    Afternoon all!

    Hi all!

    just thought I'd pop in and introduce myself. Got a feeling this is going to be very addictive and that I will be losing a lot of time on here...

    Been with the OH for a few months now, new to the whole army thing and thought it was about time I met some people who know what it's like!

    Still in the UK at the moment but we don't live in the same post code and he is away a lot with work. But I drive down about as much as poss -thank God I'm on flex or the boss would have something to say about me rolling in a 10 lol

    Looks as though we are in the same position. His base is Essex and I'm in wales!

    How do you find the long distance thing?

    It's ok i guess lol Tough though when you have one of those days when you just need a hug.

    I guess it gives me a good balance - I get loads of me time but I still have somone I love to bits and am lucky enough to spend couple of evenings a week with him!

    Re: Afternoon all!

    Well it seems only fair - he has asked to move to one of two bases near me, so if that doesn't work out I don't mind looking into moving. Luckily my job is pretty mobile - local government is everywhere lol

    God i wish i was closer to my OH !!! bout 400 miles between us...or should i say 6 hr train rides, its a nightmare but worth it, he in basra at the moment and 5 months to go, he is looking at moving closer to me up north, hopefully i will move to be with him, the long distance thing is killing me...LOL

    Re: Afternoon all!

    Bless ya madhooch! Have to say, I feel very lucky - especially reading some of the posts on here.... At least I am close enough to drive down and I have a job that gives me the flexibility to stay overnight. Still miss him tho lol And won't be much use if he gets sent sandpit.
