As the majority of Barbara's books are historical, the stories are set in periods of time where life was either primitive, or just plain hard work. We are fortunate to live in a time where we have every conceivable convenience to make our lives "easy". What modern convenience(s) could you simply not do without?

electric light - one of the greatest inventions ever
washing machine - thank god someone had that idea
telephone (not cellphone, plain old telephone.) - connects people
vehicles of all kinds like bike/car/aeroplane/ship - well, i am a traveller Wink

I agree with all of Steffie's answers. I can't imagine living without any of those items or inventions.

If I had to pick just one thing though, it would be a pair of tweezers! Yes, it may seem trivial, but I would be miserable with a unibrow Roll Eyes

Let’s face it, no one wants to be that person who’s out of fashion. So we make great efforts to stay in style, we buy the latest clothes, accessories, some even buy electronic gadgets out of fashion, we even style our homes to be more fashionable. We would buy the style of couch that is popular these days, for example, if striped drapes were out of fashion and floral drapes were in, we’d go for the floral drapes, right? I thought so too. Now, we make tremendous amounts of effort decorating the living room, the kitchen, even the bathroom, but the bedroom gets a little less attention compared to the rest.more: http://www.kingaluc.com/blog/2017/03/new-twist-on-an-old-dresser-with-decorative-aluminum-sheet/
