Things that happen and I find interesting.
Off to work now. Last set of nights on General Paeds before the changeover. Managed to get a good amount of rest - slept until about 2 pm and it was nice to be with Ophie. Feeling a bit anxious about the nights, not sure why - probably because it’s been a while since I’ve been at work. 26 MT was reduced today - would like to see what it looks like, it could be ideal for us.
Waited for Ophie to come home from nights then I went home home to the Forest. Put the world to rights as usual. Back in LDN now, ready for nights tomorrow - not really. Requesting leave for the next block before I go to bed.
A bit of a slow day. I spent a lot of time following a tutorial on adding authentication but didn't get very far - it didn't explain the code we were using and there were also several errors and omissions. I found this tutorial by Evan Gow which was really well written and explained.
I also kept on reading around Health Tech and found a piece in The New Yorker from last year by Atul Gawande of Being Mortal fame. Reminded me a lot about the challenges of moving from a paperless system both at Addenbrooke's and at Barnet.
Ophelia is still on nights and I'm feeling lonely. Off to get her some oranges which she wants for a snack.
(+) More ideas:
Had some sad news today, spent a lot of time thinking about it. Tried to distract myself by looking up health tech online - Boston Children's has a health tech accelerator and they've also made a task manager. I reset my twitter account and looked for people to follow. Started a simple task manager again - GitHub suggested something like Waffle for a name, which I've gone with for now. Ophie was sleeping pre-nights and I'm really not looking forward to mine next week.
Less productive today but managed to take the Christmas decorations down and the tree away - although now there are needles everywhere. Had a nice time with O who was doing her RCPCH mock exams ready for next week, I'm sure she'll be great. Finished RDR2 finally.
Day off! Feeling good. Wrote this whole site. The code is messy but it does the job. Had some trouble with DNS (Heroku can't give static IP so you can't map A records and if there are no A records there's no resolution for other CNAMEs). Turns out Cloudflare have a 'virtual A record' which allows CNAMEs at the top-level, so switched to them. Also had a frustrating hour when the form wasn't posting any data but realised I had forgotten to name any of the inputs...
Ophie has been at work, she's off tomorrow though - pre-nights, so we'll get some time together and we need to take the tree down.
(+) Things I still need to add:
(+) Hi this is Ophie! Sneak attack hehehehehe.
T & V stayed over for NYE. Spoke to T about doing more web stuff and health tech ideas. M & K came down for Q's Birthday, ate at Del'ish. O is organising our calendar but says our shifts don't match up well.
(+) New Year's Resolution - do more web stuff and write everyday.
