Your Platform.

With everything that has gone on lately I just do not feel like blogging, which is a shame. As like I said in my last post there is so much I want to blog about! For those who have asked, Simon is doing better and his family are just taking it as it comes. They have their good and bad days as expected. Thank you for your lovely thoughts and words he's received.

I thought the other day I have not done a question and answer post in a couple of years. In fact looking back it was May 2009 I did my last one! And since then my life has certainly changed!

So the platform is there a question you'd like to ask me? Anything else you want to know about me. I'll be honest and wont bite :). I'll answer them next week.

A sunset I watched on holiday last week.

Have a great weekend everyone.

The Best and Worst of times.

I have just returned from my holiday to Menorca in Spain with some friends. I had a good time but it has meant blogging has had to take a step back.

It has not been the easiest of weeks at all and if I could fast forward to next year right now I probably would. There's so much I have wanted to blog about - like the Olympics finishing, the paralymics starting, my holiday to Spain etc.

I do not want to say too much on here because it's the internet and it's still a public forum. But for Simon and his family it has been, what I can only describe, as a shocking/upsetting/angry few weeks.    If you ask Simon who his best friend is he would say his Dad - hands down. They do so much together!!! Sadly, a week and half ago his Dad walked out on the family leaving a 30 year marriage, 2 children who idolise him and a family home behind. I will not say any more into why he left and what's going to happen as that isn't fair. Yet, it is safe to say it has been VERY hard!

I have only known the man 8 months and I feel incredibly hurt, so I cannot imagine what Simon is feeling after thinking he "knew" his Dad for 26 years. We're taking it day by day and the family are getting stronger. It's just going to be a slow process for all.

Otherwise not a lot is happening. Work is going really well still, Cohen is growing up (see picture below!) and it's now only 3 months until I go to Australia! Time is flying!!!!

Cohen at 4 months. His hair is spiky from the Oilatum for his cradle cap. Bless him!

I am one of those girls that each time I go into the hair dressers and I say "I really want to try something new but nothing too drastic. I want a change." Anyone nodding with me right now?

And then you come out with pretty much what your normal cut is just give or take a few inches shorter or longer. I have done that since I was 15 and when I sat in front of the mirror today I just said to my hair dresser Lisa "Do what you want! I just don't want it really short."

So I went from this.

This was taken 18 months ago but it shows my normal length and side fringe.

To this.

I never thought a fringe would make such a difference and I love it! I think it will be harder to maintain but we'll see. If it annoys me I can always pin it back.

I think I need to put more faith in my hairdresser more often!

So good so far.

I just want to make this a quick post to update you all on my new job! 

I was so nervous on Wednesday morning. I could just about stomach my breakfast! However, I really had nothing to worry about. Everyone was so friendly, kind and welcoming. My manager took the whole morning off her busy schedule to take me around the hospital and introduce to me everyone I don't think I have shook so many hands!!! 

I have to say there is still a lot to get my head around. The paperwork is a lot different to what I was used to and some of the routine. But I have a 3 week supernumerary status where I am not counted in staff members so I can learn the ropes.

So far it has exceeded everything I wanted out of this job and today is only my third day. I know I made the right decision in leaving.

I needed this. I feel more myself and the best thing? I look forward to going to work again!
