    Another day, another newbie

    Hi all,

    Thought I'd drop in and say hello. I got engaged last month and now the other half is away again. Not entirely used to the idea of being a future RN wife quite yet but sure I'll get the hang of it Weekends alone are the worst!

    Hope life is treating you well,

    WhiteRose

    Hi congrats on the engagement, and welcome.

    I hope hes not left you to do all the planning while he plays at being a sailor!!

    Funny that. He took the initiative on the engagement, and I get all the planning! Don't mind though, planning is second nature to me, should be a doddle.

    Thanks for all your kind words :P

    Had to laugh at that quote, must be second nature to every army/raf and navy wife.

    Serious though, welcome to RP and good luck with the wedding plans.

    Thanks Sam. My mum was a Navy wife, too. I get it from her, I think

    Plans are moving on at last. Venue booked, suppliers identified, notice to sort when OH is on leave.

    Only the wedding dress is spooking me... great colour and crap dress, or great dress but crap colour. How difficult can it be to get a light blue full-length dress and not spend a fortune, FFS?

    If you grab yourself the perfect cream/white dress you can send it off and get it dyed. Problem solved!

    Re: Another day, another newbie

    Thanks yoni. I'm heading up to see family back in Yorks at the weekend. Thankfully my job keeps me stupidly busy during the day. It's just when I get home in the evenings life is a bit difficult. I've started saving all my housework for the weekends so I wear myself out!

    Only ten more days and he's back. Can't flipping wait.
