A great reminder

I am off work yet again with my sore back. I have been off work far too much this last year, in fact when I go back I will have to have a management meeting because I have had more than eight days off in the last six months. It's so strange because prior

Unfortunately this is not shocking

I came home from nightshift a few hours ago (I could only sleep for an hour or two so I can cycle back to days tomorrow) and came across this article on my facebook timeline: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/jan/08/an-absolute-warzone-nhs-doctors-d

Hello there. I wonder why I sometimes over look some writers. I get so wrapped up in things I forget about posting comments. Take care and good luck.
