  • Who's ready for school? 8 hours ago Like most parents, I’m trying not to skip about the house singing as we look down the barrel of the new school term.

  • Dubai lift etiquette 5 days ago Always push both the UP and DOWN buttons to summon the lift. Sure, the first lift that stops may not be going in your direction but at least you can while away the minutes saying ‘Going up? Oh no. I want down’ to a lift full of (irritated) strangers. Always remember that there’s no such...
  • The Star Trek audition 2 weeks ago Apologies for going AWOL – life kind of attacked me all guns blazing. I’m still here, but something odd’s happened while I’ve been off the ether: the children have grown up. When I started this blog I had a baby, six months old, and a little girl, just turned four. I now have a six-year-old...
  • Who needs an address when you've been Makani'd? 7 months ago I may or may not have mentioned in the past how we don’t really have postal addresses in Dubai.

Love this blog always puts a smile on my face, even since moving back to the UK it reminds me of all the 'Dubainess' I miss so much. Keep it up!

A brilliant blog! She feels like a friend who just knows! Sometimes I feel she has a secret camera watching me! It is always so spot on and so well written.

Although I have never been to Dubai, she captures the essence of what it is to be an expat! But what I love best about her blog is her honest and witty humour about parenting! Absolutely bloody brilliant! She delivers everytime!
