It is truly heaven... well apart from the Atlantis, we hated that.

Have a brilliant time and Happy Anniversary. xxxxxx
Thank you. We are having a peek in the Burj al Arab. So many people say such good things about Dubai. I cant believe its taken us so long !

I'm really interested to hear about your trip. I had my finger poised on the button to book with Emirates for February next year but at the last minute we changed our mind and booked Hong Kong instead!

Dubai is therefore still on the list! Looking forward to reading more x
Ah, thank you. I shall report in full
Hong Kong is on our list ...

Ive had confirmation back for our booking at Burj Al Arab. Hurrah.

I had wanted to do the cocktails at Gold on 24 but then I read that its a place that allows smoking so we binned it. Andys been an ex smoker the best part of 10 years now so its just not something that would be enjoyable for us.

Instead weve gone for their sunset drinks, DJ and tapas type package at the Scape Lounge. Which means we will also still be able to get back to our hotel for late dinner and the all important cocktails.

Still waiting for Viator to confirm our Burj Khalifa tix slot which is a bit annoying as the availability is getting limited. I only booked with them for a discount. I wish Id booked direct on the site now.

Now reviewing the in flight film options . Ever the planner ...

It sounds like a dismal summer with life dishing out the dirt for you. I hope you are able to enjoy your adults only getaway.

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!

How exciting Your plans all sound fab! Fingers crossed that you get the confirmation for the Burj Khalifa asap.

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.

4 cases for 5 days? I assume Andy is only taking hand luggage? 😂😂😂 Sounds absolutely fabulous! Make sure your luggage scale goes in a suitcase not like silly me in hand luggage - they cut the measuring bit out and offered us the empty shell!

After the year youve had, you deserve a bit of spoiling Amanda! Hope you both enjoy every single moment and all the dramas are at an end now. X

Sounds like an amazing trip Amanda.
I would love to go, but I am slightly apprehensive for various reasons.
I hope that your year improves soon.
More dresses...
