Endless blue sky - A view from my village.
Well that's it, I have finished my second year. To be perfectly honest I can't quite believe how quickly this year has gone. Last September I felt like I had a huge mountain to climb and then in January I actually wondered if I would make it to the end of this academic year. But yesterday I completed my last shift for my second year, handed in my practice portfolio and drove home too tired to feel elated. This morning I am still feeling a little emotional and incredibly tired, having climbed the mountain but am left impatiently waiting to know if I passed and can climb down the other side. Exam and assignment results aren't due until later this month, so until then I will keep my fingers and toes crossed!
So I now have eight and a half weeks to rest, enjoy and just be. The best part of course will be having time at home with my family. I miss my children and husband when I am on placement as the long commute and funny hours mean that normal family time is limited. Weekends become precious but during school terms these are often filled with sports clubs and matches, concerts, play rehersals and performances and birthday parties. Therefore the summer holidays are even more precious, no commitments, just endless days to enjoy. Of course I am hoping for many sunny, blue sky, warm, hazy, lazy summer days.
Until next time, take care.
