Thursday’s Weekly Roundup … Clouds … Steaks … & Friends …

Good afternoon everyone … hope you are all having a lovely week … things have been busy but productive around here … the weather is starting to cool off nicely … still warm but the humidity is dropping greatly … and clouds have started to appear in the skies … I love Dubai in the winter months cause of the cooler weather but also because of the clouds 🙂

20131023-225922.jpgLast Thursday after Paul and I got back from BASTAKIYA … we met Perry at one of our favourite Steakhouse’s in Dubai … Ruth’s Chris at the Address Hotel Dubai Marina … we don’t go there too often but it is by far the best steak we’ve had …

20131023-225819.jpgPaul ended up going for a 16oz monster steak … I still don’t know how he managed to eat all of that on top of a portion of chips, and 4 bread rolls …

Our waiter was really lovely and we had a great time … at the end of the meal they even brought us some After Eight’s and a Red Rose for me … which is currently sat in a vase in our kitchen … still alive after a week which I’m quite impressed with …

20131023-225838.jpgOn Friday we went to the WILD WADI WATERPARK … that was so much fun too …

DCIM103GOPROSaturday was the last full day we would get to spend with Paul … even though he was still here all day Sunday Perry and I were at work so we only got to see him for dinner that evening before dropping him off at the Airport … so we ended up taking him to see the Atlantis on Saturday … had some lunch at Nassimi Beach and explored the Lost Chambers … (I’ll be posting more about that tomorrow) …

_MG_0063-1The rest of the week has been busy with work … with there being mostly no work happening last week because of Eid there was alot of stuff to catch up on … thankfully it was also a very productive week for both Perry and I work wise … although Perry has been getting home quite late a couple times … last night I was up till 1am waiting for him to get home … one reason I didn’t go to sleep was I wasn’t sure if he needed a lift … Since our Golf is currently in the workshop (should be getting it back at the weekend) … we’ve been sharing Perry’s hire car …

There was a really bad car accident on the bridge by our home over the weekend too … a bus had crashed into the back of a Porsche Cayenne which had then hit the Land Cruiser in front of it … traffic was backed up for ages … we just watched from the bedroom window for a bit …

20131023-225911.jpgAll in all its been a great week … looking forward to some down time now until the beginning of November when my friend Harri will be out here visiting us for a few days … I can’t wait …

Also this weekend we will be going round to see Stef, Bas and their twin girls as its their 1st Birthday … I can’t believe its been a year already … and they’ve grown so much …

Anyway that is it for this week …

Till next time …
