Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Christmas casualty from 2016

I don’t know what’s changed – possibly the refuse collection cycle or recycling rules – but a few years ago I used to be able to find what I referred to as ‘Christmas casualties’ around Christmas Day. Basically last year’s ‘must have’ toy thrown out by the kids to make way for this year’s addition to the collection.

Now? I still walk the same streets, but the ‘casualties’ seem to be rare.

I spotted this just sitting abandoned in an empty (Shettleston) street, and at first thought it was new. But when I got closer it looked more like a once well-cared for favourite, but now dumped – although it is clean, the stickers are worn, and the seat has a hole burnt in it.

It’s all I’ve seen so far.
