Work/Life Balance

There is a lot of discussion about work life balance but for me it's not that simple.  This is a the corner of Waiting Area K outside Linear Accelerator (LINAC) Room 6 in the Northern Centre for Cancer Care where I am receiving my treatment.  This is a major life event for me and most people, and yet I am sitting at work!  I commissioned this facility earlier this and know it very well, almost down to the room numbers.

The rack of pamphlets behind are produced by Macmillan Cancer Support which is a UK National Charity.  I worked for Macmillan from 2005 to 2008 so I know that organization and the pamphlets well.  So for me at the moment the split between 'work' and 'life' is not that great.  I much prefer to enter a hospital as an employee rather than a patient!  The expression in Britain is 'a busman's holiday' but I am sure other countries have their own idiomatic expressions. (Btw the Christmas tree will be gone by tomorrow as it is Twelfth Night - Epiphany).
