Fujairah & Misty Mornings …

Hey so we had a really busy weekend this week and we did alot of stuff … firstly though before I get into everything we got up to this weekend … I woke up quite early on Saturday morning about 6.30am and when I looked outside the window everything was misty and cloudy … it was really lovely and with the sun coming up behind the buildings across the Marina … so grabbed my camera and took a snap to share … and to show Perry once he woke up!

Working from Home & Weekend Plans

Another week over … we’ve been here 7 weeks now and it feels like we’ve been here ages already …

I have been working from home this past week for a number of reasons I wont bother boring you all with … but it has meant that I’ve had quite some spare time around the flat … and in between doing my work I have developed an intense desire to cook! … which for those of you who know me know that I have never been too fond of cooking … but turns out all I was missing was some decent inspiration …

Final Dental Trip and Go-Pro Experiments!

Ok so this morning was my final Dentist appointment to fix the tooth that decided to partially fall apart while I was eating ice cream (for the full story see here) …

I headed off this morning on my own cause Perry was still feeling rather poorly … he had an incredibly bad headache and could barely get out of bed … so got him some pain killers and called and made him an appointment to go see a Dr about it in the early afternoon … so with Perry back in bed sleeping I hijacked the Go-Pro and decided to do a little time lapse of my trip to the Dentist this morning … It was a bright sunny day (as usual) and I thought it would be fun to document this trip as it will be my last to the dentist for a while (or so I hope) …

Short and Sweet….

This is just a quick blog post before we head out for some dinner along the beach front with some friends.

Earlier this week a new toy arrived for me in the post from the good ol’ USA. I decided because I don’t have a camera (Mina’s the photographer in this relationship) that I should get myself something to take video’s and photo’s.

1DAY6CITIES … and being ill …

Ok … so a few developments this week since I last blogged … I’ll get the less interesting stuff out of the way first …

Both Perry and I have been quite poorly with head colds and flu like symptoms which we have traced back to the excessive use of airconditioning in our perspective offices … urgh … not fun being ill … but were all stocked up on Lemsip and cold&flu pills and it seems that now the worst of it is over … still abit sniffly but nothing horrendous …

Dune Bashing, Burj Khalifa and Rain!

Its been a while since we’ve updated this blog but we have been really busy the past few days … and here is a recap of the last week … with lots of photos to accompany it … Enjoy!

So after finishing my first week at work I must say I was quite knackered … but surprised by how much more alert I was in the mornings here compared to when I had been working in London … possibly something to do with it being warm and sunny when I leave home rather than grey and miserable! … But I have found that the afternoon’s do lag quite a bit … especially as I have to work till 6pm! But first week is over and we have an extended weekend coming up due to the Eid Al Adha celebrations … so we get the Sunday and Monday off work … which is perfect timing as my cousin Mehran came to visit us this weekend!
