I might have got the jam made this evening, but my usual supermarket (the Co-op) was out of sugar! Totally! I can only assume that lots of other people had the same idea as me and had spent the weekend blackberrying and jam making. Also the Co-op had no cooking apples, so I had to drive to the other supermarket (EuroSpar) where fortunately I found both.
In other news, though I'm not actually writing fiction again, I am seriously thinking about it and I am opening the story files and gently poking at them. I am even altering a word here or there. I don't remember why, but from the weird errors that are completely the wrong word rather than simply typos, I seems that I was using Dragon Naturally Speaking to type the first draft, presumably from a hand written draft because I've never been able to dictate straight into the computer. Anyway, I'm starting to re-load the story into my memory and we'll see where that leads.
