Partner of a Pilot
The Candid Diary of an Airline Pilot’s Girlfriend

May 28, 2008

  Well, what can I say… The time away was amazing! We went away, just the two of us for a few days…  No expense was spared by Bf.  I normally tend to like to pay my own way, and split costs for dates and social outings (I was always brought up to pay my own way) but […]

“Pilots, control-freaks or boys in men’s bodies”: Discuss.

May 21, 2008

I think pilots are control freaks. At least, that is my experience, and from what I have learned from other pilot wives and girlfriends, it seems to be a fairly common trait. It seems particularly prevalent when they are passengers in a car. Bf is such a terrible back seat driver (even by his own […]

Feel Good Factor

May 19, 2008

You may have noticed a few new blogs in my blogroll section (non aviation)… After my little negative mood slump recently, I decided to lift my own spirits. Positive thinking and all that. Personally, for me, nothing beats the mood lift of pounding myself into a sweaty mess at the gym! I come out feeling […]

It’s okay! I have a spare!

May 18, 2008

Things have been great in my relationship with Bf recently. Really great. Bf is being really loving and attentive. We’ve really enjoyed his time off work. Also, I felt pretty ill this last week, and Bf has really looked after me: making me meals, going to the pharmacy, offering me drinks, he’s even been getting […]

Aviation News-Boring or Interesting?

May 17, 2008

Okay, this is actually getting a little tiresome now… I got a blog review in from someone who claimed to have read my last blog entry (though if she had, she didn’t take it all in).  Here’s what she wrote: I think it’s funny that you have enabled people to leave comments about your blog, and expect […]

Blog Reviews

May 14, 2008

I guess I always knew that there would be people out there who would like this blog, and people out there who would not.  I was prepared for polarised views. I always enjoy listening to the positive feedback and comments, and I can take the bad stuff, because I know that these people are just different. I […]

Flight Delays

May 14, 2008

I hate flight delays. Bf was called out to do a flight today. He got overtime for it, which was great; except that he was due back an hour ago. I have just checked live arrivals and he is delayed by at least an hour. But now I’m hacked off that he didn’t text me […]

Funny Video

May 8, 2008

I just found this today… Check out my new ‘Funny Aviation Videos’ page in the right hand margin if you want to see more comical videos! Funny video, but not at all realistic; as it doesn’t show her having him arrested and arranging to sue the airline for allowing it to happen! Lol!

Fun in the Sun

May 8, 2008

Well, thought I’d write a quick entry. Things are pretty good here… Baby is much better, the weather has been BEAUTIFUL this week-and we have made the most of it. We took baby to a local farm yesterday to see the animals (she adores animals already) and to get a locally produced ice cream. It was so […]

Things I lie awake at night thinking about…

May 5, 2008

I was unable to sleep well last night. I woke just before 2am-ish and managed to dose off again at about 4am I was running over a million random things in my mind like; I hope Baby is better in the morning. I hate it when she’s ill. I wish I could be ill in […]
