Back online, but don’t expect much!

May 15, 2012

As some of you may have noticed, I shut this blog down for the past 11 months or so… I am by no means ‘back’ but I keep getting requests from people to view the blog, and I am open minded to let people read it if they so wish, and if it helps you […]

Just when the caterpillar thought it’s life was over, it became a butterfly…

June 21, 2011

I have been feeling very down of late, and I wanted to post this quote to remind myself that perhaps my loss is just not something I can understand… Events in my life have rocked my faith, but whatever I do or don’t believe in… I do know that I believe in butterflies and nature, […]

To blog OR not to blog. That is the dilemma

March 3, 2011

I used to love writing this blog, when I started writing it years ago, I just wanted to write it for myself because I have always kept a diary and decided that starting one online was a natural progression.  I understood that some people might stumble across it and that a few people might read […]

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 […]

Why do emergencies ALWAYS seem to happen when the Pilot is AWAY!?

November 9, 2010

Okay, so I need to vent! I was in SUCH a great mood last night too… Bf had left to do a very quick trip away, and then last night, as I was flossing my teeth, I lost my root filling. I lay awake most of the night, and then was woken to the noise […]

Dancing Stewardesses…

October 8, 2010

OK… So, My gut is telling me I should hate this, but I actually think it’s kind of fun. Its the in-flight safety demonstration by Cebo Pacific Air Flight Attendants for a Low Cost Airline in Manilla, Philippines. It wouldn’t work for British airlines of course because they aren’t allowed to recruit in a way […]

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 […]

It’s not me, it’s you.

September 3, 2010

So, I’m going to do the unthinkable now and shatter the illusion that living with my pilot is bliss. Recently, we’ve been going through a rough patch…  This year has, without a single doubt, been the hardest of my life… For those of you who aren’t regular readers: December – My work at my prior […]

Thromby Air – New Budget Airline ‘Lowest of The Low’

August 20, 2010

Okay, so this is something a bit light-hearted, and it certainly brightened up my day and made me chuckle… Actually that is an understatement, I had tears in my eyes from laughing so much!  I got an email today from someone called Richard E. Coli, who claimed to be the CEO of a new budget […]
