Just Rubbish?

Another day with lots of pictures and not many words – here goes!  Starting with pictures this morning of the freshly cleaned verges – it was a joy to walk along there without Pup darting off to collect junk!

Round the corner and down the lane Pup found some newly dumped heaps to explore … but everytime I tried to photograph him he ran back to me.  Then he saw a person and a Pup walking on the other bank of the dyke – he was so excited he jumped across to greet the pup who promptly disappeared.  He tried several times to get the pup called Shadow to play but Shadow is a shy pup who kept hiding  from Pup … we have never been down there on a morning in strong sunlight but his excitement at meeting this new pal was very funny.

After a trip to Forfar to see my JobCentre Adviser and return the Wombling tools

and admire this greedy crow …

I came back to sort the rubbish.

Unsorted – three bags plus a propshaft?

Recycling … and a hub cap.

General rubbish in the white bags, miscellany on the ground in front, including a spray can and some electrical circuit thing

Broken glass in my ingenious milk carton glass collectior

Plastics (left) general (middle) aluminium (right; glass and propshaft out of shot.

Tomorrow I will take the recyclables to the tip (plastic bottled and aluminium cans.  The general rubbish will I think go in my bin and the whole glass bottles go in my recyling box.  The prop shaft will be a separate journey on its own.

So no one else had enough pride in our town  to come along and help, never mind I am proud of what I achieved in just a few hours … wonder how long before folk make it into  a tip again?

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
