I've got three of the bleeders but they're too busy sleeping / eating / fighting each other so I should be safe for now...shouldn't I?
A break from blogging for a few days because the sunny weather was too good to waste stuck indoors on a PC. Sadly, I was stuck at work instead although working from home yesterday allowed me the opportunity to use the outdoor office at times. However, my hayfever has really gone into hyperdrive despite the antihistamines.
On the work front I have an interview coming up so time to brush up on my knowledge. Fingers crossed for this one because the opportunity to work locally and reduce the time spent commuting will be just what the doctor ordered. My return to my current secondment actually has me counting down the days until it finishes, something I haven't done for many years. I'm attempting to balance days spent in the office, assessments, etc..with time spent working from home to reduce the time spent (3 hours/day) driving needlessly to the office to sit and twiddle my thumbs. As my son pointed out, 15 hours per week commuting is the equivalent of two extra working days. Apart from the actual face to face assessments and perusal of care plans / questioning staff, I can use technology to do the rest of my work: computers, mobiles, faxes when & where needed i.e at home. My biggest gripe however is that it is just not nursing hence my desire to return to a proper job where my skills, knowledge and experience can be applied.
Otherwise, my plans for the weekend include making the best use of the sunshine and some cold beer.
Currently listening to: Brian Eno.
