Most of yesterday I was asked "do you mind working all day when you could be at home?" The answer was no,
as well as it being a very important day for us at work, for me, being involved and working a long and chaotic shift was the ultimate sign of how far I've come. It might sound strange, coming from a (now) 24 year old, but although I have worked since I was 15 I have never been able to do full days and for a couple of years was right now at three hours a WEEK.
We won't talk about the actual day at work, all my predictions of chaos and hiccups came true...and then some. What amazed me was the team spirit and how we all pulled together to help each other out and make sure our patients got the care they needed and deserved. I love my work place and the people who I work with. They really went out of their way to make sure I had a special day, understanding what it meant to me.
Sorry I get so ... emotional about things like this. It's hard to explain. To put it simply, I feel loved and spoiled by everyone who took the time to wish me a good day. It was the Birthday I wasn't sure I'd see and in it's own little way it was the best.one.ever.
I woke up to this:
My Mum is far too cute for her own damn good!
Gorgeous flowers from work, as well as a mountain of cards and gift vouchers and girly things.
My main present was a new digital camera from my parents and a *mystery* of which we are yet to work out.
Other highlights included a Patrick Cox purse, although I'm not sure who sent it as there either wasn't a card, or I misplaced it...so if it was you, please say!
Trudi....who else knows me that well?
And quite simply, the most awesome hand made card ever, from my school friend Hazel!
I think I've thanked everyone personally for the cards and gifts now, but if I haven't...then THANK YOU, please don't think I'm being rude, I was somewhat brain dead by last night.
Today will be all about the chilling.
((and probably eating a bit more cake))
