I've felt incredibly isolated this week. Peter was away Sunday till Tuesday and although I went to the dog park on Tuesday, pub quiz was cancelled on Wednesday and I've been out each day to the mall for coffee. I realised on Thursday that when Peter left the house at 5am, I actually didn't speak to a single person until he came home at 10pm. That'll all change next week as I'm flying to the UK.
244 Sunday Morning spent on the sofa watching the end of The Good Wife, what next? Dropped Peter at the airport for his flight to Saudi, called in at a friends and spent the afternoon and evening on the sofa watching reruns of Glee. Now the migraine and meds have worn off, I can now really feel the after effects of my wisdom tooth removal last week, feel like I've been punched in the jaw.
Whenever I pass the Museum of the Future as a passenger I take a photo for my construction projects I'm documenting.
245 Monday Up at 6.30am after a 10 hour solid sleep. Chores done, dog walked, medical bills claimed, blogging and catching up with soaps. Popped out for a coffee and a swim.
246 Tuesday Off to the dog park, new road system in place which I failed to notice so a 20km detour, home and sorted through some construction photos comparing the differences in Dubai since we've been here. Peter home late afternoon, he caught the train to Ibn Battuta and I joined him for an early dinner of steak, chips and veg off the main menu.
247 Wednesday Changed the bedding and went out for coffee, some cleaning, reading and blogging. It was a long day, so I popped out for a coffee and some food shopping. Caffe Nero had Gluten Free cakes on offer. The other coffee shops don't offer a GF selection of anything.
248 Thursday An early start as Peter was off to Saudi again. I went back to bed till it started to get light then took Bob on a long walk. The day was spent cleaning the house and finishing my packing for next weeks UK trip. A swim in the afternoon.
249 Friday Out for brunch, it was difficult avoiding the wheat with all the yummy breads and cakes on display. The rest of the day was written off and I read a book.
250 Saturday Out for a late breakfast/early lunch on the beach front, afternoon spent in front of the TV, reading and blogging.
We chose to visit a Health Cafe with a wide range of Gluten Free dishes, however it was rather disappointing, the pancakes were dry and tasted early, the 'fresh fruit' was a mere garnish. 10 blueberries, I sliced strawberry and 2 raspberries for £12 and £5 for a latte. Won't be bothering again. As it's only wheat I have to avoid, I can just select salads, fruit, yogurts, fish and meals without sauces from regular menus from now on.
