Playing Catch Up

On Sunday night Baby Girl didn't sleep well so I didn't get much done yesterday. Fortunately Hubby didn't have any work booked so I was able to stay in bed after the morning feed to catch up a bit on my sleep. Thankfully it seems to have been a one off glitch as she seems to be sleeping fine again now.

I didn't make bread yesterday with all the disruption so I'm doing it today but am only doing two loaves as we don't seem to be geting through it as quickly at the moment.

I also want to make some hot cross buns tomorrow. They are at the experimental stage as I want to make them using sourdough but all the recipes for hot cross buns use yeasted bread. I am making hot cross buns to give to hubby's family for Easter because they always give Easter Eggs but (aside from the complete rip-off and waste of packaging with Easter Eggs) we don't want to give chocolate. Well actually it's me who objects to the chocolate and hubby said that he was fine with us giving something else as long as it had some kind of connection with Easter and wasn't just something completely random.

The kumquat and orange marmalade I made a few weeks ago came out okay but Hubby said he wasn't that keen on it and he is the one who eats the marmalade so I probably won't try it again. He's agreed to us trying to brew some kombucha so hopefully I'll be starting that soon.

On the reading front, I'm still reading The Woman in White. I think it's probably one we'll keep but I want to read the whole thing as I've forgotten quite a lot of it.

Wow, I wish someone would give me a gift of home made hot cross buns!

Have a lovely Easter.

Unfortunately I left them in the oven too long and they ended up rock solid so we had to give a loaf instead.

Hope you had a nice Easter too.
