  2. Cotton wool Balls!For bulling your boots!I assume with all the cosmetics you are of the female persuasion?
  3. Congratulations, enjoy your training. Well you may not at the time, however when you look back after a couple of years you will have some laughs. Being nervous is normal, anyone who claims not to be is either lying or just doesn't give a toss.
  4. have I forgotten anything?

    Ahhh your mind?? Good luck Stealthmode. Pinta x
  5. good luck - but ............. no comment hun- good luck
  6. cheers for the cotton wool balls tip, i'll pick some up tomorrow...

    and no, I'm not a woman, i'm a bloke I just dont want to get dry skin or spots...
  7. Big black marker pen, and write your name on EVERYTHING (even civvie kit / brushes and so on).

    I fact buy two marker pens, so you can write your name on the marker pens.

    Don't take your favourite dog porn - you don't get it back.

    S.O.H. and common sense (I forgot mine).

    Good luck!
  8. You're too intelliigent to join that bunch of cretins. If you proceed you will regret it
  9. I think if YOU proceed YOU will regret it!!
  10. When it come to wash things, I took:

    Shower gel
    Tooth Brush
    Tooth paste
    Razor and spare blades

    Don't think I would have had enough time to have anything more exotic. I guess that must be the luxury of have 8 weeks rather than cramming it into 2!

    Some guys took "lint rollers" for getting fluff off you Woolie Pully etc, I was a cheap-skate and took a roll of cellotape instead.

    Good luck at Raleigh, I think you will in fact enjoy it.
  11. Not another name change Norman
  12. Best of Luck mate, Can't wait to get my start date and i haven't even had my interview, I'm hoping to get the guestimate date tomorrow in the interview but don't think i will. :( Good Luck and Enjoy it.

    P.S what you going in for?
  13. What am I going in for? - because I dont want to work at a bank for the rest of my life

    if you meant what am I going in as, the answer is ET(ME) S/M

  14. Bad behaviour?? Good behaviour??? Depends on what the judge comes up with!!! :biggrin:
  15. I'm thinking msg myself - get you a beer if it's Normsky :thumright:

    Edit: Reading his other posts - looks like I owe you a beer :dwarf:
  16. You forgot the bottle opener!!

  17. Kitchen sink, fridge, tumble drier, microwave, dishwasher....???? :whew:
  18. Please, please, please tell me that you're not taking moisturiser and facial wipes. If you are taking them, make sure you don't forget your Tampax. :eek:mfg:
  19. Yea, Sorry i did mean "as" not "for", Well once again good luck.
  20. oh, come on it's 2007, it's perfectly normal for a 22yr old man to use moisturiser!
    I'm not going to be getting stuck into any wrens if I've got spots and flaky skin now am I?
