The move and other things

Posted on May 12 2017
Felicitations. Well, you wont believe this but due to our move there has been little time for me to write a blog. There has been so much to do since arrival, both during the day and evening that this is the first occasion allowing time. And guess what? I am probably the worlds worst on a PC and having just spent an hour writing a blog I have just deleted it and god only knows where it is because I...

Moving out, moving on!

Hi Everyone. I start with an apology for missing out on my blog page but events have been so hectic 0ver the past weeks that I have had little time to spare. In fact they still are but I made a conscious decision today that I must site down and write and put to one side house searches and everything else that comes with moving from one country to another. Yes we are on the move, not by choice but...

Happy New Year to you all wherever you are. To borrow a few words from Irving Berlin – May your days be merry and bright. And may all your dreams come true. I wish you good luck, health and happiness and remember – keep reaching for the stars. See you in 2017 harry

Hi there. Trust good health abounds with you all. This is my last blog for the year 2016 and as I thought about a subject the realisation struck that in many ways this is the time of the year for children. It is of course for children of the Christian faith but the celebrations are catching on in the Muslim world, especially in Dubai where there are absolutely wonderful decorations in the malls and...

Special Days

White rabbits! Wonder if they have been kind for you through this month after my brief note on the first of November. My intention was to follow it up quickly but I got side tracked and need to write now before the month is out. Time is moving so fast these days. Not too long ago we here in the UAE celebrated the nations flag day and here we are with the weekend approaching when we celebrate the countries...

Winter in Autumn

Posted on Oct 17 2016
Hi there wherever you may be. In the hot and sunnthe y UAE perhaps or living the life in new York, Amsterdam or Brussels. The weather was a subject my young daughter and I discussed yesterday  morning on the way to school. Actually we had just stepped out of the building and were in the shade walking towards the car when my little one said ‘Its a little warmer today don’t you think.’...

On Vacation, of a kind.

Posted on Sep 11 2016
Hi There. Back again at last and apologies for being late with this blog but there were valid reasons. Vacation commenced early in July with a flight via Qatar to Beijing, China. Now if you have never travelled to Asia and are en-route on a one stop flight from Europe then I strongly recommend the stop be in Qatar. Not only is the airport vast, and I do mean vast, but it is brilliant. Signage is...

Brexit and the US.

Hi There. Well, the UK (and the world) seems to have heaved a big sigh of relief as Theresa and Phillip May walked into number 10 last Wednesday. But what do we actually know about her? She had been the longest serving Home Secretary in over 60 years and she has a reputation for attending meetings (especially local ones), unlike other politicians. Theresa was born in Eastbourne. She was the only daughter...

Rambling on.

Hi There. It’s that time of the month again and we have to come up with a subject. As evening falls and I sit at my laptop I’m racking my brain to think of one because at the moment I am at a loss for a subject. I could write about footie as the season in the UK is nearing an exciting end but not everyone is interested in the game. Cannes comes to mind as social media is full of it at...
