Lent is over now and I have no doubt you are desperate to know how I got on. I have had a total of zero enquiries about it, so wait no longer! I didn't quite manage something every day, and I have to admit to a bit of cheating, where I perhaps sent two emails … Continue reading Lent Round-Up
It's time to come up with our project for May as part of the New Year's Resolution. This one is going to be difficult to measure but it's definitely a good idea. We're sorting out our draughty windows Boring but necessary! AS well as the boring replacement of ordinary windows, we are finally doing something … Continue reading May’s Resolution
As you know from my previous post on Bristol Recycling Transfer Station the recycling is sorted kerbside and into the lorry before being piled around the site. What happens to it next? Glass The glass collected at kerbside does not need to be sorted into colours – it goes to a re-processing plant in … Continue reading What Happens to our Recycling?
I think we all know by now that I don't get out much! OK I do a bit but I'm thinking that not only are you not interested in trips to the cinema, the Aerospace Museum, my brother's birthday meal, LOTS of days at work (although in the last week I have attended the inaugural … Continue reading Bristol Recycling Transfer Station

Thanks to Martin Lewis' Money saving expertise - see his website and sign up for emails here - I have found a link where those of us in the UK can order some water-saving devices FREE for a limited time. Clearly those with water meters are happy to … Continue reading Free Ways to Save Water – Limited Offer
So we’re looking to April and have decided on April’s challenge: We’re installing a water meter This is something we talk about vaguely every now and again but have never done anything about. I think the main reason is that I’ve never really liked the idea of being careful about the water I use. It … Continue reading The Challenge for April
As part of my Lent Promise I started a new petition yesterday. It’s very similar to the old (unsuccessful) one. Today’s Lent activity is to publicise said petition so here we go. In early September 2018 I petitioned the government on their own petition website. I had six months to gather as many electronic signatures … Continue reading New Petition! Please Help! (Groan!)
I’m so embarrassed! I’ve never claimed to be a perfect greenie and I’m sorry to say that I have booked FOUR plane flights this year. I’m sorry for the harm I’m doing to the planet but I forgive myself for the two holidays! We’ve already taken one – to the Canaries – and it was … Continue reading Confession Time!
Don’t worry, you’re not going to get daily updates during Lent! I will do my best to campaign on something every day and I’ll update every few days or so. Several days will cover the same project anyway so daily would be pretty tedious. I have a few ideas about suitable projects which include: Writing … Continue reading Ash Wednesday is Here
Sadly only three entrants this time – I guess I should be pleased with the 50% rise in numbers! As there were three entries and 2 prizes, I have added a third prize, a roll of paper tape, which I now use in place of sellotape. Therefore I will pull the names out of a … Continue reading Competition Result Feb 2019
