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 ;)
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 :)
Mandarines are awesome.
As is alternating between eucalyptus and aloe vera tissues.
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.
Crashed out last night about 8:30pm, after lots of tissues and cold and flu tablets. Woke up at my alarm this morning, not wanting to move, but it’s only day 4, I ought to go to work and meet with my managers!!!
Doped up again on cold and flu tablets, I made it til 12…. then about 12:15 my senior looked at me and said “are you okay?” um no… a minute later my recess had been thrown up *sigh*. I’m sure it was a mix of the cold, the tablets and tiredness rather than anything like a tummy bug or food poisoning. Feeling “okay” now, just the running nose again. We’ll see!
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.
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 there (I can walk to my regular workplace from Wednesday!!!). But it was a good day, well run, getting some of the ‘bigger picture’ stuff about my new workplace, including how funding works and info about yet another debit mastercard I can get to save on tax when eating out (food bloggers dream card?).
There was a range of people there – allied health, support staff, IT. And all were lovely and I learned that it’s the start of Ramadam because the IT guy couldn’t eat lunch.
Tomorrow is another day of training, this time at Ryde, a little closer but still getting used to the traffic. Sydney has it. I’ll be learning more specifically about Cerebral Palsy and working with people with disabilities.
