row row row your boat gently away from me
Merrily merrily merrily merrily please just fuckin leave
Today has just been hectic. Full of running around, dealing with district nurses, writing up notes, dealing with medication, helping residents, shit (literally) and cleaning (said shit and other things) and just all round non stop madness. I missed both my breaks, hadn’t eaten anything since 11am, and barely had chance to have a drink or even go to the loo. My back is in bits. I probably stink of various odours. And I’m just all round worn out.
But even after all this, I still enjoy my job. Because knowing that the people I care for are safe, warm, well fed and generally well looked after, makes it worth it. Without me and the other staff, some of these people wouldn’t be able to cope with certain day to day tasks. They aren’t alone and they are safe.
That. That is what makes it all worth it. To see a smile on their faces, knowing that what I do makes a difference.
