Thursday’s Weekly Roundup … Family Visits … Sunsets & Sandance …

Well we have had a lovely week with Perry’s Uncle and his family visiting us … and it’s been great to spend time with them and see the girls … We spent Friday morning at home celebrating CHLOE’S 3RD BIRTHDAY … and later that morning we headed over to the Westin for their FRIDAY BRUNCH … it proved to be a brilliant introduction to Dubai for them …

_MG_9564-1We had a relaxed Saturday morning and headed over to the Cheesecake factory at the Mall of the Emirates for a late lunch … and on the way back home we stopped by one of my favourite beaches in Dubai … unfortunately I didn’t bring my camera along that day and so I have no photos to share …

Sunday meant Perry and I were back to work for the week … I met up with Steve and the rest of the family at Dubai Mall after work … they had spent the day there and been up the Burj Khalifa to watch the sunset …

Sophie and Chloe were both being pretty playful that evening at the mall …

The rest of the week was pretty quiet generally … Steve, Rose and the girls would go out for the day and by the time I got home from work I’d get to spend 30-45mins with the girls before they went to bed … Perry unfortunately because of work usually finished late and didn’t get to see the girls much in the evenings …

Perry’s family have gone to spend their last few nights at the Jumeriah Zabeel Saray on the Palm … so we’ve made plans to catch up with them for Lunch tomorrow at their hotel … then Perry and I have tickets to Sandance featuring The Killers and Of Monsters and Men … we bought the tickets months ago so we’re both really looking forward to going … last time we were at Sandance was A YEAR AGO

The weather has been gradually getting better as the month goes on … still quite humid during the day and late afternoon … but much more bearable than it was even a month ago … temperatures are actually dropping below 30 degrees centigrade most evenings now …

But I’m loving the clear blue skies … the summer haze is starting to lift and the air is feeling cleaner …  (the water droplets on the sunroof are from cleaning the windscreen) …

20131010-100602.jpgThat is it really … not much to report … I am going to try to go visit Stef over the weekend to help her with planning her girls first birthday party (I cannot believe they are almost a year old … CRAZY) … and get a few things sorted in time for our next visitor arriving on Monday!

Till next time …
