Well, I seem to have got my knickers in a twist for nothing. Husband has just called me. He doesn’t normally call on a Sunday, but on a whim, decided to. Of course I told him how upset I’d made myself believing he was not due home until 2013, and he calmly explained that he’d already received notification of his FLED – Facility Licence Eligibility Date (thanks to http://www.insidetime.org/info-glossary.asp for the explanation) and this is when he will be due for his “town visit” and that’s on 11 May 2012. So I’ve just spent the last 24hours in a deep gloom all for nothing. He promises me he will try not to let the boredom overcome him and that he will get through this.
That’s all I needed to know. I’m happy again now.
