Corona Chronicles – Day 5

Thankfully after a good nights sleep, I woke up feeling slightly more human. Not back to normal but at least less miserable. I also finally listened to the doctor and upped my medication. I have had a horrible couple of days and do not want to repeat that.

Corona Chronicles – Day 2

I had a better nights sleep last night, so woke feeling much more positive. Thankfully. I cannot cope with the lows for very long. The very exciting thing of the day though was to wake with words in my head! I haven’t had this for a long time (which is why I haven’t finished writing…

Corona Chronicles – Day 1

Last night, an alert was sent out. Dubai is to be in 24hr lock down for a minimum of 2 weeks. I would like to state here that I fully respect the decision made by the government of my Emirate and that of the country which I live. I believe they are doing what is…

My First Wreath Making Attempt

Hands up if you didn’t know that I was addicted to the Hallmark Channel! No one? Oh good! So it won’t come as much of a surprise then that when given the chance to go wreath making, I absolutely jumped at it!

Haskins Garden Centre

One way you can shift me off the couch the day after an overnight flight with maybe a total of an hours sleep, is to bribe me with breakfast. A cooked breakfast. A proper cooked breakfast with bacon. And sausage. And egg.

Christmassing with the Family

Everyone always says that Christmas is about the children. I mostly agree with that statement although like to think that I’m actually still a child really so it’s about me too! This year however I went back to the UK in the run up to Christmas and spent time with my niece and nephews. I…

My Chocolate

As laid out in my previous two posts (here and here), Mummy and I do love a good adventure.  With this in mind and knowing that I would be home on certain dates, I bought us a chocolate making class via Virgin Experiences.  It was a bit of a random gamble but I went with…

Our London Adventure – Pt 2

After eating a lot of very yummy pasta at Prezzo, and realising that it was technically still Rush Hour, we decided to walk across the road to Trafalgar Square.  Naturally I had to sing “Feed the Birds” despite the fact there are no birds to feed anymore. I couldn’t tell you the last time I…

Our London Adventure – Pt 1

As anyone who has read my blog knows, Mummy and I do enjoy a good adventure.  We also like stage shows.  We do like food too.  So when we go off adventuring and it includes not only a show but yummy eats too, we feel like we have hit the jackpot! One such trip was…

My Holibops

Hello everyone! I’ve been a bit quite because a) I wasn’t very well and b) then I went home for a couple of weeks of “rest”.  It is never actually a restful holiday as any expat knows.  It is literally spent chasing around seeing as many friends as you can, and trying to maximise your…
