Here it is...

Good morning good morning!!!

How's it going? I'm quite excited here, we just booked some holiday!! A week in Wales in May in a cute little cottage, I can't wait!! You know how satisfying it is when things tick all your boxes? Well it's a bit like that. Just something really nice and relaxing to look forward to.

In the meantime, I may be doing a little more travelling, but for work purposes this time. I mentioned this to you a couple of weeks ago, and now I think it's time to let you in on my secret! I didn't want to say anything before it was all fully organised and definite, but it's taking much longer than anticipated, and I just can't hold it in anymore!!! I should be off to Dubai and Abu Dhabi for about 3 weeks from sometime next week, and again around June time. I feel two ways about it really. Of course I'm really happy, I've never been anywhere like that before, but on the other hand I'm getting really irritated with not being in control. I'm not the one in control of the start date, the flights, the accomodation. And having to hassle people, saying no, I'm not being funny, but I'm not staying in "office accomodation" whatever that may be (described to me by someone as a little studenty, sharing with other people from the office) - hum, tempting as that might be, no thanks!! So really looking forward to it. I mean, the food, the souqs, I just can't wait! And hopefully Boyfriend will be able to join me for a few days when I go back in June so that I can show him around. It's really not the kind of place we'd go to on holiday, so it's a really good excuse to get out there and make the most of it.

So there. I'm enjoying my time at the moment, the sunshine, the warmth. But kind of feeling like I'm living on standby. Waiting for someone to tell me I'm leaving tomorrow. Thinking of all that knitting I could get done on the plane if only I get myself organised. And ever so happy I bought these interchangeable circular knitting needles that are allowed on board. Joy ;-)

Good morning to you too, you lucky lady. A holiday in Wales and trips to Dubai and Abu Dhabi - how exciting.
I'm a bit of a control freak too, so I'd be pestering the hell out of the poor soul who was doing the organising - just to make sure that they were doing it right.
I don't envy you knitting on the circular needles - they do my head in.

I knew it! Ahh my guessing skills know no bounds.
That's so exciting - what an opportunity! I hope you're taking your camera with you :-D
I hope it all gets sorted for you quickly and that it all goes well xxxxx

Woah that's crazy exciting! That sounds so cool, I need a job that allows me to go to there, although I'd be freaking out a bit about it too if I'm honest.

Make sure you take your camera!
