I don't mind night shift; I rarely have any trouble sleeping during the day, although I do use earplugs and have recently contemplated an eye mask since the gap in our bedroom blinds seems to be growing.
I feel an odd satisfaction in being awake while everybody else is in the land of nod and enjoy the decadence of getting into bed as the rest of my world rise out of theirs. The TP weather has (again) been unseasonably wet and cold so a day-time sleep has felt extra-luxurious.
These last nights were all the more agreeable since we saw barely a soul. The absence of patients is all the more incredible when you consider that, over long weekend, TP hosted BMX, Motocross, Speedway and Go-Karts. A broken collar-bone was the worst injury and they were kind enough to present during daylight hours.
Indeed, my night-shift experience could only be more pleasing if Ade had laundered the sheets each morning between him getting out of them and me getting under them; I will suggest this for my next set of nights (it all starts again on Thursday)...
So while I was sleeping:
|Esther lost her first tooth!!!|
|Splashing in puddles is lots of fun|
|The veggies grow like crazy!|
|Mermaids come out to play xx|
