It’s hard to remember life without the internet. Looking back, I sometimes wonder how we ever survived?
There is no doubt, the world wide web has transformed our lives. It is invaluable in so many ways. I love it for giving me access to information I need at a drop of a hat. In particular, answering those difficult questions my children constantly ask. Just the other day, my young son wanted to know: How do clouds form, and where does wind come from? Thank goodness for Google, is all I can say!
As a busy parent, juggling a full-time job with the needs of two small children, a husband, a dog and two cats, the internet has been a godsend.
Perhaps one of the main benefits is the fact we can now shop and pay for almost anything we need online. Long gone are the days when I go into a blind panic remembering a loved-one’s birthday is coming up and I have no time to travel into town and trawl around the shops. Now, all I have to do is search for the perfect present online and pay for it via my credit or visa card. I can keep a track of my orders too and even choose when it can be delivered – simple!
Online payments don’t just stop at shopping, however. My children’s school has also just taken advantage of some software, developed by ParentMail, which takes the hassle out of paying for school trips, meals and events online. Click here for more information.
