Another week

Another week nearly done and things are still in limbo, so to speak.

Trying to organise some time off to go see my family, that would be good. Very good, actually. Started getting taught the basics of some new toys and got my grouping down below 100mm which I'm happy about.

Other than that, it's been more of the same. Our routine is fairly regular except that we get less organised exercise sessions now so I need to make sure I do some on my own time. Gotta stay on top of that.

Valentine's Day

It's Friday the 13th (cue spooky music) and I have remedial swimming first thing this morning. And today we're going to go climb a mountain in the woods.

Well, more of a hill really, but mountain sounds better. :)

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, and I have no present for you, can't even be there to give you a kiss. :(

Fairly busy week, first proper week here for me. First week was all settling in, second week I had tasking and was out for most of it. Third week I was in the thick of it. I can deal with this, I've been in limbo before.

Not a nice place to visit, definitely don't want to stay! Only a few months, just stay the course...

Little bleeder

Had symex all last week, being a simulated casualty for the medics. Lots of fake blood, coulple of add-on prosthetics to make the experience ... more visceral.

Was good fun and learnt a few things so overall a good experience. Met more new people but hopefully won't meet them again in medic / victim circumstances!

The other highlights this past week were the taxi running out of fuel around 100m from our destination last Sunday; and watching a little joey trying to fight or climb the climbing ropes early in the morning one day.
