Pasta!

Mmmm I just love this stuff! It's one of my favourite foods. Fresh pasta is absolutely the most delicious, but we haven't got any of that here :( Just as well we had plenty of the dried variety on hand for todays' HSMS prompt!

Pasta : An Italian food made from dough. Find pasta in your space today
Yesterday's prompt was drive - here's a pic of us doing a spot of off-roading in our "gas-guzzler" last summer, we're so lucky to live on such a beautiful coastline.
I know a lot of people frown upon 4x4's now, but it's our one little treat in life and we do do our little bit for the environment, at least more than most people I talk to anyway! Anything that enters this house that can be recycled is recycled and we compost our kitchen scraps. We use energy efficient bulbs, and energy-saving appliances too where possible. Our thermostat is turned down. We buy most of our fresh produce directly from our local farm shop, rather than stuff that's been trekked across the country, or worse, jetted across the world, and we don't holiday abroad (alright, as much as I'd like to do so!). I'm always on the look out for more ways we can be kinder to our planet too - so any suggestions will be welcome! I've heard a recycled paper scrapbooking line has just been released at CHA, so will be looking forward to seeing what that's like!!
I don't know why I'm sitting here feeling that I have to justify the car I drive! I Came home from my 12 hour night shift this morning smuthering with a stinking cold and sore throat, and I can't get off to sleep as a result, so I think I'm feeling emotional!! I blame this wacky weather for my lurgy - two days of glorious sunshine and now it's torrential rain again today!! xxxx
