Hence a lot of tension when some one says something rude or anti-English and instead of just shrugging my shoulders as I normally would I'm saying "Well actually I think you are a *******, and your country is **** and all Aussies are ***** so why don't you go and **** yourself?!" I should know better really but it does feel good to say it lol lol!!!

I'm taking my last week off sick, we don't get paid a week in hand so essentially I'd be working for nothing which will really annoy me so best for all concerned I think!!! They can go.................................... ha ha ha!!!!!
Enjoy your week off! You earned it. If they don't want to pay you for your sick time that's owed you, well then they will just have to deal with it, won't they?

Thanks I think I'm just going to try and go with the flow once I'm back. Even though it nearly killed me to stay these extra months it's fantastic to have a nice solid financial cushion behind me now so I can take my time and not have to make any quick/rash decisions due to lack of finances!!!

They have treated us Brit medics very badly so I don't feel too guilty I must admit! I'll just have to suck it up paying $65 for a doctor's certificate I guess. When the doctor asks me what's wrong I'll just look at him sadly, tip my head to one side and say "Doc, I think I've gone ..........troppo!!!!" lol!!

Finally got the e-mail I've been waiting patiently for from NHS Jobs! South Central Ambulance Service are recruiting for paramedics again after 2 years of not doing so, in the area I want to work in AND the interview date is June 15th when I will have been home for two whole weeks - yay!!!!!

Application form filled in and submitted today so fingers crossed! Best performing ambulance service in the UK, close enough to commute to and they run the paramedic practitioner course I'm keen to apply for - pick me, pick me, pick meeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Thank you for the vote of confidence - I did spend hours on the application form before I submitted it lol!

Thanks! Yes just like relationships and roast dinners it all about timing! I can't believe they just advertised as they haven't for the past two years and the interview date is two days before I start on my 4 week course in Hereford - how about that?!!!

Cheers me dear! The timing is perfect so hoping and praying I get an interview then I can go in there and try to win them over!
