There is a lovely atmosphere in this country at the moment. It feels really nice to celebrate Britain being winners! The Olympics have been brilliant for reminding us how important sport is (this is coming from me, the least sportiest person you will find) and for reminding us that we have great sporting role models out there (I rather like Greg Rutherford….and he is a keen baker!)

My son has been mesmerised by the Olympics. He would happily have spent entire days flicking through the channels watching different events. (I can assure you that we didn’t let him spend entire days doing this!) He’s definitely going to miss it….until the Paralympics start!!!

(Tenuous link alert….) talking of winners, we have a competition winner to announce! Thank you for the 100’s of retweets on twitter! The response on my blog and by email was a little quieter shall we say? 😉

Drumroll please…..

The winner is:

@mcfcjuddy aka Jayne Underwood

Congratulations!! You win the Bread Dipper Gift Set courtesy of Nicola Blake from My Secret Kitchen.

There will be another competition very soon!!

In the meantime, there is a new recipe to check out: Pretzel Brownie Bites! Just 8 minutes in the oven and you have delicious gooey, chocolately, salty pretzel bites. Perfect as an energy boost after all of this excercise you have clearly been inspired to do! 🙂

I’m off to catch a bit of sun – will be back soon!
