We have had frosted relations with our neighbour at times but today we saw a completely different side to him as he went out of his way to assist with our pond task. He did end up claiming the lining to the pond for use in his own garden for laying down a base for a wooded bark play area. My partner had agreed his taking of the lining without realising how useful it would’ve been for our own purposes of re-landscaping the area once occupied by the fast disappearing pond, however the pond is as full as we could have hoped for just for the price of asking for someone else’s rubbish.
Taking of rubbish, I shudder to think how much waste and cardboard will be generated this weekend when all the Easter eggs are removed from their boxes. I’d noticed that the local supermarket had got on sale Easter eggs that did not sit in a box at all, unfortunately they were not moving off the shelves in great quantities, unless they were and I was just not there to witness the restocking of shelves.
We have, for our part, purchased larger bars of chocolate for our girls mainly due to them being so much older now but also from a value for money viewpoint; the lack of packaging is also a big bonus.
Another bonus for me today is in believing that today is Saturday and not Friday, therefore psychologically I have gained a day, and today really is a good Friday.
