It was a cold weekend, I was physically shivering outside and inside it was fleecy pj's and socks in bed and sitting under a blanket on the sofa to watch the TV. It was still 22c outside but with a strong wind, sand swirling and a low sun, I just couldn't get warm. Everyone says it's cold here in Dubai at the moment.
20 Sunday I did sod all, all day apart from watch movies and sleep in the chair in the lounge. I had the cat and dog for company until Peter came home.
21 Monday Gave Bob a proper bath, washed all his bedding, swept sand off the balconies and the patio and tidied the garden. Took Peter to the train for his flight to Saudi, did the food shop and had a meeting ahead of the golf this weekend.
22 Tuesday Off to the dog park, always nice to catch up with a few people over a coffee while the dogs run around. IKEA delivery and assembly in the afternoon and I swept through the house after setting up the upstairs TV on the new unit. Peter arrived back from Saudi late.
23 Wednesday Airport run to collect 2 and 2a, after they unpacked and rested I took them to the Marina for a walk round and we had dinner out at the pub quiz.
24 Thursday Dropped 2 and 2a at Dubai Mall for their trip up the Burj Khalifa, I stayed for a coffee then I went off to marshal the golf at the Omega desert Classic for the day, before meeting up with them and Peter for dinner and to watch the light show.
25 Friday We caught the ferry from the Marina to Dubai Creek to explore the museums, souks and a trip on the abra, we got a taxi back to the home and had a bbq in the evening.
26 Saturday Peter took 2 and 2a off to Abu Dhabi and I worked at the golf for the day. Finished the afternoon with a beer sitting on the 15th green.
