My first post from Dubai

* my old header  photo, a new one will be made soon *
Hello on this warm Sunday morning from Dubai!
Sunday, as in our ‘Monday’, since this is the first working day of the week here.
So, it has been a while….
Where to begin?
What shall I share here on my blog, the one I’ve missed writing on,
the place where I have met so many great  people. 
I even had the pleasure of drinking coffee with a new blog friend, right here in Dubai.
I ‘ll tell you, the blogging world is great and I will step it up to continue this journey here in Blog Land,
simply because I really enjoy being here and the interaction it brings me with great people!
If you are reading this, you are one of them in my book!
Many things happened these last couple of months.
Our surprise ‘I do’ during our goodbye diner in Amsterdam.
(Honestly, people still talk about this, it was great and I will come back on this…)

Our super quick move from Switzerland to Dubai, with all the usual difficulties.
(Think, finding schools while they are all completely full…)
The many things I want to share since arriving here…
(Boy, this is a different place indeed but so far I really enjoy being here…)
Our upcoming wedding in December…
(Thank goodness we hired a great wedding planner to help us, since it’s going to be in Amsterdam…)

The whole fresh start of decorating a new and much bigger apartment…
 (probably will ask you for some advice on this one, to be continued…)
Yes, where to begin?
I will chop things up in pieces, but first, something exciting is happening today…
The arrival of our container from Switzerland!
Let the unpacking begin!
Thanks for reading along and for all your sweet comments!

    Hi Maureen. Good to see you here today, and I am really pleased that you are liking Dubai. As you say, it must be SO different from what you are used to! How lovely to actually meet up with a bloggy friend for coffee. I would love to be able to meet up with some of my bloggy friends. That’s great that your container has arrived – now you can really make it start to feel like home. Look forward to hearing more stories from you when you are ready. Hugs.

    Hey there, Maureen! Have fun unpacking. It’ll be like Christmas, seeing all your stuff again and using it in a new space, in a new way. Hot as heck here — so I know you are having the same sort of weather we are. Work has been crazy busy. Hope the girls are settled in school. My boys were actually ready to go back. Just gotta get Yusef through this last year. :) Take care! Hugs, Tammy

    Dearest Maureen,
    Welcome back and happy unpacking. We know the feeling, it is like Christmas time for having all your favorite things back into your own hands. Now real life can start shaping up again. You will get there; don’t worry – be happy! After all, when you all are nicely settled in and your children also adjusted again at school, you have your BIG day in Amsterdam. Such a great mile stone for looking forward to and for being once again together with loved ones.
    Hugs from another immigrant,

    PS Did you meet with Angela?

    Some parents share their children’ ages and pictures online. The photos are adorable, but they are also lures for predators. If you decide you’d like to offer more individual information, including photos, on your profile, I suggest obtaining another deal with like I did, or concealing your individual info.

    The best component about these get virtual sms number methods? Theyre inexpensive and easy-to-use. Company telephone methods are costly and dont provide you with the performance you require. As a photographer on the go, you need an inexpensive solution that doesn’t require tons of function to established up. You just want to get phone calls and go!

    Can they personalize a system to suit your needs? Not all businesses are the same. Your digital phone service needs might vary somewhat, or even significantly, from the provider’s standard offerings. If that is the case, ask what they can do to accommodate your particular needs.

    Also, if you do a little study/reading, you can established it up to exactly where every phone jack in your house is wired for VOIP. It’s little much more than plugging the output of your VOIP modem into the wall jack you currently have. Extremely small much more.

    Never, at any time, allow anybody put you on silent maintain. If your VoIP services doesn’t hear some thing on that line for several minutes (how many seems to differ), it might simply disconnect you, apparently on the theory your phone is really off the hook.

    Why is this so cool? First of all, a VoIP telephone service could save you money every month by using the location of your land line. Next, it could truly make your digital telephone system that much much more versatile if it can deliver a contact to any SIP-based VoIP phone service supplier. That’s why it’s so awesome.;u=46302
