Christmas Came Early To Dubai …

So yesterday Perry went to collect his parents from the airport … it was great to have them over finally after al the anticipation and looking forward to it … by the time they got home though it was quite late and everyone was pretty tired too … so after chatting and catching up for an hour or so we all headed off to bed … Pat and Patrick were kind enough to pick us up a few bottles of wine and Prosecco from the airport on their way through … we now need to get a wine rack to store it all …

Today we had quite abit to do … I’d booked us in for brunch at Mina A’Salam hotel and we had panned to go down to the beach in the morning to take some family pictures … but before all that we had another surprise waiting for us when we woke up …

Perry got up to go feed the cats in the morning and found a couple of stockings behind our bedroom door … but we refrained from opening them until we heard the others stirring and once everyone was awake we all gathered on the spare bed to open our stockings … at which point we got the rest of our Christmas presents too …

I should probably explain at this point that today is our unofficial Philipp Family Christmas Day … as we are not going back to the UK for Christmas this year and my family are coming here for the holidays … we decided to celebrate Christmas when Perry’s family would all be out here this weekend … which is what we have ended up doing 🙂 …

My Marmite cook books … so excited to try out some of the recipes …

All my Marmite related Paraphernalia (cookbooks, toast rack, egg holder & two 600g tubs) … clearly Perry’s parents think I am Marmite obsessed … which actually is probably not far off … the two massive tubs of marmite are actually from my Mum …

Our combined stash of presents …

I caught Perry tucking into his Terry’s Chocolate Orange before we left for Brunch …

Anyway thats it for now … stay tuned for more posts about the Brunch, beach walks, and other stuff we get up to this weekend …

For now we’re having a lazy afternoon … I think all the food and sunshine at Brunch has knocked it out of us …

Till next time …
