How can you trust a Pilot and accept his chosen career? …You really can you know!

February 15, 2011

I included the above picture to demonstrate the ways that one individual can be viewed stereotypically by a number of different people and perspectives. How we perceive others is subjective, that is to say that thoughts are not facts. I often receive emails or blog comments, rants and pleas for help from pilot wives and […]

“How to get a Married Pilot to Cheat”… Are you freaking serious?

January 14, 2011

I have bigger fish to fry right now than to worry about whether my pilot is trustworthy… But this has really annoyed me (you’ll see soon enough). Just for the record. I couldn’t feel more loved than I do right now. Bf is being SO AMAZING and is being incredibly supportive towards me in the […]

How to avoid falling down negative (emotional) Pilot Wife/girlfriend rabbit holes…

September 17, 2010

I have to say, that I cant remember ever feeling as accepting and at peace with my life as it is as I feel at the moment… That is not to say my life is picture perfect; but simply that I am living in the moment and accepting the things I cannot change.  I downloaded […]

The wisdom of no escape

September 11, 2010

Right… I have reached the end of my tether… My ‘fat jeans’ don’t fit me any more! In all the chaos of this year, my physical exercise has really been the element that has given, and I am eating tons of chocolate! Not really a good balance, but I am focusing on what is right […]

Pilot Reduced Nightmares

July 17, 2010

Last night, I went to bed restless. I am not sure why. I struggled to get to sleep, probably because I was up too late on my new MacBook pro.  Bf rang me, and we chatted at about 1am, he was just about to go out to dinner after a hard afternoon’s shopping.  He hired […]

Back on track

July 1, 2010

Things are looking up a little since my last post.  We just got back from one of Bf’s work trips (which I will write about in my next entry) and I was offered a new job that I was called about by a recruitment consultant about… I posted my CV on Monster aaaaaaaaages ago, and […]

Hopes and Fears

April 21, 2010

My pilot is in the skies somewhere overhead as I type this. He has been away almost 11 days.  He was only supposed to be gone for 6.  He is on his way home from Asia on what should only have been an 8 or 9 hour flight.  He sent me a text 10 hours […]

Good news… I found a flexible work arrangement that fits around his roster!

March 25, 2010

This past few months have been a bit of a whirlwind for me… Some good stuff, some bad… I am not sure where to begin, but I guess starting from where I was at on my last post maybe better than hitting you with all the heavy stuff first.  I was job hunting when I last […]

A touch of the green-eyed trip monster

January 24, 2010

Bf has just got back from a 5 day long-haul trip that I had hoped I would be going on with him too.  Unfortunately, for logistical reasons, it was not possible.  It was a hard goodbye to say through green eyes and I have to be honest I did give him a bit of a […]

Pilot Partner Friends

December 3, 2009

Bf is away all week this week on a long-haul trip, and I’m horriribly ill with a chronic condition that I have which has flared up. I’m on nasty medication that’s making me sick and my mum couldn’t come until late yesterday afternoon… These things have a knack of happening when Bf is away, sods […]
