The last few months have been a killer. In fact, in the last four weeks, there have only been two days where I haven't stepped foot inside a hospital. Two days. So you will understand when I say I'm now more or less deceased.

Good news is that I now have five (much needed) weeks off for annual leave! We get four weeks a year, but I had lots of days off that I didn't take from last year saved up, hence the five whole weeks. I haven't even been around here enough to tell you guys what I'm getting up to - I'm going to Morocco for two weeks, and will also be in (outer) London for a few days to do yet another work-related course (ATLS this time). Honestly speaking, I'm so exhausted that I kind of just want to stay in bed the whole time instead, but everything is booked and paid for so I guess I'll just have to bear it. For the first time ever I'm not looking forward to packing for this trip. Why is it still so cold in London?? I was hoping to not have to pack a coat. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I was in Melbourne for a few days last week for an intensive care course at one of the hospitals down there. I only managed to squeeze it in - I left the same morning I finished up a night shift, and returned the same afternoon I was starting another - so I didn’t have much time to explore. I’ve been to Melbourne before, but not recently, and like I’ve said in the past it’s my city equivalent of that friend of a friend you always see by chance and really like, but never hang out with properly. For anyone who’s not been, it’s pretty much Sydney’s nicer, cooler younger sister.

Cocktail party

Uniqlo silk shirt / Grana silk pants / Cole Haan loafers / Fossil bag / Daniel Wellington cuff.

The outfit I wore last Saturday to our work end of term/clinical year cocktail party, the components of which you may have seen here and there if you've been reading this blog for a while! I'm starting to get kicks out of seeing how much further I could stretch my usual wardrobe in an effort not to buy new/proper formal clothes for events. I usually dress more on the casual side for most things, but I do have a friend's wedding later in the year and I'd want to adhere to the dress code out of respect for her - we'll see how we go!
