When I came to make my lunch this morning I found that I had no bananas. There was a rather scrummy looking bread’n’butter pudding on offer in the canteen today. In some kind of rather flawed and backward logic I substituted the former for the latter, and yes it was rather scrummy.

Whether or not what happened next is cause and effect or just rather nice coincidence, I then proceeded in working well into my Blood & Fire revisions, finishing the completely new passage at the beginning of part three and getting stuck into the line editing of what’s already there. Good times… 🙂
