My exams are done. Passed 100%. That’s not trying to be gallus, you have to get that mark or you don’t pass. And I did have to have two goes at a couple of questions over the last couple of days. You can tell the people who write the questions aren’t engineers, what with their fancy big city talking and modern ways of mangling the language and creating questions that read like a free online translation of an ancient Japanese text.
So, that’s me for another five years. But I’m looking at expanding into other areas: solar; mini domestic wind turbines. So there may be more reading and writing to be done.
Now my mind is free and turns back to the WHW and the lack of a definite kitlist. The good news is that the bulk of the Optimus test kit has arrived, and it’s really rather natty. I’m going to try it out over the weekend and decide what to take with me on the bigger walk next weekend. The folding spork makes me smile evey time I pick it up and show it to whoever is within earshot (eyeshot?). They don’t understand, that haven’t had to hunt for their normal spork in the dark at the bottom of their rucksack and failed, then had to eat their dinner with a flat rock and twig and cried themselves to sleep with the shame of it like we have.
Also a splendid outfit from Dale of Norway is going out for a spin. Merino leggings and zip neck long sleeve. The top is navy blue with ice blue sleeves, I nearly cried with joy when I took it out of the box. It’s either a Space 1999 jumper or a 70’s olympic track suit top. I love it.
But first, some sitting down is in order.
