Week Two

I can't believe I have been here for a week!! The time is going so quickly, the time to go home will come too soon!!
I have been to a different shopping centre every day and haven't been to the biggest one yet. It's the biggest shopping centre in the world. They also have the tallest building in the world.
Went to the aquarium at Atlantis today and had a lovely lunch in a French restaurant there when we finished. I took quite a few photos at the aquarium.
Went to a scrap shop but they don't have anything I don't have (shame) and a lot of their stock is pretty old. The shop is so beautiful and clean and tidy. Someone going around with a mop all the time! They can certainly come and live at my house!!! Lol!!
Saturday we are going to another place that has a market and we'll have dinner somewhere. Sunday we are going to the gold and spice souks.
It is raining here at the's their rainy season but, doesn't rain anything like we are used to. The temp is perfect for me but the locals have jumpers and coats on?????? I think it got to 23 today.
There are heaps of expensive cars here! All racing around like lunatics, lol!!
Nobody gets out of bed early so it's great to go to the shops at 10am when they open because there's no-one there. James starts school at 8am and finishes at 2.30. I still can't get used to the fact he goes to school on a Sunday.
Off to watch a movie now.

I have arrived...... the "sandpit" as it's affectionately known and commonly known as Dubai!!! Had a really good flight over and managed to get quite a bit of sleep. First time I have flown economy for a long time and I tell you i didn't enjoy it one bit!! Lol!! Food was pretty disgusting and the flight was chockers!!
Is great to see the family and they have a fab apartment with an even better view. Right across the water.
Traffic is a nightmare and they all drive like maniacs!!
Have been to the shops already! will be buying shoes and bags I think!!!! Everything is quite over the top and all groceries are in huge sizes.
Would love to live here!!!

Look at this....

....little one, taking shelter from the rain a couple of nights ago.
He was clinging to the outside of the kitchen window. I know they're a pest but I think they're too cute!!

Color Room #39

I only just managed to get these done today...didn't think I'd make it as other things seemed to be getting in the way but went out cropping taday and got them done. Was a great day for scrapping as it's raining again in Brisbane and by the looks of it we will have plenty more scrap days throughout the summer!!

Unfortunately when I did the stamping on the card it smudged. Oh well, that's what happens when one is in a hurry!!!
