A quick update of my life in the UK, my friend and I have moved to our new flat. An exciting development for both of us. However, it also means being truly responsible adults now who should consider our bills, rental fees, and more expenses. Unlike in our first three months when our accommodation was free by our trust/employer, we didn’t spend that much on our housing.
Additionally, moving involves planning, researching, and actually moving in. We had to pack, unpack, and shop for things we need in our new place. That is why I had been so busy for the past months. We were so lucky though because the Filipino community in our area is always supportive and helpful as they assisted us moved in.
Means of transportation
Another story to share is that I bought a bicycle as my means of transportation to ride from and to my workplace and around town. Our new flat is about a 20-minute bike ride from the hospital. I love my bike as riding it is a sort of exercise I need. Also, after a long day shift, it is very relaxing for me to be outside, to relax my mind.
In short, biking for us has had a very positive effect so far.
Sometimes, especially during our day off, we would bike around town exploring different parts and bits.
Work has been so busy as well for me. It’s very different from the nursing practice back home. So, I will be honest to say that sometimes I find the work very exhausting physically and mentally. I would be home after work with very little energy left, then I would sleep and work again the next day. As the days go by, however, it gets less and less difficult.
Nevertheless, I am alright, work is tough but I am hopeful it will not be that way forever.
