It's going to be breezy according to the forecast today. Not so yet - but it is dustbin collection day
It always seems to be bin day when it's windy like that - it was here yesterday, too... And then I spend hours picking litter from the garden. Well, I will when I can next see my garden!

Re: A self sufficient Christmas?

Nothing, really... Sigh. Well, I still have one Brussels sprouts plant in the garden - don't know whether that'll survive until Christmas, though.

Re: Plastic Free July

I buy my coffee (and some tea) from a very old and wonderful shop in Dundee, where they'll re-fill their own bags when you bring them back. So not 100% waste free, but I can use a bag at least 10 times rather than once!

Re: Black Friday

You mean you don't keep a spare kettle and washing machine in case one breaks Ina :lol: Know exactly what you mean though.

Re: Black Friday

I'll try to take the day off work next year - forgot all about it this time. Traffic was even worse than on a normal Friday afternoon in Aberdeen - made the bus very late, and I almost missed my connection... Absolutely can't seen the attraction of shoving and fighting to be able to say you've got a...

I was so shocked, I decided to work from home. Brrrr, not going out in that.
Lucky you that you can do that. I really don't like snow either - not when I have to leave the house!

Re: Self sufficientish in 2019

This year though, Lidl for some inane reason decided that their toilet roll tubes needed glazing on the inside, which made them waterproof and unable to quickly rot. I haven't noticed that yet - maybe I buy a different sort? I always go for Lidl's cheapest... Or they sell a different kind in Irelan...
