I’m doing it….

With the strange unseasonably cool/cold/snowy weather they’re having

I think this might be happening all over the Northern Hemisphere

When I saw that meme last week I immediately thought of this photo

On one of our Alaskan cruises we were upgraded

– and had a balcony –

the weather had turned unseasonably cold but I was determined to use it!

(Just once)

Fun Friday – the day you forget the worries of the week.

Will be back on Monday – see you then!


We have one in our street….

But no one knows who it is!

There is a rotating system for bin collection

Solid green bin (household waste) every week

Yellow lidded (recycling) one week – Green lidded (garden waste) the following

Garden waste week!

Late Sunday afternoon you will see some neighbours glancing up and down the street

You can almost hear the voices in their heads – Yellow or Green – Which one is it?

Then all of a sudden one set of bins is on the nature strip – closely followed by more

All lined up like soldiers (or Daleks) in battle formation

Ready to be upended the next morning – then dumped unceremoniously on the ground

Most weeks the lid colours match- some weeks there is one that doesn’t
Oh dear the kids down the street have got it wrong again – pocket money will suffer

The Golfer deals with ours – “which bin” he constantly asks
“Which one did you put out last week “ is the answer.
Often followed by ”which one is half empty”

Then I’ll smile and suggest he checks the chart on the fridge
That way I know ours is correct 😊

There was fun and games not long ago.

Pick up after Christmas Person #1 got it wrong.
LOTS of wrong coloured bin lids lined the street – it was garden waste not recycling

There was a flurry of activity when neighbours who had put out bins with yellow lids (and happened to be home) saw the green waste truck going by, it was quite a sight seeing some of them struggling across the road with their green coloured ones, pulling them up on to the opposite nature strip in time for when the truck returned to deal with the other side of the street.

Yes we have a bin-influencer in our street – but we have no idea who he/she is

Influencer :~ Someone who affects or changes the way that others behave source
