Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?


Yesterday LPV and his wee bud S went to see Elmo makes music at the Madinat theatre Dubai. I really love the theatre and LPV is begining to aswell, the madinat theatre has a cosy homely feel to it too, so you can lose yourself in its surroundings, it’s almost like being a theatre at home. Except when you come out your face melts off!!

The show was fantastic, colourful, engaging, fast paced, with all your favourite characters from the show. Bert and Ernie opened the show, the Count, (ah ah ah) and Grover (my personal favourite)  Oscar the grouch aka expat daddy 😉 . And definitely not forgetting ELMO!!


8 ah ah aha ah

8 ah ah aha ah




I felt like I have been catapulted back to my childhood watching sesame street on my school holiday, sat on the carpet with a chocolate biccy!! I actually think I enjoyed more than LPV.  If he had been a few years older I would have got told to be quiet as I was embarrassing him.

The show was quite interactive so I felt a bit bad as the audience  I felt, half asleep at times, it was like they needed a rocket up there arses to clap or to acknowledge the effort that had gone in to this show. However sometimes that’s quite typical of Dubai residents.

The shows theme was about music and how we can make music anytime with whatever tools we have around like your voice, feet, banging a saucepan *although I don’t think I will be encouraging the saucepan thing*. LPV is at a great age where he really soaks up information that’s around him, so I can expect a “I’m making music” response  when I tell him to do anything this week.

At 250dhs per ticket, so about 50 pounds was ok, I do think children should have paid less but  hey ho. It was worth the cash, the one thing I thought they could do without was the intermission, LPV and S we’re completely checked out after that and pretty much had a whole ant farm in their pants and wouldn’t sit still. Meeting Grover after was awesome although LPV point-blank refused to go near him and hid behind a pop up banner!

Lovely afternoon thought so here are some photos to share with you all2014-10-03 14.11.06 2014-10-03 14.27.22 2014-10-03 14.30.08 2014-10-03 14.36.31 2014-10-03 14.37.38 2014-10-03 15.16.59 2014-10-03 15.29.22 2014-10-03 15.36.29 2014-10-03 14.14.28 2014-10-03 14.32.35 2014-10-03 15.16.55



Too Politically correct

So we’ve kind of moved on from Little Einsteins *gets down on knees and thanks the lord* to non other than Thomas The Tank engine. However he’s not called Thomas the Tank engine anymore, its Thomas the train or it Thomas and his friends *said in sarcastic tone*

Why couldn’t he stay “tank Engine” what in the hell was wrong with that name?? He was a legend, a constitution, around from  my very late childhood seen my nephew and niece through their pre school days and no harm was cause to us from him being called Tank Engine.

He’s gone world-wide now  and fair play to him, we’re proud of you Thomas but the writers have gone over board completely with the politically correctness!! The Island of Sodor No longer celebrates Christmas with a lovely tree, they celebrate the “Winter holiday season” what a load of Farking crap!!! No one with common sense who lives anywhere is the world is offended by the word Christmas just like No one with common sense who lives in the real world is offended but the words Diwali or Eid, those of us that live in the real world embrace the fact there are now more excuses to celebrate and get presents. It’s just a small group of individual that are narrow-minded and then the small group of individuals who could be bothered to get proper jobs so they say they fight for equality and human rights and all they do is sleep in tents outside St Paul’s.

The Fat Controller or the F**king troller as my nephew used to call him is still fat but to even things out, there is now a Thin Controller, ridiculous!!!! The fat controller is fat of his own doing and having a thin controller is probably making him feel worse about himself, I bet you a 100Euro that when they have they have their coffee break together, he gives it “oh I’m happy with the way I am” then secretly counts how many weight watchers points he just ate!!

The new female Engines are a farking disaster they’re bitchy and Expatdaddy reckons they crash in every episode, whats the point!And why haven’t they made a disabled engine if they’re going to be politically correct.  Ok I admit the songs about working together and being nice to each other are good, but we teach our children that everyday why can’t we just see the programme for what it really is, trains chuffing around on tracks, end of!! Why does there have to be a hidden agenda a hidden meaning. Why can’t we just leave things alone! It seems sometimes we are so worried and upset about pleasing everyone that we lose sight of whats important, as children don’t care about colour, sex, culture they play together, laugh together and that’s life to them regardless, they could teach us a thing or two!!!

In the “red light” garden

So in our house there’s a certain wee man that loves “In the night garden”. He sings, he dances, he try’s to say “Ninky nonk” it’s cute.
Now I don’t know whether Amsterdam is rubbing off on me. I’m just watching way too much cbeebies I need to leave the house more but I’m starting to see how “dirty” this particular programme is .
Iggle Piggle & Upsydaisy,
I’d put money on it they’ve already joined the mile high club in the Pinky ponk. Iggle Piggle is ALWAYS looking at Upsydaisy’s ass. They need to get a room and whenever they go off into the garden the”Tittyfirs” always come out!

Tombliboo’s, threesome!!!! And they’re always taking their pants off.
The Wottingers/Ponkupines What’s going on in those houses???

I feel a wee bit sorry for him he’s obviously overweight and needs the wheely thing to help him walk, he also has a wee bit of OCD with the cleaning thing. However, is he into kinky stuff? he sleeps with rocks for goodness sake, and his poor head shaped like a sex toy!!

I think we should have a cbeebies free day tomorrow or maybe I should up my crazy pills??
Do you concur??
