1. This week marked the end of 6 months working in General Paediatrics; tomorrow I’ll be starting a new job in Neonatology. I’m slightly terrified of the prospect of looking after tiny little babies, but equally excited too! I always love a new challenge.
2. We had a staff party on Friday evening as most of the doctors are going off in different directions to different hospitals. We had a pretty subdued affair at our local Italian as some of us were working early the next day! I discovered pasta alla siciliana, which is a tomato sauce pasta with aubergine – ah-mazzzinnngg! I need to experiment more with my pasta sauces.
3. Harpall and I discovered a new series by Judd Apatow on Netflix called Love – a sort of dark comedy about an unexpected romance between a sweet, nerdy guy and a brash girl with an addictive personality. I like it because like Master of None, it’s pretty spot on about modern dating and far more relevant. I would requote my favourite lines… but they’re pretty rude and I don’t want a telling off! Check it out for yourself!
4. I went to visit some peeps in Reading this weekend and got to relive my old Reading days when I lived there a few years ago. I don’t care what people say about the place, I love it. I love the dodgy road system, the drunk guy raving in the town centre, the riverside. Also, they’ve opened some fab food joints since I’ve been away – we had Asian fusion food and cocktails in Coconut Bar & Kitchen and student-type hot dogs and mac and cheese in the funky Pavlov’s Dog.
