It’s that time of year again. Rainbow flags, unicorns, glitter and all things fabulous. There are rainbows all around and companies changing their display picture on Facebook to a rainbow version of their logo. All good, because Pride is just one big party, right?

Mental Health is often top of my list of priorities. Especially working within healthcare, I often say that you can’t pour from an empty bucket. You need to look after you first before you can care for anybody else. Of course that goes for clinicians, but also for administrators like myself. You can’t do your best work without being your best self.
For Time To Talk Day back in February, I did a mini initiative at work in which I handed out “self care bags” in my department. These went down really well, so Amy and I decided to make the next one bigger and better! You can read about the original initiative here. Continue reading
On Sunday 18th March (it was a while ago. I know, I know, I suck!!) I had the pleasure of joining Three (Yes, the mobile network) and a group of other bloggers on a photo walk around London to compare the camera features on the IPhone X and the Samsung S9 Plus.

I like my job. I know it’s seemingly taboo to say that as a mother, but here it is again. I like my job. I enjoy it. I work reception on a maternity ward and I like it. I like my colleagues and the job itself isn’t too taxing. I can see me staying here. I only work three days a week due to working twelve hour shifts – those can be hard but in general I enjoy them. I like my time out of the house. Sometimes it’s hard to be away from Eden, but we drive each other nuts if we’re together 100% of the time.
Something I’ve realised in the last couple of months is that it is actually not possible to be a mother and work. It’s not. Nothing about it works. Continue reading
