4 Day Weekend

I wish every weekend would last 4 days! It was so much fun having Daddy at home (and not on his laptop!) for so long. We had a lazy start on Thursday morning and spent lots of time in our pyjamas playing with Daddy. I showed him how Mummy and I are practicing my reading too. In the afternoon we went to Ibn Batutta Mall as Daddy needed more things for golf and Michael is already growing out of his clothes! Mummy and I have also started Christmas shopping and added a few things to the pile while we were out!

On Friday we went out early and decided to head to Mirdif and spend an hour at Little Explorers. It was lots of fun but I found it slightly overwhelming as there was so much to do. We had to leave when a dancing competition started as the music was so loud it made my brother scream! I didn't mind too much though as we were going to Carluccio's for lunch.

Michael and I spent all of Saturday morning with Daddy and left Mummy in peace to do whatever Mummies get up to when they are child free. We had lots of fun reading, playing and even watched a film together before we both fell asleep! In the afternoon we went for a short walk (it's still very hot here) and I took my bike out to show Daddy how I can ride by myself- well that was the idea but I got too hot so I made him push me...

Sunday, Daddy dragged us around the Dubai Mall as he needed more things for golf (he is really getting into this). It got boring very quickly so Mummy, Michael and I wandered around until it was lunch time. After lunch I went to Waitrose with Mummy as I have to be sure that she buys everything I want, and Michael spent time in more sports shops with Daddy.

There is no summer camp this week so Mummy is finding lots of ways to keep us busy. I spent this afternoon at fletcher and Willow's house and had so much fun that I came home and went straight to bed! I've arranged to see a few other friends this week too and Mummy has said we can do lots of crafty activities as that's what I love most at the moment.

Next week my Auntie Charlotte is coming to stay for 5 days. Michael and I are so excited! We have lots of plans, just cannot wait to see her. Mummy has bought us a boat for the swimming pool and has promised Auntie Charlotte will take me out in it! We are counting down the days!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend back there.

Lots of love

Eid al-Fitr

Ramadan has come to an end and today we are starting our four day weekend for Eid. I'm so pleased that Daddy will get to spend so much time with us! Mummy seems more pleased about being able to go to a coffee shop and drink coffee... Unfortunately our weekend will be much quieter than we had planned as poor Mikey Moo is not very well. He keeps being sick (on Mummy haha) and is very upset. I'm the only one that seems to make him happy again but it doesn't last very long.

Poorly Mikey Moo

I spent another week at summer camp last week but was sad not to be able to see any friends on the days we had arranged play dates because of Michael. I was also sad to say goodbye to my wonderful teacher after 18 months. It was her last day yesterday but hopefully we made it very special with our little party. I only have a few weeks left at nursery too, I start big school in September! Mummy is taking me shopping this weekend for my uniform.

I am also hoping Mummy will take us swimming tomorrow morning when Daddy is playing golf. Hopefully the weather will be better, it has been a strange August so far with rain, clouds and relatively low temperatures! I've even been able to ride my bike outside which I am getting very good at! Michael shouts at me to let him have a go too, I'm not keen on that idea at all though.

It's raining!!

I hope everyone is having a lovely week. We have visitors lined up- Auntie Charlotte is flying over in 10 days and my Grandad (and hopefully Nanny) are coming in September! I can't wait to show them my new school!

Lots of love

I am 3!

On Monday, I turned 3. I'd had a big party the weekend before with lots of my friends (sadly some of my closest friends weren't there though so I've asked mummy for another party when they get back! She said no...) On the Sunday I went into Summer Camp at nursery and my teacher and teaching assistant had decorated the room and we had cakes, played party games, danced and played with balloons! I had a wonderful time and loved celebrating with my nursery friends.

I was very excited to come into the living room to find a carpet of pink balloons and lots of presents for me on Monday morning. I had a lovely fairy garden and fairies from Mummy and Daddy and Michael bought me books, sunglasses, Barbies and accessories and so much more. Aoife had also given my Mummy some presents that I could open when it was my actual birthday and I loved my princess dressing up set, hair clips and space hopper. I was very lucky. After breakfast I went to soft play with Daddy and Michael. The lady there painted flowers on my arms and we had a lot of fun.

Mummy had booked afternoon tea for us at the Ritz Carlton which we all really enjoyed. I was so pleased when the staff came out singing Happy Birthday with a big cheesecake for me. It had an enormous sparkler on top that I couldn't blow out! The rest or the restaurant diners sang along and clapped for me. I loved every minute of it! I was so tired by the end of it that I had an early night ready for summer camp fun the next day!

I cannot wait to turn 4 next year now!
