Things I will miss about Dubai

The desert

The palm trees

The camels

Dish-Dash

Silk Abayas

Hoopoes

Bul-Buls

Bougainvillia

Fresh hand-cut pineapple

Lebanese food

Cheap taxis

Over-the-counter antibiotics

Industrial-strength chemicals for everyone!

The weather in winter

Personal safety

Being at the top of the food chain because I’m female

Our swimming pool

Our pool man

Not having to cook  – anything

and saving the best till last…

The Emiratis

Mozzwatch

Mozz is good.

He gets a bit slack with this eating now and then… goes a bit hypo and starts wandering the house mewing  and generally being a complete pain in the ass.

Well, technically he doesn’t mew – he whaaa’s. Have you ever heard those cartoons called Simon’s Cat? He sounds almost EXACTLY the same as the cat in those cartoons. (I suspect that ‘Simon’s Cat’ might be a Burmese.)

But other than being a pain in the ass (nothing new there – he’s been a pain the ass for 13 years) Mozz is fantastic.  Still the uber-negotiator, able to charm at 30 paces and a purr that can shake walls.

I took a photo through the car windscreen today, on the way to Dubai Mall.

This photo of Sheik Zayed Road going towards Old Dubai is the blog banner for this month (or until I am inspired by something else.)

Sheik Zayed Road, towards Dubai.

Photos of the Kids

Just downloaded a bunch of photos that were taken in the last three weeks.

Here is my favourite.

Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Here are some other good ones…

Kelli is hilarious.  She can watch birds on the TV or laptop for hours!

Mozz likes to sit on my head.  My neck does not like this.  But I find him irresistable!

We have Geckos on our balcony at night in Dubai. I love these little guys!

Is it just me, or are baby animals really being dicks recently?
