I have been a little lax in posting this blog but am happy to report that all is still going well on the rubbish front.

We are still only having one bag of rubbish a week and most collections the recycling bin is now only half to ¾ full which means we are now actually reducing the total amount of rubbish being brought into the house.

The glass recycling box gets emptied approx every 3 weeks which is also a good thing as this is more frequently than before but also backs up my idea of buying things in glass rather than cans as glass is a more readily recyclable material I believe, and I'm sure I read this somewhere.

Hopefully I will be able to post a little more frequently and keep things more up to date.


Well the boys are now both finished for the school holidays, so we will be trying to do things which don't cost a lot of money or involve loads of travelling.

We are lucky in that we live only 15 miles from the beach (Mablethorpe/Cleethorpes), so a picnic and some beach games and the boys are fairly happy.

On a brighter note, the weather has been glorious the last few days, so we have been eating salads etc which don't involve a lot of cooking only new potatoes.

I am also going to do an online delivery for groceries end of next week which will hopefully last us most of the holidays, with just a few bits of salad etc picked up if needed when/if we do go out; I will also be having my veg/salad box delivered each week so shouldn't need to pick up too much.

To help on the fuel front, where I live the trees were being pruned/cut back so I asked for all the wood, now have a nice pile for Dave to work through ready for the winter.
He will also be working on fitting the shower screen so that we can use that instead of baths. Will be alot easier when the boys have been playing out all day.
