A warm gift

I baked bread today and gave one to my friend, The Queen King, when we met for coffee. Even though it was zero degrees during the 15 minute cycle into Eton it remained warm from the oven, wrapped inside an old linen tea-towel in the pannier bag. The Queen King said she’d never been given a loaf of bread as a present before, as she cuddled its warmth. I hope she liked it, especially as I gave her the better of the two loaves.
