  • AMMMTV – Domestic F*ckwittery – Baking Disaster!!!

    By on September 11, 2012

  • It’s The Self-Preservation Society

    By on June 12, 2012
    Guest Blog by Paula Smith Blacktower Financial Management Group Like many people you might think life’s too short to worry about what might go wrong in the future. We agree! That’s why protection is such a good idea. It means you and your family can relax and enjoy life today, knowing if something does go wrong tomorrow – money needn’t […]

  • I Am Not ‘That Wife’

    By on September 1, 2011
    First, of all I have to tell you that I am not an ‘Army wife’. I am the estranged wife of an ‘air force’ pilot – a person who is the Royal Air Force. It’s a point that those not in the military fail to see the difference and so, invariably, I am referred to as an Army wife. There […]

  • Home and Away

    By on July 10, 2011
    In Crapistan – news from the frontline: Hagar writes; “So, finally back off to war. It’s a strange feeling leaving home, kind of bittersweet; the excitement of heading back to a conflict zone, versus the pain of leaving those you love. Its hardest as you get on the bus from camp to the departure airhead. Everyone sits in silence after […]

  • The Cost of a Wife

    By on December 15, 2010
    If I died Hagar couldn’t deploy. He would have to stop flying. We have two kids. He would be responsible for them. My mum died in 1974. I was 2 years old. My dad hadn’t insured her. He had insured himself to the hilt in case of his own death so that she wouldn’t go without but he had under-valued […]

  • 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 […]

  • Who wears the daddy pants?

    By on June 27, 2010
    I have always been a bit of raging feminist. I am free spirit at heart, with dreams of eco-living so being married to the military often causes clashes of perspective. When I met Hagar, I wrote passionately about retaining my independence of thought. I often say, much to Hagar’s chagrin that I only married him because of the military. The […]

  • Real Life: I Hate Housework!

    By on June 15, 2010
    It’s tedious, monotonous and infinite! I resent the fact that Hagar doesn’t do as much as me and has somehow managed to morph a relationship founded on equality to one of segregated conjugal roles! How did this happen? At the same time, I know that I lead a privileged existence and inside my soul I should be pleased to serve […]

  • 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 […]
