Week 60 - My Sunday Photo

Peter spent last weekend in the UK, we spent this weekend with friends from Saudi, next weekend is with friends from South Africa and the following 2 weekends with my mate from the UK. 

Life has had it's shares of ups and downs the past week, from not coping with my new job, to missing the kids and family back in the UK and wanting to jack it all in, whatever the cost and just go home now and settle down. 

It's totally our choice to remain in Dubai for the time being but when you get sent photos like this, the temptation to leave is just too great.

Our son, his girlfriend and our niece.

  4. Having been an expat for over 24 years and returning to the UK two years ago... I can totally understand your feelings.
    We were in Qatar for just over six years... we could have been neighbours!
    It's tough choices in the grown up world.
    Great photo which obviously pull on your heartstrings.

  8. Being away from family can be so hard, but at least you know you're away for a reason and it's for a limited time. Skype is what keeps me from being homesick - social media can be a godsend!
