yay!  i'm glad you got one.  my mom got one when i was about 12, but only used it like three times, each time with a mix.  and the mixes came out tasting like CRAP.  They were soooo dense and just, eew nasty.  years later my friend gave me one and the bread comes out wonderful every time, and i wouldn't dream of using a mix.

good to see someone else discovering the joys of making their own bread  Grin

my parents bought me a Morphy Richards Fastbake last november (my 28th birthday) and I havent bought bread or rolls since!

I make 10 rolls every sunday for the following week's lunches at work for me & DH, and I cant seem to stop experimenting with it - my latest was a wholewheat pizza base made using the dough setting. Needless to say the pizza was delicious  Tongue mmmm

If you are looking for some different recipies I have found a few here which are really good.

i have personally used these recipes several times.  (the bagels especially.  they make such great bagel dogs with a polish sausage rolled up in em. 
  whatever you do, do not ignore the bread machine's recommended order of ingredients.

I've had trouble with the UK bread machines, I think they try to be clever and make them more loaf shaped, so they are wider at the bottom, but I often end up with flour stuck in the corners, which is not a problem I had in Norway, where they have taller machines, but the mixer can reach the corners.  Anyways I only use mine for dough, and then shape it out myself and bake in the oven... It turns out nicer that way.  Smiley  I've never had too much problem with the order I put things in, but in general something liquid should go in first, just to stop the dough from sticking.

I really like this one - light oat bread but I also add 4 tblspns of powdered skimmed milk. - It makes a lovely light white bread. Light bake setting and 2lb weight.

I dont have this issue with mine - but then my tin is quite tall.

Re the order - it's liquids first then the dry ingeredients with the yeast last - this is most important if you are setting the machine to turn on after a delay (I put all the ingredients in at night and set mine to turn early mornign so the bread is ready when I get up) - If the yeast touches the water it will start to react and your bread wont work as well/at all.
