I was chatting to a batty friend over the weekend who informed me that her office Christmas do was coming up and that she had ‘absolutely nothing to wearsweetie!’
Now her definition nothing to wear translates into the reality of having a wardrobe bulging with slinky numbers, but they’ve seen the light of day twice in the last year and if she wore them again her social standing would clearly suffer irrepairable damage.

I thought I’d use today’s post to formally announce the release of The Book of Rubbish Ideas. It will start hitting the shelves today and you should start to hear more about it in the press. You can also now purchase it online here.
Thank you to everybody for showing so much support, both on and off the blog, and as a small way of showing our appreciation I have posted another set of sample pages for you to look at. I’ve selected the brilliant chapter on things to do in the Study to reduce electric, paper and other household rubbish.
In the meantime Tracey will continue to make this blog as interesting, informative and inspiration as possible. There’s still a lot more to come so bookmark the RSS feed, pop back daily and please share your comments and ideas with us.
Tracey is understandably still not quite up to resuming her wonderful work here just yet so to I thought I’d leave you with another set of sample pages from the book (which is now less than a month away from being published!)
