life in the hood

On the way home from school today our streets were littered with cans and bottles from the nearby student orientation gig.  Turns out that there had been a stabbing, which explains the proliferation of cop cars and the helicopter circling overhead.  The boys are always into cleaning up our neighbourhood and so made the most of a discarded vodka cruiser box (we started with one).  A girl from up the road noticed that we'd run out of room in our box and so ran out to give us a plastic shopping bag.  Really we should keep some in the boys backpacks.  We picked up 30-40 cans and bottles on our short walk... pretty glad that it's not O week every week!


  1. Great job boys! I'm so proud of you both.

    I wish there were actual punishments for people who litter.

    Nana's little eco-warriors. Well done. It's such a shame litter spoils the look of our environment. More rubbish bins?
    Love you. XOXOXOXO

  3. Wow! 30-40 cans and bottles! That is shocking!!

    Now...I just HAVE to use that Michael Jackson thingy, because that is soooo cool!!


  4. oh no! i don't think it worked!

    PS love how the comments are in speech bubbles.

  5. Um I'm not sure what you mean... is it some sort of smiley thing? I never got them to work either. More cans and bottles today, another whole box and grocery bag!

  6. Just above where you post a comment, there is a cool Michael Jackson smiley thing that does the moon walk etc...soo cute.

    Will send you a screen shot to give you an idea of what we see (it doesn't do it justice, because mj isn't dancing)


so lovely to hear from you xx
