You know when something just gets you deep inside. I dare anyone to watch this and this and not cry. To me my blog is not just about crafts and things I make, for me it is a way of sharing my thoughts and feelings too. I think many of us who keep blogs find them a sort of diary, for me that is how I see it. OK nothing personal (really personal) get put down here, but I do write about things that are going on inside my head.
In my job you shouldn't have favourites, but we are only human, and I think as long as you don't show it it is OK. I no longer have a Nan or a Gran still alive. I have a wonderful independent Grandad, and I know I am so so lucky. But there are a couple of residents who I have to say I adore.
I also have been thinking a lot about where my life is going to go in the next few years. I need my NVQ, without it so many possibilities are closed to me. So I am looking into a way of doing it off my own back, as it looks like if I do it through work it won't be until September, two years after I started work there, but I also don't want to change jobs (that is one way I would get to do it straight away.) Sorry I digress. I saw a job advertised that floated my boat as they say. But......yep you have guessed it Training, Qualifications, Experience etc etc. But at least it is a start. I have enrolled on a few courses that I have had to pay for myself, but that's OK, I think they will be interesting and will mean that I can't be a total hermit, you know, go to work come home, go to work, come home and so on...I will HAVE to meet people and I have got my name down to do a Certificate in Counselling, but that also starts in September, see why I need to do my NVQ now!! Phew!! An NVQ 2 in Gardening just doesn't cut it!!!
I just wanted to say that I have been so lucky in my life so far to never have had a loved on effected by Dementia. Whatever life throws at me it is something I am so grateful for.
