Day 1, week 1   Leave a comment

H left yesterday, daughter waving him off, me trying not to cry too much until she’d gone to bed. To her, Daddy has ‘got lots of work to do’ that’s why he’s going to be away a little longer. Perhaps I should think about it in the same terms, it might save my eyes from looking so awful. Thank God it was sunny, I kept my sunglasses on most of the day as I cried pretty much anyone mentioned his name today.
It’s a bit of a relief that he has finally gone, this has been hanging over us for months now and there’s only so much preparation that you can do. Something always gets missed with things that need to get done before he goes away. This will be the longest deployment, but at least it’s to somewhere safe (well ish) and there is skype to keep in touch with. Thinking about getting an iPhone4 which you can video call on. Last time he was away, I bought a new car and got someone to decorate some rooms in the house. Retail therapy always helps. :o)

The very beginning….   Leave a comment

A very good place to start, according to Julie Andrews. I’ve decided to start a blog about my life as a serivce wife as my Husband is due to leave for a 6 month deployment on Sunday,  or is it Monday, I’m not sure, they never tell you til the last minute as it all adds to the ‘excitment’.  It’s not anywhere too dangerous, but I think sometimes ‘civvy’ wives forget how lucky they are to have their blokes coming home every night. I hope that this will keep my mind sane from the rigours of having two children and a job.

He is currently out on a last night out, hopefully not getting so drunk as to deny me a lie in in the morning, and after a glass of wine or two, I thought that this would be a good idea to document this deployment, our longest separation yet.
