This week I have been mostly...

....being feral in the bush!



Term finished with Army Cadets on bivouac, which was quite a nice way to finish up. We were incredibly fortunate with the weather, and I was delighted to remain leech free throughout the camp. I was FMO (Food Management Officer), so responsible for ensuring that I didn't kill any cadets by issuing them with rations they were allergic to, and was very relieved to succeed in this task.



Back home now and on holidays for a couple of weeks. A great development in the last day or so has been The Boy deciding that he wants his own copy of Wargames Illustrated. He practically lives in his batman costume at present, but has also started taking a copy of WI wherever he goes. Perhaps coincidentally (or perhaps not), the issue he has taken possession of is number 291, in which my good friend and all round Excellent Bloke, Paul of the Man Cave, has an article about training his son to be a gaming buddy. Hopefully my own socialisation of Bat Boy is succeeding...

  4. I was stuck on Leech free, shudder. Good to hear that the disciple is coming along. My little Sith Apprentice still needs some more work, but he is my main gaming partner.

  7. Excellent news all round good Sir - remember that 10% losses are acceptable on camps both Scouting and Cadets, and that good parasite stories never go out of fashion!

    Fantastic to see the young Padawan with some great reading material :-)
