A Pilot’s ‘unique’ blend of parenting advice (Aviation Humour)

January 12, 2011

I thought I’d post this purely because it brought a smile to my face at a difficult time. It was actually sent to me by my Mum.  I do hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!   Supernanny needs to take tips from this airline pilot’s ‘How To’ Guide on corrective parenting… Most […]

Standby SUCKS!

May 6, 2009

Life is a funny mixed up bag you know.  Bf is away on a trip that we had originally hoped would be a family holiday. Swine flu seems to have scuppered that little plan. A shortage of holidays available means that there are no free seats left for us 😦 It sucks not to be […]

July 4, 2008

I’ll warn you now, that this post has nothing to with aviation, or the man in my life… I wrote this post just for me, but feel free to tag along for the read if you wish! I’ve had a truly lovely time with my children this evening. What were we doing? Nothing particularly out of the […]
