Joli loves her swimming and has just been moved up from Beginner 2 to Improver 1! That is fantastic, considering she only started her swimming classes in April last year! The timing has also changed and is now on Tuesdays at 2.30. If the Swedish class starts soon, then both kids will have their activities on the same day, which saves me a lot of trouble. It is ok to leave early once in a while, but not every week. At the same time, I do want them to participate in some after school activities, especially physical activities. Always a bit of logistics headache but usually we find a good solution.
I have invested in a new suit and had it altered the other day. Me and my short, Asian legs can never fit in any dress pants or jeans without serious alteration. The waist line also had to be adjusted slightly and now it looks great. There are plenty of good places here in Dubai for alteration. I am using Megastich in Al Barsha, just behind Mall of the Emirates and opposite of Dubai American Academy. They do a fantastic work and it costs next to nothing!
