I have meetings on Thursday morning so being really rather sad. Then Farmers Market on Friday as it's the penultimate one and largely hibernating. Possibly making some chutney (not a euphemism).

The glamour...

Which farmer's market? There's one out the back of Exec Towers in Business Bay...if it's the same I have no excuse for not buying more jars from you.

We have the mrs' Dad and partner arriving tomorrow night. Thursday I had Al Zorah booked for golf but have cancelled to do family time things. Nevermind. Brunch on friday, fry up saturday, football to watch, driving range when I can sneak off and generally just chill / entertain.

I buy veg from there but the preserve business is currently dormant. No time for it currently but I still make a few things from time to time. If friends want stuff they need to collect from me.

If the Farmer's Market is on your doorstep you really should go there. Open 8am to 1pm and visitors might like it. Great baked goods from Baker & Spice too.

I've had a disaster to be honest.

My partner was told incorrect information (no matter how much i told her she was wrong). She thought that her visit visa was for 90 days, then she gets to do a visa run and it renews for another 90 days. Long story short she's banned from UAE for 90 days. I am not 100% sure, i just know shes banned until Aug 2nd (with no fine). It's of my understanding now the the 30 day visa run is not possible for schengen passports (i think the UK is okay)

Anyway, flights were £250 via Qatar airways, no direct flights, but overall 9hrs was the shortest i could find to the island. The hotels looked affordable as well. I am now looking to do a 2 weeks break with a mix of Seychelles and Zanzibar in August.

90 days of freedom i guess...every cloud?

It's Mother's Day on Sunday, down here.

Probably not doing much...Car has been in the garage, so not able to head out and anything...we're not up to much.

Terribly exciting we are.

UK in the morning. A cheeky distillery tour and a nice stay up in the highlands, followed by a stay at Cameron House on the banks of Loch Lomand followed by a heavy night of beer, strippers and clubbing in Glasvegas!
