    Just another newbie

    Hello everyone, I've not been part of an internet forum since I was in school so is weird being back in one now but amazingly glad that there is a network of people out there who will be able to understand about being an Army girlfriend!! Isn't the internet an amazing tool??

    My other half has just gone into Sandhurst from being a regular civvi so here I am, seeking out new friends in similar situations! We've been together almost a year and I never had any thoughts about breaking it off because this is most definately "it" for me. Having said that, its hard and I'm starting to view this not only as Officer Training for the OH, but army girlfriend life training for me??? I am trying to be as upbeat as possible when I get a phone call and I've already sent a parcel with chocolate but any advice from any one else on how I can be strong and supportive would be fab. But it would also just be fab to make new friends!! Gosh, I've waffled on a lot haven't I?? Anyways... hope everyone here is ok and well.

    Hi loula,

    Have a good rummage around the forums, loads of advice but mostly will be summed up as make no plans that cant be altered and keep a well stocked wine rack.

    Say the most useless tool on here.....how does it feel to be replaced by a lump of plastic powered by batteries?

    Ho Loula

    I've no idea about being an army WAG as my OH is in the RN you'd think it was the same but there is a world of difference for the guys but for those of us left behind we have much the same issues.

    Lots of folk on here and you'll always find someone whose been through it all before. I don't post much because reading through the threads I usually find the answer to my question, its fab

    Stay Strong, Stay happy

    Don't waste today worrying about tomorrow.

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

    Hello Mrs. H.

    Why not poke yer nose into the Parents section?

    If poking yer nose in is your thing, you should be well at home wiv this lot.
