In other news: PEAS! 😀 My lovely little veg garden is coming along - it's already bigger than the herb garden I created last year. It's amazing how a tiny plant - something that I could fit into the palm of my hand - is now almost as tall as I am, and provides me with fresh, delicious peas whenever I care to venture outside. It's silly how much it enthrals me. And slightly worrying. The whole process feels new and exciting to me, which is great - but doesn't this demonstrate how far removed we are generally from the methods of food production? That ziplock bag of peas that you buy from Sainsbury's on your food shop every couple of weeks? It's easily the entire crop of five times the plant you see here. Just something to think about.

I took the results of the live training tutorial, and ran with them; adding an indestructible block, a block that spawns a multiball powerup, and better (but still ropey) paddle physics. Not bad for a few hours' work!I think I'm going to continue building on it. A level editor will be the next order of business I expect.
