About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    I can relate Di. I am not a fan of flying.

    • I love to fly, my first ever being in May 1993. I flew to NZ on my own to spend two months with my brother and enjoyed every minute (apart from an iffy chicken in cheese sauce meal which I had to send back and caused concern for the steward who kept a professional eye on me just in case I became unwell).

        I did get food poisoning, I believe, from a shrimp snack box, on a flight home from Beijing several years ago. Hours in it hit me. It was a miserable flight! I typically imagine my destination to get over my fear of flying.

      • My excitement overran any fears. Like a big kid on that first flight, Hubby mentioned i to the steward and I was invited up into the cockpit, then given the kiddies bag of crayons, postcards and badges. On my NZ flight (and after 9/11) I asked if I could go meet the pilots and was invited up after we’d landed and everyone else had dedplaned. I have a picture of me in the Captain’s seat complete with his cap. They were wonderful!

        Sounds so fun! 😊

    LOL. I remember in our New Zealand news a big kerfuffle recently arose about the pilots doing that. Apparently not allowed in the rules book, so now it has been clamped down on. 🙂
