You'd save up for a freesat box really quickly if you got rid of Sky first. It would only take you a couple of months.
Sufficient for the day are it's own worries.:cool::cool:
On another note wee one's school have a total ban on nut products. Having searched in vain for lunchbox treats acceptable for both school and a sophisticated 5 year old (or so he tells me he is;)) I found totally nut free muffins, flapjacks and Cupcakes by a certaain fabulous baking company.

Hi. We have tv but don't pay a license. We wrote to explain that we only use our tv for DVDs/consoles (which is entirely true!) 9 years ago.

Tv catchup sites are a new luxury which is a great thing for us to use occasionally.
Hope it helps.

Full details are on the tv licensing website
