Manchester As planned I went to Manchester and had a lovely time. I drove up there with no problems what so ever. I stopped for a short break at Sandbach before heading on to Bury. I went straight there and didn't once get lost. While in Manchester I went to see Terminator 3 with Phill. The film was fantastic - definately a must see blockbuster! When in Manchester I got to the Printworks cinema which is normally really good. However this time round the toliets were in a terrible state with flies buzzing round, the cinema hadn't been cleaned and the large coke I had bought didn't fit in the cup holder! I went back to the refreshment counter and asked for them to pour the coke into two medium cups for me - which they did. I didn't realise that the Film was a 12A. I hate this new certificate, because it basically means you can bring a child for any age under 12 into the cinema as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Unfortunately someone decided to take it a bit too far and brought in a 3-4yr old girl! As a result a few times during the film the kid ran up to the screen and put her hands on it! The father or whoever it was just wanted to see the film himself - but to bring someone that young in - the mind boggles.
Other then the cinema I went for a nice meal out at a place called the Duckworth arms and spent a lot of quality time with Phill and his parents.
Back to Tamworth I got back to Tamworth on Tuesday night - VERY LATE. Phill and I didn't set off until 9.45pm, so I didn't get back til 12.15am - still made good time.
Assignments, Assignments Since getting home I have been working like a demon on my assignment for Evidence based practice. I have written the first draft. I have to type it up now and then write the discussion and conclusion. Should be completely finished by tomorrow afternoon/evening (depending when I get up).
Placement I start my new placement at a respite home on Wednesday.This week I do two shifts and then every week after that I do four. I will be doing shifts like 7.15am-3.15pm and 2 til 10. Alot of the time I have been put down to do a late then an early - should be interesting considering I have a 40-50min journey to and from placement heh. I am looking forward to the placement - and always do.
Blackpool Next Fri/Sat/Sun I will be in Blackpool (driving back on the Sunday). Phill and I are going to a conference at the Imperial hotel called Data and Network Security Conference or DNS CON. Phill will be presenting there, not sure what he will be talking about yet, but its normally good.
Thats about it for now. Oh one more thing ROLL ON AUTUMN!!!!!!!! I am so sick of this horrible hot weather - I am so not a summer girl. I like cool weather were you wear warm cuddly clothes heh.
