I am buying one of these here padlocks to put on my fridge/freezer!!! Hollow legs call for this as the kids keep opening the doors and having a look see, wasting energy. I keep telling them, "You are letting all of the balloons out the door and window of the house, up into the sky". There is an ad on TV at the moment, it is about energy wasting and it depicts helium filled ballons ecscaping out the door and windows of the house. They are beginning to GET it.
In other news, it was 24 degrees celcius here in Melb at middnight last night, HOT you may say, yes it was.
I have one green patch of grass under my washing line, due to me using the washing water on it. It stops my clothes dropping into dirt and then needing another go in the washing machine. Wondering if they will bring back the old 80's ad's on TV, "Don't be a Wally with water!" I am not sure it was a successful campaign, but everyone got the phrase stuck inn their mind and if you saw a person watering their garden, or washing their path down with our liquid Gold, you would yell out the window, "Hey, Don't be a Wally with water!
We all received a leaflet in the mail with a magnet on the back so we can put it on our fridges to let us know about our water restrictions. Funny thing is, alot of people now have the trendy Stainless Steele Fridges that are NOT MAGNETIC!! I reckon it was a waste of many thousands of dollars. They, the government, should have sent one of these little babies pictured above. A water proof radio to hang in the shower. Set the alarm for 3 minutes, or listen to one song as you wash and out you get. Providijng the song is not the extended version of Bat Out Of Hell which goes forever, LOL.
Anyhoo, am about to go onto the neopet site with my boy Nicholas and have us a fun time :)
