Oh, you can't imagine the anger and frustration this morning. The other day, my soggy Western Leader arrived. I dutifully removed the free rubber band and unwrapped my paper. I left it to dry on the bench.
This morning, it was a bit crunchy, but dry. I chucked the homes section into the recycling bin. We don't need it to start fires anymore.
I then, eagerly began my assault on the events of the past week+. The silly comments of many of my neighbours. The news stories that don't give many facts, but lots of opinions.
Then I came to the last page.
I went back through. Searching.
I then went from back to front. Searching.
Where was it? Where was my sudoku? Where was my crossword puzzle? Was it in the Home section? No.
Curse you Western Leader!! You have let me down for the last time.
(These are the kinds of rubbish complaints I love about Neighbourly. I assume that the WL was a couple of pages of news and comments short of needing another sheet and had to cut the games section. Oh well.)

Mattresses usually last 8-10 years before they need to be replaced. Mattresses are one of the most difficult consumer products to get rid of responsibly. Maybe this is one of the main reasons that they end up on the Curb. But have you ever thought what happens to the old mattress when you leave it on the curb? The size and construction of the mattress create a major problem for the authorities.
