I can’t live without…

I‘ve been a bit pre-occupied lately – I had reason to (but sadly I didn’t), we’ve entered and we have Nana as a yummy house guest – and so I’ve neglected some of my favourite bloggy memes. Huge apologies all round, but frankly there’s been life to live and I’ve been living it. But over at  this week’s Listography is all about the five products you can’t live without and I couldn’t help but start musing about it. So here, in a capsule form and in no particular order, is my five.

DVD player
It doesn’t bear thinking about what would happen if DD couldn’t watch Maisy ABC at least once a day.

Food processor
Breadcrumbs for tuna/mince patties (the only protein DD eats), pancake batter, cake mixes and SO much more. I heart my food processor. Lots.

I’m sure I could live without it *breaks out in a cold sweat just thinking about it*. But would I want to? No. Nuff said.

The world is a scary enough place without taking away my slap. Seriously. I’m grateful to it for making the dark circles around my eyes a little less panda and a bit more not enough sleep. And if for the five minutes I’ve got to smear it on in the morning I am fooled into thinking I look half-decent (or at least not so scary that I shouldn’t leave the house) then it’s clearly a keeper.

There isn’t much that can’t be fixed with a decent cup of tea. I can live without peppermint, oolong, chai, lemon, jasmine and earl grey, but bog standard ‘builders’ tea, I cannot.

What five things would it break you to do without? Link ‘em up over at .

    It’s caused by the sincerness displayed in the post I browsed. And on this post “I can’t live without.
    ..”. I was excited enough to leave a thought :-) I do have some questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it only me or do a few of the remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I’d like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list all of all your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
