  • Macnaughty UNCUT – Real Life Adventures – Read all about it!

    By on October 3, 2013
    I wrote recently about my real life adventures and it’s not going to be used so I am going to use it. I hate waste after all and so why waste it. My take on being a military wife: I don’t pretend it’s easy. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I don’t always enjoy it. It’s a […]

  • Should He Stay Or Should He Go?

    By on December 23, 2010
    I was on BBC Radio Wiltshire this morning talking about the impact of Defence cuts on military families. Should he stay or should he go? Military defence cuts at what price?

  • A Family Affair

    By on August 11, 2010
    A truly splendid day! RAF Odiham families day was spectacular. My feet hurt but I have that warm, buzzy feeling that you get after a thoroughly spendiferous time. The ethos behind any Families Day is a chance for the military to say thank you to the families, without whose enduring support and sacrifice, the work of those who serve would […]
