Where have I been?

December 21, 2016

Hello lovelies,

So anyone who regularly visits my blog will know I have posted anything in well over a month. I'm afraid I have just been so busy with other commitments. I haven't even had the time to schedule posts, which is very unusual!

So, what have I been up to? Well for the past 10 weeks I have been on placement. I am a second year children's nursing student and my most recent placement has been Health Visiting. All the travelling has been exhausting and some of the families that I met needed so much support it was both physically and emotionally draining. Having said that, I wouldn't have changed it for the world! This placement has opened up my eyes, I never knew how lucky I was. I have met women who have been victims of human trafficking, rape and abuse who are some of the bravest women I have had the pleasure to know.

I've also been going to university one day a week, as if placement wasn't enough! I've finally completed my ethics and health promotion modules and I now have two assignments to write over Christmas! There's no rest for the wicked! Since I last updated you all I have put a deposit down on a flat which I will move into on the 1st July, it's gorgeous and I'm so excited to have my own place!

Now I'm on a five week break where I will be enjoying time with family, writing assignments and hopefully picking up from where I left off with my blog. I have missed writing but it has just not been possible. Hopefully now placement is finished I will have the time to write content and enjoy my blog once again!
