Back to the Gym

by Fiona on August 16, 2011 · 4 comments

Got back to the gym today, joined one down the street, close to work and home. Had to work out those sore sore legs from the weekend.

Got allocated some more clients today, now I really feel like I’m getting into things :) Still got HEAPS of orientation and learning to do, but I feel kinda like I’m about to be useful soon ;)

Orphan bear

Got news today that someone who worked on the other site to me in Canberra took her life last week.

An up and down day for me.

Trying to think it through, to realise what has happened.

You don’t really know anything about people.

We all have our game faces.

Some of us hold them better than others.

Take care of yourself. Take care of each other.

We had a breakfast at work today for a staff member who has moved to another site. In the trying to remember everything that morning, I forgot lunch. So I wandered down to near the station and got these yummy sushi rolls for $2.90 each at Refresh.


Good to see they’re seriously looking at the NDIS :)

Many sizes of mandarines

Mandarines are awesome.

About to head back to Sydney after a weekend up in Newcastle. A weekend spent with family and friends, eating, drinking… talking and laughing, sniffling away with this damn cold!

Day 6 – The ever resourceful Liam, who now knows to drag things over so he can stand/climb on them to get to things.

Day 7 – Just up from a nap.

Spent most of the day reading, drinking tea. A little zoned out, but still continuing with orientation. Many tissues were used.

August 2, 2011

Today I spent in training in Ryde – talking about Cerebral Palsy, disability and person centred practice. Got a nice sunny lunchtime walk in too! :) Now I’m just sitting down to a dinner of food court leftovers bought cheaply at the end of the day from the Hurstville foodcourt. Yum.

Day one … Done!

August 1, 2011

Let’s ignore the cold shower in the morning because the flatmate’s boyfriend forgot to turn the hot water back on after doing some repairs on the weekend, and talk about the rest of the day, hey? ;) Today was spent in Terrey Hills at Corporate Orientation Day. Which meant over an hour drive to get […]
