My names Gemma, and I jumped (belly flopped?) into the military bubble at the deep end. I moved to Germany, a year and a half ago: my first ever posting. The last few years have been both the happiest of my life, and taxing. Moving across Europe, settling two children into their second ever school, starting a new job, making new friends, getting used to being labelled a ‘dependent’ (still not quite there yet, it irks the feminist in me) and the arrival of a bouncing baby boy, doesn’t come without its fair share of raised cortisol levels and upped gin consumption.
And so, here we are. My blog is born 🙂 xoxo
