When I left Dubai on March 24th I posted this picture online.
A colleague of my husbands asked why we were smiling when we were going to be apart for an indefinite period of time. We both said it's because we didn't have to quarantine together.
Usually when we visit the UK I come for a month or two and Peter joins me for a week or two. He hits the ground running as we try to pack in as many visits with family and friends. He always wants to get jobs done in the flat we own, but this time we're back in our former family house and whilst I've done as much of the painting, cleaning and minor repairs, it's been great to have the time to just chill out, not charge around and for Peter to get the jobs done around the house.
We had to fill in forms online for permission to return to Dubai as residents before booking our flights. Peter returns on the 14th of August, I'm due to join him on the 18th for 3 weeks. New rules mean we now have to be tested before we can board the plane, rather than on arrival in Dubai. It's been a complicated and expensive process to find a lab that the UAE recognise and will provide a certificate for travel, costing £120 each. Still got 2 weeks to go, so who knows what else we'll be required to do before we can get home.
Stephanie and I love would love to know what you've been up to this week.
