I write two blogs a month for different blogging sites. Today is the 5th so I’m HERE at Girls Heart Books. Yay!
On the 26th of every month I’m HERE, blogging for An Awfully Big Blog Adventure. Yay again!
I’m not known for my silence. I’ve pretty much got something to say about everything but, for some reason, this month I struggled to come up with anything to talk about. My last ABBA post (Are You a Lemon or A Passion Fruit?) scored a big fat duck with the readers.
Yup. Zero comments. I was mortified. I must try harder to write something interesting, I told myself. And of course, my brain responded by freezing. Long walks in the glorious autumn sunshine, trips around the world via the internet, trawling through books did nothing to provide me with the inspiration for a new GHB post.
I needed cake and trust me, the large butterfly cake liberally spread with vanilla buttercream was very comforting. Better still, it was the answer to my blogging problem.
I’ll blog about CAKE.
Who’s watching Bake Off? It’s the finals on Wednesday and I can hardly wait. Trouble is I want all three of the finalists, Ian, Nadiya and Tamal, to win – plus Flora, who sadly went out in last week’s semi-finals.
By a strange coincidence, while I was munching my way through butterfly cake, I read some exciting news. Remember Martha from last year? The lovely, talented Martha Collison was The Great British Bake Off’s youngest ever contestant. Well, HarperCollins has just acquired her first cookbook, Twist.
CONGRATULATIONS Martha and if you fancy a guest blog spot here on GHB, to talk about Twist, then email me now, Julie at email@example.com 😉
Then, I remembered something else. Tomorrow, a very good friend of mine is having a special birthday.
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
Happy Birthday. I can’t wait to see you and celebrate with a slice of CAKE.
But, I digress. Back to GBBO. It’s the finals Wednesday. Will you be watching? Who do you want to win?
