Weekly Roundup Time … Early Christmas … Mince Pies & Family …

_MG_6346-1Hello again … I guess its Thursday now so time for another weekly roundup … I swear this week has just flown by … but its also been a lot of fun … Last Thursday was slightly crazy … we had Perry’s Parents back from Oman in the morning then his Sister and her Boyfriend that evening and Perry got home himself Friday morning around 8am … so I went from being on my own to a full house in less than 24 hours …

_MG_6350-1I’d actually stayed up late on the Wednesday night baking … ended up making some mince pies and shortbread biscuits …

_MG_6353-1Then we had early Christmas on the Friday and headed over to the ATLANTIS SAFFRON BRUNCH

_MG_6361-1 _MG_6376-1 _MG_6387-1 _MG_6475-1Later that evening we opened up the presents that had accumulated under out tree …

It was really nice to all open presents together … and honestly I kept forgetting it wasn’t actually Christmas Day yet …

The next day Perry was really not feeling well so he spent the day in bed … I took his family out for some BREAKFAST down by The Beach …

Followed by the last bit of their Christmas Present which was a Boat trip around the Marina and out by the Palm … but more about that in tomorrow’s post …

_MG_6627-1 _MG_6632-1 _MG_6688-1 _MG_6734-1 _MG_6812-1 _MG_6840-1Perry didn’t actually go to work for most of the week as he was really poorly and spent most of the week resting up … he ended up flying back yesterday afternoon as he has some visa stuff he needs to sort out that he can only do in Saudi Arabia … and basically if he doesn’t get it started this week it could cause us trouble later …

I popped into the Marina Office for work the other day to get a few things and spotted these massive UAE flags from the window … the nearest one is on the Habtoor Grand Hotel … and the one further away is actually even bigger … that crane is literally ginormous … what looks like a little crane next to it is a more normal sized one …

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetThen finally this morning we all went down to Baker and Spice for a spot of breakfast before I took Perry’s parents back to the Airport for their flight home … I still have Vicky and Chris who are now staying with me over the weekend …

That is it for this week …

Till next time …

  1. We have had such a lovely time visiting Mina and Perry and our trip to Oman for a few days. It as great meeting up for an early Christmas with Vicky and Chris able to join us on the other side of the world. As always Mina was a great hostess so once again thank you and I would recommend Mina Tours to any of the family.
