It’s Sunday here so back to work for Clint and off to school for Lachie, although even after a big weekend (that included riding his bike up to the shops for the first time while Clint jogged) he was more then happy to bounce out of bed this morning as he has a friend coming home after school with him.
Clint’s Grandmother has been here just over a week so we have been doing some of the tourist things. Clint is hoping to take a day off this week and take her to the Grand Mosque. Yesterday we headed up to Dubai Mall, it is the biggest mall in the world (apparently) with an internal floor area of 5.9 million square feet and has 1200 shops, plus cinemas, a zillion restaurants as well as an Olympic size ice-rink, 3 story aquarium (apparently with the worlds largest… isn’t everything here… single viewing window which is 32.88m x 8.3m) with 33000 aquatic animals including fish, sharks and stingrays, a gold souk (also apparently the worlds biggest indoor one) and some amazing fountains…. everything you need really when you go to pick up some milk and bread!
We are in the process of finalising a trip to Italy for the first week of the April school holidays. We fly into Rome then have booked a villa in a little village in Tuscany for the week. We get back home easter saturday (in time for the easter bunny) which gives me just under a week before my baby girl turns 3… where has all the time gone???
