Hard Rubbish score!
There's been a bit of controversy about people taking things from Hard Rubbish Collections recently. See this article here about an incident that occurred in our very own shire. I don't understand this at all (and it seems many other people who read that story agree with me there!) If something is out for Hard Rubbish Collection it means the owner no longer needs it. Why is it so wrong for someone else to take it and recycle it rather than sending it to the tip to add to landfill?
Anyway, this incident hasn't deterred me for keeping an eye on the Hard Rubbish around here lately. This Cubby House is what I found the other day! Ok, so it's not in the best condition. It has a few cracks and it was missing the screws that hold it together. All easily fixed though. My ingenious husband (I was forced to write that) managed to put it all together with a few drill holes and some cable ties. And the kids love it! So much so that they wanted to eat their dinner in it tonight. Cheap entertainment really. And I love that we didn't fork out a heap of money on something new that they will probably decide they're not interested in in a couple of weeks.
