After 2 consecutive weekends with parties for 8 friends, we feel that this coming weekend is going to be just for us. I'm going to get into smoking some cheese, we now have all we need to start re-making sausages.
Hopefully, the weather looks like it will hold out, finger crossed, as I am trying to erect the new shed that the Brinkman is going to take pride of place.
