Then theres this... on an old device , having a sort out & throw out to the right places, this little fella i found in our back room 6 or 7 yr ago asleep in a cardboard box .. hes still alive and comes for his left overs every other night . Ive only held him when he was young , he comes to about 10 feet from me he nods his head after his eaten then off he goes . My husky when he was alive brought him in doors on several ocassions , Many evenings as the sun was setting me & the wife would watch the husky go off up the garden lay down then the fox would come out & lay near him.

I have the opportunity to go to Wembley this evening to watch the Lionesses in their Euro qualifier against Sweden. So I thought I'd see if I have any old England programs to copy poster meat from and so far these have turned up: (The cup final one is to make up the numbers!) :-D

Did you ever see an orange ball used at Wembley Mick? Very popular in 1966 :-D

I honestly don't remember Neil, but it is highly likely because my Dad used to print the Wembley programs and as a perk frequently got tickets to games, including the 1966 World Cup. However I think it is highly likely that an orange ball was used in some winter games we attended. :-D

Good to see another baker on the forum Vic :-D

Mine from yesterday..
20240404_101102.jpg
All hand-made except the initial knead performed by my vintage Kenwood Chef equipped with a dough hook.

This is very much a wholemeal loaf and way better than I can buy from any shop locally... Main thing is for me is that I know exactly what goes into this loaf. No additives whatsoever and it lasts very well...

I do a 50/50 wholemeal in my bread machine at home, but I add sunflower, poppy, sesame, and pumpkin seeds into the mix. Turns out lovely. Like you, Jim, I like the fact that I know what's gone into it. I can get 12 slices and 3 days out of it :)
Sadly no longer a C5 owner :(

I put loads of seeds in mine too Robin :D And a good dose of caraway seed for a bit more flavour...

Mine lasts about three days - or less. One reason I make my own by hand is size. My bread maker makes great loaves but they're too big for me and I end up wasting half of it whereas by hand I can make a small loaf that I can eat all of with no waste. My bread maker seems incapable of making a decent small loaf. All attempts end up as misshapen bricks :lol:

And besides, I find baking a loaf by hand a very satisfying activity. I start the dough off early, then go for a run as it proves. knock it down and add seeds when I get home and enjoy breakfast whilst it does its second rise and gets ready for the oven :D

And then that lovely smell of fresh-baked bread all over the house :D
