    Another newbie

    Hiya all

    I'm really new to all this, my partner of 5 yrs has just joined the RAF and so after living with him and being engaged to him for 3 years he is now of next month to start his training. I have no idea what i'm getting myself into and havnt really seen many resources telling me (an idiots guide to life in the raf would be good)! We were due to get married in July 08 but we have know idea how it will effect our plans? This is something my Partner has wanted to do for along time and at 26 doesnt want to hold it of anymore.

    Any info would be fab

    Many thanx

    Claire :P

    Hiya Missy - i am off to Majorca for a week.

    would have preferred a fortnight somewhere a bit further away, but other half cant get a fortnight off work!

    Still, it will be nice just to get away.

    I just stumbled across it typed in something like life in the RAF and it popped up. I came across E-goat before this one.

    My boyfriend had told me about this I think he guessed that the whole thing is quite strange for me!!!!!! We spent a few years commuting back and forth so I just accepted that we only seen each other every few weeks. Now he lives with me and I know that i'm going to have to meet people that he works with, etc Im completely lost with the whole thing!!! I only joined this site the other day and every1 seems very helpful.

    Re: Another newbie

    you have one up on me your other half is already established within a force! My OH leaves in sept for training luckly he has been told the second half of his training will be in Portsmouth not far from where we currently live so seeing each other will be easier. I have a feeling I will be throwing myself into sorting out our wedding the best I can and keeping busy.

    Thanks to everyone who had replied

    If I remember rightly FunkyQueenBrit has an Idiots Guide to being an RAF wife somewhere, if you wait for her to log in I'm sure she'll send you the link for it.

    Welcome to RP!

    Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.

    Hiya Yoni

    yes I know what its like to have a long distace already its very hard when my OH would visit at weekends it was an 2 1/2 hour drive. But like i said that was 3 years ago! Im used to having him around now, so i'm going to have to ajust to the change again.

    As for the wedding ideas have been floating around since we got engaged 2 years ago but we just kept putting it of due to money,work and family! So its a case of sorting it out in less then a year, and with the size of family I have its not going to be easy.

    Missy_moo :P
