Things you wish you'd known / bought / fibbed about / done before RMAS?

Excuse if this is a spiv question, but.

I've found myself in the lucky place of being offered a slot on the CC. What things do smart people buy /do / prepare for but that isn't in any welcome pack, and would make the process of acclimatisation in the first term a little more pleasant.

To start the ball rolling;

A bluetooth (Steps) headset so one can talk on the phone whilst ironing.

The best iron your pocket money can afford.

The ability to effectively communicate using the English language would be a good place to start.

A cuddly toy, a teas maid, a generation game wobbly statue, candelabra, a holiday, a set of knives....

You're 27 hours early fella.

Traditionally "wind up" time is a Friday afternoon.

I wish I'd shagged Cindy Crawford, Elle MacPherson and Christy Turlington before I'd gone to Sandhurst; it was tough coping with their insatiable demands during leave weekends.

A sense of humour and a bit of grit and determination will see you through. The rest is just 'nice to have'.

Set of sliding doors and a conveyor belt?

First term?

What you're issued and what's on the kit list - some of the kit list items are bone but you never know when some evil ****** might as to see them on inspections!

You've hit the nail on the head with a bluetooth headset so you can use the phone while bulling/ironing/otherwise making things shiny but the I wonder if those with the world's most expensive iron actually got along any better than me with my normal priced one...I don't think they did.

Sense of humour, patience and an expectance of the unexpected will also be handy. And a funny duvet cover for when you're allowed to use it - gets the DS taking the piss out of you instead of looking toooooooo closely at everything else. And compeed if you're the type of fanny that gets blisters all the time in issued boots.
