Quick update
Oh, dear. I've had to go into the Habitica Inn [ie freeze the game] because the day got sucked up in testing a new version of a programming editor thingy to ensure that what I have at home is the same as what they've just installed in the college. Also had to spend time testing versions of the programs that the students will be doing. Last year we were using an older version of the software, so what I produced last year needs converting to run on the new version.

Sigh...
However, in other news, the blackberries I picked yesterday were absolutely delicious baked in a pie, eaten with cream.

Current Mood: busy busy

Yay for blackberries! I picked some from the garden today.

I don't think we've actually had fewer blackberries this year but they're ripening in stages rather than all coming ripe together. Hence we have had a series of pies and crumbles, but I haven't made any jam yet. I may have to look further afield.

I've been swamped by everything lately, but I think I need to take a pie break now. I only wish I could find blackberry pie somewhere.

From what my other online American friends have said, your blackberry season is considerably earlier than ours. They were enjoying pie when ours were barely past the flower stage!

Yes, I am checked into the tavern today because last night I had an acute case of what was apparently a norovirus. After a very bad night I've spent the day sleeping, dozing in the recliner and cautiously eating bland foods. I think I am on the mend but don't have enough energy to do anything useful.
