We love Dubai and have lost count the number of times we have been over the last 12 years.
Really looking forward to your trip report.

We might be joining you honey. I had originally tried to get quote for our fav hotel but it was coming out at nearly 7k.

However just been on expedia and got another amazing price for just under 3.5k... premium and club at the Al Qasr.

I will wave to you. xxxxx

Loving the trip!

I've been a few times but always for work and that just isn't quite the same (although it did mean I could sneak beer on expenses).

I am assuming all your non-planned time is really just code for "Going shopping at the mall"?

I am in approval of the no plan/morning outings plan. Who needs to go anywhere when you've got afternoon tea, followed by cocktails, followed by canapes?

I'm loving the look of all your outfits. I hope you get the chance to wear them all...don't let that interfere with the eating of canapes and drinking of cocktails though.

I'm looking forward to reading all about this next adventure in the eastern direction and not the westerly direction. Who knows maybe a new love will be kindled?

I bet you come home all relaxed and pampered ready to tackle what is thrown at you next.I'm confident the cocktails will help prepare your liver for the inevitable excesses of Christmas and who cares if you've spent all the present money on a holiday for yourselves...ok so the teens (can I still call them that? Perhaps that description is inadequate now?) might have a grumble, but then they always find something to grumble about.

Have a blast it sounds like you need it!

X

Haha I dont think the boys were at all impressed we booked to go away without them that might be why they both just made an appearance at home for their half term ... or maybe that was more for the laundry\food re stock

Summer is always a bit rough for us but it extended itself which was rather rude really. I may hibernate next year.

I am looking forward to doing the full Joan Collins sashaying around in my flowing gowns and oversized hat with a glass of something in my hand. And showing my age.

Thanks for the comments xx

I miss our group chats too I just can't get into the new social group the same as our original one. Hope the boys are well even if they are giving you a headache

Wishing Andy & yourself a fantastic well deserved break Looking forward to the report.

Kelly x
Ah hope all is good with you all x

Lol, hello there How are you.
He does have more shoes than me though so it could be a tricky one ...
good tip on the scales

I would love to go, but I am slightly apprehensive for various reasons.
I hope that your year improves soon.
