The Human Sling...A Must See!

The Big News!


We are pregnant, there is no other way of saying it! WE ARE PREGNANT! And as you can tell we are very excited! It is the 13th week already and all is going smoothly, a bit of nausea at first but nothing major. I don’t have any dramatic cravings but I cannot stand a few of my favourite things like avocado and garlic, especially in salads. I am eating so many fruits and vegetables I wonder if baby will be vegetarian!
I am exercising gently, a bit of walking, cycling and swimming. Oh and yes I have a small belly now enough to prevent me from fitting in my own clothes.
We are going to be parents, how amazing is that?!
Can you imagine a mini Michael with freckles or a mini Sandie with curly hair running around the house? That would be lovely, out of this world!

We had a scan and we even have a DVD which we can watch anytime of the time. Baby was chewing, swallowing and kicking a few times. Baby is 7 mm. I cannot feel baby yet but hope fully in the following trimestre.

Ouf! Finally, I am back!!

Ouf! Finally!! Well, it has been a roller coaster the past few months, so many changes I need to share with you all.
We have both changed jobs, well basically Michael has and I have resigned which we thought was for the best.
So we had to move. We are still in the U.A.E. but in a different Emirate.
We had to start from scratch and buy our own furniture, from the plates to the chairs. Can you imagine furnishing a whole house? Let me tell you, it is no easy task! But it is done and what a relief I tell you!
As for the internet, let’s say it took the company more than a month to install it. They say they are drowning with demands and orders.
The 2 bedroom flat is fantastic with a sea view and a mosaic pool on the roof which is always windy. There is a gym as well and everything is of a walking distance as long as it is not in the scorching summer heat. We are also surrounded by lagoons and gardens which is very picturesque.
