that was, watching GBBO.......on the edge of my seat, but the winner was clear even after the first challenge!! I think the street heard me cheer when the winner was announced!! It has made me rethink certain things. I always used to bake cakes, buns, donuts etc but I think I have got a bit lazy. I paid almost £2 yesterday for two buns for us to have with out afternoon tea. They were delicious, fudge topping and filled with creme pat. My hands cannot knead as they used to but my bread machine has a dough only programme, so watch this space. Only thing is I no longer have a deep fat fryer to cook donuts in, will have to have a think about that one.
Phew, down to earth now.
Report on the new washer....so far no complaints, took the bed linen with the quilt cover no problem, the first overnight wash completed fine. Last night I put in a white wash at 60c on the short wash programme, just hung it out, perfect!! two tea towels I had put in which were quite badly stained have come out stainless!! excellent result. The larger drum means I do not have to wash so frequently and using the E7 I can wash overnight and its ready to hang out when I get up, which on these autumn mornings is a distinct plus. If it is not fine enough to hang it out, it dries overnight on the clothes airer in the living room after we have gone to bed. Just the odd thick thing needs a bit extra time. So all in all I recommend it, have to give it 5*.
Into town this afternoon, DB has an appointment at the BP clinic, I also have to pick up a maslin pan from Boyes, we will then travel into Leicester for his appointment with the consultant at 4.30pm. We will be late home, so having lunch instead of supper today.
I may be back later.
