    Happy December...and an absense explanation...

    Hi all,

    How are we all this December evening? I hope you've all had lovely Christmasses and are keeping warm in our wintery weather.

    I haven't been around much since OH went back on the 1st of the month...have found it pretty difficult to be honest and mainly been hibernating around working hours. I know this doesn't make you feel any better, or make time go any quicker, but I don't know whether it's December, this half of the tour being longer, rubbish weather or goodness knows what else but it's hard at the moment. Really hard. Not even 'lets get on RP and listen to some like minded souls' hard. Cripes.


    Anywho, I'm back and fully intent on becoming more bouyant now and hereafter.

    Any gossip? Mines literally anything with a more than 20% proof.

    Ta, Becky x

    Awww becs, glad to see you've made it back here eventually. Don't make any apologies for finding it hard, I think with me, I geared myself up for seeing him again so much that I was shocked that it hit me like a ton of bricks when he went back- he got his R&R after 2 months so had another four to go.

    You don't need me to tell you it will get better, you know the score.

    But glad to see you're back- December is always a bad month.

    No gossip here, my life seems to be moving fast with nothing of any importance to report...sorry!

    Thanks ER - that's the same as mine - R and R came very early so nearly 4 months in pt. 2.
    Being together for those 2 weeks then the void that followed has taken more adjusting than when he forst went - I don't know why. Especially now my countdown is to him being home for good.

    I don't know, New Year, days going down, all good in theory, but in practice I just seem to be worrying more and more emotional. I'm sure a lot of it is Chrostmas too and being out of routine as off work at the mo. I've cried more in the last 3 weeks than in the first 3 months put together.

    Already feel better by reading your words which may as well have come out of my head though :OD

    Thank you. xxx

    11 weeks feels like forever doesn't it? I promise in a couple of weeks it'll start to fly again and in the meantime may I suggest some red wine followed by cream-based whisky liqueur? It's certainly giving me a warm glow this evening

    Good pick Kazzam! I, myself, am on gin and pineapple juice. If not happy, it's at least making me sleepy!!!

    I know time will start to fly, especially when work recommences in a week. But when it does go slow, it doesn't half go slow! x

    Bless you. Nothing to report here either. I think that the C word always make tours harder anyway. Hopefully it will fly by now. Me xx
