#SoCS Tail or Tale

#SoCS Tail or Tale

This week Linda has given us, tail or tale for our Stream of Consciousness posts, which can be used any way we choose; we can use one or both.

I have been chasing my tail all this week, which means that my poor blog has suffered as a result. Unfortunately, due to me catching the dreaded lurgi and taking 3 days off work and cancelling some clinics that I was going to attend as well means that I have got a lot of hours to make up!  We have to do a certain amount of hours in practice as well as at Uni. I have only got another 3 weeks left in placement so am fitting in an extra 12 hour shift a week to get it done as I have a voluntary placement the week after (voluntary in the sense that we get to choose where we go, not choose if we want to do it)!!!

When I was younger, it would not have bothered me, as I have always given 100% effort at work, no matter how physical the job, and have worked any more hours than I do now. However, due to me being more of a bedraggled old hen as opposed to a spring chicken, it is making me rather tired and it is not long after I get home that I flop into bed! I am not complaining, but just feel sad that I can’t do all the things that I want to do as I can’t squeeze it all in!

Still, I have the weekend off and a couple of days for my birthday next week, so I will get time to recharge, and I might even get chance to read a do a bit of blogging and catching up. I will be getting two weeks off near the end of March as well which I am looking forward to, then April is the start of my second-year of Uni. My goodness, how the time has flown! Just one more result to come in, I passed the others that I was waiting for, so fingers crossed, it is just the one resubmission I have to do.  Still, I got this far so hopefully will pass that and go on to tell the tale!

  1. I was just about to email you but you have explained all! I was wondering where you were, were you okay! So I was glad to see that you are back. You have done so well Judy and it amazing that your first year is nearly done! I hope you have beaten the lergie! Be well and have a good weekend ! You can do it Nurse 💜💜💜💜

    1. Thank you so much Sis. I ended up sleeping most of yesterday and re-writing an essay this morning, I will be about on and off this week but hopefully will be back to normal after 5th March! 🙂 💖💖💖

  2. Oh, sis, I hear you! I am not willing to bother myself anymore to squeeze all possible things in. Perhaps I could but I don’t want to stress myself out and feel better to make more time for fewer things. Have a great recovery time before the big party, sis 😊🎉

  3. Goodness. I’d been off most of the week myself, although busy, I’ve been well for the most part. I sure hope things settle down for you. Make the most of Sunday, hm?

    1. I have had to just take a bit of time out from blogging (reluctantly) as I am now catching up with hours on placement I missed due to catching the flu! I hope you manage to keep those plates spinning too, Robbie! 🙂

Thank you for popping in, I'd love to hear your thoughts
