Post Comment Love 24th - 26th April 2020

I was supposed to be packing ready to return to Dubai on Monday, but that's not happening now or for the foreseeable future. Both my husband, Peter and I reached the conclusion we probably won't see one another again until September.

I had to sign a mandatory form upon leaving Dubai on March 24th to agree to a two week isolation in a medical facility upon my return, so until they allow tourists back in, I won't be returning. Although Peter could return to the UK and work from here, there are unanswered questions about his work visa, should he not be able to return within 6 months.

We're used to spending 2-3 months apart on a frequent basis, and I was due to be away for 5 weeks, however this is different as we don't have an end date to work towards. We chat several times a day on the phone.

Anyway all is good, I've been occupied with restoring the garden and redecorating the house and have been quite creative with using what I have around the house to do some fun projects also, which I'll share next week.

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Stephanie and I would love to know what you've been up to this week.

  1. Keep strong. I hope the situation resolves itself for you before then.

  2. This must be so frustrating for you. An end in sight would be good wouldn't it, even if it is a few months away, just an end to look forward to would be good. xx

    1. Emirates have announced I can now return if i want to

  3. Oh no! That's terrible! I am so sorry you and your husband are separated for the foreseeable future. I am glad you have some projects to keep you busy.

  4. That must be difficult to now know when you'll see each other again. My cousin is working in Switzerland... He would usually come back to the UK for the weekend and then travel back, but of course he's now stuck in Switzerland on his own. Anyway, I hope you're safe & well and hopefully it won't be too much longer before you see each other again.
