A bit late posting this.. But.. I’m sat here on a Friday morning (the first day of the weekend in Arab lands). My two girls are on the sofa next to me watching the intertubes. All of a sudden, we’ve got a teenager in the house! Eirene set off early this morning to Ras al Khaimah. She’s in a Dragon… Read more →
I’ve just read a Dr. Seuss story to my 5 year old. Tomorrow morning, she’ll be 6. I’ve read so my Dr. Seuss stories to my kids over the last 20 years, I probably know them all off by heart. It’s the last time I’ll read a good night story to a 5 year old daughter or son of mine…. Read more →
Felix, our first boy spent his birthday with us yesterday. We had a tip top day, but the best thing about it was (nearly – with the exception of Jaygo who’s in the UK) that we all spent it together. In the morning, we went to The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, in the afternoon and evening we went on… Read more →
We’ve just come back from a camping adventure to celebrate Sophie’s 12th birthday. She’s had a great time – we all have. We stayed at Bin Majid Beach Hotel’s beach campsite. ‘Glamping’ is the term – the 6 person tent was set up for us complete with beds and all the nick-nacks needed to make for a very pleasant stay….

The littlest of the little people in or house is 4. So that’s 4 years to the day since I delivered her in our hallway and hit the local headlines as a result. A wonderful 4 years. She’s such a precious wee thing. Here she is with her big sis, playing with some of her new prezzies. Beyala toys are… Read more →
The above is a picture of Felix on the morning of his 18th. That’s this morning. I know! Who’d have thunk I’d have created such an amazing creature (with a bit of help from Eirene obvs.). We’re so proud of him. When he was a baby someone said “The years will fly by now you’ve got a child. Before you… Read more →
Happy Paddy’s day to all our Irish or Ireland dwelling friends and relatives! It’s three years since I delivered this beautiful bundle of joy. We’ve had a lovely day of celebration. I cracked on super early working from home and broke the back of what I needed to do in time to go to her nursery around mid day. It’s… Read more →

My birthday celebrations started Friday evening with a ‘pink pants party’. A novel Sophie and I had been reading together explained how pink pants ward off any Friday the 13th nastiness. Sophie and I liked this idea and I decided to incorporate it as my party theme. Another idea I liked was to ask if my guests would like to… Read more →

Felix and his friends celebrated Felix’s birthday by going laser shooting. Here is a picture of them ploughing through sausage sandwiches, cake and cans of fizzy pop after working up an appetite changing around a forest for four hours. They all really enjoyed themselves and I think they will sleep well tonight.
Happy birthday Felix. You are an amazing person. Thank you for choosing us to be your family. It’s wonderful to watch you turning from a boy child into a young man. I wish you a brilliant year full of fun, smiles, friends, yummy food, wonderful experiences and excellent WiFi at all times.
It has been a busy few days. On Tuesday, the school Sophie attends, received notification that, at long last, Ofsted were going to pay them a visit. For two years the school has been expecting a visit, so it almost felt like a relief that they were actually coming. Wednesday, Dad and Dennis arrived. It was great to see them… Read more →
