Today I am flying to India. Driving from Delhi up north to an orphanage run by a friend, check it out here... So another gap in posts! Hopefully not 2 years long like the last one.

Having said that, blogger is driving me mad with uploading photos, if I try and format differently the pictures/text never does what I want! Grrrr...

Since I have stopped working I have managed to have 3 holidays... With another (sort of) coming up! In Feburary I popped over to Muscat in Oman to visit my good friend Muriel. Muscat is so beautiful, it's nestled into the mountains and they have rules about how tall buildings can be built (not very). It's much more laid back and casual than frantic Dubai. Charlie is super cute, he must be heaps bigger now and about to get a little brother!

Our new neighbourhood

We finally moved into our new apartment at the end of January. We are waiting on the pool and gym to be finished, and the metro station (soon soon I hope). There is another station about 20 mins walk from here but it's pretty much too hot to walk there now. A few weeks ago we snapped these pics on our way out to the pub. The station is in Downtown Duabi and it services The Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. The first pic is of our apartment, there are 12 towers altogetner I think, all with about 40 floors, give or take. Joined in with the tourists taking pics of the Burj for the second one!
