I really haven't got much to report, actually. So I'll just tell you what I'm reading at the moment. Here are the books on my list:
Are you seeing a common thread??? Hehe! Yeah, I'm into three main themes at the moment: nursing and midwifery; 1950's decade; and outback Australia.
Most of you would probably know by now that I am planning on doing nursing, and I am VERY interested at the moment in becoming a rural nurse, like the ones in "Bush Nurses".
I am enjoying the TV series "Call the Midwife" with Jess at the moment too, so I thought I would borrow the books from the library - "Call the Midwife", "Shadow of the Workhouse" and "Farewell to the East End". They - along with "Bedpans and Bobby Socks", and "Twelve Babies on a Bike" are all set in the post-war 1950's. I am finding the era fascinating and am starting to think that I have been born in the wrong decade! XDD
So anyway, I am in the middle of "Twelve Babies on a Bike" at the moment, which is proving to be quite funny. It is about a student midwife who has to deliver twelve babies on her own to graduate. She starts getting frustrated though, because at nearly every birth, something unusual happens and she has trouble recording the proceedings for her head midwife to review. All she wants is a "textbook birth" as she calls it, and it's just not happening. Rather amusing.
Anyway, that's all for now... I'm sitting here watching the Logie Awards at the moment, but I think I'm about to give up and go to bed. XD
Have a great week everyone! ^_^
