Saturday and Sunday

I seem to have missed yesterday's entry.  Ooops.  Not really sure why but it could be because Friday night was very disturbed with some nasty tummy cramps that resulted in lack of sleep and a lot of tension - as when you tense against the pain.  I've found that the best thing is to stretch out as much as you can whereas instinct wants you to curl up.  Anyway, forget the details, I had a bad night.  The next day (yesterday) Alex was over and he was full of cold and quite subdued so I was happy to snooze as he mooched around and also rested quite a lot.  Last night was much better and I slept soundly all through.

Wasn't it a windy night though - It still is fairly windy but it's dry at the moment.  yesterday was sunny and windy and raining heavily, sometimes all together, and I was glad I didn't have to go out.

Today I am trying something out.  A while a go, Diane (I love her blog) realised that her oven could be used as a proving oven.  I tested the temperature on mine but the lowest I could get was too high.  Diane suggested that I try my halogen oven and that seems to be better so I am having a go this morning.  Just one little loaf, 250g of flour, so if it doesn't work there's none wasted.  We will see.

The rest of the day is timetabled for washing, drying, ironing, planning, resource making and a general tidy up - all the stuff I should have done yesterday but didn't feel up to.  Ah, well!


  1. So sorry to hear about the tummy cramps, Joy! How horrible for you. Do hope you are feeling better now?
    Your bread looks lovely by the way - very professional! :o)

  2. :-) Thanks. I'm feeling fine now, I guess it was just one of those things. How are you, lovely friend?

  3. Yes, maybe it was just one of those things, but I hope it isn't caused by stress! Do take the greatest care!
    Thanks so much for asking, I am getting there now - it's been a very traumatic time, but the worst is very definitely over thankfully.
    Hope you're having a good day at school! :o)

  4. Could be stress, who can tell? Thanks for your caring words, Sonja.
    Lots of love
