It's here, just been delivered at my desk: my lovely breadmaker (and recipe book, chopping board, set of wooden spoons, and focaccia dough mixture)! The box is quite humongous -- how on earth am I going to get it home with me?

Just think of all the exciting bread products you'll be able to make!

Well, I'm home now, and have unpacked it...I've got the day off tomorrow, so I feel an experiment coming on!

I'll say this for my employer: they're not stingy when it comes to Xmas prezzies....It's all lovely and silver-coloured, and I can't wait to try it out!

I love the smell of freshly baked bread in the morning, don't you?

Have fun! :-)

Yes, I do - well actually more 24/7. ;-)

At least you are not still on the cruches trying to carry it home.

All the way home, I was actually comforting myself with that very thought! ;-)

Are you feeling a bit better?

Yes, I am feeling better. Sometimes I just have to have a place to let things out of my brain so I can deal with them. I used to keep a paper journal for just such times, but haven't written a word in it since I've had my lj. I suppose that doesn't really matter as long as the goal is still accomplished.

I am glad to know you did manage to get it home. I have had this picture in my mind of you trying to accomplish that.

Yes, I am feeling better.

I'm so glad. My heart went out to you last night when I read your entry.

I never kept a paper journal, but I find that I've been treating my LJ like one more and more. And speaking of paper: lately, I've found myself wondering if you ever did get that book that meant such a lot to you and that (one of the) the children had been careless with restored to its former glory?

I am glad to know you did manage to get it home. I have had this picture in my mind of you trying to accomplish that.

It took some doing, but I managed it -- and I did get a little help from colleagues and passers-by.

I have kept a sporadic paper journal since I was a child. Whenever there was something I couldn't contain but couldn't share with anyone around me I would pour it out onto the pages. At times I wish I made more entries in my lj than I do, but then I realize I am much more regular with it than I ever was with the paper one.

My book, alas, has not been restored. I have not found any place locally that does that sort of work and have not looked into sending it off to be done. Over the weekend, I let my children come into my room and look at my books to try to encourage my son to read more and they asked me about the old ones. I think it made more of an impression on them how old some of the books are than it had in the past. (Especially when I opened one of the volumes of Shakespeare and started reading it and they didn't understand what it was saying.)

Good to know people are still out there who will lend a hand when you need it.

I suppose having the book restored will keep for a while...I used to know someone who worked in paper restoration at one of our national museums here; I haven't seen or heard from him in ages, but maybe...hmmm. And otherwise, I know there is a convent near here that specializes in book and document restoration -- I'll make some inquiries. There's probably a waiting list as long as your arm, and since most of the sisters are at death's door with very little influx of young maidens to take their place, I don't know what help they can be. But perhaps they'll know of some place in America where the work could be done.
