this evening.
Back to work, which took the rest of the afternoon. Kept me out of mischief I guess. This evening, after dinner, I’m going to listen to some music, or perhaps one of the audiobooks I have, and spend a little time chilling out.

I was reading this article at Home Economics 101
I so agree with Heather’s comments. We’d bought many of those gadgets over time, and when we moved we sold many of them on eBay, and we’ve not replaced them. Some people would probably say that some things go into the “cant live without” category, but we really didn’t use them, when we bought them before!
Sure, everyone’s mileage varies, but, for us, these were items that seemed such a good idea at the time, but rarely ever got used.
Regarding everyday cleaning items. We’ve reduced our use of bleach containing products which really aren’t good for the environment, and instead we have one of those spray bottles, that we fill with a 3% peroxide solution. You can use this for so many things from sterilizing counter tops, to using it on cuts. You can’t do the latter with that bleach-containing spray cleaner. You can use it in the washing machine too, instead of bleach, it’s kinder to fabrics.
We keep oil in a spray bottle too, and although we don’t fry a great deal of food, it’s great for using a minimal amount when we do shallow fry, and it’s good on the grill too.
I tend to “turn off” with advertising. I seldom watch TV, but if I do, within an hour, I could possibly be convinced that I need at least two new pills to alleviate the symptoms of the illness I didn’t know I had until now. I should also be eager to reach old age, so I can take advantage of that too good to be true reverse mortgage offer.
Talking about too good to be true, cynical and skeptical me says if it’s too good to be true, it almost certainly is!
