I’m Proud of Me

That is not a statement that you will hear very often, but in this case it is completely true! Recently I was invited karting.  Yes, people still do the go-karting thing that I thought had died out back in the early 2000’s!  I was really chuffed to be asked along because it’s a group I…

3 Day Juice Cleanse – Day 2

7.30am – Snuggle back down into duvet as no breakfast making means longer lay in. 7.45am – Go waste time in the shower. 8.00am – Start Juice 1 shots. 8.01am – Get pleasant surprise that the juice tastes better today. 8.23am – Have last shot.

Claw BBQ Crabshack & Grill, Dubai

I would like to give a shout out to Claw in Souk Al Bahar, which is consistently good.  So few places are anymore. From the food to the team; there is no bad here as far as I can tell. I had a bit of a rubbish day so to cheer me up The Boy took…

Avoca-do or don’t?

  According to Slimming World rules, avocados have syns.  10 syns per 100g to be precise.  It seems like a lot. The avocado pear is one of the most nutrient packed fruits around.  It has vitamins B, C, E and K for a start.  It also has a bunch of other things that I can’t remember and…

Snappy Chatting

I was having one of my regular Facebook mumbles the other day and used the phrase “hot as a bastard oven” to describe the weather at the moment.  I think this is a very accurate way to sum it up.  However… My coworker thought it was the funniest thing she had read in forever, and was still…

Veuve Brunch!!!!

That’s right peeps!  There is a brunch that has Veuve Clicquot!!!!!! Look….. I kind of don’t want to write this because then you’ll all know about it and it will get super popular.  If that happens, I won’t be able to get a table as often as I would like to!  I have a feeling…

Pork Ribs and Margaritas

I am not someone who goes out all the time.  I like to stay home and cook or bake, and watch tv.  That is how I relax and and I am very happy with being a borderline hermit! Thursday nights are especially ‘indoorsy’ for me.  I made it through the week.  I want to enjoy…

Minions

I’ve been mulling this over for a few days, and I can’t see it any other way….  The movie “Minions” was a spectacular disappointment. I loved Minions.  I had been crazy excited about the movie opening in Dubai so I could finally see it.  My friend and I got tickets for the first available showing…

Nezza’s

As you know, I was crazy excited when my neighbourhood “local” reopened its doors this year. It used to be such a good place to be. I blogged up a storm about it (here) because I was so excited! Not so much anymore.  However, I am not going to post a long whinge about the inept…

Wimbledon

Apparently I am having a controversial few days. My last post on fox hunting is in keeping with most people’s desire to have the ban stay in place, but not many people would say they dislike foxes.  Oh well.  It’s true and I stand by it.  I also don’t like hamsters, in case you want…
