Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink

My girls have been nominated by their friends to do the Ice Bucket Challenge which is doing the rounds on social media.  One of them then nominated me, but I am not going to do it!

I was nominated on FB, so I posted a message on FB to explain why I wasn't going to get wet.

Basically, I don't follow trends, and I don't want to be pushed into doing something which is just a stunt, when all is said and done.  If other people want to do it, like the girls did this morning, I'm fine with that.....I just prefer not to do it myself.  I also like to choose where I donate what spare cash I can manage to donate. I've thought a lot about this, and have donated to the Water Aid charity in respect of all the people in the world who cannot afford to waste water - because it is very expensive, because it is scarce, because what there is available is dirty and contaminated.

My husband was also nominated at work but refused to do it for very similar reasons. I bought the Daily Record and got my Aldi voucher - thanks again. In the paper was an article about how Aberdeen University are having accommodation problems and are having to put students up in local hotels. If you google 'Accommodation shortage forces Aberdeen University to put new students up in hotels..' you should be able to read it. Thought it might of be of interest, although I'm really pleased that you're sorted out with Halls now.
