Weekly Roundup … Quick Trip To Dubai …

IMG_4489Hey everyone … so time for another weekly roundup … its been pretty busy around here but thats ok … I like busy … Last weekend was really busy but productive … atleast it was for me … I got a call late on Thursday from my Boss in the US telling me he needed me to go to Dubai this week to deal with some work matters …

IMG_4525So this meant I had to re-think my plans for the week and so all the things I had planned on doing over the course of 5-6 days now had to be done on the weekend … so like I said … it was busy … Perry was in Dubai actually for a work meeting on Thursday and he stayed the night and got home Friday afternoon … so it wasn’t too bad as it meant I had most of Friday to crack on with my to-do list …

IMG_4532 I added a fair few squares to my blanket …


I finished another pair of socks … these are quite special as they are my own design …


When Perry got home Friday we spent the evening watching TV and I knit on my Viajante shawl …


I set up to film my podcast a day early so it would be ready to publish while I was in Dubai!


A lovely viewer sent me the most wonderful parcel of goodies … and amongst all the lovely stuff was this collection of stitch markers …


I spent some time making up some mini skeins for swaps!


I finally got to Dubai on Sunday evening and Monday Morning I enjoyed breakfast with a very familiar view … I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dubai Marina which is pretty much the next building over from our old apartment block …

I went for a lovely walk down along the beach one morning quite early … it was still really hot!!!

IMG_4576Published my latest PODCAST episode on Monday …


Started another pair of fun rainbow socks …


Finally finished off my Viajante shawl!!!


Finished one of my work meetings early so popped down to the fabric market in Satwa to get some fun prints …


Met up with some of the lovely Dubai Knitting ladies for dinner and some knitting on Tuesday evening which was so lovely …


Then finally yesterday I came home … it felt like such a long day and it was so hot and sticky when I got back to Bahrain it was quite ridiculous …

I’m looking forward to a weekend of catching up with stuff and getting ready for our next trip … New York at the end of next week!!!

So excited!!!

Till next time …
