A strange start to the day as I woke up and R wasn’t there. Not unusual in itself, but I called ‘hello’, which usually results in a cup of tea, but no response. After 10 minutes I went downstairs and couldn’t find him! Checked upstairs – no. Looked outside to see that his car was missing and only then did I remember that he was going to Walsall campus to take the Happy Cubes back!
After breakfast I decided to do some baking, so picked a chocolate shortbread recipe for the GBBO book. Using the mixer I followed the recipe but instead of a dough I got chocolate coloured breadcrumbs. No idea why. So I added an egg and put the mixture in a baking tin, and the result was fine. Also prepared flapjacks mixture but couldn’t cook it until the shortbread was cool enough to turn out.
Lunch was focaccia and soup which was lovely. Then baked then flapjacks and went upstairs to crochet. I finished the dragon egg bag which is very pretty and then found a flowery bag to start, which is quite complex but again pretty.
It is now 7pm and R has gone to choir practice and I will be cooking pizza for dinner shortly.
