I’m sick of swine flu!

April 30, 2009

I am officially concerned.  Bf has operated a rescue flight out to one of the Swine Flu affected areas. He took an empty plane out and spent a little over 24 hours there before returning home… I know the chances of his actually becoming infected are not particularly significant, but it’s naturally playing on my mind, since […]

Is it wrong that I don’t care?

April 22, 2009

I have had an incredibly busy week.  It’s been the school holidays, and my ex had the boys for the latter week.  I don’t normally like him having them for so long, but in this case it was both good and necessary, especially after he rang me to have this conversation about his relationship of […]

“Should I brag to a girl about being a pilot?”

April 14, 2009

This is not a question: “Should I brag to a girl about being a pilot?” was an actual Google hit that my blog received today!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  What a loser! Ok, whilst we’re on the search engine results I thought I’s share a few more: “pilot messing around with flight attendants” “do all pilots cheat?” “eat child” (yes […]

I love being pampered, and Skype is the icing on the cake.

April 12, 2009

I’m still in France, I feel like I’m going to need to be crane lifted out of my muum’s house after her gourmet culinary treats, and I don’t even care! I feel SO relaxed. Bf is way accross the other side of the globe. Neither of us is in our home country, but I’m only paying […]

Spending Easter being pampered by my mum!

April 11, 2009

So, Bf is on ANOTHER long-haul trip. He left on Wednesday and gets back on Monday-that’ll be the whole of Easter then! He has not yet spent one Easter with our daughter! Oh well, I guess you have to accept that these holidays cannot necessarily be enjoyed with your loved one when they are a […]

My purely consumerist wish list

April 6, 2009

So, um, this is a bit of a random blog entry, not remotely to do with the world of aviation on this occasion-but it’s my blog so deal with it! 😉 Why is it that when I have spending money burning a hole in my pocket or it’s coming up to Christmas etc, I can’t think of […]

Light bulb moments!

April 3, 2009

Well, I am having a much better week this week. Bf has been home for all of it, bar one day (which was only an office day). I sleep so much better when he’s home.  I have also felt much less emotional, not necessarily a great thing though as I was possibly bordering on somewhat […]
