Monday, January 01, 2007Well I hope you guys all had a nice and relatively sober Xmas. I certainly did, very quiet times at home spending it with my dear mother.
From what I remember I only went out once, to get last minute presents for Peter and Dad (esp. Peter as his presents are STILL underneath the Xmas tree in Dubai.) Went to King Street Cafe for lunch were I ordered the trio of salads. They were quite nice, but had far too much red onion in them. I also got myself some dukkah for snacks back in Dubai.
Xmas dinner was pork and ham overload. We had all our extended family (well, dad's anyway) over and my cousins brought their kids over too. It's very strange, because I hadn't seen these kids since they were babies. One of them's getting a bit chubby too. Hehe.
Mum was very badly behaved. She was sucking on Twisties, and trying to get a sip of champagne in when dad and I weren't looking. Funniest moment was when she snuck in some string beans and had about 5-6 dangling from her mouth like teeth. I went to get the camera but they were swiftly wiped away when I came back.
The flight back was awful though. Even though the loads were very light I started getting a head cold at the airport and spent about 10 hours with sore aching muscles. No sleep of course. Arrived back in Dubai and drugged myself up on Nurofen Cold & Flu tablets (on an empty stomach - v. bad idea) and woke up in time for my Rome flight feeling much better but full of mucous.
Oh, and for those of you who don't know what my brother looks like, here you go. He looks quite bored in this, which is a shame.
