(no subject)

My market haul today was some fresh young goat's cheese, sparkly crisp new season's apples, loquats (which were extraordinarily cheap because only a few of us know what they are and they don't cook into anything), zucchini flowers, a potato, some very young sweet Japanese cucumbers, six tiny rich dark-red capsicums (why do I think that this ought to be capsica and then want to make science fiction jokes?) and some tomatoes. This balances what I got on Friday and I'm fine for the week, except that I will need to buy milk in a few days. I've done all my cooking-in-advance, too - these are all for making on the day.

This means I'm very well-placed to do much, much work this week. I have several things to finish, and I would like to write 14k of the novel. I think I've found out a way for me, personally, to avoid a sagging middle (which my novels are prone to, first draft) and I want to get past it and find out if this works.

In other news, spring lasted less than a week, in the end, and we're already into summer.

Open Question Time

Open question time is on my other blog. NOT HERE. Do not ask me questions here. I will not answer them. Go to: http://www.gillianpolack.com/open-question-time/

Edit: Note the date. This post is now entirely inaccurate due to... so much going wrong. My website is fine. And the rest is being trouble shot, one bit at a time. And breakfast today (Friday) was matcha icecream because it made things emotionally easier.
