How on earth is it already December?! Instead of a conventional advent calendar this year, I'm reading The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaarder and The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. The Christmas Mystery lends itself well as an alternative to a chocolate advent calendar as it is split into one chapter a day from the 1st to the 24th of December.
I started my five-week block of paediatrics this week and I must confess that I'm not overly excited by it all. It's all interesting and I'm learning a lot but this is a specialty that just isn't for me.
