What IS it with this dang weather!!??  It has rained on and off over the last couple of weeks and, I can tell you, I am totally sick of it!  I have read US blogs and I can definitely sympathise with them over the amount of (in some instances) unseasonal snow (Although we dont get snow here and I have only seen it once in my life)!  Monday, tuesday and Wednesday were reasonable days - Monday a few light showers, Tuesday sunny, Wednesday sunny - but today has turned out to be really rotten!  Overcast all day, heavy showers for most of it and a mix of hot and mild temperatures!  Just downright horrible!

On the up-side.....I started my job yesterday!  I trained in the morning for a couple of hours and then moved onto the house where I will be working most.  I have 3 clients (P, D and G) in that house, who's disabilities range in their diversity.  The Cerebral Palsy League doesnt just cater to people with Cerebral Palsy, they cater to a whole range of disabilities (and are going through a name change, as a result).  I learnt a lot on my first day.  And there will be more and more for me to learn in the future, I bet!  I enjoyed it, all the same and look forward to my next shift on Saturday afternoon/night when we get the guys dressed up and P frocked all pretty and head out to dinner for the Multicap function that happens once a month here.  It will also give me a chance to get to know them a little better and build a rapport with them.....even if I DO come home with my arms throbbing from holding D up while dancing with him (yep - been warned of that already!).  In short, it is a chance for a few departments to come together with their clients, catch up and socialise (us and the clients), have fun and just generally have a good time!  Cant WAIT!!

My uniform is basically anything that I am comfortable with wearing.........so long as I wear shorts/pants and a shirt that wont gape in the front and closed in shoes.  I am seriously lacking in the 'modest' shirt department, so I decided to recon that red shirt I bought the other week!  It's not much for my first T recon, but I like it and I have worn it all day.

Before (I am showing you where my actual shoulder is and where the shirts' shoulder is):

And after:
Hmm......thank goodness I shaved my underarms!!  hehe

It didnt turn out exactly how I wanted it to, but it is still comfy and will become a permanent fixture in my wardrobe.  I think I might make another and do a tutorial to go with it!
