  • On expecting too much - from the school 2 weeks ago We had the bi-annual parent-teacher meetings last week. DS’s and DD’s were on largely the same days but – hallelujah – the school provided a form on which I could identify both children and the school would endeavour to coordinate the two parent’s evenings for me. Hurrah! Before you...
  • The best mother's day gift ever 2 weeks ago I’m not great at buying mother’s day gifts for my mum.

This year, though, the solution fell into my lap before I even realised mother’s day […]
  • Silent Sunday - Aspirational leggings 3 weeks ago
  • Cavalia - come, see horses 4 weeks ago My mum arrives tonight.

Only Dubai Desperate Housewife can make the most trivial yet topical subjects a joy to read with bundles of wit thrown in. I always look forward to her posts.

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!
