Hi! I started this blog yonks ago as a way to cheer up the other Navy wives on my (then) fiances ship. It’s kind of taken off since then really!

Fast forward a few years- me and Popeye are married with two mad toddlers, who I have dubbed “Sweet Pea” and “Sproglet” and our Westie.
I’m learning about the super-duper-mega-fun-not-stressful-at-all time that is keeping tyrannical small people alive, clean and fed whilst being married to a sailor who keeps (inconveniently) deploying.
Basically my blog is a space for me to talk about the real life stuff that happens when you are a Royal Navy Wife.
Its other aim is to bring some reassurance to other military wives that they are not completely loopy, or it might just serve as concrete evidence that I am the one round the bend, and every other military wife is a pillar of strenth and sanity. So it could go either way.
Real life wise- My background is in Psychology. Now at times (oh the irony) I feel I may be losing my mind in this strange world of navy-wifedom. I wanted a professionals opinion and unfortunately I talk to myself, so its kinda a cyclical problem.
Well thats enough “about” stuff. I think.
