It’s Friday, which is a good thing. I am so tired and am on the countdown to a short week next week. It’s my nephew’s birthday tomorrow and I have got him Play doh operation. You get to make the internal organs yourself. What more could a three year old want? I went to a shopping centre reasonably near work to get it and it was like walking into the 1960s. I have not been to such a horrible shopping centre… *thinks*… ever. Still it got the job done.

Anyway, should you wish to know your carbon footprint and how many planets it would take to sustain us if everyone lived the same way as you, then look here. I came out as a 6 and apparently the average for the UK is something like 5.3. There is no way that my carbon footprint is more than the average. I’m not trying to be virtuous, I am just sure that there are a lot of people who are worse than me. So either it is people who are particularly eco-friendly out there or a lot of liars!

This is an interesting website, it has some interesting articles on it, but also some good photos. Worth a look.

Have a good weekend.

LKSN - I hope you wouldn't steal it from a three year old. Add it to your Amazon wishlist!

My footprint is 3.9. I think that's just because I'm vegetarian maybe. And I don't fly anywhere. :)

Bye for now, Pete the Gnome with the Pointy Hat.

Good links. Um. That is the weirdest game ever...but I'm sure very educational.

lemonpillows - you are obviosuly much more virtuous than me. I guess I do make a few flights for work each year which must bump my score up. Perhaps I should try harder!

TF - or Pete... I thought you'd like the photos.

titration - it's educational yet gory - what more could a child of three want!
