Health staff set to walk out for 24 hours in Ireland

Published 04/18/2012 by myworldmyblog


The 4,000 plus health staff are set to walk out next month due to pay and conditions, this would mean widespread disruption to GP surgeries, hospitals and health care in the community if it goes at ahead on the 10th May 2012. This will include, ambulance staff, district nurses, health visitors and lab technicians. If the plans go ahead it would mean all day surgeries will be postponed, although emergency care will continue

Unite’s regional officer for health, Kevin McAdam, said: “The Government is picking the pockets of health workers by an average of £30-a-month in order to pay for pension changes which will see people having to work longer to get less.

“This disgraceful attack comes against a backdrop of pay freezes and the threat of regional pay in the public sector. In the face of continued attacks, health workers will be stepping up their campaign and looking to join other public sector workers in taking action on May 10.”

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Published 04/15/2012 by myworldmyblog

Hi All

Everyone loves their chocolate chips right and you might have an entire bag going spare after decorating cakes for easter celebrations. Don’t let them go to waste. Here is a short and simple recipe you can try with some with chocolate chips and ingredients left over in the cupboard. I have added photos which I have used from google but these are not what everything will look like, just a general photo to what it might look like.

Cooking time 10-30 minutes

Makes 10-15

The ingredients

  • 350g/12¼oz unsifted flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of sods
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 225g/8oz butter
  • 175g/6¼oz caster sugar
  • 175g/6¼oz soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 350g/12¼oz  dark chocolate melted.

The Method

1. Preheat your over to 190c (Gas Mark 5)

2. Combine  the flour, baking soda and salt.

3. In another bowl, combine the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Beat in the eggs. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Don’t forget your chocolate chips right?

4. Melt your dark chocolate and stir in

5. Split the pliable dough into two halves, rolling each out into sausage shapes, approximately 5cm/2in in diameter.

6. Wrap them in cling film and transfer to the refrigerator until ready to use

7. When you are ready to bake the cookies, simply cut the log into slices 2cm/¾in thick and lay on a baking tray, widely spaced apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes.

8. Put on rack, wait till cool and serve

9. Eat cookies

Hi All

For a few personal reasons I am not really my usual self, I have had a lot of bugs recently which I seem to be catching more frequently and plus I am feeling rather lonely so I am not a happy bunny. But I am hoping next week, I am gonna have thing to focus on and learn to de-stress.

I am also gonna set myself a target each day of small chunks to get done. For example,  I am gonna write one letter a day,  make a new friend online etc and then I am gonna treat myself a small pressie every week. Then hopefully the second week to increase my letters two a day. I might also apply the same theory to writing assignments, instead of going through an entire assignment in one hit and I am gonna manage it in small manageable chunks.

I will keep you posted on how things are going.



Fashion No No No Natalie

Published 04/13/2012 by myworldmyblog

Send the fashion police on to Natalie and get her arrested as soon as possible.

It seems that Natalie Cassidy hasn’t learnt her lesson when it comes to fashion as she was spotted coming out the ITV studios in a pair of blue ill-fitting and tight bottoms as she made her way home from the  Loose Women studios.

As a girl of similar size I would never been seen dead in light blue tight jeans
simply because I would be too self conscious.

Here is the other fashion distaster she has done in the past. Do you remember this?

The dress above in my opinion to short for Natalie as it makes her legs look enormous to her frame

Over to you, what do you think, does she look hot or a cold turkey?
