Belinda Jeffrey does bake cakes.

The fist day I started my BBB job, I went into Coaldrake’s and introduced myself to the girls at the counter. They apologiesed for not having me in sooner to do a signing.

That’s alright, I replied, I
haven’t got my book out yet.

They were, of course, confusing me with Belinda Jeffreys the cook, former host of Better Homes and Gardens.

This was not to be the last time.

When I got off the Q150 train in Cloncurry – where there was, finally, espresso, a woman came up to me and said,

I couldn’t work out why they were sending that Mix and Bake lady. I’m glad they sent you.

And apparantly someone called a bookstore asking about the fiction book that the Mix and Bake lady has written.

But, alas, I am not her, and she is not me. I am also not the clairol colour stylist either. But I do make a mean chocolate cake and colour my hair. And I am open to hosting anything on television so long as it doesn’t involve sport. And if my publicist gets a call asking whether Miss Mix and Bake would like to do Dancing With The Stars, she will say ‘yes’ and we can explain the mix up after I win.

Not me
