I have noticed on my daily walk the gradual increase in litter. There is always a slight increase during the wildfowling season, but there seems to have been an increase in general over the past few months.
It drives my to distraction.
What annoys me even more is the fact that I go out everyday and as soon as I start to see the odd bit of litter I remember that I have forgotten the bin bag and tough gardening gloves that I intend to carry everyday to collect the litter.
It’s an age thing. Sadly.
Today went a little differently.
I still got to the cycle path before I remembered I’d forgotten. Again. But this time, I found a carrier bag near my turning point, so I was able to use that to collect litter on my return trip.
I did get a few odd looks, but it’s okay, no one will recognise me, I was wearing sunglasses…
I even separated out the recyclable bits. I feel virtuous today.
I deserve a treat. More cake!! Or chocolate…
