Re: Got my mind on my sausage, and my sausage on my mind

I've going sausage crazy after my gran gave me her electric sausage maker. I'm sure it's only a cheap one, makes a racket but does the job. I've even been brave and made some salami and chorizo.

Re: Broad beans

Due to the lack of rain broad beans are about the best thing in our garden, been harvesting for about a week now still quite small but I can't stop popping them open. I don't know how people get things to the kitchen most things are munched on the way round in our garden, must try harder!!

I'm with you :andy: I don't suffer from full on SAD but get down in the winter stuck in all day, however this year I have not suffered so bad as I 've been out more preparing the ground planting bulbs etc. I have also forced myself to get out there at every chance, it has certainly helped.

The worst one was when I did a sponsored walk for the 'free tibet campaign' which was in the paper and nobody got in touch, I felt like it was a waste of time and very foolish.

I'm older'ish now and don't let it bother me :lol:
