Legally, Classy Too

Well yesterday was the culmination of my three day course with AMS in Hamilton to pass my Class 2 license. I achieved that an on the way passed a couple of unit standards to add to my collection.  They are 17574: Operate a rigid vehicle to meet the requirements of a full Class 2 license, 7 credits at Level 3 and 24089: Demonstrate knowledge of fatigue management, work time and driver logbook requirements, 5 credits at Level 3.
This was a relatively intense 3 days, including the first day studying for Class 2 learners license. So was interesting getting the brain back into learning mode. Am very glad that a) I spent the week before studying as instructed and b) have still got enough brain cells to retain what I study. So am pleased that I managed to ace each assessment without any redos! 
So the brain was total mush and I then went up to Spring Hill Correctional Facility and delivered a 1 1/2 hour workshop on Needs and Wants, Goal setting and Easy Cashflow to a group of 9 men. Must have done well as the feedback was just wonderful and I saw some lightbulb moments during the session, which is always a great thing.
So currently I am writing this at 2am as I crashed about 7.30 pm and am now wide awake! 
Now my brain is going at 90 km/h thinking about cleaning house, sorting out final stuff to keep and save and It's Just Over 24 Hours To Pick Up!  I am starting to get very excited! 
Spaghetti Bol in Walton tonight after another workshop in Mt Wellington today and the one more sleep and then a drive to Kinlock to pick up The Fredrock Cafe.
More to come..........
