Hope prevails

July 15, 2010

Bf has just left today on his first trip (without me) since he got stuck away in the volcanic ash cloud that put a 12 day spanner in the works a few months back!  I actually don’t mind this one at all.  I dont mean that to sound bad, I miss him, but in a […]

I’m having a self-pity-party, and you’re all invited…

December 12, 2009

I just NEEDED to post and vent my frustration and upset, so please excuse my negative outburst… I’m really suffering tonight; not feeling at all well and I can’t sleep because of the disgusting, acrid, chemical taste in my mouth from the medication. I know it’s supposed to make me better, but the side effects […]

Trip Culture

January 13, 2009

Well, we had a fantastic time together. I didn’t manage to get an upgrade on the way out, because the flight was too busy. I actually bagged the last seat, which was pretty lucky. The plane was delayed for aaaaaaages, so long in fact, that Bf and the rest of the flight deck went into […]

Stom clouds passing without any disruption

January 6, 2009

I’m off on a trip with Bf tomorrow. It’s a work trip for Bf, so he’ll be flying us there… Luckily I am on a confirmed seat, so no standby (non-rev) travel stresses to get in the way of the experience (even though I did pay an arm and a leg for the ticket).  We’re […]

Travelling with my pilot on a crew trip

November 15, 2008

Well, as promised, the details of my trip with Bf… As I mentioned previously, my ticket was confirmed. I had wanted to avoid the usual stress of standby (non-rev) tickets.  It actually felt quite strange to be able to check in at a normal time, and not have a lump in my throat, and a queasy […]


November 14, 2008

Well, I’m back. I feel absolutely exhausted… I’ve been up for 20 hours without much rest, (I’ve had to entertain baby for the 1 hour transfer journey, goodness knows how long in the airports, and of course; the eleven hour flight duration). That said; I wanted to catch up on my emails, eBay items that I was watching/have won, and of […]


May 28, 2008

  Well, what can I say… The time away was amazing! We went away, just the two of us for a few days…  No expense was spared by Bf.  I normally tend to like to pay my own way, and split costs for dates and social outings (I was always brought up to pay my own way) but […]
