This really was the best loaf I’ve baked to date, it was the first cold oven sourdough bake and has been patiently waiting in my freezer for this very weekend, the flavour was just wonderful. I’m loving the structure of the loaf, you can really see the wild yeasts at work.
Hubby and I decided it might be quite nice to trot around Marylebone for my birthday treat and it was wonderful. I hardly took any photographs and hubby has wandered off with his, so I’ll have to see what he has later in the week.
Is this not the most beautiful book shop you have ever seen? It was at the end of the day when we found it, we were tired, we are so going back to spend a couple of hours just browsing. Its called Daunts Bookshop and if you are passing whilst in Marylebone, you must pop in, you really must.
So for my birthday presents it will come as no great surprise to find some lovely cups from Anthropologie, they just make me want to drink good coffee and fine tea all day, and a spanking brand new reading book from Daunts. So happy.
And my lovely hubby, who knows I am bonkers anyway.
It was a great birthday, I feel very blessed.
