Dubai is terrible because sometimes you need to start work at 6am, but you roll in drunk from a night out at 3.25am

Tonight I will be staying in...I think. Actually, it kind of reminds me of my life in London about 6 years ago.

I think I'm reliving my youth, except I'm a bit fatter with a better tan.

Just have a nap for an hour or 2 when you get home and you'll be good to go again.

WAY too many people do not make their children wear seatbelts.

I find it utterly amazing how many kids you see bouncing up & down in the back of the car or even climbing over seats. In fact I would as far as to say it really upsets me actually - especially when you see them heading for SZR. Don't they realise what would happen to them if they were in a bad accident? :scared:

Interestingly, most of the drivers have their own seatbelts on.

I strap my kids in but I do sometimes smile at my own disapproval of those who don't as when I was a kid, there weren't any seatbelts in the back of the car and I travelled through Europe with my parents enjoying bouncing about and laying down for a sleep but would never dare for my children to enjoy the same freedom and exposure to danger.
