Palm Jumeirah

Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

I was going to include this in a wrap up post of Dubai but Palm Jumeirah is so in-your-face that I decided it needed it’s own post. Plus, I took a gazillion photos.

Thelma and Louise

We have two new additions to our family – meet Thelma and Louise.

I have to confess, I can’t tell them apart, so we often call them “Thelma or Louise” if there is just one doing something funny/crazy/silly/stupid – didn’t think that one through! [click to continue…]

I love February – not only because it’s my birthday month. For some reason I always feel the year starts in February. January tends to be a bit of a blur of Christmas recovery, the tennis and the cricket. And a lot of denial that work needs to get started again. Anyone else feel that way?

But February always feels full of promise. Maybe it’s because I always set goals around my birthday. This year is no exception to the goal setting. I just need to get started!
