Bit different from when i was over in July i guess...

Is is unusually wet for Jan?

What's going on? yesterday we had pictures of snow covered cars in teh Saudi desert, not we're having floods and torrential downpourings in Dubai.

Is this the effect of global warming?

To be honest, I'm not reet bothered, as long as its sunny and warm by the time I get out there...

Cold, wet and windy here in Nottingham.One word descriptor: Bleak.

Is smoking banned in public places there too? What the score in Riyadh?

Just thinking about Inse's fag break and having to go out?

Again, not reet bothered, as I don't smoke anymore ( 15 months now ) but might take it up again one day if I get the urge.

I've lived here since 1991, and to be honest, when I first moved here, I loved it, but I've had enough of it now, and really want to leave! It's like the end of the line of what once was a beautiful relationship.
