    Default Proud O' you girl...

    I was following along when you were going through the whole training and I was cheering for ya!

    Congrats and good luck. All I can say is that it is inspiring to see someone try hard and then get ahead. I just hope I have instilled some of that in my own kids and can be as proud of them.

    Default hi there

    thanx for ur nice comments and encouragement. this forum and the uk one has helped me no end with all the worries i had about going to do the test. ive had alot of support along the way which is ace. couldnt of got where i am without it, so its greatly appreciated to all concerned. as for pictures, well my welding is still in the ruff but tuff category so i aint takin photos of that!! heres a wee pic of me tho. im on the left.
    i had a chuckle to myself with the girly welder is the man comment. loads of guys say ive got some b**ls for what i do. i really am a girl tho. i swear like a man when ma gear breaks down tho!!
    IM SO HAPPY!!!! finally feel like im getting somewhere now and im not going to be just a mig baby in the shipyards all my days.
    well its saturday nite and im sober!! wee dram for me then bed i think.
    thanx again all

    Lorraina, CONGRATULATIONS.

    I left the more experienced guys help you with the test questions, Im more into stick than I am mig or tig

    When the gear breaks down, thats normal, its also normal to talk to yourself as your welding or even arguing with yourself but once you start losing the arguments, then you need to come back here for help

    As far as pics, I cant speak for everyone here but I dont think anyone cares how ruff they look, none of us were born with a welding degree, we all learned somewhere. Take pics and post them, we would love to see your progress, Im sure a lot of guys could even post helpful hints

    Congratulations on passing your test I've been sand bagging this And I was out of town caught the conversation half way through. But you proved your salt and know you have the ticket to show for it. Be proud of that. It takes guts to do what you did. I know for a fact most would have given up.

    Default hi again

    ur comments are great!! u giv me confidence in succeeding. was speaking to my trainer the other nite an he was sayin his boss doesnt giv compliments about welders often, but said im going to make a great tig welder one day. my gaffer also said that too so im very happy with that. its just the bit in between thats frustrating cos i want to be good right away. no its not going to happen tho. practice makes perfect and theres no quick route there.

    ive ordered a laptop on the net but i dont think its going to arrive before i leave which is tomoro or tuesday so i probably wont be in contact for a while again till i get sorted. my next trip is 35 days so sorry if i dont speak till then. i will take pictures of the butts i do and put them on here when i get home again.

    im from scotland yes. not many girls doin the welding over here so its quite a lonely job working away. ive made some great male friends along the way that keep the bad ones away tho. luv working away on different jobs and learning new things. its great.

    well im going out tonight to see an old work mate. the whisky will be flowing for sure. (luv the stuff) will go just now but will try and get a wee comment in before i leave for wales. if i dont tho, thakyou all so much for ur kind and supportive words. uv got a big part to do with me getting where i am, i really mean that.
    take care and much luv
