Flat out like a lizzard drinkin' in the Sun!

Few and far between are my posts here..but never the less... my days are jam packed with things that have kept me busy. I have worked... a few mornings, I am too tired to count them right now.
I worked on the Open Heart Surgery Ward a few times (Cardiothoracics)..... on the Renal Ward (Renal Transplants and Dialysis), Diabetic Foot Unit and Endocrinology Units...and also on the Colorectal/Hepatobiliary Units. The people I have worked with have been exceptional team players. This earlier-than-usual heatwave Melbourne has been experiencing has not been missed by us in the hospital. Visitors bring in the heat, it radiates from their bodies. Today I was ferrying water to visitors for fears they would otherwise collapse. When I got home from work I had a bit of a headache, I was drinking water..maybe not enough?
Tomorrow is my last morning, and then I will have 5 days off. I cannot wait. I get to spend time with my hubby and kids. Yippee!!!
I have added in some pictures from a party I took the girls to ths Saturday gone. It was an awesome old style party. In a hall, with fairy lights, music and good old fashioned dancing. We all had such a great time too!

Mia at the school fete last Friday.

Lovely party Cazzie, what fun! The old fashioned parties are the best I reckon.

Hot here too, and what would we do without nurses to help us through it?

I remember those busy days of working with patients and trying to raise a family. I'm glad to be able to laze around now and enjoy a quieter life.

Jayne said...

Looks like a lovely party :)
Think you've earned your days off!

WOW - you are one talented lady Cazzie! I'm glad you've had a little time to enjoy the weather...though I must admit that I'm a little jealous now that our days are much shorter and we are starting to have to scrape our car windows in the morning. :-)

Cute pics...that heatwave is not passing us by either. We have had a few hot days. One day was 40 after having a couple of really cold days it was weird.

Andrew, I forget that I am versatile until I have to answer the phone at work and think of what area I am working on at the time. Yesterday I answered the phone with "Good morning, Neurology, oops, I mean Neurosurgery Carolyn speaking". I do it all the time :)

Foxy, the old parties sure are fun. 35 degrees here currently.

Mom, yup, lazing around is what I had planned to do today, but I have not done that yet, lol.

Jayne, thanks I am happy to be on days off :)

Coffee, our scraping of the car windows will happen when you have surf and sun..haha funny world we live in :)

Friggin, I am trying to get onto your blog without success today, will try again soon :)

A Slice, happy girls are fun girls :)
