Friday - Day One

My flour did not arrive in the post, so I've fed my Starters and prepared The Bikkie as if we definitely had enough bread [two loaves only in the freezer makes me a smidge nervous] and hoping it arrives before next Friday, because the only flour I have left are skerricks. I may have to make an expedition to get some organic flour elsewhere.

Time will tell.

Today, Mayhem is out to the place made to help him so he can gain some employment and regular income. Apparently, the commissions he's been getting have paid for his phone charges, but he's realised that "regular and reliable" are more important than "just for now". Yay?

With a wage, he can also get pro lessons and get his driving license at last. Which means that he'll have total freedom to go wherever, do whatever, and spend on whatever. Except, you know, the old capitalist trap of working for the wages and paying the bills.
