Been sitting on the news that we're going to be grandparents in September until child 2 and 2a shared their news online. Blog posts have been scheduled for 15 weeks now and I'm so excited to be able to talk freely now. Have really respected 2a's wishes, just found it frustrating as I was worried I'd slip up.
118 Sunday A round of goodbyes with my mum, a friend and the twins, niece and the Things a pub lunch and a pint and back to mums to finish a small DIY job and then another friends in the evening. Packed and had an early night.
View from a friend's house in Wales.
119 Monday Up early, dressed and out for breakfast and coffee while the washing machine was on, then drove to Birmingham airport for our flight home. Uneventful flight other than a minor scuffle with a few passengers that got them moved and I took advantage of the 3 empty seats.
We rarely fly together.
120 Tuesday A lie in then off to the nail bar, collected the cat and dog from boarding, went for a swim and unpacked the suit cases. We had an early night.
Opposite weather, although both drives us indoors.
121 Wednesday Went swimming then had breakfast before enjoying a coffee at the Souk Madinat then off to the Doctors for an iron infusion, drove home stopping off for a McDonald's, went to bed to finish binge watching Line of Duty, took Bob for a walk then bed at 8pm.
It would appear neither of these think they got fed while we were away.
122 Thursday Up early to walk Bob and take some photo's of the train station and local construction, did a bit of gardening (sweeping sand) then retreated indoors to do some batch cooking. Went out at 9am for a coffee and get the zip repaired on my Coach bag, followed by a swim in the afternoon.
123 Friday Off early to the beach, spent 3 hours there, people watching, swimming and reading. Home and nothing till 6pm when we got ready for dinner with friends.
The view from the 68th floor looking down on Iris Bay.
124 Saturday A trip to the Mall and coffee, then off to the beer and wine shop, followed by a food shop on the way home. We BBQ'd in the evening and off for an early night.

Congratulations, Grandma! It must be so nice to be able to share your news now.ReplyDelete
Some fantastic views in your photos this week. That weather is a real contrast! I can't believe it's going to be five degrees when I start running in Newport tomorrow!
It is great to be sharing the news. The weather was great the first few days in the UK and now too hot back homeDelete
Oh wow! No wonder you lose track of what day it is. You are jetting about a lot.ReplyDelete
So glad the news is out about that you are going to be a grandparent! Congrats.
I still need to start watching Line Of Duty. I'll get around to it eventually.
Line of Duty is fab, can't believe I hadn't already watched itDelete
Wow, love those building shots. Great photos. Hope you're feeling better after the iron transfusion now. Congratulations on the upcoming grandchild. Hope 2a is feeling good during her pregnancyReplyDelete
Thank you, am feeling a little better but it'll be up to 6 weeks until I know if it's worked properlyReplyDelete
Will be nice to have another grandparent blogger in our group. Congrats to 2 and 2a.ReplyDelete
I would not like that view, far to high for my liking.
That is a temperature difference. We leave the washing machine in when we are pout as well despite the fact we are not suppose to.
the windows slant outwards so there's a slight feeling of falling forward when you get too close. I only leave the washing machine on when i'm near byDelete
Congratulations! It's nice to be able to share the news publically. Hope the transfusion works well for you.ReplyDelete
so far so good with the transfusion, no nasty side effects like last timeDelete
Awww congratulations. Them shots of the building just show the amazing architecture of Dubabi XReplyDelete
it is stunning hereDelete
Such wonderful news, Suzanne! The view of Wales is spectacular. Don't envy you the temperatures over 30C. That view from the 68th floor gives me vertigo. Don't think I could climb so high.ReplyDelete
You don't realise just how high you are as there are still buildings towering above youDelete
I can imagine it being very difficult to keep quiet when you've got exciting news. Do you nap when the temperature is at it's highest? #365ReplyDelete
thank you, yes have regular napsDelete
Congratulations on the news! How exciting...must have so hard to keep it quiet.ReplyDelete
Loving the views in your photos. We went Wales in the summer and miss those views.
thank you, it's been really hard keeping it secretDelete
Aww congratulations, that is lovely and so nice to share the news. So many great photos here. I really miss the sunshine. The weather looks fab xxReplyDelete
thanks, the weather has been ideal since we got back from the UK, but it's now getting too hot to be outside for too longDelete
Congratulations! It must be so exciting to know the next generation are on their way! #project365ReplyDelete
it is indeedDelete
