Morning all. I forgot to take pictures of my turkey burgers yesterday, so sorry about that. They were lovely, though, and went down a treat with the whole family. Definitely making those again! First time I've ever used turkey mince, and I was very impressed with how light it felt. Can recommend it highly!
Had a few days off work, which has been nice. Spent most of it spending time with someone, naturally...which was nice.
Also have been finding out about my great-great-great-grandfather. Long time readers will recall me looking for his wife last year, as she was sadly committed to a mental institution during the last years of her life and I wanted to find out why. To add another dimension to the whole tale, I discovered yesterday that he had lost his job as a sailor for unknown reasons sometime during the 1850s, and after this he left his family and took to roaming around the country as a tramp. My mission is to find more out about this, as I've found him in prison in Manchester in 1881 (which is bizarre given his was from Kent...certainly roamed about!) and a newspaper report of how he died a few years later. He'd gone back to Kent by this point, and one day was discharged from the workhouse in Sandwich. Later that day he was brought back in, having collapsed in the street from unknown causes. He died later that day. All very sad really, and paints quite a tragic story. Just wonder why he lost his sailor job setting the whole chain of events in motion.
