Pete, Nicola, Lola, 9, and Nell, 6, spent three happy months during summer of 2007 travelling around Britain. Now we’re home, but the travel bug is still there. Join us for the occasional sightseeing plus tips on how to shrink your carbon footprint. This post is from Nicola
Pete's book, There's a Hippo In My Cistern (Pete May, Collins, #7.99) is out on Monday.
It's funny and it's on the two for three table at some Waterstones bookshops so every finger in the house is crossed (and a few chicken claws too) that readers will like finding out about: "Pete's gradual move towards an eco-friendly existence in a laid back, witty and engaging way as he grapples with the good life from cojmpost loos and rearing chickens to wearing multiple jumpers and using Hippos - devices that pete found himself dunking into his cistern to save water when flushing...set against the back drop of Cool Britannia, Blair's Britain and the rise of the green movement..."
I just hope Pete's belief that humour will win more people over to the green cause is going to work as I'd like a lot more of us into energy efficiency than seem to be around at the moment.
Oh yes, and I'll be careful what I wish for in the future as it's very strange having a kiss and tell book written about yourself...
