Question Does anyone know this lovely family?

Whilst on holiday in Bali, in July 2007 we met a lovely British expat family who are living in Dubai, but unfortunately we don't have any contact details for them. I was just wondering if anybody knows them from the details I'm going to give. The parents were Penny - a nursery teacher and Robin - who works for American Express. They had 2 teenage children called James and Stephanie, who go to a private school and can speak several languages.
We would be really grateful if anybody could give us any contact details for this family as we are hoping to visit Dubai and we would love to meet up with them.
Thank you in advance,
Sarah and Tom Hudson from Chesterfield, England.

Sound like a typical shallow, fake Dubai family to me. Did they bore you to death with what great cars they have and about their Villa in Arabian Ranches? Needle in a haystack springs to mind...

Seems I struck a raw nerve with some people. Hehe. I need to add smileys to avoid confusing them.

I mean I was one of those "intolerable" people with 2 cars, the villa in Springs and the kids at DBS. How I miss it, especially when it's blowing a gale.

But then my opinion doesn't count because I'm a bit of a salad dodger. If that's not shallow, I don't know what is...
