Revolutions are hard.

Fights I've got on at the minute include trying to convince college to keep on our pet sociologist past retirement age. She doesn't want to go, the head of midwifery doesn't want her to go, we don't want her to go, she's brilliant but college are going "la la la la la I can't heeeeeeear youuuuuuu!" Then there's convincing our new minister for health that listening to me and mine is a Good Thing and that the N+MW Bill, as it stands, is stupid and wrong and evil. Evil may be overstating it, but it's late, I'm allowed drahmah.

On the periphery there's trying to get Agnes Gereb out of prison, doing what little I can to protest cuts to midwifery places in Scotland, poking hospitals about at least letting women labour in the birth pools they put in (at no small expense!) and a whole bunch of other things that are all worth it but I can't remember right now.

Then there's work, job applications, commuting, sleeping, knitting to relax, family, family holidays, trying to organise an end of training tea on the lawn thing (yer all invited, I just need to know when I'm finishing so I can actually, ya know, invite people), baking and the usual everyday stuff. Wanna go to Cork for a couple of days, but really can't afford it, which is not fun. Going back unpaid is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Ah well. It's not even that I _need_ to get away right now, but I know in a couple of weeks I'll have run out of candle to burn at both ends. Hm.
