So we have just got over the 8 month mark here in Dubai. The final rent cheque will be paid next month to take us to the 1 year mark. So how do I feel?
Mixed emotions right now. It's been an amazing time. I have managed to somehow build up and retain an awesome group of friends, that in the last few weeks have saved maya and I with kindness and child care. I am in week 2 of opening a new school and it has been a rewarding logistical nightmare really. I love my job but it's not what they promise, that is for sure. My hours are crazy, maya spends a lotta time just waiting for mummy and my house looks like a bomb has gone off! Tonight I cooked dinner for the rest of the week in the hope we don't eat take out every night again lol.
Dubai is wonderful however unless you work for a company that gives you benefits (not us funnily enough )you are pretty screwed really. It then comes down to:
"Same shit different country"
However we are working hard and managing to grab a day a weekend to spend as a family. Maya absolutely loves school and had a play date with a classmate today.
Love you guys x
