The realities of being married to a pilot…

19/06/2017 Comments Off on The realities of being married to a pilot…

Everybody assumes that being married to a pilot must mean a glamorous jet set lifestyle. If being woken up at 3am for your husband to leave for work falls into that camp, then I wholeheartedly agree… otherwise maybe not.

This week has been an exceptionally hard one with Bells being inconsolable due to yet another nursery illness. Poor Dickie’s been working really long hours and by the time he’s arrived home, I’ve been either ready for gin or bed…. sometimes both.

The video for this week compares our day….

With so many awful things going on right now and with my mind constantly going back to the poor victims of the London fire, I am so grateful for our life, I know that there are so many more people much worse off than us. I hope that you take this video in the spirit in which it was intended.

… and yes, Dickie actually told me that “every day is a Saturday for me”. Shockingly, we’re still married ??.

Happy Father’s Day to all the men out there, keep doing an awesome job.
