The scones were unreal, and I finished baking them around 10pm yesterday, because when it comes to baking, ridiculously late is how I roll.

The reason I made them was in order to celebrate my partner finally getting a job offer after about a year of searching--he started this week and things seem to be going well, so the very least I could do was bake up a treat! It's definitely a weight off of the both of our minds that he's out of that job roadblock, and now we can do adulty things like put money into savings accounts, and plan for the future. Such forbearance. Much adult.

Ahem.

On the subject of jobs, I got to spend the better half of this week getting paid to write and edit, which I always enjoy. The writing was for a manual (so, a little dry), but it was writing nonetheless, and my manager seemed pretty happy with the end result. On the flip side, having spent several days this week writing how-tos has left me feeling pretty drained by the time I get home. My next chapter of FS is almost done (and what isn't has been plotted out), so all I really need is to sit down properly and finish it up. Any day now. Maybe even this evening, once I get this post out of the way.

Besides, for the first time in I-don't-even-know-how-many-weeks, I have no plans for the weekend. None. Not a one. That's not to say I won't end up accepting an invitation to go somewhere board game cafe, but at the moment, no plans. Except stay home and write.

I'm glad you finally got your scones, and that they were delicious!
Congratulations to your partner :)

Writing and editing for work is the best! I get to do that too :) Though I still wish I could get paid to write fanfic... oh well ;)

I hope your chapter is going well (I am waiting impatiently).

I have a very writing-friendly job, but I'll save the specifics for private :) "office monkey" and "keyboard bashing" are still in the job description, however, lol.

The next! You can do it! *cheers*
