Not iced coffee this time

Last night, Storm Diana blew my prized rosemary out of its pot, so the beleaguered plant is now getting hot in the kitchen. It is one of those plants which seems to suffer indoors (well, so do I, so I don’t blame it), which means the first job this weekend will probably be to dig a hole outside and give the rosemary the comfort it needs.

In the meantime, as I’ve got £10 in my purse at the end of the month, I decided to buy breakfast and a coffee en route to work. Conveniently, my bus stops outside the entrance to the classy Victoria Gate shopping mall in Leeds and I’m now sitting with a banana and coffee which cost me a grand total of 50p. For some reason, I wasn’t charged for the coffee – maybe it is because I let the gentleman in front change his order at the last minute or because I resisted the cookies and bacon sandwiches. I just hope the banana was Fairtrade.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    I am loving reading your posts! I hope you enjoyed your well deserved coffee and that the rosemary survives until you can plant it out. We had quite a storm here last noght and the mobile home parked on the yard of a neighbouring farm lost its roof. Luckily it is not lived in at the moment but it must have been a strong gust. I am tucked away at the bottom of the valley whilst they are at the top so I get shelter but later I will go and check that everything is OK in the garden.

I love to read about your own experiences and any other feedback you have, so look forward to your comments below.
