That was a long day. By 0900 this morning I was already on a Landrover heading out of base and up to the Neuadd valley. I’ve spoken of the Neuadd valley before, but this time there was no snow. We had a missing 24 year old man, who’d gone out to take photographs of the […]

There’s an area call in progress here at the moment – I’m a little bit busy at work, so can’t attend this one. *sulk*

I blame . I’ve been studiously avoiding drinking coffee on a regular basis since I came back from the US in 2000 – mainly to avoid the stinking headaches I’d get on Saturday mornings from the caffeine withdrawal. However,  has brought in some particularly nice hazelnut flavoured coffee into the office “for general use”. It’s […]

What a great start to the day. Oh, look out, make sure you don’t slip on the pool of sarcasm that’s dripping off that last statement… I’m still at home at the moment, having been called on my way and sent back home to try and work out what’s going on with all of our […]

We’ve just had a quick callout, a search though it’s been quickly stood down as the misper was found. I have scant details at the moment as I left my pager behind today – my kit was in disarray last night, my diesel state this month is poor and I have shedloads of work to […]

So that was a busy weekend. Friday night Sean and I went out for dinner to Fwrrwm Ishta in Machen, which is a cracking good quality restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the food was incredibly good and the atmosphere although busy, was very welcoming. Saturday was the stag night of one of the lads from […]

I was reading this at lunchtime today and it came to me why I don’t do the geeky things that I promise people I will do at home. Why my PC, despite having a bust motherboard, is still lying in pieces some 3 months after I took it apart. Why I have a server that […]

It’s been a nice weekend. Sunday we decided to get a few things done, so I measured up the Window in the spare room and headed off to Ikea in the bay to pick up some blinds. We passed Pizza Hut on the way which prompted a typically-student-like response from Sean, so after mooching around […]

While up at base last night Mark and I were talking and he showed me a thank you letter we received from the family of the little girl in this callout. With the kind permission of the author, I’ll reproduce it here for your reading pleasure: Hi Mark I would like to thank you and […]

Some time ago, one of the guys from the team talked to us about the Welsh Ambulance Service Community First Responder schemes. More recently, reading a post from Tom, I was reminded of the scheme and thought about joining. With the medical training the Mountain Rescue gave me, I have a reasonable knowledge of the […]
