WAKE UP CALL

Right, time for a little catch up with life.

I only have time to write this today because I am now isolating, pending a result from a PCR Covid test.
I finally got caught out. No-ones fault. Just a simple catch up with friends on Saturday who then had positive lateral flows on Sunday morning. They did the responsible thing and got PCR tests and informed me.
I did a lateral flow myself this morning and headed into work and while I was getting changed I received a message to say that their PCR’s were positive.
Work policy meant that I had to come home and get a PCR test myself and then isolate until I get the result.
I will then have to do daily lateral flow tests for the next 10 days.
I’m not expecting a positive result, but rules are rules, and as the last couple of days have proven, Covid is still very much out there and sneaking in wherever it can.
Thankfully, tomorrow is a teams training day, so if I haven’t got my result back, I’m not missing out.

Anyway, my little Grandson JJ is doing really well. He’s absolutely gorgeous and Murron has taken to being a mum like a duck to water. I’ve been really impressed with her over the last few weeks.

Marjorie and Dharma are both plodding along with work and University.
Marjorie is looking to spread her wings a bit but is in no rush to make any changes.

Ian has been, and continues to be a bit of a worry.
He has been suffering over the last few weeks with excessive pain in his shoulders, hands and feet.
He has been continuously going to the Dr and trying to get appointments with pain clinic and MSK.
He suffers from Psoriatic Arthritis and Carpel tunnel and has had to have a few surgeries over the last few years and was worried that something else was going wrong and that he would need more surgery.
Then he developed numbness in his hands and feet and after managing to get an appointment with one of the better Dr’s at our practice, he was sent for some emergency blood tests.

Today we found out that he has Diabetes. That has been a bit of a wake up call.
He has a follow up on Wednesday when we should find out more information, but what it will most definitely mean is a HUGE change in his diet and exercise regime. Probably mine too!

I am heading for another big change myself.
I blogged a little while ago that I have received an e-mail telling me about a job and that I was intrigued enough to actually apply for it.
I got the job!
On Friday, I officially handed my notice in at work and every time I think about it I feel physically sick!
I am both extremely excited and exceptionally scared about the prospect of this new position.

The last couple of years has seen an exponential increase in eating disorders at work and this was something that sparked a bit of an interest for me.
So when this Job advert was popped under my nose for a ‘Community Eating Disorders Intensive Home Treatment Mental Health Support Worker’, I couldn’t resist. I will be part of a brand new team. It’s so new, we don’t even have a base of operations yet!
I have an awful lot of learning to do before I can actually go out and visit patients though.
So, lots of changes ahead. some good, some bad, all scary.

Oh yes!!
I finally got to see ‘The Last Duel’ at the weekend.
It’s bloody brilliant and Adam is fantastic as always. He absolutely needs to do more costume drama because the look suits him. Now I have to wait until the end of November for ‘House of Gucci’
