Hello all.... Well the army life starts here lol.... I first have to say a huge sorry to all the lads & lasses who I said we would meet up with on sunday but after being there on sunday, between 12 & 1pm, there were so many people there, that there was no way for me to look for you all. Everyone seemed to look happy though. As soon as I walked in that gate I though Oh god lol! The barrackers were huge & I have to say that I did think 'rather them than me' lol. I think my son now regrets wearing his suit as he was sweating lol. There were others in suits though. All the staff seemed lovley but I have no doubt they will be shouting at our lot by now lol! My son called to say he was happy, they had been told that they will be made to write home in a few days lol & they are of quad biking this weekend. We flew up to harrogate which was fine but yesterday, my 4pm flight got postponed due to a fault in a engine! The replacement plane then had a fault in it lol, so I got home at 5.30am!!! Next time we are going by the train! So whjat if it takes 7hrs lol! I too had to force myself in my sons bedroom this morning. It has a definant wiff or after shave & deodrant. Oh yes I have to say when they came & took the lads away, I cried like a baby! All the other mums around me were also crying, so I felt ok lol. I didnt want my son to see me upset & start to worry, so very hard to keep it together. I know we are all so proud of our children for taking this huge step. I am so very proud of him. I have to say that my house seems so empty without him here. I hope we can all keep in touch on here as you have told me stuff that I didnt know etc re the boot cleaning stuff etc. If I here anything, Ill post it on here ok. Have a good day all.
