Lieve Emilie,
Gauw even voordat ik weer achter de pc moet voor mijn werk. Ik zie net dat de Loop naar je toe komt met lekkere dingen en ik hoop 1 brief van mij. Ik zal er vandaag nog een schrijven, alleen er gebeurt hier niet zo veel dus kan ik ook niet veel melden. Loeloe is nog steeds bij ons, ze is een dappere magere hond, ze wacht op jou denk ik.
Ik ga morgen met Micheline shoppen in den Bosch en vooraf misschien even een kopje koffie bij nicht Marieke 'doen'. Alles verder onder controle, ik was zondag in het 'tassenmuseum'in Amsterdam, moet je ook zeker eens naar toe! Erg leuk. Verder kreeg ik nog een sms van Celle die op de Tefaf rondliep, die vroeg of ik er ook was. Helaas daar was ik dus niet, papa wel, maar ze hebben elkaar niet gezien.
Liefs mama

Hoi Huub,

Geweldig dat jij belde voor mijn verjaardag. Ik kreeg verder van Watse uit Bangkok, Kees uit Italie smsjes. Verder de nodige onverwachte nationale felicitaties; hartverwarmend! Vanavond trakteer ik de familie op een dineetje in Haarlem (Vis-Ko). Hopelijk hebben ze oesters. Bij het snorkelen vind je ze misschien daar ook wel. Informeer maar eens.
Ik ben trouwens benieuwd of je aantekeningen maakt van je belangrijke impressies en wederwaardigheden; een soort logboekje. Els Evers had het daar ook over tijdens ons gesprek daar. Interessant voor later, voor jezelf en toekomstige keuzes en voor ons natuurlijk.
Je doos met kleren etc. staat klaar op de pooltafel.
Mickey is vermoedelijk gedekt door Potter, de hond van de Hannema's. De morning after prik is inmiddels toegediend.
Nu ik ga weer aan het werk. Geniet van je verblijf daar. Allerlei mensen informeren naar je en zijn wel wat jaloers dat zij zoiets niet hebben meegemaakt.
All the best!
Hubert

Hey Izzi (Alpha 4)

Two thirds of your amazing Raliegh adventure done, one last adventure to come. I hope you enjoy the trek and beach as much as your last two stages. I have been telling everyone who asks what an amazing time you've been having. Please post your photos soon - we're dying to take a peek.

The exciting news is that your lovely cat Bonnie is pregnant!! We think she's due at Easter so you'll be coming home to a house full of kittens. We're keeping an eye out for the dad - we just hope he's cute!

We put a small parcel in the post to you last week - enjoy and look forward to hearing what you've been up to! Missing you! Much love Mum, Dad, Hannah and Ollie xx

Hi Jamie
Can't see you in the alpha 1 group photo, hope all is going well. What a beautiful place it looks and the accommodation looks like a vast improvement on the goats shed.I gather you have been to a wedding, I hope you are taking lots of photos as I am looking forward to seeing everything when you get home. Still missing you loads. love mum

millyloat said...

Frankie,
Sent you another masterpiece of a letter, I hope you enjoy. Though I held back the chocolate, mainly cause sending you chocolate almost eats into 1 hours work at Trotters, and as much as I love you . . .
Hope alls good in Borneo, guessing your onto the trek next (ha . ha . ha) Hope your turning into a she-hulk butch girl with huge guns, and i mean that in the most endearing way possible.
Ive been going to sunbeds in the hope that ill equal your tan when we rendezvous in 1 MONTH.

If you don't ring me at this changeover ill cry.

Cant wait, miss you loads xxxxxxx

Lieve Charlotte,

We hebben net weer een brief van je gekregen! We zijn bezig er één terug te schrijven, maar die is nog niet af. We hebben het druk met van alles en nog wat; ik uiteraard met werk,oma en Jan en de tuin, papa met het werk en Judith met school. Haar proefwerkweek is goed gegaan, alleen vandaag had ze Nederlands literatuur en dat was lastig. Morgen is de installatie van Jaap in Groningen, dus daar gaan we heen en Judith logeert bij Jochem. Liefs, mama

Hier een berichtje van Maike en Ineke.We zitten op de verjaardag van Jorrit en je wordt natuurlijk vreselijk gemist.Snik.
Hier schijnt heerlijk de zon.
Vorige week uitgebreid mijn zwager(Gareth) uit Londen gesproken.Die kende raleigh heel goed,want zowel zijn broer als 2 goede vrienden hadden hier gewerkt.
Gareth heeft goed zijn best gedaan Lieselotte enthousiast te maken.Hij was helemaal weg van de organisatie.
Hoop dat alles goed met je gaat en dat je een geweldige tijd hebt,maar dat lijkt me wel.
Heel veel groetjes en liefs ook voor Emilie.Ik heb vorige week zaterdag met haar moeder op het hockeyveld gesproken.Hebben we lekker over haar geroddeld.
Veel groetjes,
Maike Andeweg en Ineke Groen

My darling Richard (alpha 6)

It's 10.30 pm and James, Ben and Josh have just turned up at our place dressed in suits, thinking you were already back home. It's now official - they're really weird. Have to say having the doorbell ring at that hour was a bit scary - especially as they walked up - which meant that Cheadle and Bitsy didn't go off. We told them you would be back on 18 April. They were probably bored. Hope the diving is going well and you remember all your training.

Met George's dad the other day - he found me in the ward when I was with Nana. It was nice that he took the time to search us out. He was in between operations.

Love Mum xxx

Hi Jamie
Just thought I'd let you know that Josh got barred from the moon and bell last night! I tried to buy him a coke when we wernt eating.Poor Josh barred at 14! they had a sign up saying recruiting staff, so hopefully you should be fine when you get back. Hope all is well at kampung rugading. looking forward to seeing you in pictures at changeover. Love you. Mum.xxx

Hi Tash
Bet you will be sad when this part of your trip is over, it looks fantastic, and sounds as though you have met some lovely people. You still have lots to look forward to.
The weather here is amazing, lovely and sunny and warm, everyone on the beach and surfing.
Miss you so much.
Love you so much too.

Nou, dat van dat roddelen is niet waar hoor!
Ik heb vandaag heerlijk gegolft, nou ja, best aardig. Voor het eerst 18 holes mét de draagtas. Ben nu gevloerd!
Hier alles goed, vandaag super lente weer, veel fluitende vogels en een heerlijk zonnetje. Helaas maar voor even, vanaf morgen wordt het weer slechter. Dinsdag (als jij belt...?) kan er zelfs natte sneeuw en hagel komen..... BRRR, heb daar helemaal geen zin meer in.

Dag liefje, ik hoop dat je ons dinsdag te pakken krijgt!
Dikke zoen, mama

Hi Haz,
Good to hear a bit of news from the loop. Sounds like you are having a wonderful spiritual, physical and social time. Spring has sprung hear in England and we are cheeping and flapping at school in preparation for Easter. Ed’s already dreaming of his Cadbury fest! Don’t worry, we won’t forget you! Si is away at the moment, unfortunately Luke has been unwell and by all accounts they have not been able to complete all their gigs and have been a bit down hearted. What would Buddha say?
TIme is flying by and soon you’ll be off adventuring. Keep up all the good work.

‘The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.’ Buddha
Enjoy the present!
Haz take care – tons of love , hugs and XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

(By the way it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow!)

Hi Jamie,
Loving the pictures of the countyside around Kampung Rugading, and looking forward to seeing some photos of the dam project so we can see the type of thing you have been doing. The accomodation looks much more spacious than the goat's shed. Can't believe that it is only 4 weeks until you come back, time has really flown. Exiting sports news - Tigers have won 5 in a row and now top the Premiership!!! Hoping that another trip to Twickenham is on the cards!
Weather here has been dry & warm, so lots of digging done, but still plenty left for you to do on the allotment when you get back. Hope you have recieved the letters.
Missing you loads
Dad, Mum & Josh

Hi Jamie, like your Mum we couldn't find you in the Alpha 1 picture, Mum didn't think to ask whether you were off on honeymoon? I guess some of your mates back home will have some ribald suggestions as to where you were hiding. The geography looks stunning and there looks to be plenty of "environment" in which to work.
