Right now it is 7AM and I have been up for only a few minutes. I was tempted to stay in bed a little longer, but last night I forgot to put a parcel out for the courier to pick

I mentioned earlier today that I had managed to burn the knuckles on my left hand on my soldering iron. Thankfully the burn is not hurting – not even the low level pain that I was expecting for many more

Ouch. I think that is the best way to some it up. I was doing some warranty work on some tracking units today and I managed to hit my knucles on my left hand with my soldering iron. I now
