“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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hands off my Pilot, HO!

February 23, 2009

UGH!  I NEED TO VENT! Bf just rang to say goodnight… Some hostie (from a different UK airline also staying in the same hotel as his crew are), who will here on in be referred to as: ‘the cheap ho’ just tried it on with him… So, naturally, he told her about me and Baby, as a […]

March madness

February 20, 2009

Ugh. March sucks! Or maybe should I say, March WILL suck!  I can deal with Bf doing long-haul, but they’re riding him like a pony this month! He’s away from tomorrow for best part of a week, then home for six days, then off for almost a week, then off for a week, then of for four days, back three […]

Skype is a gift from God in a ‘pilot relationship’!

February 4, 2009

Well, today wasn’t too bad. I didn’t even attempt to go to bed until about 3:30am, whenBf Skype’d me after he got back from eating. I had taken my laptop up to bed with me and we talked on web-cam for about twenty minutes.  He suggested I go to sleep, as he knew how late it was, but I […]

Come Home, I miss you…

February 2, 2009

Well, I was just watching music on the the television, and Home started to play, by Westlife…  I had never seen the video before and I’m not too ashamed to say that it made me cry like a baby!  I cannot remember the last time I missed Bf  THIS much!  Here is the video. The video sections that […]

Breaking the airline pilot stereotype, dispelling the myth.

February 1, 2009

Well, Bf has left today. He was supposed to leave yesterday, to stay at a hotel elsewhere in the UK (far away); so that he could fly today from there.  Thankfully, they transferred him to a flight going to the same destination from his base airport instead.  I’m really going to miss him more than usual […]

First Officer Bf, this is ATC, Please stop flying NORDO or I will scramble fighter jets and bring you down!

December 8, 2008

I am a worrier.  I’ll worry about anything.  In fairness to me though, I have experienced a fair share of trauma in life to justify this, and have learned the behaviour from my own mother at a young age.  As you will know if you read my last post, I was feeling a bit down when Bf went […]

The Prodigal Pilot Returns! Let’s slaughter the fatted calf, be grateful and make merry!

September 30, 2008

Well, Bf got back, at last. Though it wasn’t quite the reunion I had hoped for. Bf was, understandably, completely knackered after his eleven hour flight home (as was I from no sleep) and we both crashed into bed asleep, for a few hours whilst baby took her nap. We woke, and I cooked roast chicken. […]
