Lost my favourite recipe for bread, please help!

I moved house a few months ago, and the bread recipe I cherished, which lived on a post-it note stuck to my cupboard, disappeared during the move.
It was a basic recipe, all purpose flour, yeast, salt and water, nothing else.
What I do remember is, you would mix the ingredients together, then leave it in a covered container, on the kitchen surface for about 3-4 hours. By that time it's kinda all fallen down on itself and is a bubbly gooey mess.
Then I would leave it in the fridge for about 12-14 hours.
This is where I really start to get fuzzy-- I think the next stage was to make some more dough, still never having to knead it, and then mix that cold gooey mixture with it-- leave it to rest for a while, quick knead, score the dough, then leave it again-- and finally throw it in a very hot oven.
I'm kicking myself for losing it, so please, if you know of a recipe that's close to that process can you mention it below and hopefully I can slowly recover from this terrible loss!
