Changes to the Blog … Weekly Roundup … Weekend Plans …

Hey Everyone,

So I’ve been playing around with reorganising the Blog a little bit … I felt it was starting to get abit unorganised and … most of you know by now I like to have things in order … so I’ve created some categories and you can browse the posts from the drop down menus at the top of the page …

I’ve also updated our About Us page which was abit outdated and needed a revamp …

I had also been talking about setting up a dedicated Photography page for my work … both to share my personal photography and client work … however, I don’t really have enough time to maintain two separate blogs and I wouldn’t want to do a second one if it was only going to be half hearted … so I’m going to start posting some of my Photography related posts here too …

And of course for those of you who follow the blog for the kittens there is a dedicated Kittens section on the Menu bar at the top of the page … and other than the regular updates on the kittens regarding their specific antics … I’ve decided to do a weekly Caturday post of the Instagram photos I take of them … I do take alot of pictures of the boys during the week on my phone … usually cause its at hand for those occasions where something adorable is happening and I dont have time to go grab my SLR …

I’ve also split the other posts between Life/Personal posts and Travel Related posts too … and that is pretty much it for the changes to the blog for now …

In other news about whats been happening this week … As we had a long weekend last week we only had a 4 day working week … which meant work went by alot quicker … thats always good …

We went round to our friend’s Stef and Bas’s for dinner on Wednesday night … They are moving to their new home in Mirdiff today so we went round for dinner on their last night in their Tecom apartment … and also to pick up Pooh who will be staying with us for the summer from now …

Although they are not going on holiday for a couple weeks we all thought it would be less stressful for Pooh to come straight to us for a solid 6-8 weeks rather than go through moving to a new house for a couple weeks and then moving again to here … she is shy and nervous enough in new situations as it is and it wouldn’t do her any good being moved around more than would be necessary … so we brought her home last night … and she seems to be settling in nicely …

Other than all that my health is still on the fritz … after my last sick day and visit to the Doctors I am still no closer to actually knowing what is wrong with me … all I know is that I dont have a bacterial infection … and its certainly not a cold/flu … and so my symptoms and powers of deduction indicate it must be an allergy of some kind …

I have had a number of people on facebook ask if it could be the kittens … and I did have a moment of panic when I thought the same … but then I started thinking logically about it and I realised I’m usually better when I’m at home over the weekends and I’m most symptomatic when I’m at work … particularly when the AC is on full blast …

So my theory is that I’ve developed a reaction to something thats coming out of our office AC system … so technically I’m allergic to ‘work’ … lol … although this is just my guess based on the fact that when I’m sat at my desk I usually feel like I’m dying of a horrid cold … and when I’m pretty much any where else my symptoms are much less severe or non existent …

Anyway to try and clear the matter up I’ve booked an appointment with an Allergy specialist next week and so hopefully I’ll have some proper answers soon!

Other than the above we’ve had a pretty regular week … nothing too exciting … Perry is doing well with work and the commute is starting to become more routine for the both of us … the boys are also doing well … becoming increasingly adorable and demanding on a daily basis … need to do another video clip of them soon …

This weekend we have a few things happening … Perry and I are going to pop out for some breakfast tomorrow morning … then probably have a day at home, play with the kittens and Pooh and get boring house stuff done … then Saturday we have our Arabic class in the morning and will be hanging out with one of our friends going to check out a few apartments/villas with him … Paul has moved over from the UK recently and is an old friend of Perry’s from a previous job … His wife Sarah is coming over soon to join him and he just wanted some company scouting a few locations before she gets here … so we said we’d keep him company and then probably go for some food in the evening as well …

So hopefully a relatively mellow weekend this week … will have some time to catch up with the blog and do a few more updates/posts …

Sorry for the lack of pictures … will make up for that with the next one 🙂

Till next time …
