Free Art!

December 31, 2008

 just wanted to draw your attention to a competition over at Rick’s blog. In case you’re new to my blog, Rick is the chap who produced my rather lovely blog artwork (see it in the post below or in my side bar).  If you would like the chance to win your very own drawing from Rick, check […]

Pilots as step parents?

December 19, 2008

  I just wanted to add this post, because I get days where I feel like I’ve reached my wits end with my family.  I think most of us would agree, that pilots tend to be more ‘self focussed’ than other people (they have to be to succeed); not all the time-but definitely on occasions (in our house at least), […]

Nativity Plays are great

December 18, 2008

Well, I managed one and a half hours sleep last night. I just lay there wide awake, cursing my pounding heart and the way my ticking mind was incessantly processing all manner of unimportant, random thoughts… I kept tossing and turning. I probably lost several pounds from last nights work out as I tried to sleep alone. I […]

A thief wearing a santa hat stole my Christmas spirit!

December 16, 2008

Something is not quite right in my world. Not way off, just not quite right-but I can’t put my finger on what… It’s exasperating.  Yesterday, Bf and I put up most of the Christmas decorations; and we saved back some of the tree decorations for the children, to hang.  We played Christmas songs to help create […]

Wedding of the day (a random Thursday in the winter, that is)

December 14, 2008

Well, the wedding has been and gone. The whole day reeked of vast sums of money having been spent.  I have been to some very decadent and elegant weddings in the past; some of them in castles and manor houses; but none with as many bells and whistles as this one! I turned up to the […]

Kick me when I’m down

December 10, 2008

I am going to scream! This God forsaken hell hole of a dump that they call the Travelodge hasn’t got even one room with hot water tonight! NOT ONE! I think I’m going to get a refund and bugger off home

What a farce!

December 10, 2008

I am officially fuc*!ed off! If you never read the post  “Wedding politics, and guest list etiquette-Is THIS Right or Wrong?!”,  you might want to, or else this will not make ANY sense… ANY WAY, so Bridezilla and no-balls finally told Bf when he rang them, that they had some guests (plural, I’m assuming they were partners), might […]

First Officer Bf, this is ATC, Please stop flying NORDO or I will scramble fighter jets and bring you down!

December 8, 2008

I am a worrier.  I’ll worry about anything.  In fairness to me though, I have experienced a fair share of trauma in life to justify this, and have learned the behaviour from my own mother at a young age.  As you will know if you read my last post, I was feeling a bit down when Bf went […]

Having an ‘Oh Poor Me’ day

December 4, 2008

I’m having a bit of an ‘Oh poor me’ day today; feeling thouroughly down in the mouth. I have just dropped Bf off at the airport for a 5 day long-haul trip; and we had a bit of a fall out before he left. The past 24 hours have just generally been rubbish between us… […]

Fun with my children in London

December 3, 2008

One of my best friends from university turned the big 3-0 just this week. She is Austrian, and had made the effort to fly into the UK for my last birthday-which I was very touched about. Well, it so happens, that she is flying into London (where we did our degree) for the]is coming weekend to see some of her chums for her […]
