Work, work, work. Dull, dull, dull. Bucket loads to do and the well of motivation is totally dry. Maybe it’s gone out in sympathy with the drought. Who knows.
There was a brief bright spot this morning though. Robin (the olfactory challenged office mate) and I set up a new video system for maternity recently. They used to show educational videos on an ad-hoc basis; basically when someone remembered they’d shove a video in and run around to each of the 30 rooms to let the patients know. Now it’s all computerised. Videos, stored on a PC, screen on the hour on a dedicated channel in the maternity ward. They also have the option to switch over to a VCR for special screenings if required.
Well it’s all been a great hit. Staff love it, patients love it and to say thanks we scored a big box of chocolates.
Ah, appreciation at work. What an odd feeling.
