Chuffed to bits for her as its what she has always wanted. Seeing her in all her fireams gear is a bit unnerving and i would sooner she never felt the need to carry arms. But I suppose times have changed from when she was our little baby. Big cuddle coming off dad tomorrow.
    Oh ah she must be able to shoot straight co they have asked her to do her rifle/sniper training.
    At least somebody in the family can aim straight. Perhaps she can give you some tips Mr Tash and that handicap will free fall 😜👍

    Nice one Tashy. My youngest daughter gave me a proud moment yesterday when in her first cross country race, she finished 10th out of 157 runners and being one of the youngest in the field.

    So proud of my Daughter.

    She was never academic at school and left with average exam results. But she had ambition - to work with children and went on to study for her NNEB Nursery at College. She passed easily and worked at 2 Childrens nurseries over the next 12 or so years.

    Then decided to go for a job at the Royal Alexandra Childrena Hospital in Brighton. Was one of 60 applicants and got down to the last 2, didn't get it as she didn't have Hospital experience and was asked to re-apply when another position came available. She did just that and was successful and now works in the OperatingTheatres as a Health Care Assistant.

    She often tells us of some of the operations on the premature babies. The last one only weighed 2.5 kgs. her head was only the size of a tennis ball, and everything about baby was perfect except the bowels. Glad to report that the operation was sucessful.

    Say thanks to your daughter and to all the people who work in those situations from a parent whose son was operated on when he weighed less than 2lb, that was 24 yrs ago and still thankful everyday to every person who cared for him.

    This sums up young daughter Tash very well indeed. So much so that several teachers told her she had no chance of being a copper. One teacher however sat her down and told her she needed to work in retail to learn people skills. He invited a sixth former along who got her a job at Next. She worked there for three years. During that time she was told by the same teachers to stay there. She managed to get to store assistant manager and packed it in to be a copper.
    She has often said that she would like to turn up at her comp Skool and look around said teachers cars and maybe bang a ticket or two on 😁
    Would like to bump into said teacher who believed in her and give him a Tashyboy cuddle.

    Will do Paul, and thanks.

    Hope your boy continues to do well.
