Nicola & Pete plus daughters Lola, now 9 and Nell, now 7, spent last year exploring Britain in a carbon-light manner. Our spring 2008 challenge is to give up waste from 24 March to 24 April. Most posts are by Nicola (as it was her silly idea). This is how it’s going:
Pete (snapped on a snowy Easter walkabout) is not keen on the beardy look and so today purchased more razors. What can be done with the blunt ones?
Suggestion from artistic neighbours, Lucy and Jack, is to place them into a cork and then use them to sharpen crayons and pencils. It's a good idea but first we'd have to lose the 10 million sharpeners that Nell's collected.
Verdict: it feels as if we need a new life guide book. Where should old razors go? It's not something I've ever thought about before. Perhaps it's time for a return to the barbour shop. Then again there's the fear that Sweeney Todd might still be lurking near the knives.
