Blurred memories Memoirs of a lost and bewildered Australian chick through Europe.

Bemused and befuddled

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 7 February 2008 | Views [703] | Comments [7]

So i've started my new job. And it's ummmm.....different. Let me get this straight, everyone is really nice, has been really helpful etc. etc...but.... well i hate not knowing what i'm doing you know. It's so frustrating i feel like a student again. The equipment is very different, i have no idea with the PACS thing (damn liverpool being so slow to get current software) and they have the strangest protocols and exposure techniques. I HATE NOT KNOWING WHAT I'M DOING!!!!!!! I never thought i'd say this but i kinda, slightly, just a little bit might miss liverpool. But don't tell anyone!

Anyhow, that vented , things are pretty good. Winchester is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to go exploring properly. The accomodation i'm staying at isn't brilliant but its close to work. (Note to self: must relocate some blankets from work so i don't keep freezing at night-bloody cold english weather and shitty heating).

Heres hoping i stop being so dopey. It's just xrays after all.

Hey Nads!
I never thought the exposures and protocols would be that different. But at least you have PACS. Funny how the only way to get PACS is to change countries. I've been having weird dreams about spending lots in Europe, being robbed and falling on the Snow, and I'm not even going skiing! Probably just stress.
Are squirels cute in real life?

meanwhile back in livo nightshift is (insert sarcastic tone here)awesome!!. and really if you didnt know that it was going to be cold over there you should have researched it a bit better before going.
did you know the sydney funnelweb is the worlds most deadly spider it releases 110 ml of venom in a single bite and can bite through a finger nail, although daza reckons that i got mixed up between the spider and the snake either way its bad and your whinging about a little cold weather. its cold here to you know.it got down to 22 last night i almost had to turn the fan down. stuff it that will do were going up to do the mobile round.
PS i want your babies and dazza misses your shoes

Stop your whining and just enjoy it you goose!!! You've only just started, i'm sure you'll get used to it! Remember......my first day at my new job when I went overseas consisted of manufacturing a fake ID and going to the "Ole Ingram Social Club" and drinking myself silly.... So, basically - there will be good times and bad - just chalk it all up to being an "EXPERIENCE!"

That's my words of wisdom for you!
Towels are great, shampoo smells yummy and you've got the best taste in Knickers for your sister!
