In other news:

I have a cold – boo!! This is typical as it is the RAF Odiham Christmas Draw this weekend and I shall be frocked up to the nines but somehow having to manage my make up so I don’t look like Rudolph the Reindeer. Post to follow on Monday.

I have just booked a trip to Dubai to visit Mrs Vino I will be blogging extensively about this Mrs Vino and I are planning an ex-pat’s look at Dubai living. It’s a crazy place. I don’t want to live there but I find it fascinating to look at it so I shall be given you an inside view.

I am going sans Hagar, sans The Grenade and The Menace so that I can lie by the pool and rest up in preparation for the pending deployment which will render me looking after our two children. I need to re-charge my batteries. About 7 years ago I bore The SLEEP DEPREVATOR………aka The Grenade and then 2 years ago I bore The HAVOC CREATOR aka The Menace, I think I can count the uninterrupted night’s sleep that I have had in 7 years on both hands. Anyway, I think Hagar needs to spend some quality time with his children so that he can feel blessed about his pending 10 week holiday in Crapistan. It will mean that he will look forward to deploying – it will be a nice break 😉

Always look on the bright side of life…..di doo di doo di doo di doo di doo

(I am just being glib – don’t get your knicker’s in a twist if Hagar had said this and not me – you would all be guffawing!)

I refer to you one of my early posts called Hagar’s Fantasy Family – War is simple. Family is messy.
