Putting the Flo back in Flo-rence.

Sorry to be glum chaps but I need a bit of extra puff- I seem to have misplaced my glass that is always half full at the moment. I thought this was a good opportunity to apologise for my lack of blogging and give you a little explanation. You may know if you have been tagging along for a while I moved to London to start out on a new and exciting career. But being a paediatric nurse is sadly not all about playing games with children and cuddling adorable babies. Some days are pretty tough and I am finding my spare time to blog is limited. :-(

In an attempt to be less bitter I have spent the afternoon browsing the internet for nursing inspiration. What is even sadder than that is... I have not found a lot out there.

I never intended on blogging about work but I am hoping to incorporate an element of nursing to my little internet space. With the hope I can make myself and others smile (or cry- who knows?). Don't get me wrong, I love the job most of the time.

P.S. The biggest apology goes to my bister Sarah I know you check everyday for something to read before bed and  like to remind me of this. 


  1. As difficult as some days may be, I must tell you that the experiences that I have had with pediatric nurses have been nothing but amazing. Keep it up :)

  2. I can't imagine how hard it must be, you must have an amazing amount of inner strength!

  3. I don't have any experience as/with a pediatric nurse but I have spent a lot of time (in high school and as a camp counselor) with children who have disabilities. I know its not the same thing but I think it takes a similar amount of strength. My heart would break when I would see what some of these kids had to go through on a daily basis. But then I would remind myself that I was there to help make life better for them and that was very rewarding.

    Just hold your head up and I hope you'll find the inspiration you need soon : )

  4. I have shared very similar feelings. I also have a blog and feel a need to keep it going because of my "regulars" who like something fresh. But I also deal with feelings of despair and sadness at times and hesitate to share those very real experiences. I wonder why we try to keep those things to ourselves. Perhaps when others hear that everyone struggles with challenges they will take heart and try to push forward through their own quagmires. Thank you for your honesty. It made me feel that I wasn't alone.

  5. I hope you feel better! Im a new follower, thanks for visiting mine!

  6. I'm no nurse but I have had experience as a "missionary" in foreign countries. I know the pain and suffering of children is so heart breaking it takes a special person to do what you do. Not very many people can take it, that is why it is such important work, to few people take on the challenge. Keep it up and the reward will be worth it. Your little post has touched me. I'm now following. Rose
    PS. Thanks for the comment on my blog and for leaving a link to yours.

  7. I spent quite a bit of time in hospital when I was little and HATED it but I always loved the nurses. They made me feel less scared and more reassured that I was ok. You're so lovely, bubbly and funny, I just know you're a fabulous nurse, just the kind of person I would've loved to be looking after me. I know how nurses work so hard though, the hours are crazy and there's so much paperwork, it must get so tough! Having seen how much nurses have to do I think you're totally amazing!
    By the way, my neighbour wore a morph suit for the Jubilee but didn't wear anything at all underneath it. They're VERY revealing and I think he terrified a lot of children. It wasn't fun for us haha xxxx
