Rosie and Jim

My course says I should know about rabbits but no one has them here as pets. But they do have them for food, so we have got a hutch made and today we went and bought two rabbits and saved them from the pot. I have called them Rosie and Jim. We have written all over the hutch in arabic do not eat!!!!! Posted by Administrator: - 11:34 am - October 7th, 2007

I am in the ACE newsletter

They got a couple of things wrong, my dad was Syrian and it is my step dad who is Egyptian and my course is part time so 20 hours a week not 30. But everything else is true. It is funny to see yourself in print. Posted by Administrator: - 9:40 am - September 27th, 2007

Biological Research

I have bene helping these scientist who are doing a study of dogs. We have been into the desert and taking blood from dogs. Really hard work Posted by Administrator: - 4:00 pm - August 7th, 2007

Please bring me a present

if you are coming to our flats and want to bring me a present or want to get me something for my 16th birthday I really need the following books. Some are from the BVNA and some are ordinary publishers It is really difficult to get books here if you order them you get charged customs which can be as much as the books themselves and they are heavey for people to bring out. So any that other people can bring out would be such a help. Pre Veterinary Nursing Textbook Anatomy and Physiology - BSAVA

Today is the anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb. When we were on holiday in Japan we went to Hiroshima. We saw the A-bomb dome, the peace park with lots of monuments and the museum and a talk by a survivor. It was awful, it should never be used again.

Brill - a shopping mall

I saw a sign at the back of the Winter Palace saying they are building a shopping mall. I am really hoping there will be some decent clothes shops. I have two days off, well not really off, I am getting up at 5:30 to go donkey riding with some of our guests. Two days running!!! They asked for me so I made mum pay me before I agreed. Hee hee At ACE I have been having some human patients, because we have medicines they come to us. I am treating three people with burn cream. One is a little girl and I am so chuffed because her skin is now pink and healing. We also had a c-section on a sheep and Dr David showed me the womb and everything. I have written a paper on cell division for my workbook, I am not supposed to do anything before I am 16 but it is so interesting. Mum said I had to write it so she could understand. It is only 5 more days before we go to Japan, mum is really excited but I am not. I bet she does something embarrassing like sing in a karaoke bar. I shall die if she does Posted by Administrator: - 4:36 pm - June 14th, 2007

My Future

Gosh this is getting so exciting. My mum reckons the fact I have been in charge while Kim is away is a huge plus point on my CV. She has written one for me and I couldnt believe how cool it sounded. I have actually done quite a lot when you write i down I have got my first work pack from the UK and it is really interesting, lots of hard work but this is the kind of thing I enjoy. Mum reckons after I do the ANA then I could do the Vet Nurse and get a job any where in the world. With British qualifications and being bilingual she thinks I could work for a sheikh but I prefer working at ACE. They haven;t got a single nurse I will be their first one. We are both excited about going to Japan, mum has already started packing, how sad is that. she is even making lists. she says I can get an ipod there and I know you can get tunes download, the local internet cafe do it.
