Back Home

The end of last week saw my return to the city after 19 weeks of my midwifery clerkship. What started out as a 13 week placement was extended and I have returned home in the knowledge that I'm not finished yet: I have to do a further two months in another practice!

Although I am a country girl at heart, it is good to be home. There was a certain lack of permanence in being away from home for such an extended period of time and I missed many aspects of normal daily life.

There hasn't been time so far for taking my leisure though, as I struggle to find room for all of my possessions at home. Isn't it strange how when one person is away for an extended period of time, the other manages to occupy all available space in cupboards, drawers and bookshelves! Added to which, I have been trying to catch up on my 'spring cleaning' which has not been touched in the last five months.

Things are slowly taking shape and home looks a lot more organized than it did even yesterday. I hope to have some time to slow down, maybe visit our friends and sit on their swing again soon....these photos were taken on a brief visit at the end of May.
