    What a day!

    Hi all,

    Some good news from me for a while.

    Wednesday morning I met my instructor too help get me though my forklift license, I was a nervous wreck and as the day came nearer and nearer I was thinking what the heck am I doing as I don’t have a drivers license so how am I going too move this thing around, so chat to my instructor for ages before we even started and he said I see something in you so that was a good start, done all the introduction stuff watching real fatality’s due too forklift accidents, after that had dinner then was just driving round getting used to the thing.

    Thursday came along and again spoke ages too my instructor mainly about Darebee, done some theory questions and then went back out on the truck started off with figure of 8 forwards and backwards round a couple pallets done that for ages then had dinner then moved on to moving stuff around and getting the feel of the truck with loads on it.

    Then too today woke up at 4:30am as was thinking about the test and getting nervous so was absolutely knackered so done the first part of my theory and passed with 90% had a coffee then went out and done some practice for the test for well over an hour, after that stopped parked up the forklift had another drink then done part 2 of the theory and passed with flying colours, then got on the truck and done my practical if I got 40 points it would of been a fail but I finished with 23 points so passed 🥳 he said in a normal working environment 10 of those points would be non existent so realistically only got 13 points.

    I am so glad that I have achieved this especially as I am don’t actually drive and the instructor helped me with building my confidence and at the end of it all I feel like a stronger person in general and after he went I done more forklift work on my own, I can’t believe how much I have changed in a few days especially as was sooo nervous.

    well that was longer then expected lol

    Raven1s that's brilliant! Change, even physical change, is always from the inside out. You have a great foundation to build on.

                      Our branch supervisor got promoted to branch manager at another branch about 4 weeks ago, so I have been in limbo wondering if I would get the job?

                      today I got told in about 3 weeks I will officially be the branch supervisor for the branch I am in, my manager has said that I have 3 months too see if I like the job if not then I can step down at anytime.
                      so that for me is another good thing in my work for me over the past month, feels like for years I have been clawing away at things then all of a sudden all
                      these things happen too me
