Boris bikes #2

Well it didn’t last long.  After 10 journeys via bike, yesterday a grinning bus driver purposely denied me right of way and tried to run me off the road.  I’d already decided to get a camera, next time I’ll report him and or his colleagues.  Here the helmet is sporting an SJ4000 camera which for £65 cones with all the accessories you’d need!

Sourdough proving baskets.

I bought some proving baskets as I fancied some prettier and more uniform breads. Left one a bit too long in the oven at a high temperature. Still tasty!  I got the whirly pattern by removing the flour fabric.

It’s nice to spend time out in the woods, but even better if you cook eggy bread for lunch over a small stove to the amazement of a toddler.

With added tomatoes for something healthy…

I’ve started cycling in central london! Its cheaper (I only need to do 40 journeys in a year to pay for the pass) and about the same time to cycle from Liverpool St to Holborn.

Steam fair and beach

Even though it was pretty rubbish weather we decided to go to the steam carnival on the bank holiday weather. The rain turned it into a bit of a mud bath and joy of joys sam decided he needed the loo just as we got into the wall of death.

So after we went to the much calmer beach. I found the tell tale signs of a small crab, so we dug him up to show sam

He wasn’t so sure.
