Well, it's 6:44 am and I'm not rushing to finish anything, I'm not thinking that I must have my bath soon or I'll be running late, I'm not checking my planning in case there's anything I have forgotten. I'm sitting here, idly pondering over what I can do today that doesn't involve work. I stayed late at school yesterday to get the new display up for after half term (it looks really nice too), I am up to date with marking, etc, and the planning is virtually done. Bliss!
I think I want to have a go at the eight strand plaited loaf that was shown on the Bake Off programme. I will cheat, of course, and make the dough in the breadmaker. It's the actual plaiting that fascinated me and once you've got the sequence sorted it's not actually too difficult - or is that famous last words! We will see.
Also I have to pick up Beth's birthday cupcakes and sort out a nice dinner for her. I want it to involve use of my potato ricer so I guess it will be gardener's pie with a lovely cheesy mash topping - naughty but very nice. Alex can have a savoury mince base. I might set to and make a really tasty onion gravy too.
Having said no work, I do rather fancy trawling some sites for resources, etc. It doesn't count because it's fun and I choose to do it for fun. :-)
