My Mum In Dubai … First Couple Days … Missing Luggage & A Surprise Visitor …

Hello everyone … been pretty busy round here for the last couple days … My mum landed on Friday morning so we headed to the airport to pick her up … which ended up taking longer than anticipated cause one of her bags got left behind in Bahrain where she had to change planes … her bag just never made the connection … anyway so we eventually went home with a reference number and were told it should arrive in a day or so …

Once back at the flat my mum had a shower and we stayed in for abit for some food … my mum quickly fell asleep on the sofa as she was rather knackered after all the traveling … so later in the afternoon we popped out for a walk around the Marina … literally walked all the way round it … and ended up down the other end at the Marina Walk and went to the Observatory for a couple of Cocktails and watch the sun set …

I slept quite badly last night and kept waking up alot … I remember waking up around 3-4am hearing abit of a racket in the flat … I just assumed it was my mum bumbling around the kitchen or something and went back to sleep … but Perry had woken up and went to see what it was … before coming back to sleep … I woke up in the morning and went into my Mum’s room to see this …

Turns out my brother had arrived in the middle of the night … my family dont understand the concept of whispering … so much so that they managed to wake up Perry who had slept with ear plugs last night … Ironically my brother had wanted to surprise us yet Perry managed to give both him and my mum a heart attack when he crept up on them …
