Clinical Coding Coffee Shop - Christmas Edition

After an exhausting 9-hour shift all I wanted to do was go home, put on my twinkly tree lights and enjoy a glass of red wine curled up on the sofa. Perhaps even watch Love Actually for the billionth time. It’s my favourite Christmas film. This evening would not involve a glass of red wine, or my sofa, or Love Actually because I’d promised to meet my old coding colleagues at the Coffee Shop.


Coding Coffee Shop: November 2017 Tis the season for… Pumpkin Cake!

Tis the season for… Pumpkin Cake

It was 5:30pm and you would have thought it was 9 o’clock. I love everything about Autumn except for coming to work in the dark, and leaving in the same engulfing darkness. It was a classic Autumnal evening; the rain was heavy, and the wind was fierce, it made me think of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz. Luckily it was the same weather when I had set out for work in the morning, so I’d worn my suede knee boots, my orange high neck Aran jumper dress and a chunky scarf: Autumn clothes were my favourite.

I had arranged to meet up with Clare, who had recently left to take up her new clinical engagement role, and Mandy who was well into her new job at the Classifications service along with Benjamin who had now been contracting for over three months. I couldn’t wait to catch up with them all. It felt like years had passed but in actual fact Clare had only been gone a month!


Coding Coffee Shop: June 2017 First Impressions


You never get a second chance to make a first impression.


“Large hot chocolate please.” Charlotte rubbed her belly the way a genie rubs his lamp as she ordered.

She had just started maternity leave and was enjoying the excuse to eat for two.

“Cream and marshmallows with that love?”

 She barely heard the lady on the counter because she was fixated on the cakes. “Oh, yes please. Can I get one of these brownies too? Actually, I’ll take two -my friends are running late.”



Coding Coffee Shop: August 2017 Another One Bites The Dust


I had been clock watching since finishing my ham salad at dinner and finally it was 5pm.
