The news is depressing, isn't it? Though I was watching BBC24 when N*dine D*rries stood up and said "I am pro-choice", a small bright spark in an otherwise grindingly grim day. Things aren't going so well for me at the moment, but I'm doing the sort of training that explains that joining in with the complaining doesn't help you solve the problem, so I'll leave it at that.
Autumn has come crashing in, bringing wilt and mildew in its wake, when I'd hardly harvested my first aubergines. I also have Tomato Loopers, bah. Different greenhouse strategy next year. Although on the plus side, my Achochas are fruiting (kind of a South American cucumber vine) which is a whole brand new flavour in the food.
Bad dreams, including one where all the children in a seaside town suddenly fell down in a dead faint. The ones in the sea drowned, even though we were trying so hard to get to them all. I watched Cowboys and Aliens which was a bold and somewhat insane movie. I wore my suit another couple of times. I think I may need to find one that has pockets.
Oh, and I hear that Nelson is coming out soon. I did a chapter, tangled right up in the intense continuity of Nelson's late 20s, with a mass of to-and-froing about the characters and their environment. It's funny how quaintly exotic the 90s seem from now. Anyway, do go friend them on Facebook if you do such things because it's a big strange project and it's for charity and it's just really not like anything else at all.
