Monday Links For The Week … & Weekends With Friends …

Hey everyone … hopefully everyone has had as a good a weekend as we did over here … although saying that I was quite jealous of all the snow everyone’s been enjoying back in the UK these last few days … its about the only thing I miss being out here … snow … even so its not like we got it very often even when we were in the UK … we had a lovely sunny weekend over here … clear skies and not a cloud in sight … although it was quite chilly for Dubai …

This weekend we met up with Perry’s past work colleague Brian for breakfast on Friday … he’s been out in Dubai about as long as we have … but in a couple weeks he’s moving back to the UK to retire … it will be sad to see him go … and we always got along well together … anyways we decided to try out the IHop restaurant along the beach … its not particularly the best breakfast I’d ever had but the pancakes are pretty good!

Saturday morning we met up with other friends of ours Cat, Gav and their little boy Charlie … who is going to 1years old in a couple weeks … I remember when he was first born and was tiny little thing … now he’s standing and walking and almost talking … time flies … anyway we had a great time over breakfast chatting … we hadn’t really seen them much recently so it was good to catch up …

That afternoon we headed round to my friend Ian’s villa in the Springs for a BBQ … there were about 7 of us in total but it was a great afternoon with lots of stories … laughs (mainly at Sarah’s constantly changing accent) … and plenty of Red Wine to go along with the massive amounts of food …

photo 2So basically our weekend was spent stuffing our faces with lots of yummy food … anyways … moving on you all by now know how this works … below is a random collection of stuff from the internet that I have been looking at/reading/watching/procastinating about over the last week … enjoy …

  1. GO FIND MOMO … Where’s Wally style photos a man has taken of his pet dog … so adorable and such a patient dog too! Can you find Momo in all the pictures?
  2. DOG WOOL CLOTHES … some owners love their pets so much they decided to make clothing out of their dog’s fur! I have sometimes joked that Hugo and Derek give off enough of the fluffy stuff that we could stuff a pillow … but this takes it to another level!
  3. 20 OF THE MOST RIDICULOUS JOB TITLES IN HISTORY … some are incredibly hilarious to read … I do wonder if a couple of them are madeup though …
  4. BEST TOAST TOPPINGS … some interesting ideas to try sometime …
  5. VALENTINES DATE HAIR IDEA … a cute idea to try …
  6. KICKASS PINT SIZED SUPERHEROS AND VILLANS … just cute!
  7. DEALING WITH ONLINE MISCOMMUNICATION … I had some issues regarding this early on last year … so can totally appreciate what the author was saying in this post … its hard dealing with people judging you when they don’t know the whole story … its made me more aware of how I write online …
  8. CREATIVE STREET ARTWORKS … just something fun …
  9. GOING FOR A 7 YEAR WALK … interesting idea to follow in the footsteps of the first humans … I’m looking forward to following this journey and seeing how it goes …
  10. FREEZER FRIDAY … a guy discovered his fride door worked like a whiteboard … and the rest as they say is history … check out some of his incredible fridge art … all done in less than 30mins!
  11. NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CELEBRATES 125TH ANNIVERSARY … stunning!
  12. TIME LAPSE DANCERS … Incredible effects really shows a different side of dance!
  13. CAT HEAVEN ISLAND … I still can’t get over the fact that I went to Japan and didn’t even know this place existed … have to go back even if only to go visit this island!
  14. A LESSON IN JUICING … we don’t have a juicer but after reading this I want to juice everything!

Ok well thats it for this week … hope you enjoy the above and if you have anything interesting to share please let me know in the comments … šŸ™‚

Till next time …
