I was going to do a post called Festering Friday or something along those lines. A new feature in the world of The 1970's Diet. Not exactly a cheery one, so don't think I'll be doing a 'linky' on it anytime soon. My Festering Friday feature was going to include things that have mildly irritated me during the week. What do you think? Worth a regular feature? For starters I saw an old man (well into his seventies) open his car door at the garage and empty the entire contents onto the forecourt. I'm pretty sure he would probably have a moan about the state of the country and, quite frankly, he should have known better. There were many a litter advert in the 1970's as it was such a huge problem. Check out this advert from youtube which was from the 'litter defence league.'
Also worthy of a mention for the post (that wasn't) was the walk to school day. The school is going to be doubling in size - so naturally the council couldn't care less about the parking situation - nor the fact the pupils are coming from all over the borough. The school then came up with the idea of promoting walking to school. Good thinking Batman. For parents that ordinarily drive, they were encouraged to drive to a location, whereby the school had arranged for the children to be walked to school. As an even bigger incentive, any child that had walked to school, would receive a free breakfast. Sounds fabulous doesn't it? What a great idea. The designated area to drive to (and I kid you not on this) was 150 metres from the school's side gate! Are you frigging kidding me?! Has the world gone totally insane. It was hailed as a resounding success - talk of it being carried out on a termly basis - seriously you would think the children had walked 2 miles or something. The parents were merely able to park there car a bit further down the road. In my day it took me a good 30 minutes to walk to my 'local' primary school.
