I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I am British and like everyone else in Britain, I’m a big fan of The Great British Bake Off.
I come from a family of bakers – my mum used to bake professionally and my sister is a very close second, my dad made marshmallows once but he’s more the chef of the house.
To anyone else’s standards, I’m a pretty good at baking, but not to the standards of my house. We thoroughly enjoy watching bake off.
I don’t know what it is that’s so engaging about the show – the contestants that are oh so relatable and adorable, Mel and Sue’s wonderfully awful puns or the endearing knowledge of Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood but I’m addicted. I’m hoping that my flat mates at uni are going to be watching BBC1 at 8pm on a Wednesday night because I don’t know how long I’m prepared to wait to watch #GBBO on iPlayer!
If nothing else, it’s given me a craving to start baking and decorating and trying things I haven’t baked before. I’m excited to go to uni and start baking – I’m not allowed to bake at home because we’re all trying to lose weight and if there’s cakes in the house, it’s not going to go well.
The Bake Off has a big impact on the Luckett household.
On a completely unrelated note – if you’re interested in hearing about my trip to Ecuador, I posted my first YouTube video in a series I’m calling ‘Ecuador Stories’. It’s about when my hold luggage 80 litre bag got caught in a baggage carousel (probably) and destroyed – a funny story in hindsight!
Thank you for reading (and watching!),
That’s where you’ll find me:
