Sunday 26th May 2019

The puppy isn't eager to go for her walk yet, so I'm gonna take me supplements first, then try and convince her to go afterwards.

Supplements taken.  They were all a blinkin' nightmare to take this morning... not a good start to the day.

Gonna take the puppy out for our daily stroll now... assuming I can wake her up of course!  👌

We're back.  Just the standard length today.  She was a right royal PITA 'cos she wanted to make friends with a ginger cat so put the brakes on each time she saw it sitting on our neighbour's upturned recycling box.

The neighbour came home just as we were doing the last bit and Mitzi's little tail was wagging like mad, bless 'er.

That's the rubbish and recycling out for another week.  The rubbish bag was barely ⅓ full and the recycling is about ½ full.  The magasines from upstairs have been collected up and binned, as has the pup's poo and there's another tree that needs cutting down out the back lol

Need to email the council to see if magasines can be recycled instead of binned too.  If they can then there will be magasines in the recycling every week too!   Since we've been having home-cooked meals, our recycling has gone up, our rubbish down and our health is improving loads too, as well as being a lot cheaper!

Magasines can be recycled and they are most of the rubbish from the bedroom, so starting next week I'll bring 'em downstairs with me on a Sunday morning to go into the recycling box.  This is the full list for future reference:

​Items We Can Recycle in your Green Box

  • Newspaper & magazines
  • Phone directories, including Yellow Pages
  • Catalogues and paperback books
  • Junk mail, letters and cards
  • Thin card egg boxes
  • Envelopes
  • Cereal & thin​ card food packaging
  • Shredded paper (place in a clear carrier bag in your recycle box)
  • Clean food cans
  • Drink cans
  • Clean glass jars and bottles (any colour)
  • Plastic bottles (please squash)
  • Milk & juice bottles (please rinse & squash)
  • Cleaning bleach & detergent bottles (leave lids on)
  • Toiletry bottles
  • Household dry cell batteries
  • Cartons such as Tetra Pak e.g. milk, juice, soup (please rinse and squash).
  • Aerosols. Please remove lids and MUST be empty
  • Mixed plastic containers such as meat trays, fruit punnets, yoghurt pots, butter and ice cream tubs, sweet tubs
  • Textiles such as old clothes, paired shoes, sheets & towels placed in a see through bag on top of your recycling box. Please continue to take reusable items to local charity shops.
  • Aluminium food trays e.g. takeaway containers, pie cases, pet food trays, foil lids, kitchen foil (please rinse to remove food).Scrunch foil lids, confectionery and kitchen foil together to make a larger ball.​
So there will be even less rubbish and even more recycling than there already is from our likkle house!

Steve's also promised that we'll do a bit more of a clear out of trees in the back yard on Wednesday.  I'm secretly hoping that we'll get it all sorted and put into black bin bags so that we can just haul one bag a week into our rubbish.  It only needs to be a big session, once, to get it all sorted then we can just clear up the pup's poo each week and put just the one bag in with the rubbish before we take the rubbish bag out on a Sunday.

That's the puppy gone again and I'm already missing her!  😟

Cheesy chips and beans for lunch today and they weren't peppered so my arse is going to be rancid at the in-laws tomorrow!  😈

Going to have a bath and get changed ready for tomorrow now.  See you when I'm out and dressed!

The puppy's home!!!

She got back just as I was getting undressed to get in the bath, but she's home now and the house feels full of love again!  She's the smallest and youngest member of the household but she's got such a huuuuge personality!

WTG pup!

That's my three cardigans in for a wash.  Apparently it's gonna be mid-teens over here tomorrow so may not need it after all, but it's better to be prepared I reckon!

I'm totally wiped out, so I'm having a really early night.

Nite nite orl!  See you at some point tomorrow!
