Cinderella, you SHALL go to the craggers meeting…

Unfortunately I missed my dressmaking class last night, because I slept sooooooo badly on Monday that the thought of pushing myself to make my deadline as well as going into Reading to get a pattern and fabric (without which I’d have been sitting twiddling my thumbs at the class) and then going out and having to operate machinery with pointy bits just felt like too much. As it was, I was asleep by 9 anyway, so probably just as well!!

I’m regretting it now, though, as I’ve just found out that next week is half term, and having carefully arranged my holiday so as to be the week after the last class, I now discover I’ll be missing the last one too. Bugger. V disappointed.

Still, every cloud, eh? It does mean that next week I get a triple whammy of knitting group, asking awkward questions about consumer goods at the CRAG meeting and going to see ‘Crude Awakenings’ in Bracknell. In short, a week of, ‘aaargh, we’re all dooooomed – let’s knit!’

An excellent philosphy, I feel.

Ooh, and the organiser of the knitting group is going to start selling yarn at the market in town in March. Finally, proper wool without having to get on a train! I feel my budget taking a hit….

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
