I am feeling very delicate today! In fact that is an understatement! In the words of my two sons ‘I am Hanging’! Why am I feeling this dreadful on a Tuesday morning, you may ask? Quite simply, it was self-inflicted, no sympathy required, its due to overindulgence with one too many free drinks on a Monday night, enjoying one of Abu Dhabi’s most popular expat traditions Ladies Night.

I have recently returned from two summer trips to the UK and as always it takes me a little time to settle back in and readjust to the Ab Dabs lifestyle. It’s great to catch up with my boys and friends back at home, spend time in London and enjoy days and nights out with everyone but as always it goes too quick, clocking up mile after mile in the hire car and before I know it I am back at Heathrow waiting for my flight back to the desert.
