It is weird being 'home' without the cat and dog, the weather is warmer but still a bit chilly in the evenings
61 Sunday A walk to the retail park for coffee with Bob, then home sorting out photo's, online accounts and blogging, a Sunday lunch early evening and my friend Debbie who is visiting Dubai this week, popped up to say hi and will be walking Bob daily either side of her trip.
In Dubai Bob's nose was more pink, sinc he's been out the sun, it's going dark again.
62 Monday Not taking much with me back to Dubai, my case has just my over night stuff for tonight and 2 nights back in St Albans on my return. Train took 3 hours with 2 changes, let myself in and then popped out for a coffee and a walk around the City.
63 Tuesday Up early to Heathrow for my midday flight, arriving at midnight, same time as Peter who had been in Saudi since Sunday. Flight was half empty, both Terminal 1 and 3 were unusually quiet for that time of night.
Whats wrong people? I lay down and slept most of the fight, these seats were unoccupied for the whole flight. They stayed in their seats, sleeping sitting upright.
64 Wednesday Slept till midday then off to the mall for coffee and some food shopping, pub quiz in the evening.
The garden was a bit overgrown, will have to sort, but also have to sell it.
65 Thursday Dr's for a blood test, nail bar, coffee and home to clean the garden and the upstairs ready for our guests tomorrow.
All this was washed down from the bedroom bacony.
66 Friday cleaned downstairs, I challenge anyone to find another cat or dog hair. Out for coffee, then off to visit friends here, we do the pub quiz with and see their new house. Lazy evening in the garden and off to the airport to collect Debbie and Paul. Debbie is my friend and neighbour from the UK, we've known each other for 18 years, she visited our old house in Dubai in 2015, this is her husbands first visit here.
Our grandchild's 1st hand and foot prints, our DIL made them out of salt dough, nut sadly in the heat they went mouldy so I cast them in plaster of paris.
67 Saturday Off to Abu Dhabi to the Grand Mosque for a visit, then to Ferrari World and Yas Mall. A BBQ and champagne in the garden. We exploded all the myths about Dubai in one day.
