…Bought some fake snow spray today.
It smells disgusting.
I had wanted to use some of it in my room but this is impossible…

The memory of this just made me shiver. The smell was ghastly. There is absolutely no way such a product would be allowed to be sold today – at least, not to children.

I’d decided to go a bit over-the-top with Christmas decorations this year, and hence invested in a can of this foul stuff.

I tried it first on a couple of plants in the back garden. They were dead by teatime.

I didn’t use it again. I think I took it to school and just left it somewhere: a strategy I have repeated throughout my life whenever I need to dispose of unwanted objects that I can’t bring myself to throw away.
