Fit for Duty...


A little while ago I broke my cheek bone in an unfortunate rugby incident. For those of you thinking ouch, that sounds like it hurt, I can confirm that it does, a lot! This meant that I couldn't do too much for a while and a few things had to stop until I was mended. One of these things unfortunately was lifeboat. There is nothing worse than sitting in the crew room watching your mates disappear down the slip without you.


Well this week i was given the all clear to return to active service or "fit for duty" by our LMA (Lifeboat Medical Adviser I think?) After a thorough prod and a poke I was off out the door, letter in hand, smile on face!


Seeing as I have the blog this week I thought I'd take this oppurtunity to thank everyone who helped me out during my injury. The doctors and nurses at Poole Hospital,who do an amazing job under often difficult cicustances, friends and family and anyone who popped in offering tea and sympathy. Most of all thanks to my girlfriend Kim for putting up with me and bringing soup. I really am an awful patient!
