Well, I was going to start work on August 14, but I ended up caving in to the guilt and working on Sunday night (after being rung 4 times in the previous week to "please work, even though you're not supposed to be on, because we're desperate") Louise also rang to give me some work for the week on my old ward, so I've worked Sunday (13th) night, Tuesday morning, Thursday night, Saturday morning, Sunday afternoon and this morning. All on my old oncology ward!
In fact, I could probably have the rest of this week off!
I was a bit nervous that I would have forgotten everything, until someone asked a question in the first handover, and the answer popped straight into my head from nowhere! Now I almost feel as though I never left, except that I now remember why I love nursing so much. From now on I hope to do at least a few days a week, even when (if) I have kids. It's a very satisfying job!
Now I'm off to party with my little nephew Ezra, who turns one today!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EZZIE!
Speaking of nephew's, my SIL Seona sent me a picture of Timothy wearing the little aran jumper I spent countless hours knitting! Cute, eh?
