Most days are just ticking over, so just assume every morning involves sweeping sand from somewhere, walking the dog, washing and/or ironing, swimming and some house work. Followed by a coffee out and some blogging, letter writing and cooking. This is usually all achieved by midday as I start my day around 5am for the outdoor stuff to get done before it gets too hot. This might sound like a lot, but Peter doesn't come home until 6pm, there's a lot of just doing nothing and being alone in the house.
230 Sunday After completing my daily chore list and having coffee, I spent the afternoon tidying up the house, sorting clothes for charity and finding new homes for a lot of unwanted stuff we've accumulated. Caught up with Neighbours, Corrie and Eastenders for the week and filed some paperwork, waiting for Peter to get home.
It feels much cooler out in the mornings before 8am, so dog walks are getting longer.
231 Monday Nil by mouth after midnight and the Doctors for 8.30am for an Endoscope. Have posted an update in the facebook group for Project 365, too long winded for here. Spent the rest of the day on the sofa on facebook and watching The Good Wife, an early night.
Early evening supervising Bob outside
232 Tuesday Off to the dog park for the morning, the usual crowd was there and a few new faces, went out in the evening to get signatures witnessed for some paperwork needed in the UK.
Getting nearer to their dinner time so not moving far from my sight.
233 Wednesday I did the food shop, getting home around midday. I needed a pee, to get changed, have a drink and put the fridge stuff away quickly. I was so hot. In the evening we went to the Premier Inn and Mr Toads for the weekly Pub Quiz, came 3rd. Booked car hire, flights and hotels for Peter and I for the wedding of child 4 and the birth of our first grandchild next month.
Always pestering me for food.
234 Thursday Decided to visit the Marina Mall this morning, fed up of going to the same coffee shop. A whole roundabout disappeared over night, a big one, diversion and new road layout in place but not signposted yet. Did a bit of retail therapy and came home for a lie down.
235 Friday Headed out to Dubai Mall for breakfast at IHOP, a bit of a challenge as I can't eat wheat anymore but staff were brilliant and we found something. Wandered around for a couple of hours, but didn't buy anything. Baked a gluten free cake in the afternoon.
Most of Dubai had rain late afternoon, all we had was a thunder storm.
236 Saturday Up early and batched cooked some soup, then sat in front of the tv. Popped out to Abu Dhabi on a beer run. Supervised Bob in the garden in the heat.
