She works hard for NO money

Another week, another two days of work experience. Although I don't really work that hard. There's often quite a few lulls in the work day at the vet practice and so I spend a lot of time drinking tea and giggling over silly stories. The giggling is usually fuelled by eating too many lollies, which the drug companies send to us along with the drugs. I find it strange, you open up a shipment of drugs, only to find a packet of Shapes or Jelly Babies wedged in between two boxes or at the bottom. As much as I complain about work, it really could be a lot worse.

Truth be told, I'm still not sure if I want to be a vet nurse. I kind of took this course in a fit of 'quarter-life crisis'. I find the science aspect of the course really challenging and I'm not particularly a good person to have in an emergency. I just can't seem to get things into my head, let alone get them to stay there. I will definitely finish my Vet Nurse course because I paid for it because I really do want to work with animals and whilst this might not be what I want to do for the rest of my life, it will be a stepping stone to something else. Is there a job where I just get to play with puppies and kittens because if so, step aside, because that job is mine!!

But today was fun. We had a cruciate ligament repair surgery and a vet from another practice came in to assist with the surgery. He was looking for a particular instrument and when he found it, he picked it up and said "There you are, you sexy thing" and I started laughing (to myself) because he said it exactly how the Doctor would say it. I love when fandom and real life collide unexpectedly.

Probably won't be online much as am going home for the long weekend. And the Nilly picture is there because she looks super cute and I wanted to break up my giant block of text.

Abigail- Thanks for the cat pictures! As I said before, he's gorgeous. And thank you for your double comment :) I will definitely have to check out the book now. It's a trilogy isn't it?

LadyKate- Scare me away? Never!

At least you know you're on the right path and that's the important thing. Have a fantastic long weekend!
