Thursday’s Weekly Roundup … Heading Home For Christmas …

Hey everyone … welcome to another weekly roundup coming to you from Dubai Airport today … exciting times … we’re all checked in … have had some food and done our Duty Free shopping … and are now relaxing in the lounge before we leave in a short while … really looking forward to going home and seeing everyone again over Christmas …

Anyway as for what we got up this last week … Thursday night I babysat our friends twin girls … Perry ended up having to work late so I was on my own for the evening … thankfully the girls were fine and just slept the whole evening … so really I just spent the evening watching TV and eating Pizza …

The weekend flew by and Perry and I took part in the COLOUR RUN … it was so much fun and we really enjoyed it too …

We were at one of the malls over the weekend and its nice to see everywhere getting into the Christmas spirit … we’ve not really been out much in the last couple weeks so haven’t had the chance to take in all the Christmassy stuff going on around Dubai this year … although it doesn’t quite feel like Christmas really when its still hot enough outside not to need a jacket …

Leaving the apartment this morning was really difficult … the cats new we were leaving and they were both just following us around the place crying … being all cute and adorable … both of us felt really guilty … its the worst part about going away anywhere for more than a couple days … but I’m really grateful knowing there will be someone looking after them while were gone … and we will get to see them … even if it is briefly … in a week’s time before the next leg of our trip …

At the airport now and were all checked in … have had some food and have done our Duty Free shopping with very little fuss … just in the lounge relaxing and making the most of the wifi access while we wait for our flight to board …

That is it for now … see you on the other side …

Till next time …
