Earlier in the week I found a letter on Elly’s Doorstep… well I suppose it was half way through the letter box.
I am well used to it. It comes in many guises…
You have won… open the envelope to discover it is a fib, and it is a request to spend money on some rubbish.
The Occupier… usually a note telling that the power or water will be off for a few hours on a certain day for what ever reason.
The Householder…. Real junk mail selling exactly what you don’t want.
Letter addressed to my late husband….. Usually a platinum or gold credit card offer from some bank or other. I once returned one of these saying he would only accept if it was valid for the next world!
I stole the envelope from Elly’s junk mail since it was a new one on me:
Tonight I was in the hall and thought I saw something on the doorstep. I opened the door to find this:
At first glance I thought someone had left me a present of a puppy or kitten. Then I took a closer look.
It was a food caddy from our Local Council so that we can recycle food waste. The leaflet informs me that I may put any raw or cooked food in the caddy.
- Meat & fish – raw or cooked including bones.
- All dairy products – such as eggs and cheese.
- Raw & cooked vegetables and fruit.
- Bread cakes and pastries.
- Rice, pasta and beans.
- Uneaten food from your plates and dishes.
- Tea and coffee grounds
Included are two rolls of corn starch bags and a number to order more!
Do people not eat any more?
