Hi I’m sorry you haven’t heard from me in ages – I guess you both are managing without me and my opinions! Today I want to talk about water again. After the resolution in April 2019 we have tried really hard to keep our weekly water consumption below 2m3 and have been fairly successful, except … Continue reading The Water Resolution
Sorry I’m late with November’s resolution – I’ve been on holiday (just to make you both jealous) in Majorca and somehow couldn’t find the time! We discussed possible plans at the airport during our three-hour delay but I didn’t get as far as writing it up. So November’s resolution is To eat red meat a … Continue reading November 2019
So it’s time for October’s resolution already! Where is this year going? We’ve been wondering what to do about our car use. In an ideal world we would get rid of the car and travel by foot, bike and public transport. In short, we would BE MORE GRETA It’s not an ideal world and we … Continue reading October 2019 Resolution
We're quite pleased with how we have limited our water use since the water meter was installed. We have 23 weeks of data in order to establish whether we are hitting our target of no more than 2 cubic metres per week. As you can see from the chart, sometimes we make this. The … Continue reading How is the Water Use Going?
So whether you are waiting with baited breath (what does that even mean?) or couldn’t give a monkey’s, we have decided on our September resolution. I have to say that it’s becoming more and more difficult to come up with something so I’m not too hopeful about November and December! Anyway, from September we will … Continue reading September 2019 Resolution
Hi Everyone! Sorry I've been so quiet. I've got a few posts up my sleeve but I've been struggling with the energy to write them! In the meantime I'm sure you're both desperate to know what our August resolution is going to be? Not a glamorous one like the solar panels this month, but a … Continue reading August 2019
A quick update for June - we've rejoined the library. Ok so my reading tastes aren't exactly high-brow but these are just the sort of books I would buy in paperback or for my kindle or from the charity shop. So we're saving money and resources as well as making sure the author gets … Continue reading Quick June update
We’ve been tossing a few ideas around about our June resolution and decided that we need one that doesn’t cost anything so we’ve decided to: Re-join the library This may seem very trivial and insignificant but alongside it we will try very hard not to buy books for ourselves, especially new ones. We’re suckers for … Continue reading June’s Resolution
So how did April’s resolution go? To remind us, what it was: We had a water meter fitted Not very exciting but VERY environmental. We’re doing OK. it was fitted right at the end of March so we even had a bonus of £5 paid into our new account that we's paid for last year. … Continue reading How Did April Go?
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
