Highlight from my week

I had aimed to get up to speed with reading your blogs and writing up posts, this year but it just hasn't happened yet! 

My highlights this week were: 

Maternity volunteering which I started on Tuesday, after a long wait! I really enjoyed it and it all felt very natural. I was shadowing a Maternity Support Worker and learning the ropes! I'm not sure how hands on I will be able to be but it's all good experience nevertheless. 

I haven't listened to an audio book for many years but as I'm getting the bus to my volunteering, I wanted something to listen to other than music. It takes just under two hours to get there. I looked on my local libraries catalogue but didn't see anything that took my fancy! I'd heard some talk of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, it's a psychological thriller. To buy the CDs was about £22 but on iTunes it was £12.95 so I downloaded it for my iPod. I'm so glad I did as I'm enjoying it so far!

Highlight from my week

My highlights from last week:

Snow. We had a little bit of snow last week! Not enough for a snowman though!

Seeing friends and their new baby. I hadn't seen my friends for a long time so it was lovely to see them and meet their baby boy. We went to TGI Fridays and this is a creation my friend made, he's a child at heart!

Highlight from my week

Hello everyone, I hope you have had a good week? 

My highlights this week were:

Birthday meal at our local Brewers Fayre, there were 13 of us. The service is a bit slow there but I did have a free meal!

Volunteer meeting. I've finally had the meeting with the Matron from Maternity! It's taken quite a while but I now have my start date - the 10th February. I will be starting on the Postnatal Ward, helping with whatever needs doing and getting some general Maternity experience.
