Hi fellow bloggers...two weeks down and only four days to go! Yeehaaa!
Thank you all for your comments, especially as I haven't visited much at all for the last little while. I feel very thankful and grateful to have the good friends that I do in our lovely blogging community.
As I said above, only four days to go until my colleague gets back from her holiday in New Zealand. She's off to Europe for a month later in the year, but I'll worry about that then!
I wasn't really looking forward to coping with the amount of work on my own, but surprisingly I've managed to keep up-to-date with it. This week will be a breeze because one of the surgeons is doing his three monthly clinic in the Outback and, as he is very prolific, it'll give me a bit of breathing space.
However, having said that, another surgeon had done her clinic at Roma Hospital the other week, and that lot was emailed through to me a few days ago. Still, it's only about an hour-and-a-half of work at the most and this week I hope to get around to that.
The only thing about this working full time is that I haven't had my weekly visit from Cooper and his mum. In fact, I've felt really out of touch what with being away all day and my youngest daughter working full time as well...now I know why I gave up working five days a week, it interfered with my life.
I enjoy the two days I do in the city but I love the work I do from home even more. It's far more varied because it covers a range of specialties and I don't have to get ready to go anywhere. I just fall out of bed, stagger out into the kitchen half asleep and put the kettle on for my first cup of coffee. Then it's into the shower to wake up properly, turn the computer on and while it's waking up I make my plunger of coffee and feed Oscar. By the time I've done that, the computer has woken up and I can then start work. No signing time sheets, no catching trains, no battling the hordes in the subway in the city...absolute bliss.
Anyway, I've spent the last three hours catching up on everyone's posts and leaving my calling card...so to speak. I just feel that I've missed so much by not being home. It goes to show how addicted I've become to blogging. I hadn't realised it was such a big part of my day until I couldn't do anything...I was too tired in the evenings and couldn't concentrate anyway.
So, dear friends, it won't be long before all will be back to normal...whatever that is. Have a good weekend and don't forget me, please!
