Hurrah!  Bushman's found us ((hugs)) but you're looking in the wrong place if you're looking for normality

Oh Bushman ((hugs))  we've moved to the September thread - hope you find us - probably won't find any normality there tho'

Not really BBQ - but molasses and brown sugar (I use muscovado), mustard, cloves and salt pork or bacon with beans and onions, cooked in the slow cooker all day - perfect to come in to after a late autumn day in the garden.  I sometimes tip a can of chopped tomatoes in as well, and a slosh of Worcestershire sauce.  A jacket potato or two cooked in the bonfire and you have bliss on a plate.

You probably had 'own brand' beans back in the uni days Ladybird - they had less sugar - think they had fewer beans too

Dd, if you're really short of things to do, you could put the kettle on ............. I'm sure several of us could do with another mug of something ............ failing that you could put your feet up

 I remembered there was a load of washing in the machine waiting to be hung out, so I'm up now and the washing is on the line.  The goldfinches are singing beautifully today and the sun is beginning to burn off the slight hazy cloud.

Think I'd better pop up to the farm shop today and get some food ... I could also pop into the GC and see what they're tempting me with ........ they're having a huge building project and the place is in semi-chaos, so there might be some good plants in the 'nearly dead' section 

I need some lawn seed too ...
