After two weeks off work, I am returning to work tonight on my favourite shift, 18:00–01:00. I love this shift because it fits in best with my own internal body clock in addition you can get a fair number of ‘interesting’ assaults, drunks and bizarre occurrences. Of course by saying this, I’ll end up doing nothing interesting at all.
With a bit of luck (and, yes, I do have my fingers crossed here) it will be the first shift with my new crewmate. As with any new work partner it might take a little time to settle in with them, but it’s something that I’m looking forward to.
I’d like to also apologise for not posting much in an ambulance vein for the last couple of days – a bit of depression (some of it alcohol induced) coupled with an accidental deletion of my ‘potential blogging stories’ file has left me empty of inspiration.
And no, this apology isn’t because someone left a comment saying they weren’t coming back to this blog because they were bored with the non-ambulance stuff, when you read this blog you have to put up with the random breaks in transmission that shift-work and lack of inspiration causes. Included in that is that I’d sometimes like to write about stuff that isn’t ambulance related.
Besides, if they are gone, they’ll never read this…
