Dear Maree and family,
Thank you very much for the laundry bag. It was a lovely surprise just before Christmas. I love the bright colours and especially the Australian flags. I'm working with a lot of people from the British Army so it will help me remember where I'm from! Despite being winter the weather is actually quite good. It is generally 10 - 15 C during the day and -4 at night. Our accommodation is a bit cramped but comfortable. I share with a female British Captain and we get along well. Christmas day was good here and the Aussies got out and played cricket which was fun. We had a visit from our Commander and a great Christmas lunch as well.
I hope your family had a great Christmas. Enjoy your holidays! Happy New Year!
