Here's an article from the Independent about 8 things Britons don't do any more.
I do some and have pretty good excuses for not doing others.
1. Peeling- Orange sales are down because people don't like peeling them.
During the winter I eat lots of oranges but I don't peel them. I cut them into quarters and add a light sprinkle of salt, a taste I picked up from my Dad. He says it's an Italian thing , but I don't know any other Italians who do it although they are very partial to salt, citrus , and bitter tastes, which I love too. Nothing like a salad of dark greens, lemon dressing , salt and pepper.
I can have salt thanks to my low blood pressure.
People don't relax and go out for lunch, instead they grab a quick bite at their desk and carry on working.
I have a quick lunch at my desk so I can use my break time to go for a walk. At least that's a healthy reason.
3. Car Washing . Most people use the drive through car wash (what a waste of water and energy) instead of doing it themselves.
I don't have a car . I do remember my Dad enjoying washing his car by hand and polishing it.
4. Writing. Everybody uses Email and IM, rarely writing a snail mail letter.
I don't write letters by hand as my writing is so horrible. I will type a letter in a fancy font and put it in a card.
5. Shaving .
I think modern shavers are better and safer soI don't think giving up the old fashion shave is a great loss.
Is it true people read less ? I don't know because my family and friends are all big readers.
Nobody has time to go for a leisurely walk.
I walk everyday(no car remember) , strolling ? well depends how much time I have
8. Tea Making
Britons don't have time to make tea ? What is the world coming to ?
I love tea and take the time everyday to make it in a proper tea pot . I like to try different kinds of flavoured black teas and green teas. No bag in a cup for me.
Other than that I think it's redundant for me to mention my MS.
Right now I'm stuffing my face with candy from Finland. One of the side benefits of my post card hobby.
