The Weekly Story ~ wk 47

Hello my lovelies.... It was lovely to have a long weekend.. *sigh*... But its gone now... and just the little memories remain... *smiles*

A last minute, pack up and camping trip to Fujeirah... meant we watched the sunset, we slept under the stars, with the sounds of the waves, and then watched the sunrise... Its still very very hot here in Dubai... and is definitely not the time for camping... But we braved it... and to our luck the temperatures dropped by evening time... *smiles*.. There is lots to this story... but all that some other time...

Returning home on Wednesday meant.... we got half the beach home... there was lots and lots of cleaning.. clearing and sorting.. *sigh*.. never ends... does it??

But the good part... in preparation of the festive season... I put out my lamps... which I stored for nearly a year, and think only used for Diwali & Christmas. They've now found a permanent home!!

Can you see this lovely wooden piece over the door.. I picked this up from the Bombay Store.... I think three years ago!! But didn't know where to put it!! I'm not convinced I've found the right place... but atleast its not in storage any more!! Do you think it looks good??
