Tired, oh so tired!
First day in a new practice today, bit of a shock getting up at 6am after being unemployed for a month!
Loved being able to drive though. My new car = best thing ever.
I was unsure as to how confident I would be, with it being a Head Nurse position. I knew some of the nurses had been nursing a long time, so I guess I was worried about feeling inferior… but having spent just half a day though, in pretty damn confident that my knowledge and skills are more than up to the job. There are glaringly obvious things that need improving… but I need to settle in first.
Hopefully this will be a long term project for me!

I’ve had my new Bonts for 6 months now. After enduring foot cramps, blisters (more like craters), tears, toestop tantrums and being REALLY close to throwing them in the bin I am now finally able to say that I am happy with them and feel at one with my skates again. It’s been a long time!
I’ve spent the past 6 months really struggling to jam… I think because I didn’t trust my skates properly to do jumpy agile movements, as well as running on my toestops because they were permanently falling out unexpectedly. Jamming is very much a mindset to me, and if I’m not comfortable, I can’t do it.
And NOW… it’s clicked. I love jamming again. We had Deathstars (A) team training last night, and the jammers rotated in each drill. There were 3 on each team so it was a pretty quick rotation. And I was actually hanging out waiting to get the jammer panty so I could jam again, whereas for the past few months I’ve been actively avoiding it. Hurrah!
Thankgod. ‘cause we have a pretty big bout tomorrow!
