Welcome back to this weeks #PoCoLo with Stephanie and I. You'll notice a change this week as I'm back in the UK. I've had two great months in Dubai with my husband, apart from a few blips with Covid. I have a job to do over here and that's to continue my role as a home maker, preparing for when Peter retires and building the next chapter in our lives together, which will see me return to the world of work.
No idea what I'll be doing work wise. I've been involved in a few charities in South Africa since we moved there 10 years ago this month, but sadly due to covid I've not been able to get hands on this year. I taught for a year in an Arabic school for 14 months over in Dubai in 2015/2016 and the past 3 years I've been working with the European Golf Tour.
The golf finished on Sunday, I had a PCR test before leaving the site, ready to return to the UK. Had the 2nd dose of my Covid Vaccine on Monday, packed my case and flew into Birmingham on the Tuesday. Said Hello and Goodbye to my house sitters, greeted the cat and dog and did nothing for the rest of the day. I had a food shop delivered on Wednesday and whilst I am exempt from isolating, I have chosen not to leave the house other than to walk the dog for the next 10 days which will be early in the morning to avoid contact with people.
I'm actually more concerned about coming to the UK and catching Covid than I am about people coming here and spreading it. I need to read up a bit more about the rules and when this lockdown finishes and focus on finding another house and pet sitter so I can get back to Dubai as soon as and for as long as possible.
I've linked up with my Winter holiday in Dubai and you'll see how much more freedom I've had over here due to the lower numbers in the population and the tight laws. I've had 2 hotel stays, 2 hospital stays and 1 surgery, had my hair cut twice, nails done 3 times, eaten out, worked with large sporting events. Been required to have 6 PCR tests, all negative and enjoyed time with friends. I cannot reiterate how much Face, Hands and Space makes a difference.
