- A watched kettle (bump) never boils
- 'Switching off' is essential in order to lead a 'normal' life on call
- Projects are a great way of distracting the mind
- Family and friends have to be 110% understanding
- It's worth the wait
Currently I am waiting for a friends baby, whilst my family are enjoying the last of the sunshine at the coast; a planned short break, but of course baby has other plans! My house is now incredibly tidy; the washing is up to date; the gardening is done; my hair has been cut; I have spent some gift vouchers that I received in July; my knitting project is well under way........ and I am still waiting. 'Tis the life of a midwife - and one I wouldn't change!
