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 Summer Roller Coaster.

Hi to all my dear blog readers, sorry I have not been around for a few months, I had to take time off. I have had one of worst summers of my entire life, so as you can appreciate this post is the hardest I have ever had to write.
  In the Summer I lost my beloved Mother, she had been ill for a while but over the summer weeks she got worse and died at the end of the season, even though it was expected it was still a massive shock,  at times I cant believe it has happend and other times life is normal, and other times the sense of loss is unbearable. I lost my best friend the women who knew me  best of all didn't judge me and was the wisest person on the planet whose advice will never be forgotten and passed on, I was never going to write on the blog ever again, thinking I would have a blank head and never being able to get my  feelings out and turn them into words.  But my younger Brother said you need to go back on your blog it will do you good and distract you, you are creative …

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
