Mrs Bun the Baker

Oof, what a busy little bee I have been!

My boss (I am mini boss, she is big boss) is off for the next 3 and a half weeks. She's getting married. The cheek of it. I'm left running around like a headless chicken, files inexorably piling up at the end of my desk, fielding questions left, right and centre. I keep expecting everyone to realise that I'm actually not that good at my job, that I'm actually a child who's playing at being a grown up in her pencil skirts and her high heels. But apparently that's not going to happen. Apparently I'm coping rather well. Who knew.

The weekend mostly consisted of the following:

- Guitar Hero. How have I never played it before? How?! HOW?!! I love it. Lithium by Nirvana almost defeated me. Almost. I woke up yesterday morning with a claw for a hand (think Chandler from Friends playing Ms Pacman relentlessly) but I feel it's a small price to pay.

- Lovely booze. I spent yesterday in Manchester with G and M. It was sunny! There was gin! And a chicken salad (the less said about that the better. Everyone else had a burger and chips and I've never been so envious). There was also running (not by me, but by the participants in the Great Manchester Run).

- Not enough sleep. Again. Tut.

- Baking. I have discovered the perfect cookie recipe. It makes gloriously soft cookies with a slightly chewy centre. So I've been making batches of them. Super willpower woman I am though as I've only eaten a couple myself. The rest I've given to my parents and work colleagues.

What about you, my lovelies?

I think we all have this "shit, I'm going to be exposed" feeling about work from time to time. Certainly when I have blogged about it, others have been quick to tell me that they feel the same. Someone said that there's this thing called "Imposter Syndrome", I think it's on Wikipedia.

Your baking looks amazing. Come down this way and make me some!

My friend has Imposter Syndrome! She has it quite badly and lives in fear of being 'caught out'. Bless her.

The cookies look amazing, well done on not eating them all!!

I kissed a boy at the weekend. As you know. That is all I did that is worth noting.

P - I will post it! It's awesome! x

PJB - Kissing a boy is better than my weekend times 1 million x
