Day 3: Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to school we go!


YES! YES! YES!

The Almost Average Household has finally remembered to recycle its cartons!

Phew!

That was lucky! The boys took them to school this morning to add to our school collection for Recycle Week, swinging them around in a wild fashion, whilst trying to hold up their trousers.

So on Day 3 of the pledge that I made at the Recycle Now site, we've finally done it. I just can't believe it took me three days to remember, especially as it's me who suggested the school collection in the first place as part of my wider community pledge.

But you know what this really means?

Not only have I contributed to local community spirit and the environment, I've also made sure that we keep Suffolk lovely and peaceful, in the manner to which it's now become accustomed

...because...

Thanks to recycling my own cartons today, it means I won't be forced to fulfil my forfeit which was to sing in public.

so as well as my neighbours in Moreton Hall, the folk at BBC Radio Suffolk and all their listeners will be totally safe from my wobbly warbling, when I drop in next week for my catch up.

I hope everyone else is doing well with their own pledges. I can't wait to find out how you're all getting on.

In the meantime.....

"Hi ho, hi ho, It's off to work I go......."

As you can see, I'm more than happy to sing on my own.

Have you thought of making belts for your boys out of tetrapaks? Then they might not need to be constantly holding up their trousers. Think of the fun they could have with 2 free hands!!

Did you overdo the 'buy it a bit bigger so they'll get plenty of wear out of it' lark, or do you just need to feed them more? ;)

Hee hee, I hope to be making purses at the weekend, belts might be a good idea as well. :-D

I think yesterday was most definitely a case of the wrong trousers. Yesterday evening little T was found wearing his brother's :-d

Ah! It's not easy keeping track of what little ones are wearing. My daughter went to school without a skirt once and I didn't notice! She had a long jumper on and tights and it was only after PE that it became a problem because they looked everywhere for her skirt and couldn't find it. I think I popped in her room at lunch time and saw her skirt on her bed and took it up to the school. This was the Infant school, probably Reception class.

Hi Karin...oh so true...what a fab story about your little girl. If my boys wore shorts I KNOW that would happen to me :-D
