More bloody tests, had to go on a lactose and fructose free diet on Sunday in preparation. Started the week with a migraine also, probably too much screen time over the weekend (which is Friday and Saturday for us in Dubai) trying to get google on the new laptop in English as translating Arabic is not easy every time you want to sign into a new account. Peter has been very busy with work this week, so spent a lot of time in the evenings alone
308 Sunday Spent the morning cleaning the house, sweeping up dog hair and sand as we've been able to have the doors open and of course the sand has been blown in. Caught up with blog comments and in the evening had my induction for Marshalling at Jumeriah Golf Estate for the upcoming DP World Tour, Race to Dubai.
309 Monday 3 hours at the doctors, hadn't eaten or drunk since 11pm the night before so straight off to the coffee shop afterwards, got my nails done, visited the garden centre and after sunset planted my new shrubs out. Peter was out for the evening with work. No bonfire night here so Bob and I took a walk around the neighbourhood to look at the Diwali lights.
310 Tuesday Dog park to catch up with human and doggie friends. Did some gardening in the afternoon, suffered with heat exhaustion, it's cooler but still in the low 30's.
311 Wednesday Tested my new walking shoes/trainers out in the Marina Mall today with a friend. Did a food shop and had a nap. Pub Quiz and dinner out. Peter was out with colleagues from work.
312 Thursday Peter announced he was bringing a colleague over for the evening so gave the house a quick dust and swept up the cat hair I seem to be collecting. Popped out for a coffee and another trip to the Doctors for more results and more 'what next?' Can't believe how quickly my seeds are growing.
313 Friday Met friends for breakfast at Dubai Mall then went to see Bohemian Rhapsody, which we really enjoyed, spent the evening in the garden.
314 Saturday Woke up to a mess downstairs from Bob, he'd been poorly in the night, think it was the raw bone I'd given him the day before. Popped out for coffee and off to a Thanksgiving dinner this evening.
On the blog this week:
Why I'm sick of being sick. I've really had enough of test after test and for what?
Autumn and Spring on my travels to UK, Dubai and South Africa
What makes good customer service? I'm fed up of being laughed at when I ask a question.
They're building on the beaches in Dubai
Suzanne, I'm hoping this round of tests will turn up some answers for you. Be careful in the heat! I don't tolerate heat well at all. I'm going to check out the Nine to Three Thirty blog now.ReplyDelete
thank you, I've upped my water intake as I realised I was quite drinking enoughDelete
Ugh! More tests! I hope they went OK and give you some answers.ReplyDelete
The Diwali lights are so pretty. I would much rather look at them than bonfires or listen to fireworks.
Wow! That mall is huge!
Aww! Poor Bob! I hope he's better now.
that Mall is a small one lol, there have been fireworks with diwali and I've enjoyed watching them from the upstairs. Bob has fully recovered now, thank you for askingDelete
Sorry to hear about all the endless tests and sorry to hear Bob was poorly too! Hope he is better now. That second to last photo is stunning.ReplyDelete
Bob is fully recovered now, i suspect it was too much boneDelete
Can't believe there's so many tests hat are still going on. Although my brother's in the same situation. 5 years of ongoing chronic fatigue, and tests for everything under the sun. He's finally getting somewhere, although they've found something in his kidney so has to have a CT scan to find out what. Hopefully solveable and not as worrying as we're imagining it to be.ReplyDelete
sorry to hear your brother is still struggling for a diagnosis, hope the kidney scan is positiveDelete
Those tests are relentless, hope some firm answers will be forthcoming soon. Poor Bob! You and mum will have to meet at some point and you can compare sand sweeping stories! It’s amazing how much they get where they are #365ReplyDelete
I'm sure your mum and I could share quite a few interesting stories about life abroadDelete
The endless tests must be so dispiriting. Hope they will give you the right answers. Diwali lights look pretty. 30C in November, eek, I would find that hard. Poor little Bob, hope he's recovered.ReplyDelete
thank you, i think we're getting there slowlyDelete
Low 30's is still pretty hot!ReplyDelete
Hope these lot of tests give you some answers. Must be so frustrating
it is indeed and I need to remember thatDelete
I'm jealous of the heat you have but I'd be hiding indoors so no risk of heat exhaustion for me! I loved the Bohemian Rhapsody film too. #project365ReplyDelete
it does get boring not having actual weatherDelete
