Grati-Tuesday 2 June 2020
Lots of lovely letters this week from our grateful recipients - all of them are special, but I think you will agree that the first connects you with the recipient so much. I have been sitting here trying to write a preamble for a while and the words escape me.
So I am just going to let them speak for themselves.
Our family loves camping and we tend to go camping a couple of times a year during school holidays. We also try and escape to warmer climates so generally head up to Queensland for a few weeks at a time. Last year we went to North Stradbroke Island. This year in January we did something a little different and went to the Gold Coast and stayed at a Big 4 campsite near the Theme parks rather than our usual ‘roughing it’ camping trips. Now that all three of the kids are tall enough to get on the majority of rides, the plan was to have a fun filled family holiday and treat the kids to the magic and fun of all the theme parks knowing that I would deploy for 6 months . We even bought them the multi park passes and fast track entry as Christmas presents. Unfortunately on day two of our break I was recalled back to support Operation Bush Fire Assist and within 10 hours of the phone call I was on a plane back to to collect my field kit and then flew straight to Victoria. I was in Mallacoota and Orbost to help support the locals and also the ADF members who were supporting the first responders with clearance and engineering tasks. I was there until the end of January and then had at home before deploying the Middle East. stayed and finished the camping trip so at least the kids got to have lots of fun, although I was obviously sad not to experience their joy. So 2020 has been a big year for our family and when I get home I am really looking forward to just spending time with my children and husband and having a bit of a break from deploying to support everyone else. Time to focus on them and give support back to my wonderful family for the rest of the year!
Merci Beaucoup pour ma belle couette les details sont exquis
What a lovely Surprise I had today when I got this fantastic box. The quilt is Lovely and the laundry bag was very pleasant surprise I really wasn’t expecting it.
I really appreciate your hard work and the creativity which goes into these beautiful creations.
Getting such a fun chatty letter was a real bonus. Because of COVID it is very likely we will not be allowed off base to do any shopping or sightseeingparcels are a real boost.
Au revoir mon ami et rester en securite lorsque les Restrictions sont levees.
