A very quick blogpost and you may see why once you finish reading it…
05:25 – Wake up, stumble out of bed, shave and get my clothes on.
06:45 – Arrive at work, find there is no milk, so no cup of tea.
07:00 – Discover that there are no adult oxygen masks on the ambulance or in stock.
07:03 – First job.
11:28 – First (and only) cup of tea of the day.
18:35 – Miles from home we get our last job.
19:09 – We finally manage to get the heavy immobile (but very nice) patient into the ambulance.
19:20 – We reach the patient's hospital, miles from station.
19:40 – I find a nurse to hand over to, our patient is likely to be on our trolley for a few hours – I point out his high risk of developing pressure sores.
19:50 – Another crew come up with a cunning plan to get us away, Control agree to it.
19:55 – We start to head home.
20:17 – We arrive back on station, knackered. Due back in work in 10 hours, 15 minutes. Not counting commuting.
20:45 – Make it home – I'm too tired to cook, yet heroically managed to blog.
Oh well, at least I have a 'not a blogmeet' to look forward to with the lovely Gordon McLean. Then the day after that…ahem. A week in Florida as paid for by my lovely mum and brother.
Yeah – I'm looking forward to a week in some sort of sunshine.
