My Exciting News (and television debut)!!

The life and times of this manic mummy has just got seriously exciting.  

My little secret is that I am one of the ten amateur bakers taking part in the new BBC2 series ‘The Great British Bake Off’ hosted by Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc with the fabulous judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.  

The series starts next Tuesday 17th August 8pm on BBC2 and runs for six weeks.  But as from here my lips are sealed – you’ll have to watch to find out how I do!

You can see the advert here (I’m the girlie in the turqouise cardigan with a flower in my hair!)
