    Good morning everyone

    My first job was in a nursing home. Had notions at the time that I might go into nursing after the leaving cert. Found it wasn’t for me so I guess some good came out of it.

    Went out to a tapas restaurant last night for daughters birthday, very tasty. Planning on having a very lazy Sunday.

    Up late watching The Black List...............just suited for me and Mr JC.............full off violence and murder and bombs

    @satz123................why would a dead nun need a blue ribbon?

    I did a year as an office junior in a Vets...............covered everything from answering the phone, making 8 thousand coffees a day and I once stood in for the animal nurse from time to time. Wish she'd been there when gigantic pig was getting his bollocks (sorry couldn't think of polite word and they're huge) removed. I did what any untrained veterinary nurse would do..............I fainted.

    Wasn't long after I left and got a job in a bank. They tend not to castrations.

    Re: May Army 2022

    Morning all - just waking up to my weekend
    Kinda worn out - this Sat /Sun working was tough. The nursing home was hot, sticky & noisy.
    The reception desk is right in the middle of it all. Dining room one side & sitting room the other

    With an empty (ish) nest - our house is relatively quiet - so it's a shock to the system when I go in there.
    I love it though - get to meet all kinds of characters now the visitors are back.

    2 good tv drama series to watch

    • The staircase - with Colin Firth ( not the Bridget Jones charactar we are used to )
    • Tell Me Your Secrets - sounds shit but had me gripped to the end .... @JackieClaire - plenty of violence, guns, stabbing .....
    Benji ....
    Doing it my way

    Morning,
    @satz123.............have written down those programs. Once we've finished The Black List we'll give them a go.

    I've got the dentist tomorrow and my anxiety has started. Luckily she knows about my phobia and has promised it'll be over before I know it............all I've got to do is remember to breath.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Afternoon everyone

    Little mini breaks are great, just the change of scene does us good. Glad you enjoyed Molly. Thanks for the recommendations Satz. Think Staircase is on Netflix? Watched Roadkill at weekend, not bad. Helen McCroary must have been ill filming it but you would never know it. Loved her in Peaky Blinders.

    Good luck at the dentist JC. I had mine a few weeks ago, glad to have it over.

    Lab/retriever locked up for full day for the first time in 2.5 years, himself away fishing and I’m at work. He had a busy weekend and I walked him for an hour this morning so hopefully the house will be in one piece when I get home!
