My, my, How Time Flies

Wow, I haven't posted in a few weeks.

I apologise!!! I have been super busy with uni and work!

Uni just finished and I think I went really well!!! I know that for one class I received a High Distinction overall in one class (thats before scaling so it may not be the grade on my transcript).

I feel confident about my classes but I wont know final marks for about 3 weeks or so. Once they have marked the exams and scaled and so on. Fingers crossed!!!

One of the requirements for CSU B nursing is that we have to do LOTS of placements. I mean a LOT. The requirements of a registered nurse to meet the board certification or something like that, is 800 hours of clinical placement, CSU does 1200 hours of clinical placement. 

Each semester basically we will be on placement for at least four weeks, then 8 weeks at a time, which is a long time to be away from home! Unfortunately be Measles, Mumps and Rubella immunity wasn't high enough that I was allowed to go on prac when I was meant to. I had to post pone it so that I could finish my dose of Chicken pox vaccine and also finish my MMR vaccine.

I am the most vaccinated adult around!

Anyway, 1st of July I go on Clinical Placement. I'm trying not to think to much about it otherwise I'll get to nervous and have breakdown and become catatonic...

Finishing uni was a relief, I bought myself the movie Pitch Perfect to watch as a treat after I'd finished exams, for studying so hard and so on. It was pretty good, a few laughs. Have you seen it? Did you like it?

Off to Sydney tomorrow to visit with family for a few days, squeezing in a visit in the middle of work and my break, and S is also away for this week so it's nice to not be home alone for all those days.

I've also made huge progress in my knitting squares.

What I've been doing is knitting these squares, crocheting black edging on them, then crocheting them together into a huge blanket. I had a problem with the edges puckering with the crocheting but I finally figured out how to stop it, whooo me!

Alright I'm sure I've bored everyone enough, I know I can't believe how boring I am sometimes!!!

Just a few goals for the next few months. Lose the 10kgs I put on since the wedding is on the top of it, and finishing the cardigan that I started knitting!

Have you set any goals for yourself in the next few months? I'd love to hear about them!!!


  1. Please please please share how you stop the edges from puckering.

  2. Hi Jacana! I just saw your comment I'm so sorry! It's actually has to do with the knitting square itself. You need to slip stitch the edges. Which means, the first stitch on your row you slip without knitting, then knit to the end as normal, then the very last stitch you purl. And if you continue that the whole way through it creates a really nice edge that makes it easier to crochet the edges! Hope that answers your question!! May do I post on it soon!
