One down, three more to go :)

Yep, the kids and I have been in Dubai a year now. Boy, has that gone fast! I am sure the next three will fly by!!

Thank you for the welcome back - and that you found my holiday entries readable :) I'm afraid my entries won't be quite as interesting from now on ... until our next holiday at least - lol!

I am actually managing to stitch again - have worked pretty steadily on Verdure the past couple of nights but I will wait until I finish the column I am working on before sharing a pic. Once this column is done I will be halfway through the first page - only 19.5 pages to go - lol! I am hopeful of getting a couple of days in on Snowflake QS this week although I purchase three new QS this week in the HAED sale and I am being very tempted by one of them! I need to be good and resist!!!!

Okay, seems Blogger is letting me upload pics so I thought I'd show you my last major finish, which was in the first half of last year sometime ... I think! I remembered to take a photo while I was back in Australia before storing her away.

We have only just passed the halfway mark of our summer school holidays so finding ways to entertain the kids is continuing! It doesn't help that their friends are still away. Today we went to see Garfield 2 at the movies. Cute film but I think I would rather have seen Pirates II again. I then dragged them into Ken's office so I could do the end of month accounts stuff. They are good kids and they always manage to find ways to amuse themselves. Tomorrow I might take them 10 pin bowling or perhaps swimming?!

It's 1.30am so I'd better go hit the hay. No doubt my body will have me up and out walking the dog in six hours time, if not earlier!
