(Another heavy writing day – got my epilogue done. Boo-to-the-yah!)

1. The reason for my suppressed giggles on Tuesday arrives: an amusingly incorrect metal plaque for below a picture hanging in our living room. Perhaps D was right, perhaps I did take it too far but it makes us laugh all the same and makes the photo in its cheap frame look very proper indeed.

2. The cherry plums are ripening quickly: the colour difference between breakfast time and dinner time is amazing. From cherry red to deep plum, funnily enough.

3. The powder-covered ice cream falls like dough as I stir it around and around in the bowl.
