Have I sold out?

I have a bread maker *blush*

Even though I have scoffed at such things many times in the past. Even though I maintain that if you're going to make bread you should do it right and get in there with your hands....

I do still think all this.

However.... the price of bread is just STUPID now. And while I LOVE to make my own bread *properly* what I lack is the time and the space. With 2 kiddies - regardless of hubby being home or at work (yay, he's got a job again!) - I don't really have the time to mix and kneed the bread, or have anywhere I can proof it. Once upon a time I used to rest it on top of the radiator in the living room, but that meant only having home baked bread in the dead of winter. And think about it, 2 kids and a cat with bread dough sat right there in poking reach... it's not going to happen.

So I have a bread maker. It's a Christmas present from my mum. One I'm allowed to have now and use. She brought it over today. I've baked two loaves already. 1 whole wheat, 1 white. Tried the whole wheat. It's actually quite nice. Probably better than my hand made stuff. Probably......

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.
