Its 21 years since my friend & I met ( her husband & my boyfriend were friends... neither man stayed the course unlike our friendship!) and although we do not live close now (she's in Scotland and I'm in London) I know that she is only a phone call away.
He has spent the last 6 months in Helmund in Afghanistan...we've kept in touch via facebook which helps, especially when everyday you are dread listening to the news. Fortunately Daniel has returned.Whilst he has been on tour, the boys from his regiment along with other regiments ran a marathon around camp bastion to race money for Help for Heroes.
My thoughts are with all the families who's boys haven't come home or have come home injured.
Talking to Dan last night it certainly is harder for those that are left at home, to them they are dong the job that they signed up for and love.
As my friend has one boy home her youngest (16) is away on his first week of maneuvers at Harrogate.
I am incredibly proud of him, and incredibly relieved that he is home safe.
Hugs & Love ,
will up to see you all soon.
