A Long Slog

 I've been off work today as Orla is sick. She has an ear infection. So I decided to make sourdough using Dan Lepard's method, which requires attention throughout the day. Luckily, I managed to get the loaves to the point of having shaped them and left them to prove before Orla's temperature went so high she nearly had a fit and I had to get an emergency appointment with the GP for her. So all in all, a very stressful day, but I still had two lovely loaves to show for it by the end, and a little girl whose temperature seems to be returning to normal. She loves muffins, she says, so that's what I'll be attempting tomorrow.

 Your picture looks great with good slashes and a good crumb. It is ideal to have something physical to do when you are worried and stressed out. I ama glad things are now a little better.

The saying is - it's an ill wind.  What with your daughter being ill you were able to bake two lovely looking loaves.  I am pleased that Orla seems to be getting better.  Just keep a bottle of the "chemical cosh" - Calpol - handy to keep the temperature in check.
