Annie – Ramadan – Kenya!

Well, its been an eventful few weeks! Annie arrived in Dubai in August & moved in around the corner from me! She goes all the way to Dubai to live next door to her cousin:) We’ve met a few times, she called over last night for the rugby (lets not go there!) and is in great form.

Since my skiing exploits, (i failed level 1 & have to repeat it!) I’ve been rather busy. It began with going to the Burj for an “indulgent’ afternoon tea for Pauls Birthday. I’d highly recommend it to anyone coming to visit! Although 40 euros for a G&T & glass of wine just made me laugh:) We got a Friday brunch in before Ramadan started on September 13th & Paul & I were lucky to be flying to Ireland that day so we mised the first few days of it.

Ireland consisted of arriving in Dublin at 5.30am, legging it to Clonmel, frantically getting ready for a wedding at 1pm in Fethard! It was really good fun, all the girls from Clonmel were there, so it was great to catch up with everyone in the one go. The rest of the holiday for me was spent walking around in a daze due to tiredness but I did get to see Nanny and then up to Ron & Eileen before I left. We were only in Ireland from friday to tuesday morning so it was a very brief trip.

We’ve just been following the rugby since we got back from Ireland and had a really nice quiet weekend last weekend (first one in ages!). We are getting ready for our trip to Kenya on Oct 12th so I’m getting really excited about it. I’m just worried my camera wont be good enough to take all the pictures I plan on taking! We are heading to Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru & Amboselli Park (at the base of Kilimanjaro). Ramadan ends then too so its friday brunches, eating lunch out and lots lots more!

Hope this finds you all keeping well & safe!
