Snow days

Finished the second training course at Harborne, met some fantastic people and really focused on the work that will be done. It's quite hard to concentrate on preparing for development work with all the practical arrangements that are needed before I go. I'm doing my CBT tomorrow - with snow on the ground. Brilliant training for sub-saharan conditions! Home for christmas now, who knows where I'll spend christmas next year!

Counting down

6 weeks of work to go.... I leave for The Gambia on the 4th Feb. I am so ready to do this. Got SKWID coming up 17th Dec, then my motorbike training starts on the 22nd. I cannot believe I will be riding a motorbike!
At least I'm not bored anymore!
