Having a chat about books @ work today; I mentioned I was reading this masterpiece & really enjoying it. Poignant, funny & touching writing. To the horror of my soul not even our op support who has 40 years on me had heard of this book. What’s wrong with us?! Reading a classic like Thackeray or Dostoyevsky, Dickens, Fitzgerald or Faulkner is a beautiful thing.  Our lost classics 😭😢📖😢 #read #classics #whatswrongwiththeworld #books #mylifesjoy #wholeworlds #learning #adventures #pickupaclassictoday #bringbackconandoyle

Looking for accomodation in Wollongong next week for my interview. @s0phiestiicated is in USA or I’d be there. Last hotel was good but a bit noisy for my old lady nature. Also the bathroom was so small half a cat wouldn’t have been able to be swung. I am also a bargain hunter. So now I have quite possibly the best accom ever. The Nan Tien Buddhist Temple has a motel attached! The rooms look better than the good Sydney hotels I’ve stayed in, excellent prices, FREE breakfast!, on beautiful grounds with lotus pools, Asian architecture etc. Its a Buddhist monastery next door so hardly likely to be party central. I lucked out 😀 Even if I did have a dream a Buddhist plant attacked me. I’m fairly sure little men dont live in plants & try to jab you for taking photos #delusions #nomorecheesebeforebed #lotusflower #peace #serenity #comeoninnerpeaceidonthaveallday #pretty #freefood

You’re doing well old girl 💜 Sometimes letting go will bring you a little hurt in your days but that will ease until you’re on the other side. I cannot believe how much more organised & calm I’m getting. & how many oppurtunities are around now I’m in a better mental state. #movenourishbelieve #lookingahead #dontlookbackyourenotgoingthatway #thankstoallthewomenwhokeptmestrong #friends

So, this happened today! I have always liked midwifery & mental health, I just chose to go into MH. I remember a prac in a birthing unit where I saw my 1st birth. The Mum went to the bathroom after handing me her less than an hr old baby. I remember being so worried beforehand that I would hurt the baby somehow or hold her wrong. But she sat quite happily in my arms. She was a beautiful dark haired little poppet. I said “Welcome to the world little one” & then thought hmm I wish I could do or give you something. So while her Mum was having a well deserved bathroom break I prayed over the little girl. I remember asking God to keep watch over her all her days, that she’d never have troubles, that she would always be loved & always have somewhere to call home, that she’d grow up & achieve her hearts desires & find someone who loved her forever. I fell in love with middies & babies that day but chose MH cause I loved that too. Middies has stayed on my mind for 3 years & I keep praying about it. I am scared of not being good enough but also extremley excited! Wish me luck! #midwifery #babies #bubclub #chaseyourdreams #scared #excited #scarecited

Been exceptionally productive today. Pre packed lunch & snacks to *hopefully* not eat crap & diet. Applied for Ramsay Midwifery Program. Got accepted for an interview for the Health Midwifery program (yay!) Spoke to Wollongong about ? Transferring preferences to there. Applied for mh ones. Did the snazziest budget template ever to organise my budget & actually completed it #organised #likeaboss #seewhathappenswhenimfed #excited #future #amawesome
