This is the view from one of the conservatory windows,
you can see a couple of bits of my ceramic work to the left of the picture
.....a former life I once had.
I'm sure if the neighbours saw me they would have shrugged and said "she's off on one...... again".
And little do they know, I'm on a mission.
What a beautiful morning it is today, we are so lucky to live on such an amazing planet and what are we all trying to do, destroy it!
So from today I am going to be even more planet sensitive, I've given myself a list of another 5 new green goals.
I already grow lots of my vegetables and some fruit, I recycle - all garden waste, glass (every wine and beer bottle, along with sauce and jam jars) by the way, always by your sauces in glass bottles these are so much easier and quicker to recycle I understand.
I also recycle all tin and anything that comes in foil.
I collect and recycle all plastic, from tooth-paste tubes to plant pots.
All fabric and clothing are recycled in one way or another, charity shops, quilts and re-makes, even old net curtains protect my raspberries from the birds, instead of plastic netting.
But from today I shall make a more concerted effort my goals are:-
1 Not to buy food in plastic bags or packaging that's unnecessary, including plastic
carrier bags that shops just give out willy nilly and without a thought.
2 Turn off every thing electrical that we are not using, at the switch, that includes
you, precious son of mine.
3 Not to buy anything that I don't need. (that one could be difficult especially in a
fabric or art shop).
4 Pic up other peoples dropped litter along our road, why are people so disgusting?
5 Collect fir cones from the wood, to eek out the kindling.
I am now going into town on the bus........ that's if their not on strike!
Join me if you can, just 5 little adjustments in each of our lives will help make a difference, let me know your 5, and if you like the idea, please pass it on to others and ...........lets see if our blogging can make a difference.
