Friday 7th september: Pick up son, thinks it's last time he'll be home before Afghan so were collecting all his stuff. Saturday 15th September: Sons of to football and then meeting some boys from barracks who are in area. I get a phone call later that day saying they cant go for a drink in city as son has football top on, can they all come down to ours for dinner and can the 4 other boys stay the night. Sunday 16th September: 4 am in they all come. Son looks awful, i go to bed thinking he's such a light weight. Husband and myself offer to drive them all back to barracks. Get refused as the other boys don't need to be back till Wednesday. Off they all go in the afternoon. Monday 17th September: 2pm i get a phone call from the Captain looking for my son, i tell him he's on the barracks. He asks if i saw the other boys as he knew they were heading in this direction and possibly meeting up. Told him yes but had no idea where they were as they still had a few days leave. Tuesday 18th Sept: I get phone call from son telling me he'll be home in a couple of weeks, he has or he will( cant remember which) fail CDT. Friday 26th October. He's home and ready to talk at last. Doesn't take a genius to work out he took the drugs on the Saturday night when on leave. The other boys didn't get caught because they didn't go back to the barracks till wednesday. The reason, " Mum i was going to Afghan, hadn't done it before and was curious, i just wanted to try them in case i didn't come back. Like you all will be i'm skeptical but hopeful this is the truth.
