Hi all,
I will be doing a scroll sawing and pyrography post soon now that the weather is warming up. I have done a bit of work in the workshop recently and have made an extractor for when I'm sanding with my rotary tool. I made it from an old washing up bowl and a brush attachment from the vacuum cleaner. My wife won't find out because she is a stranger to the hoover. Anyway, I will show you the finished article in my next post.

What I wanted to share with you today was a couple of things to do with buns. Tomorrow is Good Friday, so I decided to have a go at making some hot cross buns in the bread maker that my wife got me for Christmas. I kid you not, I have been making all our own bread this year and very good it is too. The bread maker cost only £50 and I would recommend it to anybody. It is so easy to make a loaf, it saves money, you know what ingredients went into making it and it tastes amazing.

Here is a photo of one of my loaves.
Not bad looking even if I do say so myself. The hot cross buns I made today don't look bad either although I think I could have used a better recipe.
The other bun I wanted to tell you about is my second book in the Fishing Detectives series, "Bun In The Oven" is free today and tomorrow (24th and 25th March 2016) to download from Amazon.
To get your free download, just click on the books tab at the top of the page and click on the book. I hope you enjoy it over the Easter hols.
