Free to air that is..
Our family, well Marcus and I, had mumbled about cancelling Foxtel from after about a year of moving to this house (we had never had it in any previous abodes) so after 4 years of apparently umming and ahhing we finally cut ties.
The clincher for us was actually our children..
Kitty walked in one day and mentioned she was going to get her dog his 'kibble'. 'Kibble, what on earth is kibble?' 'Oh you know Mum its what Odi eats in Garfield'.
The duo both used the words 'awesome' and 'rad' far too frequently considering our children had never seen a skateboard at that stage AND I could not stand to wake up to them scrolling through the plethora of dumb cartoons that are really made for teenagers and fart, belch and have too many inuendos.
Marcus and I realised most of what we watched as a couple was either already on free to air or would be soon and if not we could just get the DVD series.. talking True Blood, Suits, Orange is the New Black etc so the only thing we would loose was The Housewives of every State in the USA, Vanderpump Rules and a few other shows that would never return us back the hour of our life we had wasted watching.
It has been at least 4 months.. we are richer in every way..
Cash, of course...
I get to watch Ellen daily instead of Housewives...
If we run out of stuff recorded we go to bed..
Best bit.. our kids watch DVD's when it is down time and never even bother to turn it on in the morning.. they just play.
Its been like us moving house.. I wish I had done it earlier.. what the *^%# was I waiting for?
Why am I sharing? In case you are thinking the same.. GO FOR IT!..
Do you have Foxtel? Have you got rid if it and loved it? What shows could you never kick?
