The three day long weekend has come to its end and I have to admit, I could easily have added one more day! The weekend never seem to be long enough. On Thursday evening, I and friend T went to a wonderful birthday party. Our friend and previous colleague N celebrated her last year as a 30+ year old (any reason to celebrate is a good one!) and had gathered friends at their gorgeous villa in Jumeirah. We enjoyed sparkling wine and lots of good food! Friday was a lot more quiet, much due to previous day's bash. After the weekly grocery run, I and Joli went to the pool for an hour and then hubby and I enjoyed a quiet tapas dinner.
Since I haven't seen the beach for months, I and Joli decided to hit the beach yesterday, just the two of us as the men of the family prefer to stay indoors when it is hot outside. We went to Jumeirah Beach Hotel and had a very relaxing day. The hotel has one large children's pool with a slide (and it is not too shallow) and another pool for both kids and adults and of course two beaches with a wonderful view over Burj Al Arab. It was quite windy and the red flag was up so we only admired the high waves, built a sand castle and went back to the pool.
Joli had a swimming gala this morning which I attended before going to work. I decided to move my PT sessions to Sundays and Wednesdays instead so another session awaits me tonight.
Elias finally decided that he would have a hair cut so off he went with a friend and came back looking much older without all that hair on top of his head!
The weather is very hot and humid outside, it's like walking into a wet blanket every time you step outside. Summer is definitely here!


  1. Vilken härlig helg!!!
    Här har det varit kalas också. Och idag har vi nog alla haft lite post-kalas feelings haha! Jag njuter dock över att det nu är ett år till nästa gång hahaha! Alltid kul när kalas blir lyckade men det är varje år lite stress och så innan tycker jag. Skönt då det är över.
    Kram och ha en fin vecka!

    1. Visst tar det pa krafterna med kalas och nog ar det skont att veta att det ar ett helt ar till nasta men det sag jattefint ut med fiskdamm och allt! Och visst namnde M att din van och hennes van ar vanner (ja varlden ar liten!). Roligt sammantraffande i alla fall! Hoppas allt gar bra infor konferensen och du hinner andas lite emellan!

  2. Vilken härlig helg ni verkar ha haft det. Barnen har växt enormt ser jag..

  3. I also want to visit Jumeirah beach Hotel since everybody is raving about it, but I'm not back in Dubai until next week, so I guess it will be too hot by then:) Looking forward to see you soon again!

    1. Well you can relax under an umbrella with something cold in your hand and you'll be fine! We must catch up when you get back! xx

  4. This allows the camera to act as a standard Mini-DV camcorder just
    by flipping the switch. So, if you decide you
    can't do without the LCD panel and have the cash to spare, then you would want to invest in a long-lasting battery. In the kiosks of the Center you will come across detailed information as well as discount coupons on the island's various attractions.
    The tape, a mini DV, goes into the side that you hold
    in the palm of your hand by the press of a button on the top of
    the door.
