It is pretty amazing having a colleague who loves to bake though.

I can't help but hold her responsible for this.

Terrible for the waistline though!

I'm that person at work who always brings in the baked goods! Although I didn't put baking on my application form. I went with my other huge passion - history, particularly of the monarchy. :)

cake (and other sweet things in general) makes the world go round! a slice of cake and a cuppa tea have got to be evidence-based stress interventions surely?

This is really off topic, but might be useful to somebody:
After being a crazy chocoholic for quite some time my family doctor pointed out that I might be needing some more magnesium in my diet. It turned out to be true, but it seems that magnesium really helps with stressful times, even if one isn't necessarily deficient in the mineral.

You can get magnesium through diet - chocolate can be a good source :D , or other more healthy food options.
Also, you can get some magnesium through Epsom salt baths - this is pretty amazing, since it doesn't require any extra calories or supplements, and the bath itself can be quite relaxing.

I can't believe I'm offering alternative advice to cake, but there you go :mrgreen:

Would an interests list of computer games and cats be frowned upon? Cause it would be the truth! Haha

No, because it just sounds real and authentic. You need a mix of people in a training cohort.
