Blog Break

Whilst a selected few intensive care nurses live it up in Marbella this weekend, grunts like me get the bum deal with shifts to cover the unit. I worked night shift last night and am due back for a twelve hour shift tomorrow daytime .
Hope my colleagues are enjoying their pina coladas!

  1. C'mon John. You would not have gone to Marbella regardless. The sad arse martyr wins all.

  2. I wish you a boring shift with docile patients and whatever reasons for this and that, maybe you and no one else is meant to be there at this time.
    Not to mention They will owe you big time for doing this.

  8. Like Rachel, I thought you meant a voluntary break from blogging for a while. I have been pondering such a break myself. At least if I do so, it won't be due to twelve-hour shifts doing real work!

  9. You got the raw end of that deal.......but think of all the stories you can tell!

  10. Poor you. Try to keep the memory of your jaunts earlier in the year uppermost in your mind - that should carry you through.

  12. They probably don't have scotch eggs in Marbella so you're not missing anything.
    Hope work goes smoothly

  13. Make sure there are a few scotched eggs in the fridge and some sort of sweet to pick you up.
    Along with a good sleepy cuddle with the critters.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  16. You never know, they might have dreadful hangovers, dreadful weather and their luggage hasn't arrived yet.

  17. I suppose it wouldn't be ethical to tell us a few tales from the ICU night shift?

  18. I hope they bring you back some treats...

  19. may you have quiet shifts.

  20. I'd wish something awful like shingles on them, but then you'd have to pull more shifts.
