Student Midwife...

Wow, the last few weeks have been immense. I started my first placement in the community two weeks ago and I have learnt so much already. Doing a 37.5 hour working week, plus studying on top of that, is hard going but very rewarding. I'm going to be so upset when I come to the end of my first placement in 2 weeks as I have loved every minute of it. My mentor has been brilliant and very encouraging, I hope I get to work with her again in the future.

There really are highs and lows and these last two weeks have been such a learning curve. I definitely know I have chosen the right career and can't wait to experience more over the next 3 years.

Introducing our grandson...

Introducing the new addition to the family... My partners son and his girlfriend have just become the proud parents of this little one. He is absolutely gorgeous and we can't stop snuggling him. 

He is the spitting image of his Daddy when he was a baby. Can't wait to get them home tomorrow then all the fun will start. My children haven't met him yet as the hospital have a no children under 12 policy, so they are eagerly awaiting his return home.
