|My life as a working hobo!|
So we’ve had a 2 weeks teaching now and 1 week left before the holiday. Classes are fine etc. Loving everything about being here. Spending plenty of time down at Hilton Beach club and just generally enjoying life.
Last weekend Becky made dinner for a few of us to celebrate the end of the first teaching week which was really nice. There was me, Becky, Poonam, Tracy and Patricia. We had a really nice laugh and it was just nice.
This weekend we had a new teachers meal at Al Hamra with all the governors of the school. We ended up at the top table with management, which was interesting. Then we went to Sailing club as it was Patrick and Nancy’s birthdays so we went to celebrate. R was there playing in a band and he kept talking to me. It was the first time we’d really had a proper chat.
But then on Friday me and Linda were heading out to go to the Golf club for Internet when Maureen came home with her son. And OMG he is lovely! So I was thinking OMG he’s so nice. And when they went inside I expressed this to Linda. 5 minutes later Maureen came back out to get her house keys from the car. Linda said he’s got a nice car and I was like yeah nice car for a nice guy! We started giggling so Maureen asked what she’d missed. Linda said ahh Melissa was just saying how good looking she thinks your son Gareth is. I tell you at that moment I wanted to ground to swallow me up. Maureen said he’s got a good heart as well. Then as if it couldn’t get any worse she asked is he single then pointed directly at me. Maureen then put her hands together and was like oh we shall have to see about getting you two together.
So that night we were at the Sailing Club and he spent the evening flirting with me. Part way through the night he was getting money out of his mams purse as she kept telling him to get money out for her to buy drinks and he looked at me and went I’m raiding my mams purse I said isn’t that what all children do. He said I’m not a child I’m a real man! So then later on he got someone to take a photo of the two of us. Then a little later still he pulled his mam into a photo on one side of him and then pulled me in tight on the other side. He seems really sweet and he along with Michelle and Becky came back to mine for more drinks. I was then ill in the loo for a while as I had drank too much and when Michelle kept suggesting he could go he kept saying no not till I know Melissa’s ok! So eventually I pulled myself round and he was dancing round my living room like a mad man dragging me up to dance and I was actually really impressed by his ability to dance.
After Michelle went home he came and cuddled up with me on the sofa and it felt sooo right. He eventually kissed me and I was on another planet because it really felt good. He did try it on as is to expected he’s a man after all. But I calmly told him no not while we were drunk and that when that sort of thing happened we’d both be sober
Then when he finally left my flat about 3am he kissed me goodnight and I told him I would like to see him again as I liked him and he smiled and kissed me again. This means that hungover I’m not sure if this is the possible start of a relationship or not. Unfortunately he went back to Dubai today before I got a chance to speak to him.
I went to see Maureen to try and find something out and she told me he was back in Dubai and that she would catch up with me later in the week as she was off out. But he’d told her I’d been ill as she knew and that means he must have spoken to her about me. I hope she tells me he feels the same! I’ve added him as a friend on facebook so I am hoping that just maybe he’s already accepted me as a friend and sent me a message. I know its early days but I do really like him so fingers crossed everyone that he might like me too. He really seems sweet and I enjoyed being with him and well I reckon he’d be pretty cool. As he’d not be in my face all the time as he works away quite a bit with him being an air steward for Emirates and of course living in Dubai. But at the same time he has somewhere to stay here which isn’t mine in the early days plus his mam seems to have given us her consent, so she’ll be fine if he’s coming over to see me and staying with her. OHHH!!! I’m really going to have to keep myself busy so I don’t think about him too much until I know what’s happening. Going to have to catch up with Maureen as well as soon as possible. Really hope he gets in touch soon! It’s gonna drive me nuts otherwise.
Anyway, today we went to Spinneys to buy Pork as its the only place you can buy pork in RAK so I now have pork chops, bacon and ham! YEAH!!!!
Then tonight we were heading to Tower Links to use Internet and trying to find a taxi when a lovely family pulled over and offered us a lift part of the way. They seemed ok so I agreed. The guys turned out to be Australian and the wife and her part of the family were living in Abu Dhabi. So we got chatting and I said probably a small chance but not sure which school my friend works at do you know by any chance a Mr Cooney. And you will never guess the youngest child was like thats my teacher. So tomorrow Steve will get one of his children say I gave your friend a lift last night in RAK and she said to say hi she’s fine!
But what are the chances of that?
Anyway, I must go to bed now as really tired after 2 nights going to bed after 3am and still waking up at 6am! So need to try and catch up a bit of sleep for work. Last week before the holiday week! YEAH! Hoping to go to Dubai during the week either with Poonam to see her friend Shannon or to see Gareth if its a green light! Also hoping that my VISA is through in time so I can sort out a car and that Les manages to get across from Oman for a few days!
Will keep you posted and will try and not let it be so long in between postings next time!
