9 years first class service

Lovely day today spent going for a nice walk in the sun then out for a delicious Sunday roast in Milngavie.

My younger brother Jordan is over for a visit and some babysitting – literally taking some weight off my shoulders

Someone sent me this photo during the week and I don’t know if this is true for all families but it certainly is for us:

My mum calls me ‘the golden child’ ☺️ and of my 3 younger brothers Jordan is definitely the most similar to the second monkey πŸ˜‚

It’s also true for my own first and second daughters.

Child number 2 Sienna seems to be growing more hair in the exact same place I seem to be losing it – must be all that hanging upside down from branches!

Im assuming our family isn’t alone on the first and second child monkey rule?

Our work family is a little different of-course and it’s only really on the Christmas night out that the second monkey might come out πŸ˜†. We’ve all taken our turn at that to be fair. This year it might be a little different as im not sure Christmas nights out will go ahead? Next year our team may look a little different too as some of our staff are moving on to the next phase of their career.

Just before lockdown our nurse & marketing manager Gemma told me that she had been accepted to train to be a hospital nurse from this month. More recently our senior nurse Danielle also got accepted to move into an oral health support role for NHS Scotland.

It’s a bitter sweet feeling as I’m so happy for & proud of both of them to be furthering their careers. At the same time I’m also gutted to be losing two amazing nurses and even more so two lovely, fun, bubbly people who are integral members of our team. I know all of our patients & the rest of our staff will be as sad (but happy) as I am to see them move on.

Thank you both for the first class service over the past 9 years, and all the very best of luck in the next stage of your careers ❀️ ☘️

Thankfully they’ll both still be with us for a while on a part time basis – which should guarantee them their testimonial match (one for the football fans 😝)

Have a good week everyone,
