Aussie Bloggers Conference 2011

I had a truly fabulous day yesterday met up with some lovely bloggers (like meeting celebrities) who I had been commenting with online and chuckling over their Tweets over the years. Completely forgot to take photos as the conference was so well run, I had to concentrate on who was speaking and watching the room's activities. Loved the meet'n'greet game at the start

Maybe someone else can list all contents as I've had to call in the SES because the ceiling in my bedroom now has a hole in it as a result of the horrendous deluge of rain we have had these past two days in Sydney and the NSW Central Coast. More here

St Patricks Day 2011 Flashmob
Central Station, Sydney, Australia

Central is the terminus station for all intercity and interstate trains coming into Sydney. I know this station very well as its my start-off point to explore Sydney and its surrounds. Exiting to catch the Light Rail down to Paddys Market and Darling Harbour, of going further to Star City Casino, the Sydney Fish Markets and its restaurants and further still to Glebe Markets.

I had problems with an aged client but after reading my report my supervisor and the manager had a meeting and have now removed client from our service. Client will now be outsourced to a private agency.

My health (stress) and safety (manual handling) were at risk. I have been an aged care field worker for 8 years, I work 5 days a week so have extensive experience working with the elderly, frail and disabled. I have had dementia care training and I have always been able negotiate with difficult clients but this lady I could not come to a common ground to work with.

Thankfully, as a team rep in branch meetings I have had contact with our manager and she listened and acted when I have expressed concern on OHS issues in the our field work/workplace.
