I have some new friends, they shout my name when they see my cycling down the road and run to my door to tell me about their day, and what cake they want me to bake. I am known as the Indian pretty girl who has a cameraman in her house.
These new friends of mine are aged between 7-13 and they think I am an actress.
As the new kid on the block, I baked chocolate orange biscuits for them.
