Hi Solange,,,,,, well had some time to think over the xmas break,,, done and gave my resignation 23rd Dec. Lovely manager, who I've known for 30 years,,, only looked at it, put it on her desk and gave it a pat,,,, until Tuesday. ( in case I changed my mind ) Any way after all that and a re talk on Tuesday,, I have decided to retire,,, the most confronting time was when I had to sign the separation form at the hosp,,, extremely hard, because its now final.
So yesterday I spent some time in the blackcurrant patch,,, just me and my music and do you no what ???? it was wonderful,,, no forward planning etc going through my mind,,,, yes I think I am going to enjoy all this ME time,, just not looking forward to the 68th birthday in couple of weeks time... Lovely to be able to chat with you,,, Robyn

Hi Solange,,,, thanks for your reply, after more explanation to the big manager re the noodles and balloons, she could then see that it was beneficial and also encouraged exercise. Even the Dr who also saw this had a smile and she also said it was good.
I have a 68th birthday in Jan and have now decided to retire, I am swamped with paperwork,,, unbelievable. End of this week I will use all my leave up and then finish.
Lovely to talk to you.

This is also is very popular where I am. The one that asks for this the most is 98 yrs old and she loves, it as do the other residents that join in. BUT the acting NUM, only a RN thinks it is childish. I am finding this so hard to deal with, I am past retiring age so might bow out very soon in the next few weeks.
I'll guarantee that the same lady will still ask for the noodles and balloons, and I hope she continues to do so.

Match Songs with Artists Quiz 2

great idea,, but little too modern for some of my residents who are in 80's and 90's. Will do another version of older songs, Robyn
