Overall, our Christmas has not been terribly different from other years. While we didn’t get to visit Granny and Granddad, we still went for a post lunch walk. The biggest difference, all told, was the temperature. It was bitterly cold but at least the sun was shining.
Our aim had been to find Hetchell Woods and Pompocalii, situated near the village of Thorner, outside Leeds. However, they seem to be elusive, like many Yorkshire Wildlife Trust reserves appear to be. So, we simply enjoyed a pleasant walk along a bridleway and were enchanted by a friendly robin.
Back home, I was greeted by a message from a second person offering kitchen scraps through ShareWaste.com. I’d only recently realised that on the site there is a rough impact calculator, which basically works out how much carbon dioxide composting food waste donations saves from entering the atmosphere. So, let’s see how much this lady and I can save between us.
