Mistaken Identity

So, there I was doing the usual shopping isle Olympics which included hurdling inconsiderate competitors trolleys that had been strategically left in the middle of the cold meat isle and the ever so popular 100m sprint down the bread isle to beat the shop assistants before they place their annoyingly massive cages that block your view from the particular type of pasta you love. To say I loathe the weekly food shop is an understatement, who wants to get bashed in the ankles, tutted at and glared at when I dare to spend too long looking at which Tampons I want this week. NOT ME!!!


I probably give off an air of annoyance and I am sure I scowl in complete hatred at doing this job and quite often I have even been known to say in a quite loud voice "I bloody hate this shop". So you can imagine my surprise when on this particular day I was alerted to 2 women staring at me whilst whispering and nudging each other..........................."Go on you go and ask her" said one "No, you go I cant just in case its not her" replied the other. "Its definitely her....Look she's even looking a cake stuff" whispered the first lady. I looked behind expecting to see Delia Smith but.....No....It was just me...............................What on earth were they talking about, it was definitely me they were staring at. I smiled a weak smile and sort of raised an eyebrow in a kind of "Tell me what's going on" way.

"I'm surprised you have time for shopping with all that's going on" said the now totally hyper women. "What are you baking this week"? she squealed. "Ummmmmm......"Just some fairy cakes with a variety of coloured icing on them" I said trying to sound enthusiastic. "Oh............Errrrrrrr........Right................Well I'm sure they will look as amazing as always" she said.

Then the question that confirmed they had the wrong person........"What's Paul Hollywood like, is he as gorgeous in the flesh as he is on TV"..................................It was at this moment I thought about lying just for a few seconds of fame, then curiosity got the better of me and I wondered who on earth they thought I was......................"I'm really sorry ladies, but I think you have the wrong person" I sheepishly said..........................."I bloody knew it wasn't her" said the red haired lady, "We are so sorry but we thought you was the lady from The Great British Bake Off. You look so much like her." she explained.

We stood for a while laughing at their case of mistaken identity and actually had quite a nice chat about who we wanted to win on GBBO. I couldn't wait to get home and have a proper look at my body double and hurriedly finished the shopping before going home.

So folks, here is my double apparently.......................I'm not sure but Mr DG and the kids can all see a slight resemblance.










I only wish I could bake like her as my fairy cakes were a complete disaster and only rose on one side in the oven. I thought the icing would cover up a multitude of sins only to find they looked even worse. In a state of panic I built a fairy cake tower and poured the icing all over the top......................................................................Mr DG's face was a picture when he walked in and we were holding the "Thing" whilst singing happy birthday.

I might be The 40 Year Old Domestic Goddess......................But I never said what I was a Domestic Goddess in did I??????????

    I don't watch Bake Off - as I was reading I wondering if they'd got you mixed up with Marian Keyes - black hair, sparkly eyes, baked to get over depression.
