Mundane News

I am a full week overdue for an RDO.  but I have had such a good time at work, feeling productive, that I haven’t felt the urge for a day off.  I should take one next week.  We can’t accumulate RDOs as I understand it.

Yesterday I received confirmation in writing that at last my qualifications have been accepted by the WA Dept of Health.  Some 9 months after I applied and 6 months after I actually started the job here.  But finally.  So now it is time for my performance review of the last 6 months work and hopefully, confirmation of permanent employment.  Also a good time to determine my future activities and aspirations.

Yesterday I also received a nice certificate from FESA confirming I had passed the basic bush firefighter course.  Not that I have any aspirations to become good at that!  In fact if I never see a bushfire it will be very heartening indeed.   But at least I know enough to stay out of the dead zone and keep one foot in the black.

Radiant heat is the enemy.



About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    As you might recall-in Wellington-radiant cold is what kills.
    In Auckland it’s gray boredom.
