Cynic.

I'm just the help around here. I don't own the site.

I am feeling very pleased.
There's such a feeling of joy leaving some dusty shithole that it's almost worth going there just to leave it! On the flight leaving Riyadh for the last time I was uncontrollably beaming ear to ear. The British Midlands trolley dolly was wheeling out the drinks cart while the plane was still semi vertical from take off, even she was asking why I looked so happy.

Good luck in the new role

Just an update.

Three weeks left in this shithole.

To be fair, I do come back in January but only for a week. I move out of my hotel apartment by the 20th of December.

Good luck with the move. Change is always exciting, unless that involves going to Doha I guess.

Tip for the UK: live a little.

Open your heart to others, buy a dog, get a 4x4 and enjoy the great outdoors. Invite people over for a BBQ on July 17th (the only clear day).

I'd never buy a dog. I'd rescue one.

here here. Nobody in the world needs to buy dogs any more. So many lovely animals (who won’t have disgusting breeding problems later in life) need saving. Rescues are challenging at first but, almost without exception, they turn into amazing long term pets.

My Frankie loves his permanent home (but he is quite mental so not sure if he really knows). He’s gods to us and we reciprocate.

Bad dogs are excellent representatives of bad owners.

Oh, sorry, good luck DXB. I used to love life in the sandpit, but I’m starting to be slightly jealous of you .
