Catching up

I know I haven't posted on here for ages, but it doesn't mean I haven't been writing the posts. I have just uploaded posts from the end of Nov until now so you can catch up on what has been going on here ... if you're interested! :)

It's raining, it's pouring

Last week was cold. I had to go and buy a jumper (oh the hardship). But this week has been a washout. It started raining a little a few days ago and gradually got worse until half of Dubai had to close because it was flooded, and the number of businesses closed here was catching up. Unfortunately for me, the BC in Abu Dhabi remained open as usual even though all the computers in the reception had to be moved and the lights switched off for fear of electrical fires from the amount of water leaking through the roof!

A good book

I've just finished reading "Selling Olga" by Louisa Waugh. It's a bunch of stories about human trafficking - not a cheery subject, I know but I would really recommend it as it is very interesting and well-written.

New Year 'Fancy Dress'

I bought a beautiful new dress for NYE. A red one from Mango that I had seen months ago and drooled over but resisted from buying. Anyway, I spotted it in the sale last week and snapped it up. Karin also bought a red dress but it wasn't planned that we would both be in red. Nor was it planned that we would end up in a sports bar that had a fancy dress theme of an enchanted forest! What a great start to the new year!
Actually we had lots of fun as you might be able to see from the photos :)
