Fidget: most of them are children, in fact I bet a good 95% are children. I'll be good and not get ranty about that arse hole of a MP who jabbered away to stop them discussing teaching first aid to school children. It is incase that in modern society there are so many people that don't know how to do CPR.
One thing for sure if I hope that if he ever needs first aid its a rugby player doing the chest compressions. He'll live but my god will those ribs hurt for a few months.
This year I'm aiming to get my number up to two thousand knowing CPR: we don't charge to learn and I even pay all the costs of us going out to a local scout / guide group to keep it free for them.
Well I went out for a walk with Reggie. I'm convinced he dropped his favourite ball down that steep bank deliberately knowing that if he whimpered and cried and howled enough that eventually I'd slide down on my bum to retrieve it. I very nearly couldn't get back up and was contemplating following the river until I found a bank I could climb back up! Back now in my pjams while his lordship snoozes on the sofa besides me.
At least dinner tonight is easy: I've defrosted one of the meals that I made in bulk the other weekend!
Stay warm everyone: and don't do anything too foolish!
