Today, I came hurtling back down soutb, arriving with just enough time to catch the first episode of the news series of The Great British Bake-Off.
Firstly, we had to contend with the fact it was on a different channel, although we'e had plenty of advance warning of this in the meida; then there was the fact only £33% of the shows original presenters were even going to be present, which is a huge change to contend with.although I'm pleased to report there was no need to be concerned as it all worked perfectly - though I have to admit, were concerned I might fall asleep during it, what wite the epic day I've had.
I also tweeted along to tonight's programme; here's what I said:
