Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

  With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?

1,  Start walking more, it's good for your mind and your body, I already do  this I walk everywhere I can.

2, Don't drink bottled water, Landfills are already full of plastic bottles, use the tap.

3,  Recycle Recycle Recycle, as much as you can it really does make a difference.

4,  Turn off taps when you brush your teeth, don't keep it running. I do this too you get used to it.

5,  Unplug electronic devices when not in use, I was surprised by this one, about  a quarter of all residential energy consumption is used by devices in idle power mode.

6,  Design your work space, around natural light, we all know how daylight is good for mental health.

7,  Recycle your clothes, I have been doing this for years.

8,  Recycle your furniture.

9,  Insulate your home, Double glazing, loft insulation, cavity wall and simple draught excluders. Good for environment and our pockets too..

10,    Change light bulbs, Quality LED light bulbs can last 25 times longer, and use 75% less energy than other bulbs.

11,  Wash your clothes in cold water, it removes stains to.

12,  Put your clothes outside to dry, if you can't always like here in the UK, use dryer balls when you can.

I think it is important for everyone to remember that their efforts, however small, all add up and can make a big difference! If only more people would pitch in!

So agree, a little goes a long way. X
Some great ideas! I do a lot of these already, but I really need to not leave my laptop plugged in all the time. Thank you very much for sharing (and for caring - as you know, not everyone does) <3

My Messy Pasta Cupboard The Brilliant Film I Watched Last Night and Amazon Where Is My Parcel.

I went to a great pasta shop today and I stocked up on my low supply of Italian pasta, I can't stand the stuff in the Supermarket's, my Palate  being spoiled my whole life by my Italian family and their wonderful cooking. Yes I can tell when I am given supermarket pasta I am afraid you can't fool me.  Somebody who shall remain nameless was supposed to put it neatly in the Pasta Cupboard, and this is how I found it ...........................…

I watched the brilliant Dutch Film last night it was called Obsessed on Amazon Prime, it was about a family who is renovating a run down house in France and of course  lot's of things happen, I don't want to give it away but it was so good check it out if you can.

Bath, Bed and Breakfast.

After a very tiring week, work work work appointment after appointment I  just want to relax and soak in the bath, go to bed in some lovely bedding I bought last weekend and have a full English Breakfast on a Saturday Morning, There is nothing like it, I have put some of the products I used below. Enjoy and Happy Weekend folks. 💋 

Bath  I used Sanctuary Spa Body Wash, it was so relaxing and the smell of sandalwood and jasmine was lovely, and the essential oils made my skin so soft. Here is the link Sanctuary spa.

Bed  I bought this bedding from Dunelm last weekend I couldn't wait to use it I think it's so pretty I love the subtle colours  you can find it here Dunelm bedding.

Breakfast  Yummy scrambled egg, sausage, beans bacon, hash brown, and a half a tomato, just what I needed, I don't eat this everyday just at the weekend sometimes or when someone lovely will make it for me.

Ten Things I Hate.

In life you can not be happy go lucky  everyday, everyone and I mean everyone has a day where multiple things go wrong, and by the evening you just think my God anything else today.
    So I have compiled a list of  ten things that get's  on my absolute nerves I am very sure most of you have one...............

1   When you are parked in the car park and two big vans park either side of your vehicle so close  so you can't  get back into your car, Oh yes this has happened to me.

2, Other dog owners who let there dogs bark late at night and early in the morning constantly, without even trying to shut them up or take them indoors. See earlier blog post.

3  Not picking up your dog's shit. and putting it in the bin.

4 When I was younger, women who thought I was hitting on there ugly boyfriend, and pulling them away from me, and telling me to stay away from them. You must be joking.

5  Balloons at weddings why oh why would you have balloons all over your reception venue, it…

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…
