    I would suggest a VitD supplement if you don’t already take one. If you do, perhaps it’s time to ask your GP for a test to check that you are getting an adequate amount of VitD

If they couldn’t get anyone to work the event, that might have been a hint that they seriously need to change the format. It won’t be such a problem in the future though.

As long as you understand how the front of a vehicle moves when you steer, reversing vans and small trucks is easy. I used to have to reverse a 3 tonner into a warehouse then make an immediate turn down the side of the building and I can understand how artic drivers can reverse with such accuracy.
