Much to my sadness, my summer is coming to an end. I’ve been getting more rain than sunshine and although everything looks lovely and green, I’m missing those long hot evenings. New Zealand Daylight Savings doesn’t end for another month or so, but I’m acutely aware the clock is ticking with Pacific Standard Time switching to Summer Time at the weekend.
This month, I was going to post a picture of my broom cupboard office so you could all drool over my efficient work space complete with Dr Who poster and Gorganite action figure! However, my camera has decided to have a hissy fit and is refusing to co-operate (or even work). So that will have to wait until next month. As an alternative, I’ve posted a picture that I forgot to post earlier of my vessel on Malachite. She is all decorated for Halloween and I dressed up to match the decor.
While I'm posting, can I also mention how thankful I was to find that it wasn’t just me who found bilging immediately after speed foraging on Cursed Isle so difficult to do? The first time I did those two puzzles together, I could feel my brain quivering a little in my skull as it tried to cope with the pieces going up rather than down and the different techniques for clearing pieces. The second time, I was mentally prepared for it but apparently my brain still couldn’t cope and I scored a rather embarrassing ‘fine’ on the way out.
My current goal is to score an excellent at bilge on the exit from Cursed Isle. Given that I hardly ever get an excellent at bilge even during pillaging runs, I may have my work cut out for me!
