I've got so many right side wellie boots and gloves now, why cant we go in and buy 1 glove or 1 wellie - after all, usually only one or the other wears out and you have to throw both away. I always think what a shame – we have to throw both away. Some time ago I decided to keep the good ones and see if over time it would work out equal and I could make another pair but now I have a heap of right wellies and gloves.
Years ago when a sock wore out you would darn it but can anyone darn these days ?? Gloves the same – darn it ! Wellie repairs are more difficult but plastic bags on feet has worked for me !!
The throw away society has put an end to all that, but perhaps in the present economic climate we could revive some of the old practices like darning, gardening, cooking, dare I say knitting!
One thing though that is constant and unchanging, whatever the economic climate may be - Loch Ness was beautiful yesterday, is today and will be tomorrow. Now, if I find left wellies and gloves littering Loch Ness in the coming months I will know you have ready the Blog! but we all know litter is very BAD but a thought just struck me, we should lobby the council to provide receptacles around the Loch specially for left and right items, then we could all put the good half of our ruined pairs of things into them for the common good!!
Daydream over, funny how your mind wanders, now – back to work… where is Loch Ness?
