Placement has began...

I have officially made it through all my exams and assignments of uni and have now head out into the big wide world of The Prince Charles Hospital! Yesterday was my first day of 5 weeks placement in an orthopedic ward. It was a little bit daunting and information overload but it was good all the same and I think I might enjoy it quite alot!

DIY projects...

I have already hinted in a previous post that I have been doing a few fun crafty things in the spare time I have. This is my favourite to date is these photo frames I have revamped to hang in my room.  I have collected a few wonderful vintage frames from the local oppies and turned them into this...

 If you would like to make your own memorable creation... there are a few things you must gather:

  • vintage frame, or frame of any kind
  • chicken wire and a staple gun to attach it
  • twine
  • memorable mementos and photos
  • pegs, string, ribbion, paper clips, anything really that you would like to put in the frames. 

First thing you must do is remove that photo within the frame and cut the chicken wire to the right size. you can then use a staple gun to attach the wire and the twine to hold the frame on the wall. 

 Its now time to get creative and use all manner of photos, mementos, ribbons and such to turn your frames into your own personal art work to hang on your wall.  I used small wooden pegs, various ribbons, pieces of material and colourful bulldog clips.
There is no right or wrong, just start placing photos random and eventually it will begin to resemble something like this...
Now all that is left to do is hang it on the wall and admire your handy work!

the past month...

watching... Bones!  Now for all of those who just scoffed in disapproval, give it a chance I use to think it was silly but now I love it, and those of you who are already fans - Well done!
reading... this lovely lady recommends great books, the latest recommendation was One Day by David Nicholls.  It is a wonderful read and would recommend to fellow reading enthusiasts. 
excited... for the end of the uni semester, being on my first official hospital placement, five wonderful weeks holiday break and most excitingly NEPAL in september!
