The past week has been busy. B.U.S.Y.
I've been up and down Sheik Zayed Rd too many times to count. We've bought furniture, we've waited for deliveries, I've had arguments, there have been stuff-ups galore. I've pulled my hair out, I've shook my head in disbelief. I've struggled to understand people's accents, they've struggled to understand mine.
There have been times when I've thought: "This is all too hard. What are we doing?" Others when I've thought: "This is awsome".
Best of all we're in our new home and we're loving it. This morning, being the weekend, we went down to the beach and swam and then cooled off in the pool. We had coffees and relaxed. And generally felt lucky and amazed that we now call this place home. I have to pinch myself some times.
It's so nice to be able to take some time to breathe this weekend, there has just been so much going on. I now feel like we can plant some roots and enjoy this place for what it is.
Before we left, my dad said to me: "This experience will be what you make it." So true. I plan on making it fun, memorable and the time of our lives.
