Photo an Hour: 5th April, 2017

 

For the entirety of the first week of April we had the pleasure of living on a canal boat (!) with some of our favourite folks. It was exactly what the doctor ordered after the manic first few months of 2017 – there’s nothing quite like relaxing on the roof of a canal boat, reading a book and listening to the birds twitter in the trees and the sway of the water as you glide along…

March #brilliantphotoaday

 
Hello lovelies! In a watch-me-forever-play-catch-up-with-myself charade, here are my photos from Kate Gabrielle’s #brilliantphotoaday for March. Whoop! I’m definitely struggling with April (my ability to take a photo on the day of the theme has gone completely out of the window since being on the canal boat!) but I’m also still really enjoying it.

 

To see photos from the other lovely folks doing the project, visit Instagram and search for #brilliantphotoaday. They’re well-worth a look if you’re so inclined!

Photo an Hour: 25th March, 2017

 

As promised yesterday, here is my photo an hour post from March! It was a beautiful, sunny day spent being extremely indulgent… Jack’s folks came to visit us in the afternoon, and then later in the evening his sister Suki joined us too. The five of us went out for a delicious meal in the evening, after having spent a few hours sampling wine and cocktails beforehand! Here come the photos…

Back to normality

 

Hello and greetings from Westcliff! We returned from our holiday on Saturday, both glad to come home and sad to leave our lovely canal boat. We had a lovely time, but now we’re back there’s a lot to get done. I spent some time whilst on holiday revising for my up-and-coming OSCE exams, but now the revision needs to start in earnest! I’m working my way through a mountain of washing, as well as trying to give the flat a spring clean. The usual culprits of Getty submissions, NIPE revision and being back on placement this week means that everything is gearing up to getting crazy once more… But that’s just how life is right now!

 

I’m hoping to post my photo an hour posts for March and April this week, as well as my submissions for #brilliantphotoaday for March. I’m also planning on writing some more midwifery/student midwife content soon, but we’ll see how that pans out with everything else I have on my plate right now..!

 

As always, check out my Flickr or Instagram for daily photos and life snippets. Take care, folks!

Photo an Hour: 25th February, 2017

 

I’ve finally managed to edit and upload my photos from my last day of a photo an hour! It was a day spent in London with Jack, Laurence and Luke – that in itself should tell you it was awesome, but add to that going to a few of my favourite places (you guys, The Whistling Shop is just wonderful!) meant it was an even more fabulous day. Yay! Carry on scrolling for the photos…

Essays, babies, pajamas.

 

A miniature update on current life: I’m struggling my way through the same essay, still (3000/3500 as of a few hours ago); I’ve had my twelfth delivery (and believe me when I say that, that baby was one of the most adorable!) and I’ve spent a lot of time in bed trying to recover from my last stint on placement. I’m tired and I feel completely drained right now, so I’m looking forward to finishing off this essay and resuming normal programming at some point… Until then, check out Flickr, which is probably the most up-to-date, accessible part of my life right now. Take care folks!

February #brilliantphotoaday

 

As promised yesterday, here are my photos from Kate Gabrielle’s #brilliantphotoaday for February. Right at the end of the month, I broke off a couple of themes from my other daily photo project because hey, what’s one more photo a day when you’re already doing two?!

Pancakes and radio silence.

 

Good afternoon, friends! I’m dropping in to excuse myself from the radio silence these past few days; last week was busy, tiring, a bundle of sad emotions and basically, a bit of a struggle.

Postnatal Ward

 

It’s night-time as we crowd into the handover room,
The day staff look weary but they smile as they discuss their day.
A5, B3, C6 and side rooms 1-4; we scribble on our sheets of paper,
Rhesus negative, AF, BF, 3°, EBL, OBs due at 1215, 0200, 0430.

Right now.

 

Thinking of:
Going on holiday! But, really..? how I should be doing so many things right now. I have the biggest pile of university work to get done, which I’m slowly, slowly, slowly working my way through. I’d like some extra time!

Wearing:
My new black and white polka dot dress, with a pair of thermal long johns borrowed from Laurence years ago. When I popped to shops earlier I wore my black & purple DMs, but now I’m all about my slippers…
