A England Perceval

Remember back a year ago or so I was doing that food delivery service called Plated? How I loved it but it was just too much food for me.  Well, I've signed back up as they have made a smaller minimum order and I jumped on it.  My first two meals are going to be Fontina and Brie grilled cheese sandwiches with Fig Compote, the other being a Gnocchi in a Parmesan broth.  No I'm not a vegetarian, it just happens I picked those two.

I think I've told you that I watch the Food Network all the time.  I consider myself a foodie, even though with my Crohn's disease, I can't eat what I want.  If it's something I really want to try I do anyway!  I've decided that I could show you pictures of my plates from this service in some posts if I don't have polish to show you.

Or I could do pictures just from my life sort of thing.  It's still a work in progress in my head.

When you read this it will be 18 days until Christmas.  Where the hell did this year go? I've no idea. It will also be almost two years since my dad died.  It still feels very raw to me but I am doing better than I was two years ago for sure.

I had one of the worst days last week that I've had in a long time.  First that patient's wife who yelled at me put in a formal complaint against me for which I had to meet with my boss.  Then yet another patient yelled at me and started calling me a liar, which I am not ever so that really hurt and the icing on that day was that I found out one of my favorite patients had died.  She had been with me since I started working there in 2009.

For her to have lasted this long was a feat and I had gotten close to her and really liked her.  It was very hard to see her decline and to see the changes in her the sicker she got.  So yeah I cried several times at work that day.

Cool thing was, my boss knew that I would not have done what that patient's wife was claiming in her complaint.  I ended up calling her the next day and she and I apologized to each other, which was cool, but the formal complaint had already done it's damage.

Oh and there was a fairly new nurse there on Thursday, not there on Friday.  She had been fired. I am trying to find out why as we are so short staffed, that unless she did something bad, I would have thought they would have put her somewhere else.  I'll let you know once I find out...........

Today I decided I wanted an in your face red polish.  Here is A England Perceval.

This is not a true holo, but more a softly scattered one as A England is known for.  How pretty is this?  I just love it.

Just noticed that my 128 GB iphone really only has 113GB available.  Is there really 15GB in hardware in there for iOS 10??

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
