How nice!

I changed job last year, Best move I've evr made. A couple of weeks in I went home and told dh about the nice thing somebody had said and I realised that it was years since I'd had that sort of positive feedback in my old job. )And that wasn't because I was bad at it!)

am so pleased for you- that is very rewarding after all your efforts. The honeymoon period does wear off so be prepared for some down days but just get your other half to remind you how you raved about it at the start

Oh yes, I have just spoke to my best friend (A nurse also, but qualified for ages) and we both agreed that this time next week Ill probably be crying over something.

Just relieved that the staff are nice, my manager is 'human' and the service users are welcoming and seem to like me.

It also feels good to see all those years of studying have proven worthwhile, I feel so good and proud of myself.

it is good to see someone taking the time to tell themselves well done- we are always so quick to beat ourselves up over failure

tiredemma- are you less tired now? Still loving it?

Gallery, honestly im so tired.

I think its because im having to 'think' more. Im double checking everything that I do.

Its very demanding, challenging- but yes I still love it. The day flies by as its so busy.

thank you for asking smile
