Day 9…and a goodbye

Day 9…and a goodbye

So here we are on a lovely sunny Monday. Herman and I spent the weekend together and we had a great time. Although to be honest, Herman doesn’t do a huge amount. He has spent the last few days being stirred, growing a little, gurgling a little more and giving off a faint whiff of yeasty bread. 

I actually fed him before the weekend which was an enjoyable experience. He increased to twice if not three times his normal size and became slightly runny. I was afraid for a day or two that I might have killed him, but he recovered reasonably quickly and continued to grow.

Unfortunately, I will be handing over my new friend Herman to our sub-editor Hugh today, this is because I am abandoning him (Herman) for a few days and won’t be able to look after him properly. Hugh will continue to stir him and feed him and have the pleasure of using him to bake a cake. 

I am a little saddened that I will not taste the fruits of my labour. But I’m sure Herman’s offspring will be passed around soon for me to try. 

Good luck Hugh.
