Change the world

My car is in the garage and has been since Friday. You have no idea how many favours I have had to call in to cope with 2 kids who have schools in opposite directions, neither of which are walkable.

Sometimes village life isn't all roses round the door.

Still, looking on the bright side, my personal carbon footprint is looking so much better.

I've been reading this book - it's all about small personal steps we could take to change our world. And when I read Amy's post, I cheered. As they say at Tesco, every little helps.

Sorry, no photos, blogger really hates me. Perhaps it is because I'm a Slytherin...

going without a car is SO hard! i wish our society wasn't set up so that we NEEDED them.

(do you speak parseltongue?)

Amy said...

Yeah - There is a good school 15-20 miles south in SW Austin and I am just trying not to let myself consider it for Bea's future. The thought of that commute to and from twice a day??? Carbon, carbon. Still, I hope you car is out soon - that can be a drag.

We are really lucky in that it is easier for us to walk than drive to school and kindergarten because they are so close to us. Out the back gate, over the oval and hey presto. And, I see you won a yard of fabric! Good for you!

Sorry to hear about your car. When the sun shines it's not so bad but on a rainy day with kids needing to be here, there and everywhere it's no picnic! Think I must be a slytherin too - blogger is not letting me play today either. Thanks for the welcome
