    Default Officially a chippy

    Yay! Finally got my Cert 3 in Carpentry!

    For a while now I've been working with a guy from Bendigo Tafe to get through my trade qualifications. I've handed in loads of pics and documents relating to work over the last several years and studying units that were required. Yesterday sat down for a 4 hour question and answer session (some of that prep). Grueling but well worth the effort.

    Next stage... Builder?

    I think I know how you feel. After working in kitchens for 20 years I went and finished my apprenticeship as an adult student, did the 7 weeks of schooling over my annual leave and knocked it off in 2 years. Wonderul feeling and many congratulations.
    Beers on you>>?????

    I hear ya. It doesn't make any difference from one day to the next (bit like birthdays) but it feels good anyway. If you wish to drop in, beers are most definitely on me. Any time.
