Easy baking ideas for the Great British Bake Off final *

Tonight is the Great British Bake Off final and I can’t wait! Who are you thinking will win this year? I’m rooting for Rahul because he is just adorable and apart from a couple of off weeks has been brilliant throughout.

I want a room that can be useful for lots of different things. Somewhere to relax, somewhere to work and somewhere a guest can sleep. Today I am sharing my journey on transforming a spare bedroom into a multi functional room.
