Hallelujah, I can now post the photos which are a basic human blogging right, and late Friday evening I had to do something which wasn’t work, so I made these addictive biscuits with the half-brain which was still faintly sparking.
(I must point out this is not my image but mine look just like this, thank you Mareena Jerrish)

English Digestive Biscuits
Toss into a food processor
4 oz wholemeal flour
4 oz oats
one tablespoon demerara sugar
1/2 teaspoon each salt and bicarbonate of soda
juice from half a lemon
3 oz butter
Mix to crumb consistency then add:
1 fluid ounce milk
until the consistency is manageable but relatively ‘dry’. (She says half the milk, but it didn’t work for me).
Roll out on a floured board, 1/8″ thick, cut into circles and prick all over with a fork. Put them on a greased baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes at 180 degrees C, 350 degrees F or Gas Mark 4, until very slightly browned. These taste better when they have cooled.
