Today is the first Shodan Assessment for 2014. The Grading will be held on February 9th in Wellingborough. Wonder how many will want to try or Shodan?

On the 'foot' front, things are looking up notwithstanding the feeling of having a car parked on your chest when I woke on Sunday morning. The pain made me forget about my foot and when I got up this morning both pains appear to have gone. So a little more rest should see me alright into February.

We have seen about eleven new members this year so far; as long as the students have the confidence, quite a few trying for Shodan too.

Good luck to you all in 2014.

Don't forget the curry on the 25th January.

Unexpected events

It's been over 5 weeks now and the injury to my foot has still not healed. I am more than certain that I must have broken or fractured a bone in my foot. At least I can walk now, it's just putting weight / pressure on that leg or twisting. Have to take it easy if my intention is to attend the 4 day course in May!

The Christmas period has, as usual, taken its toll on me in two different ways:
1) Not as fit as I should be
2) Put some weight on but not as much as I used to so going to have to watch my food intake - again!

Starting to get back into the swing of things and looking forward to seeing my students again.

Oh and the Curry on 25th!
