The Dubai Frame

I’m not sure how many words I’m going to have for this. The overwhelming feeling is “ok, I’ve done that now”. Not the most inspiring statement. As the name would suggest, or maybe it doesn’t unless you live here and know about it, The Dubai Frame is a giant photo frame built in Dubai. If…

Random Pictures

Rather than try to catch up on anything, I figured that a random bunch of pics would help explain! I don’t know who to credit this one to as it’s stolen from the internet!  We had about a week of really heavy fog in the mornings, and this is the arial view of that.  Kinda…

The Taxi From Hell

I have found it. The worst yet. Not only has he almost killed us twice in the last three minutes, but he smells so bad I may just vom everywhere. I have asked for all the windows to be opened wide, but it’s not helping. If there is one upside to this god awful, unsanitary,…

More Strange Weather!

After the random blanket of fog on Friday morning (see “Crazy Weather”), Saturday started beautifully.  No fog,  no clouds, just sunshine.

Crazy Weather!

Tourist View of London

(Minus the pictures because I am all comfortable and warm with the puppies and the snuggie on the sofa and the camera is upstairs.  When I move again – not anytime soon – I will add the pics!!) My Bermuda Aussie neighbours arrived at Gatwick on the day of the hideous snow dump.  There was…

Where did the time go?

I work this morning and realised that I am now nearly a month back home.  Where has the time gone?  I have certainly not spent it blogging, have I! I will attempt a short update and then continue to blog on a more regular basis from now on. The Flight Not so bad.  I was…

Tropical Storm Shary

Seriously?!  A Tropical Storm this late in the season AND on a weekend?? Unfortunately, yes. On the plus side, because I need to try to think positively, it is coming on a Friday night.  This means that the worst can be when I am either a) in a bar, or b) curled up on the sofa…
