I'll get straight to the point...


Yes, that's little old me up there with the goddess herself, and it would've been a nicer picture had the stupid woman not taken the picture when I wasn't looking... I HATE having my photo taken!

As I mentioned yesterday I went to the BBC Good Food Show today and I met Nigella :-D And she signed my book so Ner Ner Na Ner Ner!

It was all a bit of a blur, I was so awfully starstruck and that along with the fact that they hurry you along so quickly meant that I can hardly remember it at all. I just remember seeing her smiling at me and my brain kind of went to mush and I grinned and just about managed to say "It's lovely to meet you" before shuffling out of the signing area with my book clutched to my chest.

I had also booked a Food Icons session so I got to watch Nigella before I found out there was going to be a signing. We sat in a small theatre to watch Nigella talk, answer questions from the audience and do a demonstration of her Edible Christmas Tree Decorations.

She's even more stunning in person and I think the camera must definitely add 10lbs as she's tiny! Nigella was so lovely and warm and she was just exactly how I imagined she would be. I feel like a really lucky girl to have met the woman I admire and that has inspired me so much : )
