    Our time is organised by them ...

    Is this sentence OK?
    "Our time is organised by them, because of shopping and preparations, but it would be so boring without them, would not it? "

    Re: IS this sentence correct?

    It would be helpful to know the context.
    Either "would it not" or "wouldn't it" at the end. Otherwise, it may be okay.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
