We don't get told this far in advance and it depends on when the HR Director might have holiday booked as to which days suits best.

I'm expecting Tue / Wed / Thur.

Also 9 days in Kuwait, although currently Sunday 19th is showing up on my system as a working day, I hope that changes soon! Off to Bahrain for the week, my first time. Not looking forward to the airport on Thursday night!

Hello! Arrived back in February after 4 years in Muscat. Got the driving licence last week, only took 6 months. Was a pain without - live in Salmiya and work in Eqaila.

Where are you heading off to over Eid?

I'm afraid UKCG it kind of takes the shine off you a bit. You're a tiny bit less special now there are two of you in Kuwait.

I had you as this roving marauder....a maverick in Kuwait City, if you will. Now, you're part of a small posse. Are you the leader? Time will tell. Is AndrewGrant going to turn you over and make this a one horse town again?

I can't wait.
