OK

As I drove home from work this evening, I suddenly felt OK.  My iPod chose a song which made me do a deep breath, a long exhale, and a smile.  It was Oh Valencia by The Decemberists and it made me, dare I say, happy.

…wish people would read signs!

You probably know (by my incessant whinging) that I returned to work this week. I work in a little ‘hospital’ – it’s not really a hospital; it only has one ward, and a handful of out-patient clinics. I work in the X-ray ‘department’ (it’s just me) in a corridor shared with the Minor Injuries ‘department’… Continue reading
