Thought for the Day: 'Fessing Up'
Yes, I bowed to pester power and the lure of the Happy Meal and went to McDonalds at the weekend. As Louis sighed with contentment over his Chicken Nuggets, Fries, McFlurry and especially the toy, I laboured through my 'sandwich' and ruled myself out as the star of the sequel to Fast Food Nation. Only one lot of tasteless burgers wedged between pappy baps was enough to convince me that this was way off the beautiful home cooked meals that I'm normally used to. Just to reinforce the fact that I needn't eat anything so mass produced again I reckon someone on high served me a tiny reminder and inflicted severe abdominal pain which hasn't yet abated.
And whilst I'm here I might as well 'fess up my other sins against green, wholesome living on top of booking flights to Scotland that I've already mentioned. I recently visited an snowdome, thereby giving my tacit approval to an attraction that has a huge environmental impact. Also I'm adding onward flights to our impending transatlantic family trip rather than facing the prospect of a sixteen hour journey each way in our friend's truck to our final holiday destination. I think I hear a voice booming down from above. 'Must do better, Lovelygrey!'
