Well, its been a busy 24hrs! I have had another quote for curtains and another 2 quotes for landscaping and I am sitting here at 10pm to wait for my kitchen dining table and chairs to be delivered. Deliveries here in the UAE run very late!! I am actually tired and want to go to bed, but I am waiting for yet another man in a truck! lol.

But the biggest and bestest news is that I have the internet and I am now "connected". Today was a big day because I was able to Skype home and talk + see the kids and Niki and I had a good long chat about pretty much everything. It was good to relax and chat because the only conversations have either been from my office - where work rudely interrupts - or by traditional phone and I hate to see the phone bill at home this month!

But I am now very happy... and soon I will have a dining table to sit at and I am starting to feel that this is a bit like a home now.

The other thing is that I have been watching a bit of the local Pay TV, which is called ShowTime and its ok, but there is a lot of rubbish on it... but most disappointing is that all 4 sports channels are pre-occupied with Premier League Soccer. Now I like soccer and I went to a Chelsea game once in London, but sometimes I would like a bit of variety. Unfortunately there is no NRL on TV here, but I was watching some English Super League tonight... which is pretty ordinary. Was watching Catalans vs Wigan and saw Jason Ryles, Greg Bird, Amos Roberts, Clint Greenshields and a few other Aussies running around in some paddock in Perpignon, France. I flicked it over to Man City vs Fulham if I have to be honest.

But, the net is on! I will now be able to post a few more pictures and am now able to Skype which is a godsend.

Now where's that truck.....????

{Post Script} - The truck has arrived at 10:15pm and they have to put the dining setting together! I thought it would be just offloaded fully built, so I have two guys with drills going crazy in the kitchen dining... only in Dubai!

you can stream 2gb and listen to the continous call team on the weekends if you need some NRL fix.


or I could give you a run down of what happens. meat head A ran at meat head B, who tackles him... rinse repeat.

of course there's lots of off field shenanigans going on too.. drinking raping and falling over.
