Excellent work, Richard - great to see you in here, and opening up a specific thread - superb action-taking!
Everyone else - Richard is one of the toughest cookies it has ever been my pleasure to meet.
He has some very challenging memory issues, and finds this kind of work about as easy as climbing the Matterhorn with his hands tied behind his back - and yet nothing, nothing stops him from pushing on.
And because he NEVER gives up, he starts to win stuff - both Dee and I were delighted to see him taking real steps forward on the intensive, and on the last day I watched him use his Welsh (and deal with live, unpredictable answers!) in the pub and in the coffee shop - which was a point I didn't think he would be able to reach in the time we had.
Now I've sent him home with a bunch of painful stuff to carry on with, and challenged him to keep me posted in here on his journey - and as you can see, he throws himself straight into the challenge.
@tatjana - you'll be able to sympathise with a lot of the struggles Richard is going through! And Richard, if you look for 'Tatjana - progress reports' (try the magnifying glass search thing up there on the top right) you'll find some serious inspiration...
Richard deserves the warmest encouragement and support this amazing community can give...
