Thoughts From Thanet

The 2015 Bake Off Contestants

I see that " The Great British Bake Off" is back next week!
Bloody hell, I'd hate to be a researcher on that show. I can hear the producer giving his/her spiel to the BBC minions quite clearly " Scour the British Isles for a dozen TOTALLY different individuals THAT CAN FRIGGING BAKE A CAKE! .........I want black, I want white, I want modern stay at home dads, I want young, I want old, I WANT TATTOOS! I need one that could be taken as a baddie! I NEED a few home county ladies to satisfy the Women's institute fans and if you can GET ME A LESBIAN IN A WHEELCHAIR FROM THE ISLE OF MAN...I'll GIVE YOU A RISE!
I love the " Bake off"
                                        ****************************************

Today we have been booked on a guided tour of St Peters Village. This afternoon tis the beach and this evening is dinner out with Chris' brother and his wife........which will be nice......last night we took ourselves off to Broadstairs for a few drinks and to watch the fireworks on the beach which was fun......I'm now off to read the paper on the loo for a while......here's hoping that will " do the trick"

I'll leave you with a Banksy Mural we saw in Margate yesterday and with the latest International Novelty Vegetable Entry for the Flower Show.......I need all entries in by the weekend if possible!

  1. Weyhey….first comment again! I love the fox, and the ladybird is genius. We were discussing " Bake Off" over lunch yesterday, and oddly enough, my brother said something about a lesbian in a wheelchair…..though I think he said she would be also black !

  3. Bake off already?!
    Oh no, that means there are only a few weeks of summer left, I always think of Bake Off as something to watch on the telly in autumn.
    Along with Strictly it's the only thing that keeps me sane when the nights are drawing in.....and they're doing that already too.

  4. I'm rather surprised that in your mental musings on Margate and its surrounds, Tracey Emin hasn't (yet) made an appearance. But please don't take that as a hint or, worse, a request.

  5. Which newspaper are you reading on the loo? Try "The Daily Mail". That is bound to work and if you have run out of loo roll the newspaper will prove extra handy.

  11. I so enjoy the Bake Off....I hope it airs here at the same time. Eat some fruit and fiber...that'll shake things up!

  12. I used to work for a rectal surgeon. (best job ever right?). He stressed to his patients that reading on the loo was very bad form. It offers no support for the rectum and can make hemmies much worse. So shit or get off the pot.

  15. St Peters is exactly where I was born - mum & dad owned a shop called 'Le Bon Bon' on Church Street which has since been converted into a normal house. They sold up and moved to Cambridgeshire when I was only about a year old, so I have no real memory of it beyond some old photos.

    Beautiful lady bug. I had to look twice.

  17. I'm glad you told me so I can set the machine to record. I'm always missing the start of my favourite shows. I can't wait! It's one of the few things Babes and I both love to watch together.

  18. I loved the British Bake Off too. They were really talented bakers, but I hope they get some new emcees as those two were obnoxious.

  19. The ladybird beetle and the fox mural are terrific.

  20. How do people come up with such great ideas?

  21. It looks like the contestants must be able to run as well as bake a cake; I'm afraid I would be disqualified right away! Okay I can run a bit, but then making a cake afterward would be out of the question.

  22. I can't stand cooking shows - we have different ones here, but they are basically all the same. I believe they are rigged from the time the first show starts.
    Enjoy your dinner out!

  23. Reading on the loo not done at all .... although if you run out of loo paper you can at least tear a page out ;-)

    I can't wait for the GBBO to start next week, I'm getting Celebrity MasterChef withdrawal pangs :-(
