60 Days After: Shopping Ban Review

Wow, has it been 60 days already since I announced by shopping-ban? I should have called it “Shopping-and-Blogging-Ban”, but the last part of that came about rather involuntarily. If you hung around until now, reward yourself with a nice orange juice (you deserve it!), and get ready for my Shopping Ban Review: Continue reading

2015 Wrap Up! 2016, Here We Come!

It’s the end of the year: time to get all sentimental about what I’ve achieved and what I haven’t in one year. Then moving on to the feeling that there is so much I had hoped or even planned to do, and the realisation that no human will ever do all those glorious things we all dream about.

Plastic Free July: Belated Unboxing of the Dilemma Box

It’s August now, and the Scottish weather has finally granted us a hint of sunshine. Time to have a belated look at the plastic I’ve shamefully bought while claiming to be ‘plastic free’.
