One Daily Positive - Week 51 Happy Christmas from Dubai

It's been a long week. Whilst I'm busy like this most weeks, there's a hell of a difference between filling each 24 hour period on my own. eating, drinking and sleeping when I want to having someone else with me 24/7. As a consequence I'm suffering with headaches something I rarely have, although I'm a migraine sufferer, and chronic hip and thigh bone pain from a bulging disc and trapped nerve, also my ankle is still vulnerable after tearing ligaments about 10 weeks ago.

350 Sunday I had the Doctors for more blood tests and mum went to see the Christmas trees at the Souk Madinat, we then went to Mall of the Emirates, where she finally saw her big tree. Peter arrived home from South Africa at 9pm.

351 Monday A lazy day, did the washing, blogged and popped out for coffee. Watched movies in the afternoon and took Bob on a long walk in the evening when Peter got home from work. Mum and I shifted the upstairs lounge furniture onto the balcony to prepare the space for new furniture in the New Year and for Bob to get used to his new bed.

352 Tuesday Took Bob to the dog park, Mum isn't keen on dogs, but came with us as there are areas where she can sit away from the other dogs if she wanted to. Home, showered and changed and dropped Peter at the train for the Airport to Saudi.

353 Wednesday I cleaned the house, mum spent the day over at the pool. Dinner and Christmas pub quiz in the evening, Peter got home the same time as us.

354 Thursday Went off to Dubai Festival City, still looking for Christmas trees with mother. Checked out Ikea for some new furniture for upstairs, had lunch out and had cake and chocolate for tea.

355 Friday Met friends for breakfast at Dubai Mall, exchanged gifts and walked around the mall looking at the decorations, in the afternoon Peter and mum went for a drive and I did the food shopping. We had a BBQ in the evening.

356 Saturday Off to Dragon Mart and called in at the Flamingo sanctuary on the way home. Bob and I are finishing the week off at a Christmas Party and meeting Santa.

  4. Goodness, those baubles are ginormous! How lovely that your Mum is with you at this time of the year, and you can do things together. I hope you feel better soon, and that your headache have eased. Bob looks very cute, and I'm impressed that he went to meet Santa.

  6. I find it difficult to have other people with me 24/7 as I find it very stressful.
    Lots of Christmas goings on this week. Love the sleigh picture.
