Scrumptious cupcakes, I ate my berry flavoured one whilst wandering around the Dubai Mall and enjoying the aquarium.
Dubai Polo Club
I took Davey and Dad on a 2 hr desert trek from the polo club, we had a lovely time but couldn't walk properly for a few days. The setting is lovely though especially for the polo and an Argentinean asado in the evening.
Covent Garden Market
I haven't been here yet but it sounds great, they have arty stands at JBR and street entertainers just like being back in the real Covent Garden.
Not much else to report currently, just continuing to work, study and enjoy my life in the Middle East and live for the moment........

So I found this place thanks to Andre, he has been really wonderful helping to get it furnished and finished. He even found me an excellent cleaner because unfortunately I have become a spoilt princess living in the shangri la for almost a year and have forgotten how hard it it to do all the cleaning and have a job!

I will not post any photos yet because I want to get everything finished and then post the final shots. The first set of furniture is being delivered later from my new favourite UAE furniture shop The One - what an amazing store, set up by an ex Ikea employee and its so much more fabulous and chic. I have furnished most of apartment from IKEA who also have an excellent range and pieced it all together with some extra pieces from The One, Marina and Carrefour for my white goods and a 42 inch TV - I can see some serious party nights taking place there!!! For one there is an arch shaped area as you come in which is screaming out "Create a bar area here" . That will be the next little project once moved in and settled and bank balance has recovered from the first month of expenses.
I should be able to move in next Tue evening as that is when the bed will arrive and I have my lovely Dorma bedding to jump onto. My birthday is next Weds and so I will be hosting my house warming/bday drinks next Thurs evening with a group of friends coming over for fun fun fun before heading to the infamous Etoiles a luxe club in Emirates Palave which I have been trying to get to for weeks now.
Anyway, updates will follow shortly.

The scenery was stunning and it was so much cooler up in the mountains, we camped on top of a plateau overlooking the valley, at night the stars were shining brightly and we had the campsite all to ourselves which was great when we had our music blaring, drinking alcohol and showing our legs in shorts - the latter two are banned!
