We talked on the telephone. We drank wine in friend's front rooms, watching said crap tele - people visited each other more. We got movies out. We would read newspapers/magazines/books. We would sleep more We would have sex more.
I find it hard to imagine not having the internet sometimes - when it's down you really notice. Just for things like looking up numbers, addresses, shop closing times, little bits of info etc. Must have spent a fortune on 118 118 the times AOL crashes!
exactly, do you think this is detrimental? To be honest, my dd is asleep at 7.30 and so are most of my friends young children so we cant go round eachothers houses anyways, and my dh is at work so not here to speak to, drink with, have sex with lol, sometimes I think to myself, TURN THE COMPUTER OFF lol
definately helps me be less bored. But yeah, I can remember being youngwer nad living with an ex and we just didnt have the internet or hardly use it and we'd dirnk bottles of wine, play scrabble and battleships and watch loads of dvds, we just dont do it anymore but I am not sure if thats purely the net or because over lst 4 years we had a baby and could not sit down and enjoy a film or game all the way through anymore for bottles, nappies, toddlers waking up, refusing to go to sleep and us bein totally knackered!
