Much like the law enforcement agencies like to have a focus , you know 'focus on speeding' or 'focus on seat belts'.......this month at Chez Ric-Rac has been 'Focus on Toilet Paper' month.....
and what a month it has been.
There has been huge cross media attention .... i.e I have been trying to spread my message across, in front of and in direct competition with Ipods, television , Internet and general ignorance!
There have been promotions - me printing stickers with little rolls of toilet paper on them and conveniently sticking them in amongst the children's clean washing, in their lunchboxes and anywhere else I could manage it. (Actually that bit was lots of fun)
Awareness raising - me (again) spending a lot of time enquiring after the toilet paper situation, checking how people are enjoying 'Focus on Toilet Paper' month and just how committed everyone is.
because it is about bloody time someone in this house under the age of 40 learnt to change the toilet roll when it was empty ...and then...god forbid....put the empty roll in the bin.
(Maybe I should take to carrying my own personal supply on my person - that way no matter how teeny the sliver of paper left - I won't have to be the one to actually empty the roll - or maybe I'll just give up now and go completely bonkers.........either way ......)
