  • 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 […]

  • Hagar’s New Bed #WarrenEvansBedTales

    By on July 4, 2013
    It’s all change for us as we are taking the Grenade out of boarding school and he is moving in with me so Hagar is moving into a two room suite in the Officer’s Mess which is furnished with a single bed only. Now as he getting on a bit (and not getting any thinner) it seems unfair for him to […]

  • Hi-Ho! Hi-Ho! It’s off to war he goes!

    By on June 29, 2012
    The bird has flown the nest…stay safe. This has been the most emotional pre-deployment I have ever experienced – bearing in mind this is the 8th time I have done this and we are now actually separated! What is all that about? Maybe it’s because we had such a shit year and it’s all culiminating into this deployment. I haven’t […]

  • Chickens and Hand Grenades

    By on November 9, 2011
    Chickens and Hand Grenades The first time I ever threw a hand grenade was quite a tense occasion….you are gripped with performance anxiety and quite rightly so! When you throw a cricket ball or a stone, they won’t kill you if you fluff the throw and it drops at your feet. Unfortunately, the L109A1, which came into service in the […]

  • Hagar Goes To Afghanistan

    By on July 2, 2011
    Has Hagar gone? Hasn’t he? Fuzzy Duck? Does he? Ducky Fuzz? Maybe he has. Maybe he hasn’t. The exact timings don’t matter. What matters is how we all feel. How does he feel? How do I feel? How do the kids feel? I thought you might want to hear it from the horse’s mouth. From Hagar himself. I can’t really […]

  • Me, Hagar, Max Arthur and Malmaison

    By on December 12, 2010
    Hagar is not Hagar’s real name. It’s his blog name. I was inspired by the cartoon in The Sun, called Hagar the Horrible, who was a grumpy Viking warrior married to a feminist she-Viking called Helga. It seemed fairly apt. In real life I call him Mr ‘his real name’ so for this blog he’s going to be Mr Hagar. […]

  • Gumboots and Pearls

    By on August 23, 2010
    I was floored today by BBC Surrey’s Nick Wallis. (The interview is 2 hours 39 minutes 29 seconds into his show. This link will expire in 7 days) He rendered me unable to respond lucidly because I hadn’t anticipated his question. He asked me if any of Hagar’s superiors read the blog and then later on jokingly said that I […]

  • Real Life: Tonight we dine-in

    By on June 11, 2010
    First, of all I am praying Hagar doesn’t decide to come home for lunch! House equals Armageddon. I am at home with my little menace today, and she is just a motorised, chaos creator hell bent on household destruction. She has already consumed her body-weight in sand, painted my sink and her face with pink nail varnish, handed me her […]

  • Real life: Hagar’s Fantasy Family

    By on May 25, 2010
    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. The thing about the war in Afgahnistan is that it is a violent, feudal battlefield but life is ordered and structured. Hagar goes to war and he can focus solely on the job at […]
