I have not blogged recently as I have not realy felt the need to. Normaly I feel like I need to say something but over the last few days/weeks (I am very hazy on time passing at moment) I have been too worried and excited about things in my life to blog.
As per usual I have been working - I have done the longest strech of ni
ghts in the WORLD! I am just about to finish tonight a 12 night strech. It has been intersting to say the least. To be honest though I feel like I have improved as a nurse. I have gotten better with my time keeping if not with my sleeping. It has been even harder than usual to sleep on this strech of nights. I have managed perhaps an average day sleep of 4-5 hours. It is realy showing on me!!!
After tonight I am free as a bird for a whole month. I am having a birthday party for the Little Man who is turning 4 tomorrow (10/01/07).
Then it's pack like crazy for me as I head to the Capital for few days before departing to Abu Dhabi for 4 WEEKS! I am excited and scared at the same time.
I am excited
that I am going to be seeing another way of living - from the not working perspective as well as from the change of enviroment. I am excited
that I will have the opportunity to explore a new city/country and get to discover it in my own pace and way. I am terribly excited
about having so much time on my hands. I have not had that since I finished University and started working 4 years ago now. I am looking forward to making use of that time to reaquaint myself with my Deen. Read the Quran the way I mean to read instead of the way I do now - fast and to get it done with. Pray those extra prayers that I normaly think "I don't have time for"
I am mostly excited
about letting my body and mind recover from the crap that I put it through. I am especialy aiming on getting the recomended 8 hours of quality sleep AT NIGHT!!!!
On the other hand I am very nervous about going away and travelling by myself. It is a long way and invloves changing planes in Doha. I am terrible when it comes to changing trains and in my own city here. I dread to think what I could do wrong.For the time being the excitement wins over the fear. Lets hope it stays that way.
I am even looking forward to being in the capital for a few days. I booked my flight with the intention of seeing a certain friend of mine who I have not seen for well over a year. I had thought that if I booked the flight from London then I would definitely see her but alas she has not replied to text or phone calls. I suppose the intention was there so I hope to atleast to make her realise that I did mean to see her and not just leave without a Salam. I pray that you are well and recovering fast. Ameen.
I plan on blogging while away so hopefuly this might even become a holiday diary...Please keep me in your prayers
