Look what Zadok built!

With the help of some other people, hehe!

The project Mike and Zadok have been working on is nearly finished. It's sitting in the Drydocks waiting to be launched. It is the bottom part of a massive oil rig. When it leaves it will be towed to Europe to have the topside fitted. That is all I am saying because I have no idea what I am talking about and I'll be in trouble!
I have 4 1/2 days of school to go... Can't wait!

A few more from the Creek cruise

Here we are enjoying a drink before we set off to battle the Bur Dubai traffic (Muriel did all the battling!)

And here we are set to head off to the Madinat having had a very enjoyable evening.

I'm trying to write shorter posts so I'll blog more often....

Cruisin and Groovin' (hehe)

We had a very hectic weekend with end of year celebrations. Everyone is going away and some people are leaving for good.

Year 2 headed out on the Bateaux Dubai for dinner. We cruised up the creek and wined and dined.

A good night was had by all.... Except maybe Sara but that's another story!

On Thursday night Zadok and I went to Martin's final Karama party.... It had a yellow theme as he is headed for the Canary Islands (lucky for some).

I know I am the main feature of this photo but I put it here because of Martin in the background.... In his tweety costume, Just look at those pins!

Jen's Visit

My very good friend Jen popped over from London for a whirlwind visit last weekend. Jen and i met when I started studying Indonesian in Year 11 and have remained fast friends ever since. She has now left Tasmania behind for a year and is currrently living in London.

Jen arrived on Thursday morning so we had 4 days to see the sight and have delights. Here's what we managed to see! First it was off to Wild Wadi! I finished school a bit early and we zipped off on Thursday afternoon. Now some people I know don't like Wild Wadi, but you have to go in with the right attitude. It's not a massive water park but it's nicely set up and has all these slides that shoot you upwards, which is fun!

This is the Jumeirah Sceirah, which I hate but Jen made me go on it. I still hate it. Hehe. Last time I went with Zadok on the weekend and it was horrendous waiting in line, but Jen and i hardly had to wait at all.

Next we raced off home to get ready for dinner. It was a bit of a Year 2 thing I organised as so many of us had birthdays in May, including ME! Here isd Sheila, Me and Sara (Sara shares my birthday).

Here are the three stooges, that's not a Galloping Rhino I see emerging is it?

We were at the Al Marooj in Pergolas, the buffet there is very good. It was pasta night my favourite! We headed out after and it was a bit of a rowdy night.... Don't think we need too many details! Next on the list... Down by the Creek (if you v=can bear it again!)
