Happy pancake day!


With all the doom and gloom of the credit crunch, I hope you can, like me, take some time out for a treat and have some pancakes using freerange organic eggs and organic milk. Even found some organic maple syrup but I couldn't resist some regular chocolate ice cream. Well nobodys perfect. ;-)

Help Britain go green for Valentine's Day




Support the Energy Savings Trust and help Britain go green for Valentine's Day.

They have launched a Britain Unplugged community site and a few ideas for going green on the day of love are:



  • Buy some eco-friendly bath products and share a bath or shower. If all the couples in the UK shared their showers on Valentine’s Day we could save a collective 220 million litres of water

  • If you are buying some romantic chocolates this February 14, make sure they are produced locally and recycle the packaging

Please visit their "Turn me on, turn it off" community site for more details.
