A New Lifestyle

Sinclair said they had their first day of Drill now. A bit of a disaster, and probably funny to have seen. Everything is getting intense now and is all rush rush rush. Plus the days are very full now they have started some classes as well. His words, "If only I could stop thinking so much. It slows me down". Only early days yet, they should knock that out of him soon.

Apparently everything they say about the Mess is true..... "yummmy" >: p

He also found out that half the things he took with him are useless. If only they gave a more detailed list! Some of the times they go to the Mess they have to wear their suits or nice clothes and he wishes he had taken his slip on dress shoes to save time.

He was in the middle of folding his uniforms so the call was short. Plus it was nearly time for "Lights Out" again and he was buggered. He is not sure about when he would next be in contact, but they really encourage contact with family and friends. "Hello to all"

He managed to give me a quick call that night, just before "lights out" He said it was just a full admin day and then next was learning to Iron... hee hee. Sadly enough though he was not placed in a group with his mate Garreth which means he may not see much of him. But he is excited to be there.

Staff Cadet Swain

Well After a very long struggle Sincalir is now in training to become an Officer in the Australian Army. He was Sworn in this morning at 9:30 am and given a nice piece of paper. He did not even have to recite an oath, raise his hand or anything. I was slightly disappointed, but am very proud that he is doing what he has wanted to do for a very long time. You could not wipe the smile from his face.

This is your blog

I've given up. After playing with it and playing with it I've decided to take it back to something basic and easily maintainable for you.

Really, I just decided to stop trying to shape it. The problem was, I don't know what this blog will be about. I don't know what you'll use it for, how often you'll post or anything like that. It was crazy of me to try, because I just can't imagine what lies ahead for you.

So this is the end of my involvement here. Now this is yours. All I ask is that you try to post something every month or so, just so we know you're still alive.

Most importantly, I want you to know that we love you, we will miss you and we hope you have the time of your life. We can't even begin to imagine how you're feeling right now and what's going on around you, but we know you will make the most of it.

See you again soon,
