"Are you interested in buying fish?" asked the man at the door.
"Well I'm a bit busy at the moment. Just finishing off my work!" I replied.
Work(?)...gerroff...I was just desparate to put the Eglu video on my blog. I looked at my watch. Time was tight and I'd soon have to pick up the kids from school.
Then came my inner nag. The one that said I should eat more fish along with the rest of the family. I paused. Do I? Don't I? Shall I? Shan't I?
"What's the packaging like?"
"It comes in recyclable cardboard box, which we can take off your hands - would you like me to show you?"
Now if a man wants to show me recyclable packaging, well you know I'm all ears.
And it was true. We went to the van to show me his frozen loins - cod loins of course - all packaged in a single recyclable polythene bag and safely stacked in a reusable or reyclable box.
So I paid my dues, took the fish and give him the box back. Ah...a simple solution for my bin and one less reason to go to the supermarket.
Fish pie anyone?
