In need of a hug

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Other half - gone. not back til October.

    Ames, you'll get through it. I surprised Mrs Blobbs the other day by still having all the little cards and blueys she sent me when I was away. E-mails are great but write some maileys as well, you can hold them and re-read them when your alone. Talk about everything, the least pussers the better.
  5. pussers? as in negative and blubbery?

    Pussers as in Navy.
  7. "Pusser" is a matelot slang word for the Royal Navy.

    I think that what WB is saying is that correspondence about anything but the Royal Navy is most welcome when you are miles from land on a ship (or in a sub).

    edit: sorry WetB, didn't see your explanation before I started to write!
  8. Ah I see.


  9. For what it's worth, I think that it will be good to tell him about your plans and the things you've been doing whenever you write - you know, signing up for a course in Holiday Spanish, learning to drive, going to see a mate for the weekend, all positive, perky stuff, if you can. Keep it upbeat.
  10. Vardy,

    He is probably feeling the same way but, being on a ship and kept busy, probably not quite as intense.

    However, you will soon find yourself looking forward to his home coming, and I expect that the
    date on your calendar will be circled with lipstick.

    And, when that day arrives, Boy Scout's motto.

    Boy scouts motto, I much prefer the more optimistic..."Suck it and See"

  15. I think you will find that the time goes much more quickly that you think. I'm amazed at how quickly time flies - last Christmas seems such a short time ago but it was actually over 4 months ago. When he comes back, you will think "good grief, that went quickly!".

    I'm sure that the early days are more difficult, so you should spoil yourself a bit - go out with friends or if at home, get out the DVDs he wouldn't want to watch - the chick flicks etc - wax your legs - get a tub of Ben and Jerry's. Aromatherapy baths etc. You know the drill.
  16. hehe, yeh. thanks. nice to know people are out there that understand :)

  17. You'll be fine. (PS one other thing this place is good for is picking up jackspeak, so when he does come home and has lost all command of normal english you'll have a fighting chance at understanding him!)
  18. Must.


  19. Come on Monty let it all out, better out than in!
  20. Gaaaaaah, nooooo!!

    Must. Not. upset. Soft. Saffa.............
