    Hi!

    Hi everyone! I'm new to all this and its severly annoying my husband! I came on here to try and find some info about a new posting, but after being an a widow to the ARRSE website for what seems like forever, i decided to have a bit of a look around, and have become slightly addicted to this site myself! No info about the move yet but if it keeps the OH shouting in every 5 mins about something incredibly funny that he's read, that i don't understand and he has to spend half an hour explaining work stuff while i switch off- then at least some good has come out of it!
    Been an army wife for over 6 years and have three children, so used to army life, but hubby is getting attached to the navy soon so is there anything i need to know?? Is there really much difference? Thing i'm worried about the most though to be honest is whether my sofa and kids will fit in my new quarter- it looks really small on google earth!!
    Looking forward to chatting with all of you x :P

    Hiya!

    Searching on the site for common phrases/things you're looking for really helps - unlike other forums I've been on where the search results end up being 18 pages long and unhelpful...

    Is there any way you can go and see your new quarter before you move in? I know other people who have visited prior to march-in and managed to sort their furniture out around the new house.

    Unlike us cos OH didn't tell me we could do that. We are lucky our sofas fitted in through the patio doors! I know for next time, though
    Opinionated, Moi?

    Re: Hi!

    I would go and visit it but we are in ipswich at the mo, and the new house is in yeovil! We'll probably get there at some point but you only get 10 days to accept or refuse it, and with the xmas post the letter was sent late already! If it really was small does anyone know what the score would be about requesting a bigger one?? I'm only entitled to a three bed but three kids come with a lot of stuff! and half our stuff is already in the garage from being given a smaller house on the last move- and this one doesn't come with a garage! We seem to have been given a smaller house every time we've moved so far- and each time i've had an extra child!!

    I can't see how her fiddling with the old man's goolies will solve the storage problems....

    Re: Hi!

    Lol, would give anything a try at the mo!!
    Well, went to visit the quarter aver xmas. The village is lovely and all the quarters looked nice and big, all pretty new and stuff. So we drove around the patch looking for our house, feeling pretty smug, then got to our end of the estate! There was a row of pretty old looking houses a bit worse for wear, mixed in amoungst a whole load of civvy flats!! Not as great as we first anticipated but after having a little nosey through the window its not all bad! The living room is pretty big, as is the kitchen, but from my view through the letter box i could see no other doors- which means no downstairs loo or dining room. Now the loo i can cope with, but what do you do with out a dining room??!! WE always sit around the table, and with some pretty lively toddlers i wouldn't want them anywhere else! Tv dinners all round from now on then!!

    Re: Hi!

    If there really isn't a dining room - try this:
