Decided on a less ‘wordy’ format for this entry. if you have any questions about any tasks/jobs mentioned – please leave a comment I’d be more than happy to reply

Pre-Work:

  • very little sleep and back is till sore. today feels like its going to be looong day. Walked Fiance to bus station.
  • In work for just before 8

Morning:

  • Chat with some of the librarians from Public Library. The cuts they’re facing are horrendous. A lot of talk of de-specialisation of staff to save money. Sure this will be happening elsewhere as well. Not heard a peep from CILIP.
  • Finish off Horizon Scanning Bulletin before its sent out. Penny tends to find most of the information for this.
  • Finished off Library Strategy Draft – sent to line manager. Once it gets OK, do Executive Summary and then off to the board (who won’t care)
  • appraisal form finished – a month late. KSF is a load of shite. Found 2 similar job titles – yet vastly different descriptions.
  • Written summary for Literature Search User Analysis did in June. Overall positive, some things to work on. Will hopefully tie into Public Health Information Needs Analysis that is currently ongoing

Lunch:

  • Due to go to Rice ‘n’ Three for lunch so didn’t do a salad. Plans changed so got a chicken mayo sandwich from Hampsons/Sayers. Sulking. Rice ‘n’ Three Rocks
  • Check emails/Facebook. Hear peep from CILIP. 9 messages about courses that are nowhere near my location.

Afternoon/Evening:

  • Bit of Procrastination – Tidied shelves behind issue desk and went through alcohol teaching packs as part of resource audit. Set criteria for use within last 3 years, seems to be over 3/4 of stock won’t meet it. What does that tell you? How ruthless can i be?
  • Bit of training with apprentice. He can now fully use laminator, binding machine and shredder!
  • Adding, then moving, then deleting some resources from library wiki. Bits of it seemed dated. need to put some time aside to work on it.
  • With webmaster hat on – do some work on PCT website.
  • Another hat on – try (and fail) to write introduction to Social Prescribing project i work on. Will need to take this home. Bugger.
  • Write instructions on setting up laptop and projector for Dermatology Team. Laptop is ancient.

Post Work:

  •  Leave work about 6.15 (5 minutes late)
  • Gave blood. I have rare blood (AB-). Mega Busy, had to wait over half and hour even with appointment. Blood then takes less than 5 minutes to leave body. I rule.
  • Future Mrs Cook discovers she has iron deficiency and can’t give blood for a year. Decide to have spinach with tea.

Day 2 over. Let me know what you think!
