Still too hot in Dubai to spend anytime outside, quite a bit of gardening to be done and a house to clean, as well as packing the car ready for Back to School for me on Sunday.
The teen and I have been out everyday, new shoes, clothes and a phone for passing his Maths GCSE, several dental visits for impacted wisdom teeth that need removing, a haircut and Brunch on Friday. He flies back to Boarding School on Wednesday for his last year in school and on Thursday child 3 of 5 arrives for a fortnight with his girlfriend, who we've yet to meet.
While I was in the UK I bought and wrapped Christmas presents for the family and this week I've made a start on writing Christmas cards to send back with child 3 of 5, for him to post in November for me.

Day 235 Photography - Sorting out photos from Summer travels
Day 236 Oh Yes! - Finally the hot water tap is cool enough for a shower, however the cold water is still 39c
Day 237 Slow - Old Fashioned communication
Day 238 Staying Cool - Bob dragged his bed under the air con
Day 239 New - Not the most exciting of purchases, but a necessity
Day 240 Green - Still too hot to spend too much time on the beach
I love the way you're so organised about Christmas. Usually I'm a real Scrooge about starting Christmas early, but I totally get why you need to do it. I hope the new girlfriend is nice! Enjoy your time with your son.ReplyDelete
Good luck with your return to school today.

Love that you are nearly done for Christmas. I'd like to do that this year too. I have all the birthdays till November done & plan to do those once my son goes back to school.ReplyDelete

Nice to be home, apart from the heat still.ReplyDelete
Well done on managing Christmas wrapped up.
I used to love receiving letters from my grandparents as a child, we got them once a month.
Well done Bob, sensible move. Lilly lies in front of the fan.
