After the Empire fell, baking competitions were all that was left to hold on too. Probably.

I have been in a room where it was on in the background, but that was about it. I wanted to watch Top Gear, but my sister got the remote first. Meh.

Dorothy...I will say this only once... CAKE is of the utmost importance in this sad sad world.. Especially if it is presented by the blue eyed god who is Paul Hollywood..You are seriously mislead if you think otherwise.

Not probable Sultan!! They were the essential building blocks that made the loss bearable.Personally I watch when deeply bored by yet another b****y game of snooker on the box.. I am more interested in the hint of sexual vibe between Hollywood and Mary Berry.. who knew.. there's hope for older ladies yet.-

I love GBBO. But from the comments from UK friends on FB yesterday, you would think it was the end of the world.


One of them said that having adverts would ruin it. Well, when it's shown here in Australia, it has adverts and no, it doesn't ruin it. (At least it has natural spots for an ad break... I've seen adverts shoved in the middle of scenes in some BBC dramas which really does ruin the moment, lol)

It'll still be the same production company producing it, just a different channel airing it. It's a shame that Mel and Sue are leaving, because (especially after watching the Aussie made version) good presenters can really make a difference.

But jeez.

I like snooker. It was only on TV four times a year as far as I remember anyway. Spring wasn't spring without the Embassy.

I decided this year to cut back on my flowerbeds and shrub beds because of lack of time, busy at work,not wanting to fight the heat and mosquitoes and quite honestly because I am not as energetic as I was. We made a big difference by adding decking and making the beds smaller and easier to take care of.

A neighbour stopped by and said how she missed seeing all my pretty flowers and I told her why. She looked at me and said " well I manage ok, can't believe you give in so easy"

Well lady, you are 7 years younger than me, you have never worked outside the home all of your married life, you have half the amount of land we have...plus you have a yard guy!

Another one off the Christmas Card list

Sorry. It's just a numbers game though. It's always no until suddenly it's yes.

Snooker was never the same for me once we had a colour TV .
