  11. Please tell me that I have misread this, your bed is made up for you when you join? FFS, who tucks them in?
  12. What one is Pellew again, it's the one that's up next to the dinner hall and miles from Drake, etc?

  13. Make up beds=put together frames....hopefully.
  14. Hopefully they've got the crease down the middle waiting for us! ;)
  15. Sounds more like a good hotel to me. Is the hotel service (washing, ironing, boot polishing, etc) standard now? ....and Chiefy tucking you all into bed before bedtime stories. Bless. I knew the RN had changed for the better......... ;)
