THe best thing about living in Dubai in the summer
 
Is a job like my one (although the wife will disagree- i hope)

i.e Getting the hell out of the oven that is Dubai

Just back from Oz,

Now off to Korea/Japan and wherever a ship i have to catch drops me off (hopefully not North Korea:unsure:)

A month is a long time away, but heho, the summer will be drawing to a close by the time i am back, and my good lady will be another month closer to motherhood

life is just dandy

right, i have a list of around 30 houshold chores i need to sort out prior to leaving!

BC, need to take a raincheck on the lakes day until i get back!!!:thumbsup:

How on earth does your better half cope with the heat whilst she is pregnant? :)

The best thing about being in Dubai for the summer is not drowning in the pissy, wet, miserable home counties.

I adore the summer!! I literally count down the weeks for the end of term (even though mine isn't at school). Everyone clears off, the roads are quieter! the hotels all go on offer! I get to spend time with my friends who are mums and are normally racing around all the time! Dubai Summer surprises starts so everywhere is on sale! what the hell are you lot moaning about!

it sucks.

after a decade here, i thought you would have begun to realise that.

Go visit Austrailia or somewhere else and you will get an insight to having a way of life, not just an existence

its not the worst place on the planet, but it is FAR from the best

ok im in a bad mood:frown::D

i don't agree...it's what you make of it. I love it and it certainly isn't just an existance. The thought of having to move back to the uk fills me with dread...

MM, xx

exactly and you know the likelyhood is that one day that will happen because this place is never really your home, your country etc

i was refering to life in other countries, where you do become a citizen, part of the community, not just an asset to help evolve the place
