  1. This sounds so cool! I’ve just recently embarked on some courses designed to update my qualifications etc and they are so intensive I seem to spend most of my time preparing and sending in assignments! My world is revolving around them now! lol😉 But this course sounds great so I shall certainly be chasing it up🙂

    I hope all is well with you, it’s been a long time since you were last on here! Missed you, and it’s lovely to see you back🙂
