Well the neighbours Chicken laid the same egg three times. You try living on Quarr hill.

Hope you ‘picked it up, before it pollutes the soil with phosphates, or the plastic bag is blown to the great barrier reef to choke a Tuna.

‘Pig Tales’, will be on your case if not.

Have a crisis here in Binstead.
A carrier bag has blown into my front garden. Unsure whether to risk life and limb by retrieving it now, before it destroys the planet, or leave it, and risk the wrath of that pig tailed child, as it blows into the Artic straight into the gills of a majestic Whale.

When I was younger we just used to that it was a bit windy outside. It was never given a name. It’s certainly not the armageddon that the media kept threatening us with!

Must be annoying for anyone that had travel plans today and probably tomorrow, especially if trying to get to an airport 🙁
