I have really enjoyed it. Im so glad I made the move. Your wait will be over in no time. I would recommend getting a visit before if you can. I didnt get this option and its worked out ok for me but I have seen others that the visit has put them off.

Apart from a thick skin and sense of humour I didnt really need anything. We got provided with everything including a notebook the first day. I took my driving licence which was my id to get in and out for the first couple of days while our id was made up and lunch. Ive been going with an empty bag apart from that incase I needed to bring anything home. I have loads of uniform and I didnt get a full compliment so god knows how much you should get. The only other thing is dont worry about your shoes/boots being shiny. If they are shiny the customers know you are new and have some fun but I enjoyed some of the stuff they said. Ive come from the motor trade and been called worse by friends so nothing drastic so far. The only bit of advice really is if you do get scared dont show it and dont lie. If you do they will remember. Most have a laugh and joke with you anyway so nothing to worry about really but always be on guard.

You are in a different group to me kryptonian. I only know thats as your in the hatfield group. It does mean weve done a good job with personal security though.

Well day 2 done. It's a hell of a lot of stuff to take in but thankfully have a great lecturer/teacher. It's not put me off yet!
Seems like a great bunch in my class.
A little go over abbreviations and meanings tonight then early night. Got a cheeky pint to read with too :slin:

I know the feeling. So much information to absorb today. Its still been enjoyable though, Im just trying to organise stuff in my brain so I can somehow memorise it all.

I get it overall, as in rhyme and reason. It's the specifics that's worrying me. Certainly not worrying but want to get it right on paper. It's common sense when talking and explaining it. When it comes to finding the exact words to fill in the blanks.....
Bloody loving the banter and laughter!!

I had such a laugh on dinner today mixing with there groups and maybe yourself. Its good to see that somehow they have managed to find a group of us with a bloody good sense of humour. I have just been writing as much down as I can to try and get it to sink in which seems to be working so far but my head was abit frazzled today by the end. The banter and games in the class are helping keep me alert and pushing on though.
