One Daily Positive - Week 14

More dental work, more medication. Temps hit 36c this week and the humidity levels are climbing. I'm spending most of summer in Dubai this year, although I have 2 weeks out during Ramadan, which will help and 2 weeks the end of June.

I'm so bored. It always seems like I do an awful lot in the day, but I don't have kids or the mess that comes with it, or a job to switch off from and with Peter out the house every day for 10 hours, there's a lot of time to fill, even more so this week with him away.

Dubai isn't a big place, the furthest distance I'd drive is from home to The Creek, the other end of the city which is 35km/21miles. Time of day, ie work/school runs depends on whether it takes me 30 mins or an hour.

Dental work went well, but I really felt the effects of the time I've spent in the dental chair with my chronic neck pain and had felt really ill a couple of times with migraine and dizzy spells.

90 Sunday Next phase of dental surgery, only 2 hours this time and 8 stitches in my lower jaw. The most painful part to date was the removal of the stitches from the upper gum. I cried. Home and spent the day snuggled on the sofa. Peter flew to Saudi for most of the week, he bought me flowers for Mother's Day.

91 Monday I walked Bob then took myself off to City Walk where I wanted to blog and drink coffee, sadly no where to just sit and relax other than benches in the sun, so I came home, made lunch and set the garden up to sit outside, but it got too hot. Made some soup for dinner, watched TV, did some blogging and paid some more bills. Peter phoned and said he was actually home tomorrow, not Wednesday

92 Tuesday Took Bob to the dog park, coffee and natter for us humans. Called in at doggy day care  for Bob to have a bath on the way home. Spent the afternoon in bed and read a whole book. Went to bed early with a migraine. Peter arrived home late afternoon, i didn't thik he was back till Wednesday.

93 Wednesday Bloody raining again, everything brought indoors, did some washing, went out for coffee and back to bed with the migraine. We need a new gas meter at our rental house in the UK, another thing to sort grrrrrrrr.

94 Thursday A visit to the dentist to have the final stitches removed, booked the dates for the next part of the surgery. I have 2 months rest now for graft and implants to settle/heal. I stopped off for a coffee and had a gel mani and pedi. Ended the day with a walk on the beach.

95 Friday Back to the beach with Peter for the morning, then stopped for lunch on the way home. Out early evening for a food shop and a coffee and spent the rest of the evening watching TV and snacking.

96 Saturday Coffee at the garden centre, looked at getting a new car, popped in at a mall for a bit of shopping, I picked up some new books, then home to chill out, watch movies and have dinner. neither of us feeling too well. Peter with heavy cold and sore throat, me, just me and constantly ill or in pain.

On the blog this week:

The return of #mysundayphoto and that means more construction photography. Dubai Water Canal and Tolerance Bridge.

Creating a garden in the desert. Finally the sand and rain has gone.

  2. I always thought Dubai was much bigger. I always learn something when I read your blog.
    I'm glad the dental work has gone well.
    Your Mother's day flowers are lovely.
    I hope you and Peter both feel better soon x

  3. Sorry to hear about the migraines. The dental work sounds pretty brutal, but I'm glad it's gone well so far. Love the photo of Bob being dried. I can just imagine how bored you are. My son has been away this week, which makes my day longer (no school run). I've also had no work some days and very little work on other days and the days have been so boring!

  4. very possible the angle of your neck causing the migraines.
    Yes I guess when you have all day every day to be bored and a lot of the time alone it does get boring. Have to say we have so much to do within a 20 mile radius of here and we probably don't appreciate it.
    Glad you now have a rest from the dental work.

  8. It must be so tough to have that time to fill and knowing the weather will be sauna like too soon. Wish you were closer! Glad you've got a few months off the dental work now and hope they settle well #365

  9. It sounds very hot, we were meant to go to Dubai in February on holiday but my son was poorly so didn't make it. We decided it would be too hot to rearrange it now the insurance has paid out. I couldn't cope with those temps! Hope you manage to find ways to keep busy, but reading is a lovely pastime x

    1. We've only had a few hot days so far, usually much hotter by now, rain and sand storms are our biggest problem at the moment

  10. Oh no sorry to hear the removal of the stitches was so painful! Glad you have a bit of a break now. Must be hard when the weather is so hot and you can't do much. It is one of the reasons I hate going to Pakistan when it gets warmer....it's hard to do anything during the day and we all get so bored
