I'm excited!!! by Spursfan on 24 October 2010 9:49am
The R.A.F. base in our village changed to a M.O.D. base a year or two ago (there are still some R.A.F. there but they now have Ghurkas too) and last October they had a 'Get to Know the Neighbours' event where they invited all the villagers to the base.

Unfortunately, it was the day we were due to fly back from Turkey so we were unable to attend.

We had another invite a couple of weeks ago for this Thursday (28th) for another 'Getting to know the neighbours' event and this time I'm going! Zak doesn't want to, so I'm going on my own.

There will be displays and briefings and low flying displays and it's going to be ACE!!

Can't wait!!

I used to work at an RAF Base similar to yours. It closed down not long after I moved to Scotland and some of the buildings are now part of Belfast City Airport.

" There will be displays and briefings "
Note that carefully Anne, cos it doesn't say de-briefings and displays. :)

That sounds cool! I wish I was going!

Cheeky so-and-so, John!! :P

Unfortunately I am having a bad relapse of my illness (not helped by the fact that my surgery mixed up my repeat prescription and missed off my main medication (which is taken weekly) so I had this week's dose 3 days late - a letter of complaint has gone in) so I am hoping against hope that I recover enough to go on Thursday!!!

Fingers and toes (and anything else you can manage) crossed please everyone!!

Hope you feel well enough to go, Anne. My fingers and toes are crossed!!

Ah Anne, I was completely thoughtless. Never knew you had surgery or that you were not feeling well. Sorry, I hope you get in top form soon. :) x

I don't doubt that Anne has had surgery ( well surely she couldn't look that good naturally ) but when she mentioned surgery in her post, she was referring to her GP practice.

Phew! Thanks for the good news JTM.
Re: I'm excited!!! by Spursfan on 26 October 2010 11:29am
Oh yes, sorry about that Loretto, I did in deed mean GP's Surgery as Johnny said.

I have had a chronic illness, very similar to Lupus but rare, since 1994 (or at least that is when it was diagnosed). Feeling a bit better today.

Thank you Sue and Loretto. And I have NOT had surgery (at least the sort YOU mean, Johnny) - I am all me!!
