Spring

Yes, I Am Alive ... And I have Photos To Prove It!!

Well, I should be at the gym, or at work ... but have the day off instead. As I said in my icon post I have been doing extra shifts at work, which is good for the bank balance, but I have been struggling with the exhaustion. Marvelously I have been able to keep going at work, so haven't had to leave early, but then ended up falling asleep in my chair soon after 7pm. So, I didn't plan to work, and then decided to cancel the gym ... and get some housework done, but at a leisurely pace. (In other words, other than putting some washing on the line, I haven't started any!!)

Work has been good, in that I am now doing a day a week as a secretary ... no audio typing needed, but setting up clinics, and tracking absent patients etc.  So I am now doing 3 mornings as a nurse, 2 - 3 afternoons as an Admin Clerk, and 1 day as a Secretary ... Imagine having to fill in my occupation on a form now!  But, I am enjoying the challenge.

In my free spare moments I am having to look for a new doggy sitter for Jiffy, as Moira has bought a humumngous rescue dog, who didn't even want Jiffy to visit.  She said we should persevere, but with the size and attitude of the dog, I declined.  In actual fact I would prefer to cancel my holiday than let Jiffy stay there.

Anyway, last week was half term, so I didn't "gym", but went Wednesday afternoon with Christine to Greenway House in South Devon ... the home of Agatha Christie.  I will admit I am not a fan of "whodunnits", but was fascinated to learn more of her life ... and was amazed to learn that she met her second husband (Sir Max Mallowan) in Ur, on an archeology trip in 1930.  The other lovely thing about the trip is that the spring flowers looked truly stunning
