Haf! (wel, bron...)

We've been having lovely summer days here the last few days -- but at night it drops down below freezing, and this morning I noticed that the frog spawn looked frozen -- does this mean they are dead?

Dug over this bed in the garden again and will be starting to plant things in it shortly -- I think it needs still MORE sand!

For supper tonight I made Stuffed Lambs Hearts -- I must admit, I got a bit nervous at the last minute as I was talking to Faith on the phone and she said that she needed to get off the phone as she couldn't bear to talk to me whilst I was eating a lamb's heart -- but they are absolutely yummy -- a bit like liver!

Today I think is the first time I have succeeded in drying a whole load of laundry outdoors since November...

And in other news, I took out the trash today. Unfortunately, I didn't set out to see how long I could go without taking it out, so I don't know precisely when I last did, but I would guess that there is about 7 weeks worth of rubbish in this bag...

We used to have a biology master who used to take hoe the remains of the mornings disection for his lunch. The things we used to do to the pigs hearts and lambs livers!

Impressive performance on the rubbish front. I had a two-month spell on my own here before Christmas and put out a single black back once.

The difference for us is clear - supermarket packaging. I feel a post coming on.

Malc -- yes, supermarket packaging (or the lack thereof) makes the hugest difference! From time to time I find myself suddenly having a craving for processed foods but all I have to do is look at the packaging and think about all the energy that went into producing stuff that is about to end up in my trash and presto, craving gone... Do they have supermarkets up in your part of the world?

Now that's impressive! Makes my one bag a week look excessive :).
