Hello from Birmingham, UK (The west Midlands) Also knows as the Muddylands!
Just to say hi.
I am a returning exile from the land of commercial bread from supermarket shelves.
I gave up eating bread a couple of years ago, but I am now caring for my wife who likes her bread; (She doesn’t seem to get any weight increase from eating whatever she likes!) As I can’t find a decent shop-loaf without preservatives, I decided to make my own bread once more.
I can’t knead these days as I have severe arthritis in my hands. So I bought a bread-machine. I am hoping that doesn’t mean I won’t be welcome here!
My cogs really are wobbly by the way. I have two artificial knees that click and clack, and occasionally clonk. They are fine, but I had to have grease nipples fitted to the sides of my knees, so the joints are always well lubricated. I tried bitter beer, as a lubricant, but although it did wonders for my general mood, it just made my cogs more wobbly!
Looking forward to some banter on the site.
Yours in baking
