It was my first day back at University on Monday after taking a year out. I was so nervous because I was going straight into a nursing placement, at a community mental health unit. My mentor is lovely but I have to start cracking on with some work and revision, can't remember hardly any drugs anymore!
I will be visiting people suffering from severe and enduring mental illnesses in their own homes, lots of cases of OCD, eating disorders, depression and anxiety. I will have to start conducting some of the therapy all on my own and I get so nervous just thinking about it, I'm so scared of saying the wrong thing to someone!

Me and my boyfriend Chris couldn't decide what to do this Halloween, so we decided to get in some alcohol, and go to Sainsbury's to buy a giant pumpkin to carve. I had never done it before so let him get on with it :)
