The Big Tidy Up
Yesterday Tony and I took part in the Keep Britain Tidy Big Tidy Up. We wandered around the estate armed with a supply of plastic bags and a couple of 'litter pickers' and we collected three bin liners full of litter. Now this might horrify you into thinking it looks like 'slum dog Millionaire' territory here in Nunthorpe but you couldn't be more wrong. Yes there was litter about but we collected most of the litter from hedges. The bone idle had simply pushed the empty cans and other bits of rubbish deep into the hedgerows. It wasn't always immediately apparent but Tony is ex army and doesn't do things by half. If we say we are cleaning up then by heck do we clean up. I am sure that locals may have thought I was doing community redress as I wore a bright green plastic tabard...... Tony refused to wear one.... can't for the life of me think why... :-) I bet they thought he was supervising some ne-er do well. Anyway, in my usual long winded way I am getting around to showing you what I did with the plastic tabard when we got home.... I spun it into plarn on my drop spindle and have added the plarn to my stash to be used in a project when I get around to it.
