So, having completed my CT applications only 2 weeks Ago, today I find that my England/Wales/NI application has reached interview stage. All applicants are guaranteed one interview. So in January I have to head to Torquay!

This is not as easy as it seems. Interviews are on Monday's, and the easiest seems to be to fly to Bristol, then hire car to Torquay. But it all depends what time they give me.

30th birthday present!

It's here and I now have wonderful proper coffee!

Clinic week

This job has a very odd Rota. Lots of weeks with 7x13hr shifts or 5x12hrs and then to counterbalance it all, clinic weeks which are 3 clinics plus teaching session totalling 2x8hr days.

This is one such week, and thus gives some free time to catch up on MSc reading, write case reports and audit reports from last block, and even do some Christmas shopping, cleaning and catch up on sleep.

However this does mean that the end of December and into January is a busy month of 12hr shifts. Still that's a week away and we have Christmas first.
