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 […]

Pam Ann Vs Virgin Atlantic

March 16, 2009

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I just found something that made me laugh sooooo hard that I almost electrocuted myself as I sprayed my laptop with the glass of water I had been drinking! Remember this post where I bitched about the new Virgin ad?  FYI here is the offending advert (please watch it if you’ve not yet seen […]

January 18, 2009

If you’re in the UK, you probably wont fail to notice the new Virgin Atlantic advert.  I’m really in two minds about it. I love the Frankie goes to Hollywood track, and all the 80’s references; but as for all the rest of the kitch, stereotype cliche’s. PLEASE!? Firstly, as Flying High said in her […]

Looking forward to a much needed break!

August 6, 2008

I am SOOOOO tired. Bf got home at 10:30am-ish. I had not managed to get to sleep until 4am because the stress of worrying about his tiredness made me feel more tense and just made my neck feel even more painful. So having had less than 5 hours sleep, I had to dose myself up […]
