Welcome back to #pocolo with Stephanie from @lifeat139a and I. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas however and wherever you chose to celebrate. This is the last link up for 2021. Thank you all for joining in every week, it's lovely to connect with so many people on such a wide range of topics.
In Dubai, we'd be wished a Merry Christmas from our Muslim neighbours and colleagues, so I feel no need to wish anyone a Happy Holiday.
Christmas for us as a blended family has always been different. Last year, Saudi closed borders on Peter until the New Year and I spent Christmas on my own in a hotel on the beach in Dubai.
This year, the run up is being spent with me back and forth to Northern Ireland to see child 4, his wife and their new baby. We're here again this week. Christmas day itself will be spent at our home with child 2, his wife and their child.
I've delivered most of the presents, just the neighbours and friends near by to sort now.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and here's to us getting out to Australia to visit our middle son.
We'll send out a reminder in the New Year when we're back.
