    Fat in med school

    I'm a fat midwife, newly qualified. I was the fattest in my class and I am usually the fattest on shift, but not always. I was worried they wouldn't have uniform to fit me, but they did. The only thing they didn't have was scrubs to fit, so I bought my own. I could have insisted that the...

    MOD NEEDED: Attempt to hack my account.

    I had this as well, a couple of weeks ago. Just changed my password and have had nothing since but thought it was odd. Was on holiday at the time so forgot to mention it.

    What are you happy about today?

    Thanks, Tad! The jobs are each about an hour commute from where I am currently based/would like to be. Not that far, but the cost of petrol is a factor, as is facing an hour's drive home after a 12 hour shift/night shift. Not ideal but manageable for a year or so. My girlfriend (also a student...

    Summer 2015

    Nice car, Surly! Until the end of July I was interviewing for jobs, trying to finish my dissertation and 3 other assignments, prepping for/taking an exam, attending placement at the hospital and trying to fit in time to go to my part-time job and see my girlfriend without having a nervous...

    What are you happy about today?

    I have a month left of my degree, 2 job offers and only 8 more babies to catch before I qualify. Yay :)

    What's your favorite potato dish/

    I love colcannon (isn't it irish??), but I've never had it with cheese on, or baked in the oven. When I make it, it's just mashed potato with lots of butter, milk (/cream :eat2:) and salt & pepper, and then the sauteed onion and cabbage is just stirred in. Not sure if that's the authentic way...

    What are your plans for this summer?!

    I went once when I was young, to a different part of the island. But not since I was a child.

    What are your plans for this summer?!

    My girlfriend and I are going to Crete for a week of lying in the sun, swimming and pottering about. Can't wait! Apart from that I'll mostly be finishing up my degree, so lots of shifts (unpaid) and hopefully a few paid hours on the side. Other than that, mostly free activities - walks, sitting...

    Your Wild Life

    I live in the concrete jungle, so a squirrel is about as exciting as it gets around here, or the odd fox...or rat (eww!). My parents live nearer the countryside so there's a bit more wildlife there - rabbits, foxes, deer, ducks, badgers, hedgehogs etc.

    What's on the dinner table tonight?

    I have loads of veg to use, so tonight will be wholewheat pasta with courgettes, mange tout, peas, broccoli and mushrooms, bound together with some red pesto.

    Nice pics everyone. Not shown my face for a while, so thought I'd post this pic of me at a wedding a couple of weeks ago.

    sun-dresses for pear shapes?

    Tad, I love how much thought you're putting into this. Mrs Tad is indeed a lucky lady. :-) I forgot to mention that I bought this dress recently: It would be better in a cotton fabric for warmer climes, but it was pretty lightweight and airy to wear. The cut might work for your wife? I...

    sun-dresses for pear shapes?

    I'm a pear shape and when it comes to summer dresses, I do quite like an A-line skirt I'm afraid! I usually wear dresses like the one pictured here, with 'comfort shorts' underneath to protect against the chafe! I don't like bearing my arms so I usually wear a light cardigan or demin jacket...
