I don't know about you, but I am loving The Great British Bake Off on BBC2, I really enjoyed the first series too, but I think this years bakes have been even more impressive.
So imagine my joy when I was browsing the books in Tesco and spotted this for only £10! I have the book of the first series, and love it, but I didn't even realise that they had already made the book for this series. If you own the first book you will know how gorgeous it is, and this one is also rather lovely, although its slightly more "technical" as opposed to just recipes.
It contains all of the recipes of the "technical challenges" from this series along with step by step photos, it also has a huge range of recipes, a mix of ones from within the show and some new ones. The pies and tarts look especially interesting.
I'd love to know if you are enjoying the Bake Off and who you think will win/should win! Personally I would like Jo to win, but I think Holly will. Your thoughts please, as I am sure that you bloggers are watching it, why wouldn't you? Its major eye candy!!
So yes, that was a little gift to myself this week, along with a little bunch of flowers, also from good old Tesco, I find that their flowers really do last well. I am really enjoying the colours of these carnations and roses, the peachy orange is so pretty and a nice autumnal colour too. I have kept my personal promise of buying myself flowers regularly. Surprisingly, the other week the BF said "I thought about buying you some flowers the other day" (he didn't buy them, but the fact that he's "thinking about it" is better than nothing, no?
I'll keep you posted on the flower situation, I just know you are all on the edge of your seats!
