Wow, I'm really not good at regular blogging! Sorry, it's just that not much interesting has happened for a while. So, in an effort to try to keep you interested, here is a little ramble about a few of the most recent happenings in my life:

I had to have my occupational health appointment yesterday, nothing too traumatic. The nurse went over my health questionnaire and then took some blood to test for heb B. The results should be back in 2 weeks, hopefully my offer will turn unconditional soon after that. I went to look at a couple of student houses while I was in the area, there was one that I REALLY liked - it's lovely, but it's very popular because it's so nice so I'm not sure I'll get it. Fingers and toes crossed! (I can actually do that - hypermoblie!!)

I was really looking forward to going to watch a knee replacement today, but there aren't any on the theatre list so I'll have to wait till next week. I saw a hip replacement in February, that was pretty cool. I really like orthopaedics - but I was never any good at technology/woodwork in school so I probably wouldn't be very good at it! Add that to the fact that I'm only 5'2" and pretty weak - I wouldn't have the strength to be hammering and drilling bones for a living!

I wish I wasn't stuck in the office all day, it's such a hot sunny day - I want to be outside in the garden. I'm stuck in clinic this afternoon so I can't even escape early. Stupid work! At least I can go outside to eat my lunch, I've even brought suncream with me - its funny how sunburned I can get just by sitting outside for half an hour.

I can't believe that there are only 2 and a bit months until I leave home and start the course. It's very scary. I recently discovered the amateur transplants, it's amazing how much medical stuff there is to learn. I hope that I can cope with it. Surely I'm not the only one who listens to some of the songs and gauges their knowledge by knowing what the words mean?!

Anyway, I'd better get some work done. See you later. :-)

I know it's probably a bit late, but I just wanted to wish everyone who has exams coming up good luck. Especially those A level students with medical school offers, this is the last hurdle now before you're in.

I dont know why I needed to post that, I haven't got any exams this year. But I really do wish the best for people with offers, it must be heartbreaking to have an offer and miss out on it because of the grades.

Isn't the weather horrible today, raining and miserable. I want the sun back! Anyway, I'm off to tesco now - we've run out of cat food. See you later.
