So many of you have been asking, so surprise, say hello to my new office! I have accepted a position as an Intensive Care Flight Paramedic, working on a helicopter. The process included a relatively rigorous fitness testing and an interview etc. The fitness requirement was the same benchmark for males and females and started off with a timed 8km pack run with a 10kg back pack, up a mountain. (So now you all know why I was doing weighted vest runs for the last little while 😂). At 55kg that's just under a 5th of my body weight. Then a strength exercises and a water component (I won't go into details as I'm not sure I'm allowed to). I normally don't broadcast my successes, I tend to quietly celebrate them with my closest. But I'm really proud of this, so here it is. There's so many people I need to thank who have assisted me in this, which I will individually. Thank you @f45_training_rosedale for improving my fitness, your training helped me pass my test 🤙. Those who know me (properly know me), know I don't ever back myself and often talk myself out of stuff even if I'm more then capable. So I also want to thank myself. For putting in the work, for backing myself and going through with it. You know how I asked whether I should leap a little while ago on my story? Well this is the leap. And I did it.

Another new addition to the Penge Sculpture Trail, ‘Untitled (Where Have All The Flowers Gone?)’ is the work of celebrated local artist Cosmo Chancer. ‘It’s a comment on consumer culture, global warming and probably Brexit,’ Chancer explains. ‘Let’s get real here: we’re all just overturned trolleys left abandoned on the wasteland of life. We don’t stand a bloody chance - unless we act now!’ To coincide with the sculpture’s unveiling, Chancer has released 200 smaller limited edition copies, price £999 plus VAT. Overnight delivery available. #pengesculpturetrail#cosmochancer#penge#livingthedream
