It has been a funny old week. I've felt a bit all over the place with returning from holiday and going straight into some very heavy training for 2 days on Monday. Before I get ahead of myself though can I just say how good it was to be back from holiday into our own beds, my god we all slept so much better than while we were away, it was bliss. However I do feel that I have the holiday blues, the week seemed to go so quickly and a week away is just never enough is it. Anyway, on with the week......
So on Monday and Tuesday I had 2 training days for childhood immunisations and vaccinations. Step forward a 90+ page workbook and additional training material to get my teeth into. I can't tell you how much is involved with baby imms, it was one of the most intense and packed courses I've been on. I'm a fully trained nurse but the continuing professional development (cpd) we are required to do regardless of our chosen field can be very time consuming and mind boggling to say the least! We definitely all left scratching our heads a bit and wondering where the wine was.....
As I was training on my usual day off I then had Wednesday and Thursday off (phew!). On Wednesday Alfie had a pirate dress up day at school, I have to admit it slightly put the fear of god into me, I knew that these days were inevitable but not quite so soon.......luckily we had a pirate dressing up outfit to hand so we used that and he loved it! The class looked ace and by the sounds of it the day was very successful and they had tons of fun outside doing treasure hunts, singing sea shanties and acting like pirates all day hehe.
Thursday I had tons of cuddles and silly time with Elarna, she was in such a crazy mood. She's developed this hilarious new game of pulling faces and one involves a rather funny gurning face, I'm yet to catch it on camera but it makes me laugh so much, she looks ridiculous.
I'm still to decide on my masters, it's really chewing me up, it feels like such a huge decision but would be good for my career - I fear about taking on too much at this point in my life however? Still time to have a think though, at the moment my mind is a jumble.
Today (Friday) I am back at work, currently I'm on countdown to leaving this job before I head off to another surgery closer to home. I'm very sad to be leaving my team but know in my heart that I am making the right decision.......I think. This evening we are off to a wine tasting, it's one we try to go to every year and I'm looking forward to it, should be a lovely evening!
So this has been my week, how has yours been?
