Monday confessional

Forgive us readers, for we have sinned. Here’s our second confessional and what a biggie it is too. Last week, we tripped off to Devon for a few days of sunshine, sand dunes and salty air. We were self catering and were positioned a mile from a rather delicious Waitrose. Being supermarket snobs, we were […]

Sunday roundup

Well, we skived off to Devon for a jolly old shindig and most of you didn’t even realise. Such is the power of modern technology. You can pop off for a jaunt around the country and the blog fairies take care of post dating your thoughts while you’re away. Shame they don’t do the housework […]

Weekly weigh in number three

Rubbish Ramblings

I can’t believe how quickly my thoughts have changed about this whole ‘zero waste’ challenge lark. When we started out, just three short weeks ago, there was a man who put in many comments all across the site; John Costigane . He really was a stalwart (don’t know if you are still reading John?) and […]

A little recycling retail therapy

I’ve been browsing the internet for recycling solutions and for goods made from recycled materials. The amount of products out there is amazing and choices are growing all the time. I thought it might be fun to round up a few goodies from some popular online Eco stores. Not mentioning the ‘C’ word or anything, […]
