I didn't mind it too much, the biscuits were ok.

oooohh stuck up cows, how its changed a lot to when i was a member and ran some of the activities, but of course i was thrown out when the kids reached 6......

if they are saying how did you manage to get into mangrove, well i did look at them right at the beginning, when it was still a building site, so thats how you got in there at the right time, so those people obviously havent been here as a family for years then....

it was just flippant 'knitting circle' comments that was made to my wife. She has been a full on expat pretty much all her life and has seen and heard it all...

I agree, its the newbie wifes from the construction boom who found themselves here living a lifestyle punching way above their usual weight. (friday night domino's at the local social club in Hull), albeit most of the hubbies have now been found out and sacked...

they come here and automatically get a big car, maid, nursery, gym membership, club membership, brunch frequenter, massive delusions of grandeur..when in fact they are common as trash...

i mean, sending a baby to nursery at 12 weeks, almost makes the poor wee mite seem like an inconvenience..

We and my wife are working class scum, but we know it....

well at least you know your place.... and i know that you always think that i am in the "knitting circles" to which you know that is not true and couldnt be further from the truth, but did they really say that? ooooh you are also forgetting to put in the list of "dos" 2 big 4x4s not just one, a big boat etc!

So so true! I'm always amased by how chav these people are and cannot see it.

Honestly a white X5 on credit hardly means you have made it.

jamiestarr is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Baby Nurseries in Abu Dhabi

My wife and I have enjoyed reading the comments, but honestly the idea was to just get her out of the house (with my wife) for a few hours a day in order to interact with other children. My wife would stay with her.

Thanks for all your comments though - very useful.
