Goodies from the Hospital

I was excited about this morning, not about getting up at 06:00 but going for my casting. Nothing I haven’t done before but this was for my first long term socket, which will hopefully make life easier and resolve some, if not all, my issues.

Feeling under the weather

Thursday and Friday was the latest installment of the Practical Skills For Business Course. It was great to see Andrew and the Group again but I really didn’t feel with it at all. We covered Business Management and Operations on the Thursday and Costing & Pricing on the Friday, I managed to get through both […]
