Hi
I'm Barbara, 59, married with 3 grown up kids, maybe coming to Al Ain on my own to teach. Just wondering are there any opportunities to do wheel throwing pottery out there?

Hey everybody,
Moving out to Dubai for work the last week in August. Thirty eight year old female - (This is sounding like a bad line for a dating advert! Promise I won't mention my star sign or eye colour!)

Anyway I can't wait, looking at it as a new adventure, bringing myself and a set of golf clubs that I can't even use (Had 10 group lessons and I'm still pants)

Loving the banter and genuinely good advice that's given out on here.

Hi everyone. After a slight visa hiccup I'm very pleased to have actually arrived in Riyadh. This forum has been a life-saver for me in terms of what to expect from KSA --- and what to pack. Thank you very much British expats!

Hi, everyone

God! I hope this 'thread thingy-whatsit' works OK.

Just joined your British Expats forum, literally a couple of minutes ago.
My name's Paul, originally from Johannesburg but brought up in the U.K. since I was a small lad, so I'm actually a Brit with an old Afrikaaner name.

Not quite sure what to say in this first message ... or is it a 'post' I'm writing here? Haven't even started doing my profile yet. Next job after this. Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I'm not actually in Dubai but a colleague of mine suggested I join this Sand Pit group ... have I got that right? She said it's a great place to make new friends and chat about stuff etc, even if I'm not going to be living there. I'm actually working not too far away, near Basra in Iraq, for S.P.I.E.-Lukoil, on a 28/28 rotation. They tell me I'll be travelling through Dubai on my way to and from the job but I've no idea if I'll actually get the chance to stop over there and have a look around. I hope so ... Dubai sounds like an interesting place.

Anyway, I'll leave it there for the moment. Don't want to bore the pants off anybody! My profile will contain more stuff about me, I guess. And I hope someone will say hello back to me quite soon. Bye for now. Paul

Hello & welcome, but you might want to do yourself a favour and change your user name to something anonymous and remove your name from your post.
