This time last year we jetted off to Abu Dhabi to spend some nice time in the sun and to see my oldest bestie and her lovely family. It was lovely to lounge about on the beach with the boys, eat amazing food, and take the kiddies to some very colourful and fun attractions. It was also curiously interesting to see Halloween celebrated in a massive way in the UAE. Much more so than England ever does. I think we give it a polite nod in comparison.
This year we’re not going anywhere, partly because of work being so crazy, and partly because I wasn’t organised enough to book anything. Lucky for us the weather has been lovely so far and we’ll be spending the week doing more of the same, juggling around pesky work and deadlines. We have dreaded potty training to conquer and so far my lame tactic has been to remind him to tell me when he needs the loo. Suffice to say it’s not working and we need to just bite the bullet. Ahh deep joy but once it’s done it’s done, right?
