Sat here attempting to write in the conservatory which is peaceful until sirens whizz past or a huge lorry shakes the whole place making me jump!
I’m in the process of writing a book about my journey from wanting to join the RAF as a young girl to where I find myself now. I am currently taking exerts from my operational journal and it feels like I am there again. I can almost smell the dust and sweat of Afghanistan all over again. I am currently writing about the time I spent deployed with the RAF Regt on the ground and I must have lost lots of weight because it seemed I hardly ate a thing!! I could perhaps use another month or 2 in the desert as I need to lose a few pounds!
We used to have ration packs and they weren’t the greatest to be fair! Especially for someone with a very fussy taste in food. Hopefully I will soon complete the bulk of the draft and be able to fill it out. Then it will be sent off for proof reading so watch out, I may be asking you!
For a summary of the book watch this clip – it’s only 7 minutes 🙂
