Best news I've heard all week, I got my exam results back! A 75% in the medical knowledge exam including 86% in clinical skills, a 87% in Theraputics (basic prescribing) and a 89% in my community follow up project (following a patient for 18 months and writing about their journey through health care). I've I've added up correctly, this means I have a 1st (the top degree classification) for my first degree, with 2 more years to go until I qualify as a doctor. I'm so happy!
I've had another lovely week, before I start Pediatrics on Monday. My mum whisked me off for a mini break to London, where we did a bit of shopping and went to a couple of shows: Sweeney Todd and Matilda,which were both excellent, but very different!
I had to go to a couple of knitting shops when in London, of course! I got a very cute pair of knitting earrings, and, from I Knit, some KnitPro interchangable needles and a gorgeous colour of sock yarn.
Then I drove my mum and Connor to Whitby (famous for Dracula and Whitby Goth weekend) for 2 nights. Even in July, it was very gothic, this was the view from the bridge (this was daytime by the way)
We also took a trip to see my parents new puppy. She's called Amber (I named her) and she's a four week old working Cocker Spaniel. Their other cocker spaniels are 12 and 7, so the plan is to retire the older one and train the new one to work. She is so cute!
