Default Hi all, this place doesn't change!

I didn't really want to start a new thread but felt a bit silly posting in the Newbie thread, as I'm not technically new, and I couldn't find a relevant thread to post in. I hope some people on the forum remember me.


I hope you're all well.


It looks like I will be heading to AD sometime soon. I've been back in Blighty for a while. Its been nice but I'm very excited about coming back to the ME. Also quite excited about not having to go back to Doha.

I think iggle extracted all of the necessary information in a way that offended nobody.

We need some new posters. Even if they are returning old ones.

Welcome back to the forum

I'll be seeing you on tinder!

On a serious note, if you need any help or advice on moving to Abu give me a shout. I have no problem answering any questions, how ever small.

Thanks very much. The main question I have at the moment is how much is a serviced apartment in a nice hotel likely to cost me? I have zero intention of getting my own place at the moment. I realise a lot of this will happen on the ground when I get there, but thought I'd ask anyway.

At one point my entire social life was AOL and then AIM messenger. My hubby at the time worked ridiculous hours and my son was young so I didn't get out much.

A studio is around AED9,000-10k all in. I was looking into this myself.

Cheers. I definitely need at least one bedroom. I can't be doing with having a bed in my sitting room.


Also is it me or is it quite a bit quieter round here than it was?
