General diary entries


It’s been 10 days since my last post.

10 days patiently waiting for Ian’s operation and hoping it won’t be cancelled again.
6 days left!!…..So far, so good.

10 days of finally getting my NMC pin number and working ‘officially’ as a Nurse Associate. It has been a little daunting. It has been extremely busy and I’m still on a steep learning curve and in at the deep end.

10 days of trying to get on top of things in the house and in the garden.
So far, the garden is winning. I’m just not feeling it!

10 days of saying ‘fuck it’ to the diet.
Life’s too short.

Followed by 10 days of saying ‘fuck it’, only 5 months until my 50th and I promised myself I would be slimmer and fitter!!

So! It’s a day off today.
The house is quiet as Dharma and Marjorie are house sitting for Mum and Dad for a few days. Ian is working upstairs and Murron is keeping herself to herself and will be off out shortly anyway.

The house is tidy. The garden is calling…… but not loud enough yet.
I’m debating getting my sketchbooks out. I keep toying with the idea and half heartedly doing some drawing before giving up.
I also have a book I want to start reading. ‘Mama’s Boy’ by Dustin Lance Black. The only problem with that is that it takes me forever to pick up a book in the first place, and then I’m a really slow reader, so it may be one that waits until I’m on annual leave with time to waste.

Not long to wait. I have two weeks of annual leave planned for the end of June. I’m going away with my eldest daughter for 4 of those days to London. We’ll be seeing P!nk in concert while we’re there. I’m just hoping the weather is good and we can do lots of wandering, drinking, eating and people watching. Actually really looking forward to it.

I have 2 x 12.5 hour shifts ahead of me before a weekend off.
I really should spend at least one day at the weekend tackling the gardens.

Today then……. will be spent with my movies and my computer.
Decision made.
