22/03/2020 I applied to go onto the temporary Nursing Register
Back in October I came off the Nursing Register after 30 years. I had changed my role in the NHS to a non-clinical role as a Senior Organisational Development Practitioner and Coaching Lead. I didn’t need to be a Nurse and was certain I would not keep my skills up necessary to maintain my registration.Continue reading “22/03/2020 I applied to go onto the temporary Nursing Register”

Now part of being resilient is accepting that there are times in your life that will hurt, andContinue reading “Thank you Boys”
Week off to re-charge
I had rather an eventful week last week, popping over the other side of the country to see a member of my family who was poorly. They are fine now, and I am certain it was more for my benefit than theirs. My mind is at rest, and I have now stopped letting my imaginationContinue reading “Week off to re-charge”

As you know I have been a little fed up over the past couple of weeks. In my previous blog I mentioned the tonic of being coached for my well-being which was truly excellent. Then on Thursday morning I woke up to this song on my Spotify. There is nothing better than hearing something oneContinue reading “Just The Tonic”
