Welcome back, everyone is two years older and absolutely no wiser. However the frequency of interminable religious arguments seem to have declined.

Cheers BC, all good in the hood. Yes, tried desperately to leave Riyadh, but looks like I'm here for another year at least. Just in the middle of changing jobs and all that. How's life treating you?

Step daughter did her i-GCSE's and finished them off in Jeddah. We moved to Riyadh and she moved back to Boarding School in the UK - did her A Levels and has now started her second year at college in London.

My own daughter ( lives with her mother in UK ) came out here to start year 10 - but only lasted one term and then went back to the UK. Kids eh? Who'd have 'em....

What an atmosphere that place had...

Ey up - I'm not around these parts much any longer, having moved to Kenya. Still drop in from time to time though.
