One Daily Positive Week 16

I got out of sync with numbering the days for Project 365, thankfully it was only a week's worth that I needed to alter the day on.

It was a bank/public holiday on Saturday, Eid Al Miraj, as it fell on a weekend not everyone was given the Sunday as an additional day off. Peter was therefore off work on Sunday and it threw me for the rest of the week, especially as Peter worked from home on Wednesday also.


Eid Al Miraj is the night Allah took Mohammed on a journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and then onto heaven.

Peter is away next week in Kuwait, so it'll be anther quite week, with trips to the dog park, pool and coffee shops.

105 Sunday My car was fixed and ready for collection. Peter went on home to watch the grand Prix after a coffee and I walked round the local mall and met a friend for lunch. In the afternoon and evening we chilled out in the garden and had a BBQ with a friend who stopped over on his way back from working in China. 


106 Monday Woke up to thunder and rain, not a lot, but also discovered I'd left the garden sprinkler on ALL night. Walked Bob, popped out for coffee, tidied the laundry room, went for a swim and cooked dinner for the next 2 nights. Had my pre op in the evening for my bone marrow test and completed the paperwork for medical aid approval. Joined friends for dinner by the beach. 

Would you eat your dinner up there? We didn't BTW.



107 Tuesday Took Bob to the dog park and gave him a bath in the garden late afternoon. Bob ripped a claw, took a bit of persuasion for him to allow me to clip it. He also decided to jump up on my car bonnet and climb over to get to the boot, lots of damage to the car and no idea why he did it. Visited the pool and had an early night. Been feeling exceptionally tired recently, like I have the flu.


108 Wednesday Woke at 4am, after going to bed early after a fantastic sleep. Collected Peter from dropping his car at the service centre. I posted a parcel to child 3 and 3a in Australia and met a friend for coffee. Pub quiz and dinner out in the evening.

This is PO Box xxxxx Near container Terminal 3, Opposite Weir Engineering.
Yes, that is part of our postal address



109 Thursday Spent the day as usual cleaning and sweeping the balconies, went for a swim and had another early night.

110 Friday Up early at 5am which is my usual time. Took Bob for a walk and sat in the garden for a couple of hours before we went to Abu Dhabi to the Louvre. Every now and then this thought goes through my mind, often triggered by road signs or Iconic buildings 'What am I doing living in the Middle East?'

111 Saturday Slow cooker on and off out to Dragon Mart to buy a shed and coffee. Nothing else planned for the rest of the day.

  1. Yeay for your uneventful week!! It does sound like you did lots of little nice things though. With Peter always getting off I have it in my head he is some sort of secret agent for some reason which always makes reading these amusing :) #365

  2. Hope today's dinner tastes good. We never made it down to Abu Dhabi when we were over, hope you enjoyed it. What are you doing about the bonnet? Hope the tests give you some answers at last

  3. An uneventful week must be a relief after many eventful weeks. Hope your tests will provide answers. The slow cooker meal looks delicious. Hope Bob's claw is on the mend. Dogs look cheerful and amused in that photo.

  4. Its so nice to read that you've had a quiet, relaxing week, you certainly deserve it! I'm quite glad I don't have to send you mail, i'm bad enough writing standard address labels!! Fingers crossed the tests give you some answers x

  5. Glad it's been a quiet week. How bizarre Bob decided to climb on the car. Animals are funny!

  6. hehehe! By the end of the year I always end up going wrong with the numbers.
    No, no, no! I would not eat up there....I don't think I could. Everything seems so tall in Dubai. Those road signs look so confusing.
    Hooray for an uneventful week for you. I think you needed one x

  7. That's a very quiet week for you! I usually get my numbers confused at some point too.
    What on earth did Bob do that to the car?
    Hope the tests go well and give you some answers.

  9. we had slow cooked roast beef at the weekend as well. Oh no to Bob damaging the paintwork on the car, and ouch to the ripped claw.
    Thank goodness they write the signs in English as well, I know if we go up north they have signs in English and Gaelic.
    Hope the test results are ok

  10. We have a slow cooker but I have still never used it! Might be a silly question but do you eat a lot of hot food despite the temperature in Dubai? I kind of imagine lots of cold food! #project365
