Trick or treat...



The only child I managed to get a photo of this year. It was a very hectic, confused evening.

2011 Pumpkins


This is mine - witch with clouds.


This is Sarah's - some kind of demon or sprite I think.


Sarah's friend, Katharine, went for the traditional look.


Alex's cyclops pumpkin. Love this one!



This one doesn't show as well, but it's brilliant - Olivia's "creepy" pumpkin with bats.

Birthday outing


Olivia & Nina - queuing outside the London Dungeon. For ages. (Though I did most of the queuing and they went off and explored the local shops and landmarks. I had a book.)


But it was fun.


Gourmet Burger. Yum.


Wandering along the South Bank, including a bit of poking around on the "beach", as the tide was out.



Heading home as the sun started to set.

Bread



Alex and I made some bread today - by hand, not in the bread machine. It's a wholemeal bread with seeds in it. Smells great (we are having it for dinner with some minestrone soup which I need to go make instead of carrying on doing computer stuff) - feels nice and light, so hopefully it will taste great as well.





Here's the dought - you can see some seeds -


and here it is after the final proving. All the seeds on top pretty much fell off in the baking, though. I think it probably needs an egg-wash to glue them on!
