Some time working on my next grant application, and some bike riding. Thursday and Friday were spent on Week 1 of my new residency project.
The really interesting news was from chatting with one of the staff about my upcoming residency, and what I planned on doing. He asked how much I was budgeting on spending on welding training, and then mentioned that he’d been teaching and assessing welding for something like 20 years.
I’d been planning on this byzantine process of travel down to Brisbane, and hideously expensive training, this guy is offering to do it for about half the price, and lives about 10 minutes away.
So, with that in mind, my grant application is looking a lot healthier.
