We don’t buy any newspapers at home so one of the main disadvantages of not being at work is the fact that I don’t read the newspapers. I can get any of the national newspapers here but I never read them. Most of them are rather trashy anyway. I miss my local paper though! I live 20 miles from where I work so there’s a different local paper there than there is at home. Also there’s another local paper in my hometown which I no longer get to see.
However my mam has been picking up the local papers for me (she buys them for herself then passes them to me when she’s done). Here’s some tidbits I found interesting!
I’m into recycling! I try to recycle as much as I can. It drives me potty when I see my hubby throw recyclable stuff in the bin!
So apparently drinking one can of fizzy drink a day can cause heart problems. This is bad news for me as I drink at least one can a day! When I was working I would have a can with my sandwich at lunch and then another with dinner in the evening. I’ve cut down to one a day now though although occasionally will have two cans when I have a Chinese! So I may be stuffed! But I don’t drink alcohol and I don’t smoke so lemonade (and Chinese takeaway) are my vices!
From Chinese takeaway to fish and chips! We used to visit this chip shop all the time when I was younger. I used to go out for the day with my Dad and Taid and we would stop here on the way home as it was Taid’s favourite place to eat! Glad to see that they’re thriving!
I spotted this small bit which I thought was sad. I like Lee Mack and it’s sad that his brother passed away.
Win A Wedding
I saw this spread in the paper – it’s where we got married (and where we spent Valentine’s Day)! Shame this competition wasn’t on when we got married in 2012! Although I can’t complain, we did get a discount because we were both ex-students!
In the Saturday paper they always have adverts for holidays. We’re not going on holidays this year but we are going to Silverstone for the weekend – I’m sure I’ll discuss this in more detail in a few weeks! However I can still browse the holidays on offer. I quite fancied this one! I would like to go back to Tenerife. I think Little Miss would like it.
I don’t normally ask questions at the end of my blog entries (because I don’t have an audience) but here’s a try! What interesting stuff have you seen in the paper recently?
