Things I Hate About The Army - #2

I've been forcibly reminded this week that there's a slight difference between the kingsize double bed I'm used to and something that feels about 2 feet wide, my feet hang over the end and the springs are that slack that it feels like I'm in a hammock.

Ah - the joy that is an army bed in transit accomodation.

And the absence of Mrs. Soldier just makes it all worse.

Got my Miss Marple hat on today and I can tell that you, young man, are a tallboy.

Hugh - so was mine until I got married. The beds in the new style accomodation are 'proper' ones though.

Katy - not the bestest.

Foilwoman - very true.

Pat - not particularly - they're just quite small beds.

Ick. I have much much sympathy. Like Katy my back twinges just thinking about it. If I'm anywhere but my own sweet carefully nurtured bed at home I ache for weeks.
