A new Chapter...

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

Well I started my new job, for Kids Unlimited...

I think I'm really going to like it, I'm getting to know the routine, the kids and staff. I'm working Tuesdays and Thursdays, both 10 hour days which is tiring, but I'll get used to it. I am in the pre-school room so will be helping to care for/educate 3 and 4 year olds. I need to learn the paperwork routine but have already planned one activity, recorded it and will need to follow it up again with my key children in a few weeks. I am a key person for 6 children, my responsibilities include liaising with their parents and keeping their files up to date amongst other things.

I have some knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage but need to swot up a bit more, I need to be imaginative with my planning so will need to get my thinking cap on and create some fun activities for the kids to get stuck into. Its strange that I have all the knowledge from my assignments and lectures at uni but not much hands on experience but I'm sure it won't take me long to get the hang of things.

I've had a busy few days, as well as the job, but I will update about that in a separate blog. Before my transplant I used to find it hard to blog about things, as my life was not "normal" it revolved around hospitals, diets, needles, medication, clinics and now there's not enough time in my day to sit down and write about all the things I have done, places I have been and people I have met!

I still can't believe I'm not a student and actually have a job. Of course none of this would have been possible with out the generosity of my donor and their family, and I hope that I make them proud in my new venture.


  1. Yay, well done Holly :D I hope all continues to go well with your job.
