Bumped into The Doctor tonight.

I finally met Rose.

It was...awkward, to say the least.

More later...got to go nick the Turkey from Mum now.

I called the Hospital a few minutes ago. The victims of the car accident...the driver is still in a bad way, but he's stabilizing. The passenger (his significant other I think) is awake and mostly ok. The little girl...she didn't survive. She passed away about an hour ago. She was 6 years old.

So close to Christmas.....

Not the best day ever

I've just got home from work. My shift started at 7 o'clock this morning and I really didn't want to get out of bed. But I dragged myself out and got in the shower, where I did two things:

1 - Stubbed my toe on the door
2 - Dropped my shower gel on my other foot.

I should have taken that as an indication of how my day was going to be, really.

We had three rushed into A&E after a car crash in central London. The driver had a massive head trauma and a few broken ribs where his body impacted the steering wheel and passenger had whiplash and a few cuts and bruises. It was the little girl that was worst off. She couldn't have been more than 6 or 7. She wasn't wearing her seatbelt. *sighs* She was unconscious when she was brought in; massive head trauma, internal bleeding and more than a few broken bones. I took her into Theatre and from there the Surgeons took care of her.

I checked in on her just before my shift ended. She was still unconscious and still crtical, although the surgury went well. I hope she makes it through the night.

I need another shower. I'll update if I hear anything else.

Paint Fumes (Take Two)

Listening To: Hard-Fi - Living For The Weekend

(ARRHG!! I knocked my keyboard and I lost my entry! *headdesk* Why did I let Tish talk me into this again?)

That's the wall done. Didn't take as long as I thought it would really. I've shut myself in the bedroom so the paint fumes don't send me high. Not that I mind....I have my comfy bed, my laptop and my internet connection. What more could a girl ask for? ;P

I've been playing about with this for a while. I changed the layout (I had to call Tish who passed me on to her friend...she told me where to go and what to put in where). I chose this one because I liked the quote at the top. "Everything you do leaves and imprint on the life of someone else." It reminded me of The Doctor in some weird way. His actions (and mine) left imprints on the people we left behind. The people of New New York; now free and happy living in the big city because of The Doctor (and the Face of Boe). Joan and Tim in 1913; the former falling in love with the Doctor (well...the human him) and finding out she couldn't live happily ever after with him (sounds familiar) and the latter surviving an event that he wasn't supposed to survive and living a fantastic life because of it. We left our imprint on them, and whether happy or sad, we all have to live with that.

God, is every entry going to end with in-depth musings on my family or The Doctor?

Back to my Journal: The Welcome page is telling me that I haven't updated yet. Hmm...stupid thing.

Well, I think I'm going to get undressed, snuggle under my duvet and watch Back To The Future. And pig out on Maltesers. Mmm....heaven! ;)

So...my first entry.

Listening To: Nelly Furtado - Maneater

So, I finally gave in to Tish and got one of these LiveJournal thingys. "It's all the rage!" She says. "Anyone who's anyone is blogging nowadays."

Well, "anyone who's anyone" doesn't work shifts at Royal Hope Hospital. I barely have time for myself, let alone one of these things.

But I was curious, so I gave in. Today is my day off and I have the time to set it all up, find out how everything works and play about for a bit.

I finally got a new flat. It's a lot bigger than the old one (Couldn't have swung a cat in that place) and the rent isn't too bad. Dad insisted on paying half of it. He's doing that alot lately....not paying for things, I mean doing things for us...spending time with us. I think that year changed him. He saw things that should never have happened, and I think it made him appreciate his family more. Annalise is gone. He finally put his foot down and she couldn't handle it, so she left.

But yeah, the new flat. It's nearly decorated now. The bedroom and kitchen are done and the living room is half way there. Speaking of which, I still have one more wall to paint.

I'll be back
