About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    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. 🙂
