It's Good News Week.....

Hi Bloggers!

Another week has gone past, so I'll keep it as short as possible: point form will do.
  • Saturday; Football, work in the evening. Work were so desperate that they called the local hospital and organised a car for me to borrow as I had no car to get to work....
  • Sunday; Newie to see barely-hobbling Mother in Law. The difference between private health care provision and care in the public hospital? Hydro-therapy mornings, physiotherapy afternoon, calcium and vitamin/mineral supplements as part of the daily menu in the private hospital. The public hospital provides a physio for 15-20minutes every second day, at least.... supplements are only available on prescription. Damn those budget constraints.... Sharon died.
  • Monday; home. Unpacking, sorting. Worked on essays due when I go back to TAFE. Nothing like a little performance under pressure....
  • Tuesday; Work, football training, shopping. Dinner, unpacking, essays.
  • Wednesday; Work, Sharon's funeral. It was a huge gathering; the church was overflowing, and it was freezing. As I said to Shane outside afterwards: I think that your wifey took all of the warmth with her... Food and drinks at the Workers Club afterwards. The boys came to the service, but not the club. Their comment: It was very different to Nan's funeral.. quite religious... It must be hard for them to grasp all the religious rituals: we have been very remiss in their religious education..... And a bit confusing that their heathen parents know the words to the hymns and prayers... rote learning works well, eh...
  • Thursday; See Tuesday. Finished 2 essays. One more to do. And a medications assessment.
  • Friday; Work. Dinner with friends across the road. I love going there. Gay is a fab cook, and the company is just fine.
  • Saturday; Footie at Toronto West. We lost. Last game for the year. HOORAY!!! I found out that there will be an appointment for 4 of our players & 5 of the Raymond terrace players with the junior Rugby League judiciary as a result of the mellee from the previous weekend when Nick's eye socket was fractured... in 3 places.... Nicks' parents and our club brought the event to the attention of the junior NRL: The referree never even reported the fight.... My lovely brother bought GG out for us... Thanks Bro.... Saturday night in front of the TV, and sorting and unpacking... old photos and kids artwork, cards, old schoolbooks... such wonderful time wasters: and it's heartbreaking to throw stuff out... but I have been STRONG... I LOVE that movie "Shawn of the Dead.." heheheheheh
  • Sunday; G'day! Freezing, freezing, freezing......... Washing, essay, tidying, yadda, essay, yadda, yadda, try to stay away from blogger, Myspace and Facebook....
Here's something amazing......

I FINISH MY CLINICAL PLACEMENT THIS FRIDAY, AND RETURN TO TAFE IN BELMONT!!

HELP!!!!

There is hardly anything filled out in my clinical skills book.. It's not that I'm not skilled, mind you, but it's just been too busy for the poor nurses to sign anything off....... They have enough paperwork to do, believe me.

OOHHH... has anybody else seen "The Men on a Mission" calendar?? Those gorgeous young Mormon men... it's enough to make me consider looking at my religion........ The poor guys are under threat of ex-communication... all they are doing is putting their church out there, and promoting tolerance and acceptance...... The photographer has already been ex-communicated. These guys ahve all spent a lot of their time as missionaries in 3rd world countries, for pete's sake.... Actually, you can buy the calender through Calender Club.........

Time to get on with it. The young-un's are starting to rouse...... there goes my computer time....

Have nice day!
