We had a massive storm on Monday night, the windows are covered in sand as are the cars, balconies, patio and garden furniture again.
315 Sunday Up early to take Peter to the airport as he's off to Saudi for the night. Got home at 5.30am and walked Bob and spent the next couple of hours sitting in the garden, blogging. I had to shut the cat in her room as the weather was gorgeous and had all the doors and windows open. We had the air conditioning units serviced, I paid some bills, then visited my friend for a couple of hours before going for a MRI scan. The afternoon I sorted through the Christmas decorations and watched the football before bed. I've a bulging disc and trapped nerves which are causing the leg pain on the left side.
Tis is the darkest it gets here in Dubai
316 Monday Slept till 8am and just pottered around, pooped out for coffee and get a 'fail safe' salad for dinner. Peter arrived home at 4pm and we just watched Netflix, ate and drank wine.
Window cleaning after the rain
317 Tuesday A very early start for the golf, had an amazing day, had to google the players lol, walked 11.5km, felt broken, have golfers tan and had to google nearly all the players.
318 Wednesday Spent the morning at my friends house with Bob and used their pool. Friends are on holiday we were just checking all was OK.
319 Thursday Back at the golf. had the most amazing experiences. Met some of the world's top golfers and spent time with them in the players lounge, on the driving range and chaperoning them from place to place.
This was the only photo I took all day, not allowed to take pictures of the players when you're working. It's the way abck to the car park at the end of the day
320 Friday Golf again and loving it even more. Spent an hour in the TV studios. Everyone is laughing at me as a golfer walks by and I have no idea who it is or when I introduce myself and then ask their name, however I did know who Sam Torrence was but only when he spoke. Got a little upset when I got home to share my day with Peter, as my dad would've loved to have heard my stories and seen my pictures.
321 Saturday Golf for 7am, I get a time sheet the night before, no idea what I'm actually doing until I arrive. Previous role has ended and I've no idea what I'll be doing tomorrow either.
I took this picture yesterday before I started work, I have no idea what time I'll finish this evening and I'm straight to bed when I get in.

How to marshal at the European Tour.
Building with bamboo
Glad to hear you had a great week, though trapped nerves and bulging disc sound very painful. Your day at Pro Am Golf sounds fun! I know nothing about golf. You look fit and happy. I also find myself at times, when I see something, how much my Dad would have enjoyed that.ReplyDelete
thank you, i was happy but 10-12 hour days on my feet, I certainly realised I'm not fit at allDelete
What an exciting thing to do, but how sad that you can't tell your dad about it. The bulging disc and trapped nerve sounds very painful.ReplyDelete
I tis sad, but i'm accepting of it now so don't struggle as much as i didDelete
That pool is amazing! I would love a pool (although it's a bit cold at the moment!) #365ReplyDelete
the dog loves itDelete
Oh wow! That's fab about being an extra. Such a shame you couldn't do it.ReplyDelete
That is crazy how light it still is in Dubai.
You look so sporty in that golf outfit! It sounds like you had fantastic fun!
ha sporty, glad I looked the part, i certainly don't feel it after the week lolDelete
Sounds like a busy but exciting week!ReplyDelete
So cool that you almost got cast as an extra! Sorry to hear about the bulging disc and trapped nerve!
it has been busy but i've really loved itDelete
Sounds like a fun time at the golf even if you have had to work. I'd have been just the same with the names of golfersReplyDelete
I got to see far more than I would've done as a spectator, even if I did have my back to the action most of the time lolDelete
a fantastic experience and some great memories, your Dad would be proud of you.ReplyDelete
Playing golf in that heat does not sound like fun.
Friends with a pool are good friends to have.
thank you Elaine, it was quite nice to be doing something almost in his memoryDelete
It looked like such a great week for you, even with not being able to share your experiences with your Dad. I'm quite chuffed that I actually knew who a couple of them were myself! #365ReplyDelete
I know all the golfers now, well the one's i met anyway. it was a fab week, it's just strange that in my family no one other than my dad is really interested in what i get up toDelete
Will you try and do golf marshalling again next year? It looks like you enjoyed it #project365ReplyDelete
i'm doing the next one in Abu Dhabi in JanuaryDelete
