Weekly Roundup Time … Katie Melua Concert … The Beach & Other Stuffs …

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetHey everyone … so its been a pretty busy week around here … alot has been going on and that is a good thing really … last weekend was relatively relaxed and it was just nice to spend our last free weekend doing stuff together … that was the last weekend the two of us had alone in Dubai before the new year … as from now on we either have family here or we will be away ourselves …

The food was ok … and the pizza’s were massive …

Mine didn’t even fit on my plate …

The view from the restaurant wasn’t too bad either … I think this will be one of the things I will miss most when we move to Bahrain … we wont be somewhere with the same level of convenience in terms of just being able to walk 5mins down the road and have a whole host of restaurants and cafes to choose from …

Each guest got one of these lanyards personally signed by Katie Melua that night …

As I said it was a very intimate concert with only around 110 seats …

As for the rest of this week I’ve been busy starting a new knitting project … although I think this is going to be a long term project … its quite tricky and takes concentration to work the pattern but I’m hopeful to get it finished …

I’ve also been doing a fair bit of sewing this week too … made myself another dress and a few other little bits … I’ll probably do a post on those soon …

I also had a physio appointment this week for my back which went well and I got a fitness ball which I am trying to use as much as possible when I’m at home as my chair … cause I find I slouch alot when I’m sat on the sofa which is making my back worse …

Other than that I’ve been busy tidying up around the apartment getting ready for Perry’s parents who arrive later tonight …

That is it for this week … thanks for tuning in …

Till next time …
