Hi guys,

Well tomorrow is my first day at Tresham College Wellingborough on the Level 1 Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair.

I have considered all my options re blogging with updates and I've gone off the Twitter idea due to the inability to upload photos. SO if it's ok with the mods I will use this thread as my blog and update accordingly.

It's been a long time coming and as a 29 year old it's now or never so I've got my new work boots, my boiler suit and my safety glasses (compulsary Personal Protection Equipment AKA - PPE). This is what I have bought:


I can't believe it was this cheap. I bought it from BACA which are a safety workwear company in Northampton. The material is quite thin but this for me is a must as I sweat unbelievably!

Boots - can't upload a photo but I got a decent pair of Toetectors and they're JCB. Don't want anything heavy breaking my foot! lol

Goggles - cheapo from B&Q

I also have my stationery but that's boring stuff lol

So I'll update what I've learned hopefully after each day and thought it would be nice to discuss various bits.

I also want to get you some cool shots of the workshop. They have all the gear including lifts, tyre and wheel balancing machines, alignment machines etc.

Well peace out for now and I'll update you as and when stuff comes up :)

Cheers.
