Week 2 has been a training week for me but in the nursery. I have been following a trainer who is lovely, she calls me her daughter as I’m the youngest and she really looks after me. It makes me feel so at home. I am have been shadowing her this week and she’s been telling me how everything works in the space, including;
- Changing diapers (nappies).
- Cleaning the area.
- Opening and closing the spaces
- Dealing with food.
- Playing with the children.
At the end of the week on Sunday (day late sorry!) at the meeting, I lost my red tag which says ‘earning my ears’ this is to show guests and other crew members I’m training. My trainer gave me some little presents to welcome me; a picture of me and her with Olaf, a book full of nice messages from everyone in Youth Activities and a scrapbook saying ‘adventures’. This was very nice and made me feel very welcome into the team.
During the week, in my time off, I have been swimming, sunbathing, visited the islands. I even managed to attend a circus type show and pirate night with fireworks. I have been out with a few friends at the bar but also a scavenger hunt type thing to say goodbye as one of my tradition friends has been moved to a different ship 😦 which is a shame.
I have developed a cold and sore throat and suffered cramps in the back of my legs this week. I think cramp is due to the walking up and down the stairs! On Friday, I was really feeling down and just couldn’t get out of it. I just wanted to go home, especially when you are ill you just want to be with your family.
Overall, I am getting there. It does take a time and I’m hoping now I’m working it will be better.
16 weeks left to go.
Anything happening at home? TV, eastenders? I do miss watching TV. How’s the weather? Has it warmed up?
