All being well I should be restarting BSL lessons very soon!

It can only be a matter of time before the local Deaf clubs are re-opening and I'll want to have some confidence back to meet and converse with other Deafies using sign.

It's been ages since I signed with anyone but the need to do just that gets stronger with each passing month. The sense of isolation just keeps growing as I never took the time to establish relationships with other signers in the past. That was a lot to do with lack of confidence due to my identity issues that are now being addressed. I'll discuss this elsewhere at some point.

I've approached my favourite teacher, Minna from SignHow, to see if she has any spare slots that I can take up. I hope to hear from her soon.

Update
I'm starting again next Tuesday afternoon via Zoom. We'll be concentrating more on conversation, current events and chit-chat rather than re-doing the BSL2 syllabus that I originally had in mind. This will be far better for me in terms of personal development and interacting with other Deafies socially.

Can't wait! :-)
