In my previous life, before moving to the U.K., I was a registered nurse in a busy hospital, on a very busy ward. My day started at 7am sharp and I never knew from day to day where my nursing skills were going to be used. It could be pediatrics, oncology, medical/surgical, the cardiac unit, or rehab. Every day was different and you hit the ground running. Now, even though my day starts about 7am, my work and life couldn't be more different. There's a gentle routine to the day, that's both predictable and comforting.
changing leaves fill my view.

and replaced with cheery aprons
and Oxford bicycles.
