I only work part-time but I had the whole week off with Lucas… Continue reading What we got up to during the Easter Holidays
I have always absolutely loved visiting Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park. Living in Dorset, it's only a forty minute drive away for us and I have so many happy memories there as a child.

I am aware that I did not go to University to become a trained Nurse but one thing that really grinds my gears is when an ignorant Issac or a stuck up Sally says to me - 'oh, you're just a Health Care Assistant'. Well, yes I am a Health Care Assistant. I currently work in a… Continue reading ‘Just’ a Health Care Assistant
