BLACKBERRY JAM! Whenever I visited my grandmother, I'd take jars of the stuff home with me. The blueberry jam was divine too. There really is nothing like proper jam, grown in your own little garden and made at home.

Similarly, my mother made her own tomato sauce, grew all of her own vegetables, had a few apple trees, and so forth. Stuff bought in the supermarket has nothing on that.

Oh hey, you made it! I was just about to send out an e-mail to you and Ali as I figured you'd be getting home from work around about now.

I suppose I should still e-mail Ali to make sure she finds her way here.

Bah, I only came back to make a couple of posts in between kitchen stuff and now look at me, posting away ...

It may not really sound like much, but it actually gets me walking a fair bit.
I have to do a bit of walking at school. But during break, I will go recreationally walking quite a bit. iPod out and wander around the back-streets.

My grandma does that--or I should say did that. She's 88 now, so she doesn't do too much of that stuff. Even though she and my grandpa (who is 90) still go golfing everyday.

That was one of the few issues the mods had with us. Posting in the wrong forum.

I have great trouble wandering aimlessly. I need a place to be, a destination to go, a reason to be out and about. I'm the kind of guy you see walking down the streets very fast, with clear purpose. I can honestly say nobody has ever passed me when I walk at my normal speed.

Though as it turns out, my run isn't all that much faster than my walk.

Oh I definitely walk fast, and have a destination. Or at least a plan. See, I walk the same general area a lot. It just all depends on how far I want to walk, how thirsty I get, etc. Somedays I'll be out 45 minutes. Others I'll be out 3 hours.

My grandmother did until the start of this decade, when she moved to a new house and no longer had the garden large enough to do it. And with my grandfather's declining health, I don't think she would've had the energy. Now that he's passed away, I won't be surprised if she starts again, as something to do.

I love aimless walking, it's just a shame i only do it when i'm visiting another city.

Might start doing it around Auckland a bit

It's hard for me to do that here. Even in the suburbs, there isn't much room to grow things like that.

I'm thinking that one day, I should just sit down with a map and plan out a route. I could stick with that. That's one good thing about inner Melbourne - sure, it's busy, but there's probably interesting places for me to walk.
