A Surprise Visit

On Monday evening, Mummy suggested we go and look at aeroplanes at the airport which was very exciting! We had to wait for a little while in the Arrivals area and I couldn't believe it when I spotted my Nanny and Grandad walking towards us! I was so excited that I ran screeching at Nanny and we landed on the floor in a heap! My Mummy is apparently very good at keeping secrets and tricking me! I had a new fairy (Silvermist and I love her!) and Michael had a funny looking teddy! It was quite late on Monday so we didn't get to spend too much time with my grandparents before it was time to go home to bed.

I had nursery the following day and nanny took me in as Mummy had to go to the doctor. I loved showing Nanny my classroom and was very excited when she came back in the afternoon to pick me up! I was very excited that nanny had bought more presents over for us, I had a beautiful new dress that I can wear to Mummies birthday party next week. Mummy, Michael and I took nanny for lunch and then spent the afternoon in the swimming pool. Michael loves swimming as much as I do. Daddy came over to nanny and grandad's hotel in the evening and we ate dinner together but grandad had to go out for a work dinner so we didn't get to see him.

The following day we spent a few hours in the Dubai Mall dress shopping for Mummy. Never go shopping with my Mummy... We left empty handed after she tried far too many dresses on! I asked if we could spend the afternoon at the swimming pool and then I stayed with my grandparents while Mummy took Michael home to bed. We joined them later and I was so tired that I went straight to bed after dinner.

I went to nursery as normal on Thursday morning and was a little sad that nanny and grandad had flown to Oman for a few days but I'll see them again tomorrow before they leave the Middle East. ur weekend has been quiet. Mummy made us go dress shopping again yesterday but luckily Daddy has much more patience than I do and helped her find one eventually! We had breakfast at Pauls as a treat and Michael enjoys joining in with us now too.

Toda we are having a lazy day and watching films while poor Daddy has to do some work. I'm hoping to Skype my other Nanny and Grandad this afternoon though. I have to tell them that we are visiting very soon- Mummy has already started packing our warm clothes! She put a coat on Michael last week and it made him very upset!

I hope you have a lovely, long bank holiday weekend!

Lots of love

Spring in Dubai

We have been so busy since the end of April that I have not had chance to write to you all! Nursery has been a lot of fun, we are learning lots about recycling, singing new songs, reading new exciting books- my current favourite is The Gingerbread Man, learning languages and of course there is a little playing. Today I showed Mummy how I can introduce myself in Arabic. I think she was very impressed.

Our weekends have been filled with birthday parties, brunches, shopping trips, soft play and afternoons at the swimming pool. It's getting very hot here now even though summer is still a couple of months away! We are looking forward to a little break from the heat when we fly back in just under 3 weeks. I can't wait, I'm really excited that I'll be seeing my grandparents, Aunties, Uncles, Cousins and friends so soon. Michael and I have also been playing together a lot- he is getting much more fun now, I enjoy having him around much more.

Next weekend, Mummy has pre warned us that we have to go shopping for clothes to wear when we are visiting. It seems like you are having another cold spell and my summer dresses won't be much good to me there. My nanny has bought me a coat which I can't wait to wear. Mummy put a coat on Michael today to check it fits him and he cried. I don't think he's going to like wearing lots of clothes in June!

Mummy turns 30 at the beginning of June so Daddy and I have been planning a fun weekend just before we fly back. We have booked to stay at a lovely hotel for the weekend, and we have arranged a little party with lots of our friends for her. Hopefully she will have lots of fun- I'm sure I will anyway!

We also confirmed my school place for next September which I'm both excited and nervous about. I'll miss my nursery and my teacher a lot. I get to go everyday instead of just three mornings a week too. It's quite a long way from where we live at the moment and as I start at 7:30am, we will be leaving the house before 7am! Lots of early nights for us!

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend back home. I'm sad it's over here as it means Daddy has to go back to work and I'll miss him!

Lots of love

A Trip to Oman

I've been really busy over the past couple of weeks and have not had as much time to write home to all of you. We are all well and I am still having lots of fun in the sun! We spent last weekend in Oman, in a beautiful place called Musandam. We went with Jack and Charlie's family and I was very excited to take Michael on his first little trip. It was just over a 3 hour drive but it took longer as I was sick in the car on the way and then Charlie was also sick in his mummies car. By the time we arrived at our hotel, we were all hungry and tired so we had dinner together before getting to bed.

In the morning we saw what a wonderful view we had form our hotel room. I couldn't wait to have breakfast and get out on a dhow for the day. The water was quite choppy that day but we had lots of fun on the boat. We saw amazing views of the surrounding mountains, little villages nestled among them, birds, fish and the most amazing experience I've encountered, dolphins swimming alongside us. It was magical! I was desperate to get into the water and swim with them! We did stop a couple of times so that we could swim in the sea, some people snorkelled too. I was not happy about getting out of the water to have lunch though!

After our trip we went back to our hotel and our mummies took us to play in the children's play area before we had dinner together. We sat outside by the pool in the evening and Charlie, Jack and I spent the time chasing each other and splashing in the pool! Even Michael was still awake and enjoying the night. The following day we had planned to go to DreamLand Water Park but after we crossed the border back into the UAE, we were greeted by dark clouds and heavy rain! Plus at 26 degrees, it was cold! Instead we stopped at a hotel for lunch and spent some time in the play area before heading home.  It was a great weekend and I couldn't wait to tell my teacher all about it when I got into nursery on Sunday!

I overheard Mummy planning our next trip away too this weekend. I'm really looking forward to it! I hope you are all enjoying your long bank holiday weekend!

Lots of love
