    I've been ALL THE WAY TO WORK to take in some home-made cakes and biscuits for my birthday last Friday (OOPS but who GIVES A FUCK) and ALL THE WAY BACK HOME because I'm not sitting there listening to the FUCKING BAKE-OFF JUDGES who've never baked a cake in their fucking LIVES judging my efforts out of ten. In the words of the great DIANE ABBOTT they can GO FUCK THEMSELVES.

    Anyway MORNING :)

    #HOTCAKECHAT INCOMING

    I baked a cake yesterday! A Christmas Cake. It was supposed to take 4 hours. After 6 I went to bed. I woke up for a wee at 7 and a half hours and got it out of the oven. It's still a bit too MOIST and I'll need to cut the top off before I ice it but I think it's not a bad job.

    I'm also not working this morning, as I'm working this afternoon instead. It's entirely throwing me off and I keep going to log in to my work email or feeling guilty that I'm "bunking off" whilst working at home, when I'm ACTUALLY ALLOWED.

    I still get that feeling sometimes despite having been my own boss for nearly 8 fucking years. I had a quiet few days and really didn't need to do much but kept thinking I should be refreshing my email or something before reminding myself that drinking tea in your pants at 11:30 is the whole point of not sitting in an office for no reason.

    Nobody has dared complain (to my FACE at least) that I've only been appearing in the office on TUESDAYS and WEDNESDAYS since we went back to our original office. NO MORE DROOPY DRAWERS FOR ME!

    The team DIVOT is in the huff with me because I didn't make yesterday's fuck-up (hers, of course) magically disappear. Fine by me, nip someone else's tits.

    That photo is my fantasy of me and Mr L sitting watching TV right now.

    Unfortunately this is more the reality
