Bread maker and my first loaf & update

Yesterday I took the day off to watch over the little sick ewe, who is doing heaps better, she up and trying to eat from a tray. I picked up worm farms from council clean ups/side of the road/verge and use the black round colander trays to feed the sheep, great when it rains it just washes away.We still supplementing their feed with lucerne/oaten chaff, stud mix and sheep pellets, cost a fortune but there really is not enough grazing for them. The rains just keep going over Mulgoa, must be something the people of Mulgoa did, and now they getting punished for it lol. Anyway I named her Sally is doing heaps better, even escaped the sheep shed to join her mum (Bella's Mum) under the tree, while I raked out the old bedding and put some fresh hay down. Only I had to catch her by the hind leg and then managed to pick her up and carry her back. The swelling around her little face has gone down a little. And she's drink by herself now.

Anyway after paying the rent I popped in at the Salvo's in Penrith, and picked up a breadmaker for $35.00, cheap as. (Panasonic)complete with booklet. Well yeah you guessed it I needed to try it out asap. and baked a basic white bread this evening.It came out great, and is now cooling under a tea towel, just waiting to be cut into slices for tomorrows lunch.

It past my bed time so goodnight to all, and a wonderful day to everyone else.
see ya soon
