Thank you friendly flower (you know who you are) for your message of support.
I love Bank Holiday weekends. The whole week feels different after 3 whole days of family time and, the shortened coming week adds to the feeling that summer is on its way.
After buying the River Cottage Handbook on Bread, my loaves are getting better and better and I am loving pouring so much heart and soul into my bread. It's a really nice earthy feeling feeding your family something so basic and yet so powerful, something that you have to invest both time and energy into making. I feel quite grounded by making bread.
