the bread, and it was easy and delicious. I have now got several new
recipes I want to try. (There’s a Roquefort/blue cheese and walnut loaf that
sounds to die for!)And thanks to Elaine for the (very logical) suggestion that
I slice up the bread I haven’t eaten and freeze it. I’m going to do that in the
future. If I make rolls or buns etc, I’ll give them to neighbours. Especially
as Easter is coming up, and I want to try to make Hot Cross Buns again.
I became aware too late that this last weekend was the Day-that-shall-not-be-named
in the UK. I hope my readers there passed the day peacefully, and took a little
time for themselves, and to exercise some self-care. Sending hugs. I’m hoping
by now you can recover and dismiss thoughts of the day for another year.
If you are on Facebook, the page for World Childless Week is reposting
all the submissions from WCW last year. There is some wonderful thought-provoking
material there that is, I have to say, much more digestible when it is drip fed
to us at a slower pace. I'm enjoying reading individual's thoughts, and having more time to think about them. It’s well worth a look!
Speaking of Facebook, there is a (recently discovered) feature that allows you to stop notifications for particular dates – if
there are dates/events/posts that are painful, or you’d prefer to forget, you
can opt not to see these in your reminders.
Finally, if you have followed my Insta page (@nokiddinginnz), you’ll
know how completely slack I have been at posting links to my posts recently. Apologies
- I’m planning to do better.
