This is quite old, but I don’t know how many of you have seen these pictures of “grown men” – some with wives and children – putting their lives at risk unnecessarily…men! Humph!

Hi Everyone

How are you all doing? Hope you had a lovely weekend…mine was spent cleaning house, as hubby and I got back home late on Thursday.

Dubai was F.U.N…there was lots to do; places to visit and food to eat…plus, I certainly enjoyed not having to cook or clean house for a while…I could go on talking (or rather typing), but I’ll just let the pictures do so on my behalf…enjoy the sights of Dubai as brought to you by moi…oh and by hubby too, cos he did most of the picture taking (except for the blurred pix which are mine…lol)…

Desert Safari (this is a must have experience by the way, whenever you are in Dubai)…

Yeah! 5 whole days! I had 5 whole days of relaxed fun, starting Saturday, up until yesterday, Wednesday…How? Well, hubby took the first three days of the week off from work, and we had a mini-blast…

Saturday started with hubby bringing me breakfast in bed…later in the day, we went to a family park not too far from home, and strolled hand-in-hand as we admired the greenery, the water and the folks fishing, the different kinds of birds and people feeding them, the children having serious fun and being lovingly watched over by their parents and guardians, dogs and their trainers doing incredible routines, boys of all ages on their skates and bikes doing all sorts of acrobatic displays and stunts…It really was beautiful…a few sights below…

Sunday service was amazing…we had the incredible Terry Law come minister to us @ Elim, on the subject of HOPE, and it was truly awesome to hear from him and watch his DVD, and see the marvelous things that God is doing through his ministry in places that he describes as “the closed countries of the world” i.e. countries that are hostile and/or resistant to christians and christianity…just google up his name and you’d be amazed at the information you uncover…Sunday dinner was a lovely Nandos take-out…

Monday; we stayed indoors all day…hubby did the garden, while I did some cooking, after which, we just had fun by ourselves, playing games and watching movies (Nigerian home videos, if you know me well…lol)…

On Tuesday, hubby got some good, well deserved hours of sleep, while I ransacked the w.w.w. for new blogs, and happily stalked the older, more familiar ones…Tuesday evening was “Much More”, the mid-week service @ my Church, and we heard more on HOPE…

On Wednesday, hubby and I headed out to the shopping mall…House of Fraser (HOF) and Debenhams were offering a massive 50% off SALE, and we wanted to check them out…4 hours later, and with bags from Hawes & Curtis @ HOF, H&M, Dorothy Perkins, and New Look, hubby and I were exhausted and headed home…I ended up with a mild headache and decided to sleep it off, waking up hours later, having missed my drama rehearsals (sorry Marie)…

Hubby went back to work today and I had time to do some house cleaning…this evening, a Mary Kay consultant came to my home to give a friend and I a presentation, which included beauty and skin care tips, as well as practical use/feel of the products, i.e. we got to try out a range of products from foundation and powder, to lip mask and balm, lip liner and gloss, mascara, the microdermabrasion set, satin hands,etc…and as the hostess for the day, I got to pick a free gift…I chose a Mary Kay lengthening mascara…Overall, it was a fun time and I really learnt a lot from the opportunity, even though I felt that most of the products were rather expensive (although thankfully, you are at liberty to NOT purchase any product)…I stumbled upon the offer @ this blog, which the Consultant (Ola or Mrs Abbey) told me today, is her daughter’s…She does cover the whole of the UK, so if you’d love some pampering, why not give her a call?

On a final note, I came across this very deep question on FaceBook, and as usual, I thought to put it to you and know what you think/make of it…

If your life was a publicly quoted Company, would you buy shares in it?

Enjoy!

Hi everyone. Hope you had a great bank holiday/May day weekend (not applicable to all, I’m aware)…

Well, hubby and I went to see the much talked about Clifton Suspension Bridge yesterday, and as much as it’s a real beauty to behold during the day, I understand it’s even more beautiful at night, when the lights are turned on…

A brief history;

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is the symbol of the city of Bristol, and is regarded as one of the world’s greatest bridges…the winning design was submitted in 1830 by 24 year old Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who died aged 53 inĀ  1859…the bridge was however completed and opened in 1864…

Now, on to what you’ve been waiting for; the pictures!

The Bridge…

Thankfully, neither hubby nor myself has a phobia for heights, as the bridge is indeed very high (we could not ascertain the height) above the ground/water…

Oh, by the way, hubby has opened (note, not started…lol) his blog at last…it’s called DiEmptySeries…please go over there and show him some love (by reading and commenting of course!)…

For more info about the Clifton Suspension Bridge, or to plan a visit, you can go to their website;

http://www.clifton-suspension-bridge.org.uk/index.php

You can also find more pictures (especially those taken at night, when the bridge is well lit) online.

PS: Have you seen my pictures of the Roman Bath? No? (where were you? lol)…Check them out HERE!

Have a very nice day…

Happy Easter all…hope you’ve been having wonderful easter breaks…I sure have…

Hubby and I have a guest over this weekend…a long time friend of hubby’s, from Glasgow (NY)…we decided to give him a little tour of Bristol and it’s surrounding areas (ok, Bath, to be specific)…on friday, we went to the Bristol Ice Rink…my first time there if I might add…had fun making a “f..l” of myself…I landed flat on my butt (only 1ce, I’m proud to say)…and was helped/coached by a really nice gentle man…Hubby and I are definitely going back for some more ice skating experience soon…

We also took NY to see the relatively new Bristol Cabot Circus…the newest and grandest (don’t quote me) shopping mall in the UK, as well as the John Wesley Chapel…unfortunately though, the Chapel was closed on Friday, so NY had to make do with pictures taken at the gate…

Today, we headed to the beautiful Roman Baths to see what it had to offer, and we were most certainly not disappointed…

Below, I give to you the sights (but not sounds…) of Bath, so you can pictorially voyage to Bath as well…enjoy!
