A very original title...I'm rubbish with titles.

James and I enjoyed our wee holiday :) He enjoyed it so much that he didn't want to leave. James in his element = chopping wood all day for the fire and going long, extremely taxing walks which left me knackered and wanting to cry lol. On the plus side, I felt a bit fitter when I got home than when I left. There's  not really a lot to say about the holiday other than it was quiet, partly relaxing, partly knackering, pretty and different :) We spent a day on Bute which was nice and Rothesay is a pretty town. Fudge (the dog) really enjoyed herself too, she loved the walks! She was extremely well behaved and thought she was the queen for sleeping on the couch every night...sneeky. I don't have any pics at the moment as they're on my dads computer but when I get them I shall post a few.

I'm feeling now that I would really like a Monday - Friday job. Working til 10.15pm is not good for anybody, it's far too tiring, and then coming home and not sleeping properly just makes the next day workikng til 10.15pm even harder! I would've done anything to get home at 7pm last night lol. I'm also not keen on the fact that I'm working this whole weekend while James is off and 1 of my best friends, Leeanna, is going to South Korea for a year on Monday and I will only see her briefly on Saturday night as I'm working at 7.15am on Saturday and Sunday mornings! gutted. Normally I would sense a cancellation of a shift so that we could go out properly, but I have no money from being in hospital and if I cancel then I will have even less money next month! GAH!

My chest is feeling a lot better. I think, even though in terms of spirometry figures there wasn't much change, that the change in how my chest felt had been so gradual that I hardly noticed until the pain started. I find my left lung is still more productive than the right and it still looks pretty infected but who knows. That could just be the staph making it look that way. I suppose I'll find out when I'm next putting a sample in.

Hope everyone is keeping as well as can be :) x


  1. yeah, regular work hours would probably make a huge difference!! I hated doing shift work and it definitely knocked me off health wise. I completely forgot to ask more about mental health HCA - do you still want me to ask about this? Jac x

  2. hey Jac, that'd be great if you could find out more, don't worry though if you don't manage :) x
