    @Debandez thanks for the good wishes.
    I like the idea of your auntie visiting from Dublin being a ‘royal’ visit. I can imagine lots of strong tea and chatting and laughter into the early hours. Thats how it used to be with me and my mum. Very precious time Deb.

    It is indeed, like you I don't have a real reason for the 'why' of it. We can only hope it resolves itself PDQ :)

    Congratulations on the anniversary and the many more to come. Enjoy the day and celebratory supper whilst maybe having somewhat of a gap meal from LC.

    Thanks. I am very much hoping it is one of the possibilities that doesn't require sorting quickly.

    Hello my friend. Don't forget that the bicarbonate of soda needs some acid to function. This occurs naturally in the buttermilk for the soda bread. However if attempting very low carbs (no lactose) one would need something like a spoonful of cider vinegar with the lukewarm water, to generate the carbon dioxide.

    An American lady explains all this on Youtube, but she uses five eggs too. I want my scrambled eggs On, not In, my toast!

    [​IMG] Happy Anniversary, @PenguinMum and congratulations!

    [​IMG] @trick60 thank you for inspiring the virtual tour I took of Sonora Pass and Hardknott Pass and Wrynose Pass last night. Beautiful scenery.

    [​IMG] @dunelm and @True Blue thank y'all for the recipes. I wish my mother were here, she would enjoy reading about the bread-making and would be able to offer some helpful input about yeast and baking soda and baking powder.

    [​IMG] @dunelm I will be thinking of you tomorrow while celebrating the birthday of one of my oldest and dearest friends.

    [​IMG] LOL @Debandez I don't do kitchen either, but am always happy to partake of what others have made in one! Please tell me more about the bed y'all are building, as I need a new one.

    [​IMG] @Fndwheelie thank you for the wonderful can of worms you have opened and shared with all of us! And for the online shopping tips -- I keep meaning to try that so I needed a reminder to do so.

    [​IMG] and to everyone talking about staying indoors today because of the weather -- y'all have made me more content about the prospect of staying in today. Thanks.
