Uniform shopping and West 14th

The first five- day work week after Ramadan and I have to admit I'm pretty exhausted. It has been hectic so I was truly looking forward to the upcoming weekend!
On Thursday, hubby took the kids uniform shopping. The uniform shop was previously located near the kid's school but it turned out they had moved to Motor City, which is actually even more convenient for us. Hubby dropped off Joli at my work and she spent the afternoon in the office. It was very quiet on Thursday, with senior management doing meetings in Sweden and many other colleagues still on vacation. Joli bonded quickly with my colleague R's son and they spent the afternoon playing on their ipads, chatting about various games.
Yesterday, I and hubby went to the restaurant West 14th on the Palm. This place was recommended by some of hubby's crew members and it was a fantastic place.  It is located by the Oceana apartments, with a stunning view over Dubai Marina, the ocean and with a gorgeous pool and a lazy river surrounding the restaurant. We started off with some drinks and hubby decided to go for a starter; Sticky Calamari, served with a spicy sweet chili sauce. For main course, we opted for the drunken ribs; beef ribs marinated in Jack Daniel's. It was divine, the meat melted in my mouth and it was served together with glaced green beans and sweet potato chips. After our dinner, we decided to have a drink outside before heading home. It was a very humid evening and slightly warm to sit outside but the view was stunning and we had a nice chat with some of the bartenders.
Today, Joli has some friends over and the plans are taking them to the pool at some stage and that's it. It will be a very quiet day before another work week starts off tomorrow.
The other day I was browsing through Dubizzle, the Dubai version of "Blocket" and found a cute little desk. It has a few wear and tear marks but nothing that can't be fixed so I bought in on the spot and even managed to fit in the back of my Toyota Yaris (which is a really small car). It is now placed in the master bed room and provides me with a quiet corner when the office space is occupied.
