Communicate!

I have been working on my next assignment this week which is all about appropriate forms of communication and overcoming any barriers which might hinder communication. One thing I never really thought about is that I really do communicate with a lot of people on a daily basis. I often joke that I prefer the... Continue Reading →

What Do I Actually Do?

It’s my first ever full week on call and it’s kind of made me feel on edge all week. I was certain that once I had my first phone call that would go away, but the first call came and went yet the feeling stayed. I think it’s mostly my own neuroses causing this, but... Continue Reading →

Silly Cartoon Appreciation Post

It’s only a short update I’m afraid today as I feel more obliged to write this than actually have a plan as to what I’m writing!

It’s actually happening. I’m off on my first of five trips up North to begin learning and training for my qualification. I’m going... Continue Reading →

I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead

If you speak to me, or see me recently you have probably heard me say I’m tired, or thought I look rough. Truth is, I feel it! Between mystery pain and insomnia, my brain is in overdrive and it’s a really busy time of year in the death industry. I’m really proud of my team... Continue Reading →

My Heart’s Still Beating

It’s been a slow start to the year but I do feel fully back in the swing of things and much better with my mental state! Still having the odd blip but that can only be expected. This week we’ve been really quite busy, which comes with the unfortunate task of often having to not... Continue Reading →
