Weekly Roundup … Getting Stuff Done & Heading Off On Holiday …

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetHey everyone … so its been a very productive week and relaxing at the same time which has been great … although having said that I did do my fair share of running around a couple days this week too … so I guess you could say it was a mixture …

Last weekend was the last couple days Perry’s sister and boyfriend were over … Perry had to stay in Saudi Arabia to sort out some visa stuff … but it was a nice relaxed weekend … we went out to Dubai Mall for dinner one evening and just hung out at home really …

I finished off a few knitting projects this week that I was glad to see get done … a couple I can’t show you as they are gifts but I can show this one …

I’ve been working on this solidly for three weeks and I’m so happy it’s finally done .. its a lovely lace cardigan with dolman sleeves and I do love how its turned out … however those will not be the final buttons the colour is not right but I didn’t have time to go hunting buttons in Satwa this week … so I added these temporarily until were back … also its a really dark forest green colour but for some reason the camera registered it as a much lighter shade … I’ll do proper photos and a post about it once I’ve finished it properly …

So just to clear things up a bit if that last section was a little confusing … Perry and I have a one night stop over in London on our way back from Iceland … but my Parents and brother are actually going to Iran for 10 days before coming to Dubai for Christmas so they won’t be there when we are … so Perry and I are going to stay with my Auntie and Uncle in Kingston for the night … it’ll be lovely to see my Auntie again and to see my Uncle who I haven’t seen since last Christmas …

Basically I told my Mum not to worry about lugging everything for Christmas to Iran first and then bring it to Dubai that we could bring it all back from London if she leaves it with my Auntie Lida … so thats the plan …

Another thing I organised this week was to get some moving companies to come  round to give us a quote for moving our furniture and stuff to Bahrain … I also spoke to a specialist company about moving the boys too … lets just say moving Hugo & Derek is almost as expensive as shipping all our furniture and Car to Bahrain … but they are our fluffy babies and frankly there is no doubt about it … they will be coming with us …

Although the thought of not being with them on the flight over or while they have to go through customs etc just makes me really anxious … I mean I know how nervous they are in new situations so this just stresses me out a lot … thankfully its only a 1 hour flight … I don’t know how I would handle it if we ever had to send them back to the UK or somewhere much further away than that …

Finally I have got us both all packed up for our trip … lets just say there is a lot of warm clothes in the suitcases … my pile includes a lot of knitting too … Our flight is one of those middle of the night flights which isn’t too bad … gives Perry a chance to get home after he lands back from Saudi Arabia and rest for a bit before we head out again …

I am so excited about this trip … its one of those ones we planned and organised months ago and then because we had all the visitors in October and November I didn’t have much time to really think about it too much … so suddenly at the start of this week it all became really real that it was happening this week … eek!

Anyway that is it for this week …

Till next time …
