Gibraltar calling....

for the very last time.
I'd started writing a list last night of everyone I wanted to thank on here...the craft club girls, everyone at the vets, SSAFA, Cat Welfare, Debbie in Irish Town, Sarah in La Linea, Megan(for teaching me to cook scrummy Spanish food and introducing me to Tapas!),the medical team, our fab Health Visitor Amanda (who is now a firm friend), the DTC Dollies (my darts team!), all the other Forces wives out here, Pebble and Carol and last but not least PCW Jo!!!
Unfortunately I worked out that if I sat and wrote down everyones names it would take up the whole page!!!
So...I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. We have seen the most amazing things...tasted the most amazing wine...eaten the most amazing food...and most importantly...met the most amazing friends!
I'll be taking away some very special memories with me and will look back at my time in Gibraltar with much fondness especially my leaving do that the craft club girls held!!
And if you think I have forgotten someone very important...I haven't...I just don't know what to say about the most amazing, beautiful, talented, best mate I could ever have...who has cost me a fortune in crafting purchases, forced me to drink Sangria by the bucket, rammed churros and cakes down my throat, made me buy far to much jewellery, dragged me round the Spanish markets and who has shared my tears and my laughter whenever it was needed...thanks Gill for everything and for the things the others don't know about....that will get them all talking!!!
So I'm going to say bye to you all for now...see you when we get to kilt land!!!
