Lifesaver

I had the first day of my first aid course run today. Although long (nine to five!) it was well worth it, and we learned all the usual suspects like mouth to mouth, the recovery positions and the like.

Amongst the main new concepts I picked up were regarding assessment, personal safety and communication - pretty obvious once we thought about it, yet would have probably been ignored if we hadn't been told.

But yes, the course is brilliant so far and I thoroughly recommend St John's Ambulance and our instructor, Winston (who happens to be a crazy guy). In fact I think I'm enjoying this more than Acting Class - although that could just be the hindsight effect talking. Either way you can be sure that you and any pretty strangers are now safe in my hands.
