  • Real Life: Back To Afghanistan In 2017

    By A Modern Military Mother on March 28, 2017
    “It’s been awhile since Hagar’s been deployed on ops, and as I prepare for it’s coming I think back to the challenges we have previously faced.” I wrote this on May 25th 2010 in my blog post Hagar’s Fantasy Family. Way back when, before we were estranged and before our new existence, as co-parents, was a breathing entity. I actually […]

  • Military Life Means Expect The Unexpected

    By A Modern Military Mother on March 24, 2017
    After 20 years of military disruption to my life, it really has become the norm for me to expect the unexpected. But those that are not connected to the military, or perhaps new to the lifestyle often don’t understand how the military mistress rules us all. When they have to go, they have to go and there is very little you […]

  • Aladdin at Salisbury Playhouse A Lorra Lorra LOLs

    By A Modern Military Mother on December 8, 2016
    I am a pantomime aficionado. “Oh yes I am!” This is due to that fact that my birthday falls on the 4th January and as a child my nana would take me to the Hull Theatre Royal to watch the panto. We would always sit in a box and they would read out my name and wish me happy birthday. […]

  • Light Up Your Garden

    By A Modern Military Mother on December 6, 2016
    The dual laser projector from RED5 is a decent quality bit of kit, at a very reasonable price, which is more than capable of livening up any party, inside or outside, with its laser sharp red and green laser projected patterns. We set the laser up, on the handy included flexi-tripod, on a first floor open window ledge, and aimed […]

  • The Injury Compensation Calculator

    By A Modern Military Mother on November 11, 2016
    Guest writer Gina Gough adds it up: I’ve never thought of myself as a person who needs to point the finger, to blame other people for my own misfortunes. Accidents happen, right, and there isn’t always someone to blame. Well, that’s how it’s supposed to be, isn’t it. Unfortunately, what I’ve discovered is that many of those ‘accidents’ didn’t need […]

  • It’s Electrifying – 100 years of energy

    By A Modern Military Mother on September 14, 2016
    As far as it is known, early attempts at man-made lighting happened about 70,000 years ago. The first lamp was invented made of a shell, hollowed-out rock, or something similar which wouldn’t set fire which was filled with stuff that would burn (probably dried grass or wood), with added animal fat (the original lighter fluid) and lit. Over time, materials such as pottery and […]

  • School’s Out For Summer #BritsAbroad

    By A Modern Military Mother on July 25, 2016
    According to AutoEurope most Brits will drink 56 alcoholic drinks, have 4 rows and moan about being too hot 8 times during an average fortnight abroad! This won’t be me! I love the sun and two week holiday – pah! This year we are spending three weeks in the sun and we won’t be complaining about the heat. Well, I […]

  • Real life: Macnaughty’s Manifesto – Vote For Me

    By A Modern Military Mother on July 6, 2016
    I am devastated by the Referendum. It consumes me. I am ranting on Facebook, but like any bad drug, it’s not helping and instead, making the despair worse. I am getting stuck into conversations with people who are impolite and cannot debate without slinging insults. This is annoying. People assume they know my politics and they don’t; so I have […]

  • What’s Love got to do with it? Cheaper to Cheat than Divorce

    By A Modern Military Mother on June 2, 2016
    I have just received this revolting press release which simply states that divorce is not cost effective and so it’s more cost effective to stay married in an unhappy relationship and have an affair then it is to get divorced. Indeed, everyone should conduct themselves with complete and utter disregard for another human being’s feelings and a lack for respect […]
