Really, February 5th? I gotta get better at updating this.
So, everyone is back to what passes for normal in our house, which is a nice change of pace.
I've been a bit busy with work lately, and prepping for my 2 weeks of active duty which I'm doing now. Those of you who know me on Facebook know where I am, but I kept the rest of you fine folks in the dark. Sorry 'bout that.
Left DC on Saturday last for a fortnight in Jolly Olde, just in time to miss the 9 inches of snow that I'm sure crippled DC. Talk about timing... I'm in the same place I went last year in East Anglia. A bit colder this time of year, but I'm not complaining. I guess I could complain, but it wouldn't seem, you know, proper. The base wi-fi was down for the better part of 2 days, but we all make sacrifices for the sake of the Service.
Of course, it's not all Beer and Skittles over here. Ale and Chips is more like it. I've managed to PT every day, which I fear is hardly putting a dent in the gallon or so of beer that I feel compelled to drink whilst I'm here. General Order #1, never heard of it around here.
Seriously, I miss The Wife and Kid terribly, but the email updates from home are wonderful.
I hope to have some pics up soon. Until then, cheerie-o and all that.
