Off we go

Well today were off, it’s been a long time coming, today we move to Dubai…again. There have been tears, stress, tears, anger, tears…..d’you see where I’m going with this?

To be honest I’m apprehensive, I’m not actually sure if I know how to live a normal life anymore, I’m worried that I’m just simply not enough for my children anymore, they been surrounded by so many family and friends. I can’t wait to see my friends again…but are as excited to see me?……will LPV ever settle?

These last few months have been awful, trying to chin my head above water has been so hard, at the turn of the year I wanted to be off my meds. Now there seems no escaping the medication, I’m actually thinking I’m needing something stronger due to the anger I’ve felt over the last few months. Is it just me tho, would someone else have handled the situation better?

Anyway the stress won’t be over for a while, we have to live in a hotel suite for around a month, however the children have their own rooms and its got a kitchen etc. The main thing is that we’re together again, the last week in New York have reminded me that we’re stronger when we’re all together, I’m stronger!

Anyhow we’re off…we have 4 cases, 2 carry on’s, a stroller, 2 car seats, oh and 2 kids….it’s going to be a fun trip to the check in desk!

See you in the sandpit

    Oh, I hope it goes so so well for you. Change is never easy when you have little ones. You only want what’s best for them but it’s nerve wracking once you’ve made such a big decision. Can’t wait to hear how you’re settling back in x

    Oh dear! Not a nice situation but I guess you’re going where the work and the money is. Kids are more adaptable than mums so I’m sure they’ll be fine, having seen the “piano scene” in the last post. You won’t be the only person in the world whose life is made tolerable by drugs (my son-in-law has enormous problems) but I wish you well in the days ahead. How long were you in Dubai before? No worries- I guess I can find out if I root about a bit. Take care and good luck! 🙂

    Have a fantastic time and make sure you take time for yourself. Get back into your swimming. LPV will have a great time seeing his friends again. C?V will have fun making new friends. LPV might not remember his friends too much but in no time at all he will get back in the swing of things. At least you have some friends left to help you along the way. I can’t wait to read about your adventures in the sandpit. What you remember and what you forgot. We have had a great few days looking around and things and seeing what is new. Business Bay is open now!! MoE has changed with a Cheesecake Factory restaurant (you MUST try it) and Kempinksi changing the bottom floor at the end of Ski Dubai. I’m sure there is so much more. Have fun and keep us updated on what you find. Best of luck to you all. xx

    Certainly sounds full one, but I hope things work out in the end. Have a safe trip and give yourself credit, if they are your friends they will certainly want to see you :0)
