The Windsor Castle

Posted on 2014/03/01 21:57:11 (March 2014).

[Sunday 16th February 2014]
Thanks to jetlag we all woke up very early - so around 5sm or so I decided to get up and make some bread. We didn't really have the correct ingredients - regular flour instead of bread flour, and the yeast was out of date - but I decided to give it a go anyway, as otherwise we wouldn't have anything in for breakfast. I left the dough to rise and went back to bed for a bit, although don't recall now whether I managed to get any more sleep or not.

So for breakfast we had my freshly baked bread. It wasn't great but it was better than nothing (which was the other option for breakfast) and anything baked is at least fairly pleasant when fresh out of the oven and still warm. A mostly uneventful morning after that, I think we may have done a bit of unpacking and tidying up, possibly some other domestic chores. Towards the end of the morning I took Erika for a wander round the gardens so Chie could have a bit of a break.

In the afternoon Chie had arranged to meet up with a friend of hers, with Erika in tow, so I was left to my own devices for a few hours. So I decided to head over to the wonderfully eccentric Windsor Castle in Marylebone, as of course whilst we'd been off gadding about in the Far East I had been craving the reassuring environs of a decent pub. What a lovely place to wile away a quiet hour or so. Although I did have a bit of a cough, which was something of an annoyance as I recall.

Back at home I was falling asleep by about 7:30.
