Partner of a Pilot Artwork

October 29, 2008

I stumbled accross a great blog some months. It’s called Organised Doodles, and belongs to an artist called Rick Green. I liked the fun nature of his work so much, and hadn’t been able to find any images on the net that I felt represented the nature of my blog other than random pictures of planes… […]

CRINGE worthy

October 23, 2008

Oh My Goodness, I am SO MORTIFIED! I just got back from visiting a girlfriend and her baby. When I returned home; I found that the builders were back (they’ve been away on holiday); and were working on our extension. I offered them a cup of tea, as you do. Any way… A few minutes […]

TSA L-3’s XXX-Rated Airport Scanner Pictures

October 22, 2008

I know that I have blogged about this before (Okay, Thoughts Please? I am all for improved security, but how would you like to be strip searched on camera by airport security?) and I would like to clarify that I am in favour or good airport security; but I am not in favour of being personally […]

Gadgets and boys toys

October 21, 2008

Well, Bf is home, and off for the whole week. He’s finished building his new 3D helicopter and took it out for it’s first flight today. He came home so pleased with himself. Although, he did say “I think this could end up being an expensive hobby.” (Hellooooo! He has only JUST figured this out!? […]

A quick poll, just because I’m interested!

October 19, 2008

Feel free to elaborate on your answers in the form of comments! I am intrigued about who reads my blog, especially since only a few of the 200 or so hits I get per day seem to leave comments!

Weekends just aren’t the same in a pilot family

October 19, 2008

Well, Bf and I just spoke. He’s just about to leave the hotel to make the 9 hour flight home… Although, when I say home, he’s actually landing in an entirely different UK based airport at the farthest end of the UK; where he’ll have about twelve hours rest in a hotel before catching his […]

Baby Airline Pilot

October 18, 2008

I was just scouting the net for all things aviation, and found this… I just had to share it because it’s SOO adorable! I think I might just buy one for Baby, as Bf would just love it! All together now, AHHHHHHHHH

Whilst the pilot’s away, the neighbours-from-hell will play (the drums, at night).

October 16, 2008

My neighbours are morons, and they make me feel old. Bf has gone, and I do miss him, but have been so busy again today that I really haven’t had much time to think about him. I thought I’d try to get an early night tonight, but my moronic neighbours scuppered that plan! You see, my […]

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

October 15, 2008

Well, Bf’s off on another long-haul tomorrow. He’s been off for most of the past few weeks with me, and it has been absolutely wonderful. I have been crazy busy with work and various ‘to-do’ tasks that have needed to be done; and the weeks have passed in a blur. So we haven’t spent the time enjoying […]

Pilots and their gadgets and toys.

October 12, 2008

I didn’t think that the flying separation could get any worse; but I was wrong. I read once in a pilot personality profile, that pilots generally love toys and gadgets, so I wasn’t too worried when Bf wanted a mini radio controlled helicopter for Christmas. I even encouraged my mum to guy one for him as a Christmas […]
