    Hi

    Hi all,

    Well, where do I begin?

    My name is Lisa, My Hubby has just deployed to Afghan, it`s the first time he`s deployed since we married in 2006 and to be totally honest....it`s a horrible time as most of you probably already know.
    I found this site through ARRSE and it looks like a great site. Hopefully I`ll get to `meet` you all around the site.

    Lisa xx

    Hi Lisa - welcome to the nuthouse!

    Join in, read the site - there's loads of info - and a great "rant for no reply" thread when you have to let something out but don't know, or want, anyone that close to you to hear it

    I'm going to be in the same situation as you soon - so feel free to PM me etc. as I know the other girlies will be around soon too.

    Take care!
    (Oh, and having a sense of humour really does help in this place.... )

    Don't waste today worrying about tomorrow.

    A true heart and soul connection won't be broken by distance or time.

    What do you mean wine isn't the answer!!!

    Some people are like slinkies, they're really good for nothing...but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs!

    Re: Hi

    Well what a welcome! Thanks

    I`ve had a bit of a read about and it does seem really friendly here so I am looking forward to `chatting` a bit. I do have a sense of humour so I think I`ll cope with it all....famous last words! lol

    lawlady....thanks for the tip but I don`t really drink. I am however open to the possibility of changing that now though

    I`m in Poole although hubby is with 29 in Plymouth. As much as it`s the norm for him to be away during the week and I`m used to that, him being in Afghan is just something extremely foreign to me. I`m an awful lot luckier than most as the only time we`ve really had away from each other was when he was in Norway in 2006 before we got married but it`s still difficult.

    Anyway.....I`m looking forward to having more of a read so I`ll see you around the boards
