I have found a feral crabapple tree, and now I have plans for crabapple and rosehip jelly.  Hurrah!  I don't have a recipe, so I will be chucking chopped crabapples and rosehips (in a 2:1 ratio, I think) into a pot along with a couple of quartered lemons, and then proceding as for quince jelly.  If it doen't work, I've lost nothing but a few kilogrammes of sugar, and it if works I've gained another batch of yummy preserves.  Yay for free food!

The maternal grandmother of my first boyfriend is seriously ill, and this might seem like a strange reason to burst into tears in front of the computer, but this particular grandmother is such a fantastic, strong-willed, generous woman and it breaks my heart to think of her suffering through her current illness.  It is made worse by the fact that her gandson and I broke up almost a decade ago, so she won't remember me and therefore I can't visit or send her a card or flowers or my best wishes and hope for a recovery.
