Weekly Summary #5 - It's my birthday!

August 21, 2016

Hello lovelies,

Popping in to say hello and fill you in on my past week. I haven't been posting much because I've been far too busy with placement and work. I've now handed my last piece of work in, hoe exciting. All I have to do is hand my placement documents in and I will have officially finished first year.

So yesterday I finished placement. It's been a whirlwind I can't believe some of the things I witnessed when I was on the ward but I had an amazing mentor and the staff were lovely and helped me through it all. I've achieved so much, I have had all of my skills signed off and as soon as I hand my documents in on Tuesday I will have officially finished my first year of children's nursing. I've been kicked, punched and shouted at by children but it's all worth it.

Earlier in the week I went to the hairdressers and I decided to cut off most of my hair. I thought it would be nice for when I go abroad I wouldn't have so much hair to untangle once I have been swimming. So far I'm loving my short hair, you can see it above and on my 'about me' to the right hand side of my blog.

Today is my 19th BIRTHDAY! I'm now home for 4 weeks and it was lovely being home for my birthday even if I haven't done a lot. I've been for a meal with my family and now I'm in my comfy pjs watching TV and reading a couple of blog posts. I've received lots of money which I'm thankful for and I can't wait for next weekend when my boyfriend comes with all my presents. I'm so excited to see him.

Thank you for reading, next week I will be popping back to uni to hand my work in and get rid of my responsibilities for a while. I also feel a huge shopping spree coming on with my birthday money so get ready for a couple of reviews soon!
