    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    I passed the Search and Rescue selection day. Should be starting training relatively soon and they want to get our intake operational ASAP to help increase coverage. Turns out not being able to drive isn't a deal breaker, bunch of people on the teams don't and carpool (obviously I'm more than happy to contribute to fuel and snack costs for drivers) to training and call outs.

    Yeah I came down with horrific nausea with my kidney stone years ago and remember reading about it being symptomatic with serious injuries. But all seems good, was still swollen this morning but no pain.

    I'd love to take the time off to rest it but we're already down a bunch of managers and manager is already doing me a massive favour giving me this weekend off before my leave. I'm sure it'll be fine, it hurt like hell at the time (as well as nausea and excessive sweating which worried me as was concerned it might've broken) but it's not painful right now even if I prod it it's more to the level of discomfort than pain. But I'm elevating and icing on my down time. Just glad it wasn't worse given I already had to push back my application last year.

    Missed a step this morning on my outdoor concrete ones at work. Landed on the ankle I fractured years ago (which still gives me grief from time to time but not much). It's swollen to twice the size. It's not stupidly painful though so I got lucky, especially as if I'd fallen the flight I'd be in hospital. However of course it happens five days before my SAR selection, four of which are working days.

    Received the news I am able to become a platelet donor and my blood type means it's universal donation of platelets (A neg can do that but not with whole blood). Means I can donate more often and can be used by a greater range of patients (obviously not those needing a whole blood transfusion). I've also just booked my train ticket for my Search and Rescue selection day next Saturday. Excited (and a little nervous, I think the biggest negative factor for me is not being individually mobile, where they run the training, and getting to staging areas, could be a problem, especially on Sundays, so here's hoping it's accessible or I can sort a lift with contribution to petrol). Must sort some sort of vehicle soon, even it it's a blooming hairdryer.

    Good news is with modern tech the move to a new phone is so much easier. Was worried about losing all my calender info as I use it a lot (I'm forgetful with dates) and had my apps organised for me. Used the Google backup and pretty much everything is fine apart from I lost some files in BattleScribe but I keep them on Dropbox as well. Wasn't expecting the apps to literally be laid out how they were. Also new case protects the camera lens too.

    I probably did it during my heavier duties so most likely whilst taking in a delivery of crates or something. But I've learned my lesson. Phone definitely away from keys.

    So the case I bought for my Galaxy S9 didn't protect the camera lens and so it got smashed (I think it's because I used to keep keys in the same pocket and always had better cases). Been broken for a while but thought I didn't have the time to be phoneless. Turns out the insurance means I'll get the replacement delivered tomorrow as the DPD driver collects the old handset meaning no downtime. Now to hunt down a more suitable case...

    Degloving is a horrific injury so well done to her keeping her cool.

    I forgot what thread this was...so that'll be my moan, occasional forgetfulness.

    I had some good deals this year (however I agree that you do need to watch for price hikes just before the event). Allied Risk Equipment had 45% off their Virtus Outdoors jackets meaning I was able to build a complete set of layers, as well as 20% off StrikeForce Energy. OLight UK had some decent deals on their torches across the weekend in which I got 40% off a pretty sweet torch. Also, I'm now a qualified first aider.

    Just read that on Sunday night some scumbags broke into a local fire station and stole emergency cutting equipment, this also had a knock on effect on scrambling the actual engines as well meaning there was a house fire that didn't receive response in time.

    Caught a thief at work on Sunday and he's having his investigation today. It's open and closed though given you see him swinging from the bottle on camera. He's been a problem employee for a while now but thanks to HR wanting everyone to play nice it's difficult to manage people sometimes. Also expecting my fancy new holdall today (mine is falling apart so wouldn't hold up on a journey) along with some new craghoppers trousers and shirts.
