It's that time of the phase again...

It's that time of the phase on expedition again, when a team from Field Base called the "Loop" set off to visit our static sites (the community and environment projects) to bring cheer, re-supplies, sweets, blog messages and post from loved ones back home.

The Loop, consisting of our lovely accounts manager Helen, logistician Rhys and deputy programme manager Rob will be heading off to Alphas 3, 4, 1 and 2  starting this Sunday.

So post a message on the blog before Sunday and we'll make sure your messages will get through. Messages posted from deployment onwards will be brought on the Loop.

Dhaaaaru Bai!

Your sister jacked your fb and your status now says "I am swinging from tree to tree...I feel like Mowgli...weeeeee.....
no wait.... the tree fell :'( it couldn't take my weight...."

Hahaha. Ace! Anyway just thought I let you know that we'll be visiting Mac and Yolanda at fieldbase later this month. Dropping you a parcel, you might (or might not) get it by changeover

To Alex Ratcliffe

Hey sorry for not blogging you earlier I had every intention of doing so. You look great in the group photo and your allocation sounds amazing, I'm really hoping your having a great time. I am so jealous of you, I wanna go back to Borneo now....

I saw "bridesmaids" yesterday with some friends, I was the only guy who liked the film and the other guys removed all my man points...

So moving swiftly on how are you finding the raleigh rations (porridge and mock duck???)? The games eg Mafia? Hope you have some good ideas for the comedy show at the end of the phase :)

Wishing you all the best

For Dan Kirk, Alpha 4. Hey Dan, hope you're having a quality time at Sepilok with the bears. Weird that you're doing that project as well! It's hard work - why is the wood just so heavy? I hear you've met Lee, and I'm sure you're having a good time with Graham as well - both top lads. It's been one year since Jshafazee as well, the year 13s this year didn't even attempt anything! If I get round to it I'll send you a letter, but meanwhile, keep having an awesome time and I'll see you in September! Best of luck, Tom.

Hi Phil

Great to see a photo of you getting ready to leave for the island - hope you're having a fantastic time. Not a lot happening here; we had a huge thunder storm yesterday with hailstones thrown in. The lawn went quite white and the noise in the conservatory was deafening. Katharine has got a big sleep-over tonight which also promises to be deafening! Look out for a small parcel which will be on its way to you very soon. love Mum and Dad xxx

Sophie Given,

So glad to hear you're having such a good time. The pictures are great and it's good to see all the challenges you're getting up to! Are you managing to cope with the heat and the food? I can't believe you've spent this last week scuba diving, sounds amazing! Hope you have a good time trekking and not get attacked by too many insects. Things are quiet here just been working etc. All the best with this week missing you lots, Sarah xx
ps. Have you the sensation in your finger back yet?

Helen said...

Philip Gibbins, Alpha 2

I hope I didn't post this too late to get to you!
Everything is good here, just a bit lonely but keeping busy with Birte, Jo and Katy. You can expect post because I have written a letter!
I guess there's one thing you're dying to know - I passed my driving test! So I'm off driving everywhere at the moment... But don't worry - I am safe.

I'm pleased you got to do what you wanted to do and I hope you have an immense time! Am following the blog closely and the climate looks amazing! Have a lot of fun, hopefully my letter will arrive soon.

Things have been really boring here in Cambridge, and I have loads of work to do, especially this really stupid review paper I have to write on psychological resilience! Arrghh!

I really miss you and I hope you're having a good time. When you come back, we can celebrate you birthday in style at the Ritz Hotel for you birthday tea! Then we can go shopping (well, probably window shopping!!)

Don't forget that I do love you and I miss you so much. Be safe and have a fun time.

Lots of love,

You'll not be receiving a real letter from me because I'm your lazy big brother, however I'll concede to writing to you via the blog, also means that it'll be spelt right.

Also good back at home, I've been up in Newcastle for the past few days and have just popped into mu and dads to mow the lawn and stall some plants from the garden.

Keep having fun!

We missed you at the wedding! Sophie and Chris had a wonderful day, sun came out by the time we went to the church and there was a full moon and starry sky in the evening. Philip was amazing and seemed to manage the day really well, very good speech. Chris said some beautiful things to and about Sophie, we all cried buckets in the church, and ran out of tissues. Looking forward to the Ventiis coming on Thursday for a night or 2. Loz returns to Mauritius on Friday. Chris and Sophie will be on the opposite side of the island in a luxurious hotel. Lots of love
