So today’s blog is a short one I am afraid. I am in the office/centre and it is all go. The wonderful Marsia is faciliating her Digital Skills workshop for carers and digital skills classes are coming back to the Carers Centre soon, so watch this space and if you feel you are in need of learning then let us know.
I will of course do a fuller blog on friday as I mentioned before I am on leave next week as I am moving home. It has taken months to sort out and Solicitiors make a lot of money for very little (rant over). By the way I am literally moving round the corner from my current home.
