  • 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 […]

  • A quick introduction..

    By on September 20, 2013
    .. Clare has kindly asked me if I’d like to post the occasional blog. I won’t be posting about weekends away (although this Saturday, I will be spending a couple of days here with my girl), making jam or choosing trendy wellies.. or like Clare seems to do; casually hanging out with the rich and famous.  But I do hope to be […]

  • Welcome Home Son Even YOU Will Never Know

    By on October 18, 2012
    “Tonight I shall sleep well. I shan’t dread the sound of cars stopping outside, with doors slamming & footsteps approaching. When the phone rings after 10pm my blood won’t run cold whilst I hold my breath. I will no longer imagine the scenario of a uniformed man telling me that he has bad news… Tonight I shall drink that bottle […]

  • Sisters Are Doing It For Ourselves

    By on January 18, 2012
    If you want something done do it yourself, and if you are married to the military, then it’s most likely there is no other bugger around to do it anyway. Heledd Kendrick was put in touch with me by the military wives that launched the website Follow The Flag, an online directory for the self employed military spouse. Being married […]

  • RAF Wife – The Daily Mail

    By on October 10, 2011
    *Warning – ranting!!* I am beginning to hate the British newspapers. For some reason, we always buy The Sunday Times and I think I am going to have to change my paper – maybe buy The Guardian or The Telegraph. I have no doubt that they will still piss me off. The London bourgeois elite media blowing sunshine up their […]

  • 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 […]

  • Real Life: I Don’t Know How You Do It?

    By on May 18, 2010
    ‘I don’t know how you do it?’ These immortal words are guaranteed to make the military spouse wince, just a little. We do it because we have to. We do it because there is no choice. What good does it serve to fall apart when your husband (I say husband but please supplement with partner) is away on operations? My […]
