I’ve started a 30-day litter picking challenge where I pick up one piece of litter every day. Only it’s quite addictive and hard to stick with just one piece. Once you start looking out for litter you see it everywhere and it becomes difficult to ignore. I’m currently on day 3. Here’s how it’s going so far:
Day 1: 3 pieces of litter
Day 2: 7 pieces of litter
Day 3: 5 pieces of litter
Please join me! There are no rules other than it has to be a minimum of one piece of litter and you can’t count your own litter which you should definitely pick up anyway.
Here’s Victoria looking very cute.
She’s got a game she likes to play with us on the stairs where we poke our hands through the bars and she swipes at us. It’s a dangerous game because she doesn’t sheath her claws but this just makes it all the more exciting!
Elizabeth’s alarm goes off at 6:30am each morning and when Victoria hears it she leaps off our bed where she sleeps and runs into Elizabeth’s room, then sits beside her bed waiting for a pat. She likes Elizabeth pats best of all.
This morning we had brunch at Foodstory with friends. It was wonderful! On Sundays, Foodstory do pancakes all day long and they’re special pancakes served with vegan yoghurt, granola, berry compote, and chocolate sauce. I was pretty stuffed after all of this. It’s such a tough and deprived life being a vegan.
Some great news this week: the mayor of New York, Eric Adams, has brought in vegan school dinners every Friday to New York’s schools. Adams is vegan himself, having gone vegan in 2016 after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He reversed his diabetes on a vegan diet. Here’s an interview with him about it:
We need more politicians like this please!
