“Knife before wife before life” a surgeon’s mantra and guiding principle of where work should come in the order of importance. I am a busy surgeon in a UK hospital most of the time and I blog about whatever I like relating to work, family life, being a woman in a mostly male world etc.
I have 3 children and a dog at the last count, with no plans to add to that number. Mr KBW, my husband, is occasionally referred to in this blog. He is in a sensible job and doesn’t work weekends or nights or stay up until 5am finishing presentations.
I work in Bighospital, which does everything, we like to think that we are the centre of the surgical universe and that we do things properly. Chief amongst the Bighospital surgeons are the Great Leaders, who teach and inspire. Not all Bighospital surgeons are great leaders. Bighospital is located in Bighospitalburgh, a large UK city and where I live and work.
I am a liberal, left wing, NHS supporting, Daily Mail hating liberal who likes running and food. If I wasn’t a doctor and a surgeon I would have been a PE teacher or a chef or, more likely, an actress. I like being very busy, ideally the centre of attention, to do something that is important and to feel like I help people and am appreciated.
The blog is very eclectic but broadly arranged into knife (posts about surgery and medicine), wife (posts about relationships and marriage) and life (everything else).
Thanks for reading and commenting.
