I often wonder with all our modern gadgets and technology if life is easier or harder than it used to be. I feel constantly under preassure as do most people I know. I often listen to my mum and elders talking about how hard they had it - and they did. No dishwashers, washing machines, steam irons , microwaves- ready meals , disposable nappies etc.. but the seemed to somehow have a better quality of life than we do now.

How so? Modern technology has made some tasks much easier to complete. With assistance from the appliances that you have mentioned, it sees up time to do other things.
