Day 102 #onedailypositive #SomethingGreen #fmsphotoaday #water #snaphappybritmums #project365
Having just started 'Creating a garden in the desert' with #HDYGG and having a dog that loves rolling in the sand and it being so hot and dusty in Dubai, a hose pipe is an essential. It is used to fill the washing machine as the water temp out the outside tap is 40c so it saves on heating costs, watering the garden, but I'm not sure watering my plants at that temp is actually doing them any good, dampening the sand down when the wind gets up to stop it blowing in the house and washing the dog. although I do that first thing in the morning before the water heats up too much.
Day 103 #onedailypositive #paper #fmsphotoaday #fly #snaphappybritmums #project365
Post, we have post, the good old fashioned paper variety, a new house card from South Africa, a post card and our election papers from the UK. Some sent by airmail, the South African one I think was hand delivered on foot through Africa, the length of time it's taken to reach us, but it reached us, hurrah.
Day 104 #onedailypositive #up #fmsphotoaday #ball #snaphappybritmums #project365
The birthday decorations are Up and tonight we will have a Ball for our sons 16th birthday.
I thought about throwing a ball up in the air and taking a photo, but that doesn't represent my day, maybe in the future I'll use the photo prompts to get creative, but today I've been making ice cream, baking and decorating a cake and I've been creative enough already.
Day 105 #onedailypositive #dinner #fmsphotoaday #love #snaphappybritmums #project365
There is nothing I love more than being with my family, it's just hubby and I most of the year but the 16yo is visiting and for his birthday dinner he chose his favourite restaurant in Dubai, which is in #DubaiMarina. We are also going out for dinner tonight, which is something we always do on the last before any of our visitors leave.
Day 106 #onedailypositive #WhereIWork #fmsphotoaday #pink #snaphappybritmums #project365
Normally today would be a sad day as the teen flies back to the UK, but seeing as I'm following him on Tuesday, the goodbyes will be 'see you later' I don't have a paid job, my visa for the past 5 years has read 'visitor' but I do work, it's not all G&Ts you know. mostly it is housework and a constant battle to keep the sand out the house, or I'm sewing to raise funds for charities in South Africa, or I'm in the kitchen making dinner.
In thinking about where I'm my most productive I decided to post a picture of where I do most most of my blogging and it's any coffee shop that has wifi. My bag is my mobile office and I don't always take my laptop with me, I always have a notebook and a pen or two so I can jot down notes, write letters home etc, it just happens that this months notebook and pen are pink.
Day 107 #onedailypositive #AnOrdinaryMoment #fmsphotoaday #cute #snaphappybritmums #project365
An ordinary moment for me is being knocked off my feet by the dog every time I return home, mind you I get the same cute response even when I leave the room for a few minutes. They say 'get a dog so someone is always pleased to see you'
Day 108 #onedailypositive #fluffy #fmsphotoaday #flowers #snaphappybritmums #project365
I've been joining in with #HDYGG linky on a Friday. These are the latest seeds I've bought and I'm hoping they will be ready to plant out by the time I return from the UK in May, assuming hubby waters them, that is. You just don't know how much effort I put into thinking how to manage todays photo prompts 'fluffy and flowers' however until they flower I'm not sure which is the fluffy one and I think the other seedling maybe a Protea.
