I know I moaned about my new job but I have to admit its getting easier. Its not quite so busy any more - perhaps because I am settling in and getting to know the patients, the staff and where everythings kept so my efficiency has improved! Still it can get very chaotic and I still think its apalling that they don't have 2 dr's working on a weekend
After a whirlwind tour of Sydney Wyn and Alaw arrived back in Byron. Fortunately the weather was kind and we had 2 weeks of mostly sunshine and hot weather so we did a lot of swimming in the pool and the sea, a few coastal walks and on my days off we went to the Gold Coast for 3 days of themeparks. It was the 1st time we went to Wet n Wild which was fantastic. Lots and lots of rides including 1 with an almost vertical drop which dropped you into a huge funnel in a little dinghy which you rocket up each side before eventually dropping into a pool at the end. If I ever work out how to upload videos you might get to hear Wyn scream a little..!
The one thing Im really enjoying now is having most weekends off ( a rarity in the ED.) This weekend just gone, I met up with some of the other drs to go to a rodeo! Think cowboys, horse riding,whip cracking, throwing lassoo's and bull riding! It was certainly quite a show although I'm still not quite sure what I make of it. I know its tradition and all that but I felt very sorry for the poor cows and bulls! The rest of the weekend was less of an ethical conundrum and we went to a BBQ that evening with other friends and then the Beachy pub for live music on sunday. Yes weekends are definately a perk of this job!
Anyway, I'll upload some pictures soon. Thanks to Alaw for some of her piccies that she donated for the blog! I've also invested in a new point and shoot camera which can go underwater (for places its tricky to take a big DSLR!) so theres a few pictures in the pool! Just wish I'd bought it before the Whitsundays trip!
