I was debating the other day on whether to put some pretty binding on a couple of towels that had frayed at the edges when my son pointed out they were there old PE towels from when they went up to big school at 11 , hes just had his 25th birthday . AARRGGHH
Then my daughter has discovered one of those facebook things that tells you stuff for free on Amazon the deliveries are rolling up daily and i just find this appaling. WHY? just because its free it doesnt mean you need it does it? I have a theory that its how companies are getting round environmental disposal rules. I read the other day that Sweden has an electric generating plant that incinerated bales of clothes as fuel . So why are we producing more?
Locals moaning on facebook that all the waste in the xmas collections is going in the same lorry , bless do they not understand the people on the sorting belts actually have xmas holidays ? so its quicker and more cost effective to just incinerate everything they would usually sort for a couple of weeks a year , i would imagine its all infected with glitter and sparkle anyway.
Then theres Vegangate and the great sausage roll scandal, great bit of advertising for Greggs , my favourite sausage rolls are Linda McCartneys , dont care that there vegetarian im not, just love the wretched things, I could happily live meat free but Vegan is one step to far with a dodgy digestive system and no turning into a wholefood holier than thou doesnt cure umpteen dodgy surgeries and scar tissue in weird places . There are some lovely classed as vegan foodstuffs out there that i happily eat , but theres also some really dodgy labelled vegan foodstuffs with lots of seeds and nuts that could kill me , plus whats with the miniscule labelling of the contents of foodstuffs these days? they highlight known allergens? but what about those of us with real obscure intolerances , look at those whove died from sesame seeds in stuff you would never expect . The youngsters who are Vegan seem to rely on heavily processed meat substitutes , where a good Vegan cookbook might be a better idea .
Mardy old bird rant over for today
