• Imagine having your leg cut from falling off a horse carriage because the bone broke through the skin and having the operating process take 25 minutes? Then having to be in this "theatre" with approximately 100-150 med students looking at you and the stench of industrial London permeating the walls? On top of that, your surgeon didn't wash his hands. •
The most interesting museum I've ever seen. The Old Operating Theatre where surgeries were performed before anesthesia and before antiseptics were discovered. If you didn't die from loss of blood, you'd die from infection and if none of these killed you, consider yourself as though you've won the lottery. Actual operating table used is to the left of the table in the middle. It had grooves and cut marks on it and I'm certain that if it could talk...boy would it have stories to tell.
• Finally Coming Home •
After 4 1/2 long days with about 4 1/2 hours sleep in total we're finally coming home from hospital! Big shout out to all the staff at Cramlington who have been so good to us and those around us that have helped in other ways...special thanks to my Mama - we seriously could not have done this without you. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes which were much needed and appreciated. Can't wait for everyone to meet our little boy!

Folx, go into your Uber app and set up your trusted contacts and notifications. Sharing your trips with someone could save your life one day. If you have kids, it might be a good idea to set up the family section. At least you know they won't be worried about how to pay for an Uber if they are out, in trouble, or unable to drive. You'll also know when they get in an Uber. Lyft lets you "share ETA" it's not as comprehensive a system, but it works much the same. #scarytimes #besafe #gethome
🌟After Some Strange Events That Happened To Me Yesterday ... I Sure Am Glad To Live In The Loving City Of Bristol!! Thank You For Being So Caring and Awesome!! ❤
🤔And Just Now I Reminisced About Harbourside Paddleboarding and Now I Can't Wait For The Summer To Get Back On Those Boards with @supbristol
... From The Harbour Everything Looks 1000000 X More Beautiful...😍
You'll Have To Make A Special Trip Home 😉🤗
I’ve always been fond of this quote... mostly because it highlights the fear involved in being part of change which, if not done the way the populace decrees, results in ridicule and shame. Most are not in the trenches with the cannon fodder, but they’re sure able to judge. Remember this when your attacking people who have not chosen a side. #scarytimes #judgmentbegets #understanding #choseaside #valueinanonymity #psychology #men
Hi guys, so... Have you ever heard of LORE ?
I found this podcast today on Spotify, it's from @amahnke
, and it's (obviously) quite scary... But also very interesting! I'm not going to say:"Go listen to that" just because in my opinion, you need to really like this kind of things.
Anyway, if you like horror stories, but also to know what is behind them, that's the podcast you should listen to.

Explored an old abandoned hospital, that was used in the war! It was scary! 😣 not because I'm a woman, but something happened that got my heart racing.. If anybody also wants to watch me struggle getting over a wall, and take a look inside this creepy building , then the video will be uploaded Wednesday at 4!
Some of us are old enough to remember disaster drills in schools, during the Cold War. Not sure how much protection our school desks would have been, especially in a nuclear event! #coldwar #fifties #elementaryschool #scarytimes
I start my new job tomorrow and have spent the evening reflecting on the past couple of years. I’ve learnt a lot and had a ton of good times- looking at my leaving presents is all I need to do to remind me how great my colleagues were and how much they know me. Thanks for the good times guys- I will miss you! Onto new beginnings and pastures new (probably quite literally!) 🙈🤩🐄🐖🐏🐐🦌🐕🐩🐈🐓🦃🕊🐇🐀🐿🦔#rspcacymru #newjob #scarytimes #exciting @rspca_cymru
There are days like today that I am TIRED as M O T H E R. the kids stayed up later than usual, this mama did too-_- For them, every sound of the night, turned into "some ones in the house mommy," "mommy did you hear that?!," "mama there's a ghost downstairs, I saw it!!" As much as I wanted to be annoyed or scream, I actually took it as a compliment!! Daddy was laying in the bed, right next to me, sleeping & they chose to wake up Mommy to battle their night terrors😂😂😂 Guess they think I'm a warrior!!

This sh** makes no damn sense!!!!
. They have destroyed us on purpose and ran our name through the mud starting countless wars with our money. Fuck these psychopaths and their British rulers. They don’t give a shit about you👉”The spending bills proposed by House Democrats to end the partial government shutdown offer no funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall, but provide over $12 billion more in foreign aid than the Trump administration requested, according to a statement on Thursday from the White House Office of Management and Budget. The statement warned the new House Democrat majority of President Trump’s intention to veto the bills, noting that the administration “cannot accept legislation that provides unnecessary funding for wasteful programs while ignoring the Nation’s urgent border security needs.” The White House then highlighted the billions in funding the Democrats are offering for “unnecessary programs at excessive levels” beyond what the Trump administration requested, including: $12 billion more for “international affairs programs,” including $2.9 billion more “for economic and development assistance, including funding for the West Bank/Gaza, Syria, and Pakistan, where our foreign aid is either frozen or under review.”
$700 million more than requested for the United Nations, including restored funding for the United Nation’s Population Fund, which would undermine the administration’s Mexico City Policy that bars the use of taxpayer dollars for foreign organizations that “promote or perform abortions.”
Approximately $2 billion more than requested for the Environmental Protection Agency
$7.1 billion more than the administration requested for Housing and Urban Development programs”
I'm relieved that sometimes doors close for a reason even if you don't know the reasons right away. In the fall of 2018, I was expecting to return to China. Due to the new visa requirements things did not work out as planned even after I pushed and pushed hoping to return. And I was sad that it didn't work out.
But now there continues to be serious concerns for expacts while living in China. China and the USA have an unusual relationship and news is always biased coming from both countries.
But after living in China I can account that if you are in an unfamiliar or familiar place it can still feel like the wild, wild west. Even though my city was really safe and I never felt danger the 18 months while living there I know Chinese personnel will do anything told by their superiors. I remember hearing these stories before living there and sadly enough these stories still continue.
I hope all my amazing expact friends don't get into any problems this coming year. Being detained by Chinese police is my worst nightmare for me or anyone. Be safe while traveling especially in China. I'm hoping to return for a visit this year. Hopefully things will not get worse but better.

A continuity exercise we did in class:
The objective was to replicate our instructors work as closely as possible.

Made my own best 9 of 2018 😂 not necessarily the most liked pictures off my insta feed (some weren't even on my feed). But these represented, I think, the little highlights of my year, or people/things I was/am grateful for.
Looking back, it was quite a year.
1. Bought a ukulele and learnt to play it half decently enough to have my syok sendiri moments and contribute to my family's Christmas gathering singing sessions (very important in Lee festive gatherings).
2. Had a much appreciated birthday surprise ❤️ (though I sometimes said I don't like to be surprised cause I need to know things in advance 😂).
3. Had 2 breakdown moments on separate days - one nervous breakdown (before running) and one completely cramped collapse (after running).. #scarytimes
3. Finally ran a full marathon (42km).
4. Completed my professional papers (ACCA).
5. Climbed a mini step up my career ladder (though the struggle that comes with it is still real).
6. Attended BSF more frequently (hope to be able keep this up).
Through the downhills and uphills, I thank God for seeing me through everything. Not sure how 2019 is gonna look like but will try to focus on more important things in life. #ultimatepurpose
