It must be a duck.
28 days to go before the 3rd annual Duck races in the Carding Mill Valley. May 29th for those not numerically inclined.
Guess what I’ll be spending the month doing! Yes, chief organiser that’s me. And looking after ducks is just one of my talents 🙂
Ducks in Dry Land Training
Today I helped co-ordinate the installation of energy meters into local homes (so people can see how much energy they are using, be shocked and then cut back). Continued to support my local green charity by doing more fiddly bits for their annual big event. Duck racing….stay tuned for future posts.
I contacted my local hopefully soon to be ex-MP and my hopefully soon to be new-MP about issues concerning the environment, human rights, and the deficit.
Went running, wrote my blog (for a change) and did laundry with biodegradable non-animal tested laundry liquid. Managed a few meaningful messages on Twitter (Greenpeace and the third runway, that would be a no thank you). Sent some businesses type emails out and most fun of all, invoiced clients!
And I haven’t done any better contributing to this blog, since my obviously meaningless promise. Excuses? I have a selection.
I’ve been busy with my photography. Preparing to launch myself into the world of the professional shutterbug (not, as I hasten to add, as a paparazzi). Still as long as someone will pay me, that will count for now.
Also always busy saving and greening up the world and now tweeting. You can follow me on Twitter as TrulyUsefulCo. My tweets are twitters ie. not terribly meaningful yet! I haven’t quite worked out social networking (no kidding eh?!).
So saving the world and green tips for this week. 1. Don’t buy it. 2. No, I really mean don’t buy it!!!!! See looks what happens when you collect too much junk…
Welcome to my new blog. Originally I called it “Its My World” but since then I have decided I need a theme. And I feel safe making these changes because no one but me read it before anyway %-)
Initially this was going to be random reflections, but for me being too random is synonymous with avoidance. I end up doing nothing because I can’t decide what to do. I need a bit of structure. Just not too much though!
This blog thing is a pretty spontaneous leap. Something I came up with in my mid-morning and sadly pre-coffee state. (that will change shortly)
I have one or two ideas (I always do) about what I’m going to do here. Its going to be hippy, green, eccentric and perhaps inspiring or exasperating. Disclaimer: have no expectation!
