'WHAT?' You ask... 'With the unpredictability and inevitable delay on embarking on any military journey?!'
'Ah' I say, 'I made enquiries at several venues and this one just happened to have an ex-army receptionist who is married to an ex-army husband and celebrating the return of a friend from Afghanistan this very weekend. Not only did she completely understand that I might want to delay the two booked nights, but she gave me a discount and found the best room she could offer'
And it just happens to be very close to DBs parent's home, so I won't be stealing him away completely... in fact, I'm trying to call DB's mum now to tell her the news and make plans :)
Lucky DB doesn't read this blog huh :)
And in other news... I *thought* I resolved the gym problem today but turned up to a Body Pump class to find my membership has been suspended! The receptionist however was very kind - evidently this company causes A LOT of problems for members so she gave me the class on a 'complementary' ticket :)
Oh, and I passed my exams fine :) Hopefully ready to get all my 'tickets' back tomorrow and be able to control some air traffic in the UK again!
