Yes, I am a bit. I think it's this hot spell.

Ivanhoe, you were told quite firmly what causes this, in the SE1 forum. You obviously haven't been listening to their advice.

I've forgotten.

{edited to say} No. I remember now. Cider makes me go floppy and causes me to have insufficient quantities of "it".

Not cider per se, but too much cider. So with a little bit of occasional abstemiousness you should be OK. Anyway it doesn't sound anything like as bad as Tharg's 'spotty yams'. I do hope he's better now.

could have been a reaction to something that pigeon did all over his washing on his balcony (something very funny he told us at a SE1der making meeting).

My yams aren't very good today, the rest of the groceries are blighted too.

Had a few ciders in The Oak with Tharg (Destroyer of Apples) last night and the SE1 cider group was discussed. It may be that I can borrow my Dad's camper and trailer to fetch the fruit when it's ready. It's not a big trailer but it is well over a foot deep so it ought to be big enough. What's a ton of apples going to look like? Anyway, I'll ask him on the weekend and let you know.
