Little Things I've Loved This Week #41



This has been one of those weeks where looking for the positives has been crucial. I've been working on-call shifts every single day and the department has been overwhelmingly busy - thanks to the  icy weather making everyone fall over.  It's easy to find lots of happy things in a good week, but I'm always more grateful for them in weeks like this one. So here are some of the little things I've loved this week (apologies that they're basically all work related!)...

The team Whatsapp group. We work a pretty stressful job and there are definitely days that if we didn't laugh, we'd cry. So checking my phone towards the end of my shift on Tuesday and finding 200 messages from the other doctors just ranting and joking about life as a T&O junior cheered me up no end! I don't think any of the nurses caught me laughing to myself in the office...

That satisified, healthy tired feeling after exercising. This week I became the kind of person who goes to they gym on a Saturday night #sorrynotsorry. (To be fair though, I was just going after work so it felt like a regular midweek day anyway). I love the feeling of knowing I'm going to sleep well that night!

Picnic bars. I tend to get obsessed with a particular chocolate bar before eating so many I eventually get sick of them. I've actually been trying not to keep buying food while I'm at work, but when the hunger kicks in at 7pm these have been my snack of choice this week!

Finding shortcuts in the hospital I didn't know existed. I've worked here for nearly six months now, but I discovered yesterday that there's a door linking two parts of the hospital that is so much quicker than the long route I've always taken before. I think things like this excite me more than they should really...

Tasty lunches. I bought a new recipe book last weekend (that I plan to be reviewing soon!) that had a plan for preparing a batch of various salad bits that can be mix-and-matched together to make lunch each day. Monday evening I got everything made, and then each night this week all I've had to do is put a few together in a tupperware box ready for a delicious lunch to take to work. It's definitely something I want to get into the habit of doing.



What have you been up to this week?

    1. Definitely! I find it much more satisfying than just buying the same M&S things every day. (Plus that's so much more expensive haha)

  2. Group whatsapp chats are definitely therapeutic and necessary, haha. Hope next week is better!
