Thursday’s Weekly Round Up and Weekend Happenings …

Another working week over … another update on what has been going on in our lives this week and what is coming up this weekend … its been one of those weeks … nothing particularly special and not as productive as I would have liked … but we have quite a lot planned this weekend and so I’m hoping to be able to crack on with a bunch of things I’ve been planning to do …

Last week Saturday Perry met up with our friend Paul to go house hunting with him which was somewhat eye opening for both of them … but was worth the time thankfully … the three of us later went out for dinner to the Grand Grill at the Habtoor Grand Hotel in the Marina … had some yummy steak and sweet potato fries … YUM!

The week started out abit disapointing … I was feeling better which was good but I had organised an appointment with an allergy specialist on Monday evening but got a call on Sunday to cancel and rearrange for next week … abit annoying really but things happen I guess …

Most of you probably know I’ve been suffering from cold like symptoms for the last 2 months now … and a couple weeks ago I was feeling particularly rough, took the day off and went to see the doctor … anyway suspicion was that it was an allergy with it being my first summer in Dubai and all … but as antihistamines were not having much of an effect I decided to see a specialist …

I have a theory that its something in the Air Conditioning filters that is making me ill (mould or something similar most likely) … and its particularly bad at work … I go through a weekly cycle … I start out ok at the beginning of the week with minor symptoms, start feeling more rough midweek with symptoms worsening … and by the end of the week I feel like I’m about to die I feel so rough (usually have a paper basket overflowing with used tissues by this point) … and generally dont feel up to much Thursday evenings when I get home … I tend to get better over the weekend with symptoms clearing up quite quickly while I’m home … and then it starts all over again the next week … The sniffles start whenever I’m in AC environment and its generally quite minor … but I notice a significant deterioration in my health during the week while at work … I’m hoping when I finally get to see the Doctor I’ll be able to get some answers or atleast an indication as to what is causing this …

Alot of this week has been spent sorting out some of the plans for our summer garden party in August … I spent some time on Skype with my parents discussing ideas and plans etc … I’m really looking forward to it and hopefully everything should come together nicely … Perry and I have also spent some time planning everything that we need to do before heading back to London as well as compiling a list of things we need to do when were back … just so we dont forget anything important later …

Got home the other day and while sat in the living room – head buried in my computer – I was oblivious to the fact it was getting dark outside … when suddenly everything got brighter quite suddenly … the sun was setting and for a few minutes there was this really intense orange glow in the flat … loved it!

The kittens and Pooh are all doing well … Pooh seems to be tolerating the kittens more recently and even joined us on the couch last night for some cuddles while we were watching TV … although the boys do still get too curious sometimes and get too close … at which point she normally hisses at them till they get the message and scuttle off …

I saw a picture online today which got me to thinking … and after sharing it with Perry he encouraged me to go ahead and do my own one … so I’ve started to plan my next epic crafting/DIY plan … now it may all fail and not work out … but Perry and I will be doing some reconnaissance this weekend at the local DIY/Hardware stores to see how practical/affordable my latest crazy idea is going to be … and if everything stacks up hopefully we will be able to get cracking with it soon … (sorry for being vague but I want to keep it a surprise for when its finished – which may be a while) …

As for our weekend plans … well were meeting up with our friends Cat & Gav Friday morning for some breakfast down at the Yacht club … then we need to go get Perry measured up for a suit … and in the evening on Friday were going to head up to Festival City where they are having a Gaming convention which Perry wants to go to and then we’ll be moving onto the Astoria Hotel in Bur Dubai for an Album Launch … one of my co-workers is in a local band (Riff Raff – you can find them on Facebook) and they are launching their debut album tomorrow night so we thought we’d go down to support them …

Saturday starts the same as every other week recently … Arabic class in the morning followed by running some errands and getting ourselves ready for the week ahead … have a little photo thing planned for Saturday … and hopefully if it happens I’ll be able to share it with you all next week … 🙂

Do any of you have any interesting plans this weekend? Feel free to comment … we love hearing from you and thanks for reading …

Wishing you all the best weekend …

Till next time …
