Wednesday marked my last day of one of two six month New Graduate placements. And although my first six months saw me challenged many a time (with the odd occasion of 'Why did I choose to do nursing?'), I also learnt so much (more than 3 years of Uni could ever teach), and made some wonderful friendships. I enjoyed a lovely farewell party on my last shift and a few tears were shed.
Tomorrow I start at another small rural hospital and although I won't be as 'new' as I was when I started my last placement I'm still rather nervous at the thought of all the unfamiliar faces and new routines.
In other news our trip to Sydney on the weekend went well. The other half attended an assessment day which will hopefully mean a relocation to southern NSW come early next year; and study for him.
On the home front the veggie patch is coming along slow and steady. Spring is in the air with daffodils in full flower and the magnolia in next doors front yard about to bloom, so hopefully with the warmer weather in the air the veggie seedlings will come along quickly.
In the kitchen there's been batches of banana muffins, lassagne and homegrown stewed rhubarb- comfort food for the still icy evenings.
