I've always wanted to be more self-sufficient, but I've been too lazy/tired/busy to actually do anything about it. Well, today I took advantage of a child-free day and made some bread. I'm so proud of it - two lovely white crusty loaves. I just ate a few slices with butter and jam, and it's so good! Think I'll have to start getting up earlier and baking my own bread, the shop stuff just can't compete with a good home-made loaf.
