Daily update for my Boys 30 June 2014





Hello Little Men !

How are my Champs doing on this lovely Monday evening ? I hope well and safe πŸ™‚

Well it turned out to be a bit of a not so productive day , I had to go out to the Mall for a couple of things in the morning as I had no credit on the wifi thing at home so had to go charge it , had to take my dry cleaning in also so I can get met stuff ready to pack again. Then I ended up helping Ouma set up her new blackberry touch screen phone , now the issue here is it looks like a cure and in theory should be pretty easy to set up right ? Think again ! Lol , maybe it is because it has no keyboard , the whole thing is touch screen which I know you two are masters off , me not so much as I have told you before , I seem to be able to manage my IPad ok because the keyboard is bigger but trying to set up email accounts , Bbm , what’s up , twitter etc on a tiny screen keyboard , my worst nightmare ! It took me most of this afternoon and I am still not done but have decided to try again tomorrow , the funny thing is after spending hours to update , configure and set up , Ouma gives it one look and asks , where do I press the numbers if I want to make a call ? Honest answer , I have no clue , lol as I have not been able to figure that part out yet … I think we will have to send Ouma on a six month training course on how to use this beast of a phone , lol

So this all meant that I have to get up really early tomorrow to get my month end stuff done and touch base with the office in PaK , the 3 hour time difference is not helping either at the moment ….but what to do as they say !

My chest is again not great today but it still seems better than last week so I guess that is a good sign.

It’s gone pretty cold here also tonight but yet today I was really hot in the car when I went out , but hey ,it was still bright , bright blue skies and plenty of Sunshine so all good !

I hope you both have had a good start to your week , I was sent some lovely photo’s of you both also today , I see you have had your summer hair cuts , looks pretty cool , the jumpers are a little busy for my liking but maybe you two like them πŸ™‚

Hope to see you both as always a little later under our big old green tree in dreamland , can’t wait for my double O dream cuddles !

Night , night , Champs …sweet dreams …..

Love you both thiiiiiiisssssss much and miss you sooooo much more !

Love you Little Men ….always …..

The Cinderella Law: Government Regulation of Parental Love

Family Court Injustice

Could parents in the UK lose custody of children or be thrown in jail if the government determines that the parent does not love their children enough? This has happened to one father, who has not only lost custody of his daughter but the judge ordered the child will be adopted, and sent to live in the US. And if a controversial new law called β€œThe Cinderella Law” is passed, parents will be subject to the governmental regulation of love and emotion, and if found lacking, parents could be criminally charged with abuse and face up to 10 years in prison; and their children would likely become wards of the state.

Good Evening Little Men,

Hope my Champs are doing well and that you both have had a nice Sunday πŸ™‚

I can’t believe how hot it was in Dubai today compared to the nice cool 19 degrees now when I got home , I bumped into some friends on the flight this afternoon which I have not seen for years ….long story …part of my history from when I first moved to Dubai in 2005.

I think it is now also official that I am full of man flu , runny nose like a tap , lol , my chest seems a little better so will have to see what it is like tonight I guess.

Really looking forward to sleep in my own bed tonight , I see Ouma has come and sorted it all out and got the bedding washed and pressed as you both know I do not sleep in a bed or on sheets that are not pressed , OCD , yes , yes I know πŸ™‚

Have a busy day ahead tomorrow I think, setting up my meetings for the rest of the week and also have to close my month end accounts and reports.

So Champs I hope you both will have a fantastic week full of learning , lots of giggles and that you are safe !

I think I am off to bed after my shower now , so I will see you both shortly under our big old green tree in dreamland , looking forward to some nice warm African winter dream bear cuddles ….

Night , night Little Men ! Dream big as that’s what life is all about πŸ™‚

Love you both lots and lots and miss you much bigger lots more !

Love you Little Men ….always ….

Good Evening Little Men!

I hope my Champs are doing well and that you both had a fantastic Saturday πŸ™‚

I have just finished packing , so just need to shower in a hour or so before heading to the airport. Not feeling great truth be told , got up this morning with something not so right with my chest , they changed my chest medication last month but I only started using the new inhalers three days ago so not sure if they are not working or if they are a lower dosage but am really struggling to breath , been hitting the Ventolin the whole day but it’s not helping , I will try and get some of my normal stuff in the morning in Dubai and see how it goes….I hate this feeling of not being able to breath or move around without being exhausted……

Over and above not being on top of my game today , we had a good last day here , as I said the other day , I am really proud of the guys here they have done a great job the past 2 months and have looked after me very well , pretty sure they will have a good Ramadan also , I think it starts in Dubai tomorrow thus it will start here on Monday I think , as it is normally one day after Dubai , thinking about it ,it might then have started in the UK already.

So as the saying goes, Ramadan Kareem to all our friends from over the world that celebrate this month πŸ™‚

I hope you monkeys are having a good weekend and perhaps even some sunshine that in turn might allow you some nice fun outside playtime …hope you muppets are making the most of the Summer as the winter in the UK is not so great in my opinion.

Well Champs as I am not getting any sleep tonight I think , I might only see you both very early morning under our big old green tree in dreamland , don’t worry if I am late , go play and have some great big dream adventures and I promise I will see you both for some dream cuddles and smiles before you wake πŸ™‚

Night , night Little Men ……. Happy dreams full of big adventures …..

Love you both more than all the new runways in dxb and miss you more than all the A380’s they have…..

Love you Champs …..always ….
