weekly round up 23Howdy lovely people. We’ve had a poorly Little Miss green kind of week, but she’s on the mend now and back to her bouncy, inquisitive, asking-non-stop-questions self. Thank you for all your well wishes; she appreciates them and so do we 🙂

On Monday I arrived safely back from the dark, deep, rather smelly bowels of my fridge. I had a spot of Divine Inspiration while I was scrubbing hard cream off the shelves. Find out what my epiphany entailed.

During the week, we met up with a kindly man from Gloucestershire County Council to discuss exciting plans for zero waste week. Alas I had to make a swift purchase in the shop; find out what went into the landfill in honour of our guest.

Mid week, we shared some rather exciting news about Frustration Free packaging. Find out what Amazon are up to and see if you can have a green Christmas after all.

Tracey Smith, author of the book of rubbish ideas has a treat in store tomorrow on her site. Read all about it and find out how you can take part

We’re back to our weekly weigh ins. This week were we celebrating or commiserating? Find out here!

Little Miss Green insisted that part of her recovery entailed me working in the kitchen while she rested on the sofa. Find out what chores I did all in the name of medicinal baking.

At the end of the week, I invited you to get all Ooffoo’d up. Find out what on earth I am talking about here.

We’re way behind with competitions, challenges and dustbin demons, due to round-the-clock nursing here at Chez Green. But panic not; we’ll soon be back on track. You’ll learn which one of us had a zero waste Birthday, how much waste we have in our bin and we’ll be back for more rubbish adventures next week.

Don’t miss it!

  1. Glad to hear Lil Miss G is feeling better.

    We’ve sort of lost our way this week. Partially due to our new purr boxes and partially because Master P has decided to be the saviour of all. Yesterday he decided we were going on a litter pick :O Now I don’t mind doing this, infact I do take part in a regular one at a local park and have the neccesary equipment to do it, but my problem is that usually the bags then get taken away by the local authority. This time it’s my bag and my responsibility to dispose of. I will have a quick look through tomorrow to retrieve the lager cans, coke cans and vodka bottles to add to our recycling, but the rest will sadly be added to our landfill bin 🙁

    On a plus side, I have decided to use the council dog waste bins as a deposit for dog waste collected at home and the newly acquired cat waste. It keeps our bin smelling sweater and I’m told that this waste is put in a seperate part of the landfill to do it’s stuff. When I get them onto the woodchip/sawdust litter, I’ll put it into the compost bin, but this clay stuff looks a bit to heavy to mix in.

    Thank you Sarah – must have been all those cyber hugs 🙂

    Poppy, it’s lovely that Master P wants to do a litter pick. Did you see the story in this weeks (last weeks?) Citizen about the girl who was organising litter picks? I thought it was wonderful.
    I think we can let you off a heavy bin for clearing up other people’s rubbish; you are providing a wonderful service to your community.
    What a great idea about the cat and dog poop!
