I woke up today oblivious to my surroundings...I performed my daily ritual of sleepily hitting the snooze button three different times with each piercing shriek reminding me that the next ring would be the last and finally Id have to drag my body out of my cosy cocoon to pad off into my bathroom where conveniently, I already have cushions waiting for me in the tub!
Unfortunately I woke up five minutes later than usual...and with the insane traffic on the roads these days that would mean walking into the meeting room later than the Head of Surgery...something I would prefer to forgo.
I sighed and got ready...drove to work in the same trance-like state that I woke up in...stopped at a red light in the longest morning rush...pulled out my cam and took a picture of a tree..(dont ask)...reached work by some twisted sort of fate early and watched a fascinating presentation on a male patient who was admitted after a car accident that completely whacked his spine, with the CT scans showing impacted bone fragments in the spinal cord and some seriously shattered vertebrae.
I would have killed to scrub in and watch them operate but as usual all the fun surgeries either don't happen here or actually don't happen...according to the consultant the experts have agreed that leaving him in this state would be better for him than risking the surgery and operating on him leaving him with serious damage.
I sighed again for the second time this morning and joined the team to be assigned the exciting task of discharging patients..yay..Hey at least on the bright side, they get to go home before the weekend to spend time with their families.
Im on call tonight. Bleh and its not even for medical reasons.
Sometimes I wish life would just get more interesting already. I find myself like an automaton working,half hearted attempts at studying and sleeping. Whilst the world is living around me and life is happening, my eyes glaze over in boredom at the snails pace things are at my end these days.
Honestly theres so much more to life.

On a lighter note my product find of the week is Chanels Navy Satin. The sequel to last years Black satin will not disappoint...a rich,deep inky navy that has the right amount of subdued shimmer in it and one coat was all it took to let it stay on my hands from the evening through work the next day..this coming from a girl who prefers not having colour on my nails at work.Its that sssexy.

Another delicious treat is Kiehls Soy milk and Honey body polish. This is one scrub that made my usual favourite, Natura Bisse Honey scrub pale in comparision. Not only does it contain my two favourite ingredients milk and pure honey, but its scent is yummy enough to eat and the grains in it are so gentle on my skin that I didnt realize how much this product meant serious business until I noticed the next afternoon how incredibly soft my skin was..Im hooked. From the same range is the new Nurturing body wash cream and the infamous Creme de Corp in original and light versions that my skin just drank up..Prepare yourself for baby smooth skin follow.
