Smile Considering a move to Al Ain

Hi, hubby has been offered a job in Al Ain. We currently live in South West England. We have two children aged 5 and 7. Are there any British families out there with similar aged children can tell me what day to day life is like please? Can I wear a sun dress/ strappy tops? Do I need to be covered all the time?c an I go out alone? is there plenty of sports or is it too hot? What is social life like for wives and children? What are normal office/working hours? What are schools like? Are there Half term hols?
Any comment would be appreciated. Thank you

Other handy info to get yourself settled in can be found here - Life In Al Ain | The Desert Diva

The co-ordinates of two out of the three British Curriculum Schools (Brighton College, Al Ain English Speaking School) can be found in the GPS co-ords blog. The third, International School is located near Al Ain Mall. Hope this helps.
