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.

It must be strange being back in Dubai without your pets. Bob is just adorable.ReplyDelete
It does look odd with the empty seats on the plane. I don't think I could sleep sitting upright.
It sounds like you have had a good week x
I've had to sleep sitting up on many a flight and dream of buisness and first class travelDelete
I bet it is really strange not having Bob and Pushkins there. People are very strange - I'd be all over thise seats like a rash! Hope you're having a good time with your friends #366ReplyDelete
It was a British Airways flight, the Brits are said to be too polite, I was in those seats within seconds lolDelete
It must be strange being back in Dubai without your pets. Bob is so cute. That is a lot of empty seats. Sounds like a good week all in all xxReplyDelete
It is really weird without the pets hereDelete
I couldn't sleep sitting upright! Would have made use of the empty seats!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your time with your friends!
Had a lovely week with my friends thank youDelete
Love that photo of you and Peter. It must be strange to be back in Dubai again. I would never have known that a dog's nose would change colour in the sun!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I think it was sunburn on his noseDelete
Hope you are enjoying the warmth and sunshine back in Dubai although it must feel strange without your pets. The flight does look really empty. I never realised that the sun has an affect on the colour of a dog's nose - you learn something new everyday! #project366ReplyDelete
It is lovely to have some sun, but it's getting warmer quickly, think it was sunburn on Bob's noseDelete
So are there beds on the plane?ReplyDelete
Glad you are enjoying your time back.
Strange his nose has changed colour.
Full beds in first class and fully reclining seats in Business but can't justify the costs of paying up to £6000 for a seatDelete
Enjoy the sunshine! Bob and Pushkins must be missing you. Didn't know about the nose colour changing due to the sun. Your garden looks lovely, with the rhododendron in bloom. Ours usually blooms in May. The empty seats look eerie. You're brave to travel. Nice selfie of Peter and you!ReplyDelete
Thank you, the sunshine is great, but it's getting warmer quickly, am looking forward to when the travelling is overReplyDelete
Well that's an intense colour transition. I guess it's empty because that's a very long flight and also because of fear of coronavirus? Saturday looks like fun. I love Ferrari World, haven't been to Grand Mosque though. The hand and foot prints are adorableReplyDelete
the Grand Mosque is beautiful, would love to spend more time thereDelete
I'd have certainly been lying down. I'm amazed at how green your garden is when you haven't been there to care for it.ReplyDelete
There's so much moisture in the air as we're at sea level and it's really humidDelete
Glad you managed to get flights ok - what's the coronavirus situation in Dubai? Life as normal ? Must be lovely to have a trip back. It's weird when you feel "between two worlds" with a foot in each ! xxReplyDelete
Life is slowly slowing down over here with theme parks and major attractions and schools closed, but no panic buying and the roads are lovely and clearDelete
Is it strange to be back in Dubai and will you be able to come home? #project366ReplyDelete
it's weird being in both countries now, should get back to the UK this tuesdayDelete
