Thursday’s Weekly Roundup On A Friday …

Well its just been one of those weeks … Time totally got away from me this week … so much with work and then some … anyway as you could probably tell I couldn’t stop long enough to write this post yesterday … so my usual weekly roundup is being post on Friday this week …

Last weekend Perry and I escaped from Dubai for a couple days to Abu Dhabi to use one of the weekends away that Perry had one on the Radio a couple weeks back … we stayed at the Hilton in Abu Dhabi … it was a comfortable stay and it was a much needed break away from the usual stuff … especially as I’d been working most of the weekends for the last 3-4 weeks …

As we were packing our bags in the morning I ended up pulling together all the ends of different suncreams we had lying around the apartment … clearly some of our guests just decided to leave their’s behind when leaving …

photo 1We stopped by Emirates Palace on our way to the Hotel … we were a bit early for check in so thought we’d stop at the Palace for some Lunch … We ended off the lunch with a cappuccino dusted with flakes of gold …

photo 3I’ll update more with a proper post on our trip later once I get round to finishing the edits on the pictures … again no time to work on them this week …

This last week has been pretty crazy busy with work … for both Perry and me … it wasn’t particularly interesting either … Last night we went round our friend’s Sarah’s place to catch up and to meet her new little puppy … he is incredibly cute too … very excitable and he took a liking to my shoe laces …

This morning Perry and I headed to Dubai Mall for some breakfast … I ended up having a yummy waffle covered in chocolate and bananas … it was amazingly good …

photo 4After we ate and picked up a couple bits we needed we headed home and stopped by to pick up our new foster cat … she is a tortie coloured female long haired cat … the vets believe she was a pet as she was found with a collar and has scars from when she was spayed … but not much is known about her … so we will be looking after her for a while … she seems pretty calm and has a rather friendly temperament … I’ll be sharing pictures of her soon …

Other than that our weekend is going to be relatively uneventful … not planning on doing much else for today … need to catch up on drafting some blog posts … editing pictures and taking care of stuff around the apartment that have been left for way too long …

Tomorrow I have to go into work … and then Perry and I are catching up with a friend we haven’t seen in ages for dinner … then it’ll be back to work all over again … the week’s are literally flying by these days …

Hope you are all having a great weekend …

Till next time …
