    Oh yeah. I’ve spent the week cleaning the house and sorting stuff out in preparation for our move to Melbourne later in the year. Yesterday we gave several cubic metres of clothes and books to the Salvos, mostly clothes I’ve been hanging on to that I either don’t or can’t wear. It may take an intervention for me to let go of any more of my books – we’ll have to see.

    I read a newspaper article the other day which made out that ZOMG!! The summer holidays are an environmental disaster, because the volume of rubbish / recycling in the rubbish / recycling bins goes up considerably.

    I agree Christmas day, with all those blister packs and wrapping, is a horror. But the person who did the “study” must not have taken into account that the holidays are usually the time people have time to CLEAN. Der!
