The Week That Was..


Eagle eyed readers may have noticed a severe lack of posting on this little corner lately. Super eagle eyed readers will be aware that this decline in activity matches rather nicely to the beginning of the new job. Now my working days are over 12 hours long, and my number of working days are 6 a week. Meaning I only have one beautiful Sunday in which to chillax and blog. Super sad face. 
So what's been up this week? Take a gander if you dare. 

  • Become a bit of a lad. Being the only female in an office full of them means I have sadly begun sinking to their level. In with the banter and girl rating, out with the tea drinking and talking shopping.
  • Become a machine. On a recent staff night; "You're like a machine. You work like a maniac in the office all day and now look, you've even had time to put on some Mascara. Amazing!'. I'll take that. 
  • Become more bad cop. I realised that I am a bit of a good cop so this week I became bad cop. And I enjoyed it... and a lot more things went my way!
  • Trapped my finger. In a door of all things. Things went slow motion as I desperately tried to rescue it. No lasting damage other than a lovely under nail bruise. #stillhavefingernail. Thank God! 
  • Baked some cakes. Still have time for cake. I always have time for cake. 
What have your weeks looked like?

  1. Nom nom nom at those cupcakes!! New jobs can be quite exciting at first and most of my previous jobs have been working with mainly guys, I think I prefer it. They can be a lot easier to get along with and I secretly like being one of the guys :)
    Glad to see you back!!

  2. Those cupcakes are amazing. My last job was full of women, oh my word, so catty and bitchy then in a confined workplace together. It was awful at times. Sounds like works keeping you super super busy though!

  4. I know what you mean about becoming one of the lads - I was one of only 20 girls in sixth form at a Boys School and definitely felt like I become more tomboy like! I ended up going to prom with 6 guys (including my boyfriend!) as they were my closest friends so it felt right to all go together! x

  5. Are they the cakes??? You really ARE a machine!
    Are you enjoying the boy heavy office? More bitchy or less?
    And you should have another cupcake to celebrate still having a nail!

    1. They are (or were!) the cakes! :) Definitely less bitchy, all they talk about are fit girls! hehe x

  6. Men are definitely less bitchy than women, when it comes to the workplace! Ouch to your finger, though! I did similar to my big toe a few months ago and it took a solid 6 weeks for the bruising/trapped blood to disappear.
