What with the new kitchen and also work being done on das Boot, my outgoings are rather higher than usual. Sales of the Ginger Ninja calendar will not, alas, bring me great wealth, so I am accepting every job offered to me, yea even unto one that is going to extend my working day this Wednesday to around 9pm.
I was just wondering about sore feet, and snatched meals. But it suddenly dawned on me that I am going to miss the GBBO final.
Being new to this Bake Off business, I mistakenly thought they kept going down to the last two bakers. I only realised last week after the semi-final, which title should have been something of a clue, that there was only one more round to go.
I guess it’s the equivalent of gold, silver and bronze medals. All three bakers going into the final know they have a place on the podium. My hopes are still on Nadiya winning, and I was delighted when on An Extra Slice (yes, I really am that addicted) with Jo Brand, Danny Baker said that he too had picked her out in round one as the baker he wants to win.
I love watching twitter when Bake Off is on, and sometimes joining in, so I shall have to forgo that pleasure on Wednesday evening.
But I suspect that when I get home, as soon as MasterB is settled, I shall be going to BBC iPlayer to catch up. And don’t think for a moment I shall be going out on Friday evening. I shall be enjoying the last An Extra Slice and the telephone will be switched to silent.
