Tomorrow is Buy Nothing Day.
For the last 2 years I’ve marked it on the calendar then found some reason excuse or other for pulling out the plastic. The name speaks for itself but if you’ve not heard of Buy Nothing Day click here for more information.
Buy Nothing Day is simply a challenge to us all to stop and think about what we buy, where it comes from and the environmental impact of the purchases we make. And for one day, 28th November, to hold a 24 hour moratorium on consumer spending.
Tomorrow I’m putting my money where my mouth is by keeping my pennies in my pocket. What better excuse for a morning at the allotment and an afternoon making christmas presents? Then come the evening…
… a date with The Magic Numbers at Gloucester Guildhall. Well, not a date with the Magic Numbers. A date with George to toe tap and sway our way through an evening with the musical maestros. If date seems like a strange choice of words for an evening spent with my lovely husband I make no apologies for it. We’ll be celebrating 15 years of togetherness. Cheaply of course, ‘mine’s a water thanks‘.
The Magic Numbers have penned new song with Malian superstars Amadou and Mariam called ‘All I Believe In’ which is featured on the movie soundtrack album to the much talked about “The Twilight saga : New Moon’
