…well, not physically at least! I’ve had/am having a very stressful time. We managed to move, I got injured at work (almost exactly a year after I got injured the last time!) and I’ve started a second job in order to earn some extra money and get me some more experience. So there is not a lot of time to actually write on this blog
We moved to and the move went really well, however not having a lot of time has left the flat in a mess and things are in piles everywhere. I am having a very rare day off, as my first job is a school and it’s a school holiday, I’m trying to put the flat together. Which is proving hard as I’m very tired.
As mentioned, I am on holiday from my first job, but on the last day before the holidays (a week ago) I had a child aggressing towards me. I was kicked in the head quite a few times and he bit my left upper arm and broke the skin. I had to go to hospital, have a CT scan and have the wound on my arm cleaned. Luckily the CT scan came back all clear. It was a really traumatic event, though, and it’s still going around in my head. I don’t blame the child that did it, absolutely not. He’s got complex autism and a profound learning disability, and I know my job has risks to it. But all that goes through my mind is if I could have done something to prevent it… I guess I couldn’t have, but it still plays on my mind… My arm is still really bruised and the teeth marks remind me of it every day…
I am working the two jobs until the end of September, when I’ll be going back to just have the one job, so I’m hoping I’ll have some time to update this space even though I’ll be working 7 days/week. But don’t get too worried if I don’t update anything until October
