I Am Mighty!

Working in a hospital as I do, I find it quite a surreal experience to be on the other side of the imaginary patient-professional wall. There is, at the same time, something both comforting and terrifying in knowing how an operating theatre ...

#cruiseofamazingness roller-coaster

I've put off writing this post for a while. It's been a tough week or so, and I am only just picking myself up after one of those loop-the-loop things with a big drop at the end. Catching up from last ...

You’re going to do what to my ovaries?

Join Me In A Dance
