  1. Barbecue Ban in Abu Dhabi Parks?

    We usually go to Mushrif Palace Park (Opposite Umm Al Emarat) for BBQ and shisha but as we were leaving last week somebody told us that they will start fining people who BBQ in the parks and it's now only allowed in Yas. Has anyone else heard this?
  2. Does anyone know of any schools/nurseries that rent out their outdoor spaces at the weekend? I'm struggling to find a reasonably priced outdoor venue that allows parties on a Friday. Most places only allow childrens parties Sun - Weds!
  3. Our son is turning 2 in November. I'm looking for ideas of where to hold his party that are not going to break the bank. He goes to nursery but I don't know any of the children there so there will only be approx. 10 children and their parents. Any new ideas? (not orange wheels, little world etc)
  4. Questions to ask maid/nanny at interview

    Hi everyone I'm looking to replace my current nanny/maid due to her attitude/not taking care of the house the way I'd like. She is good with my son but I don't really feel comfortable with her in the house. She has also told many untruths and took a 3 month long vacation all within her first year. I am looking for some help re what questions to ask at interview this time to try and make sure we're getting the right person. Any tips?
  5. Lease to buy in AD

    Does anybody know of any agents/developers offering lease to buy options for apartments/villas in abu dhabi?
  6. Coconut Flour

    Has anyone ever seen coconut flour in UAE? I have looked in Lulu, Spinneys and Coop but not found it yet
  7. Temp Maid/Nanny

    Our nanny/maid went on vacation at the beginning of the month (after 10 months' service) and has let me know (when I enquired about flight time arrival so that I could collect her from the airport) that she won't be able to come back until end of April. Does anybody know where i might find a temporary nanny/maid that is not going to cost me 3000+ for 1 month. We don't need anyone for March as we'll be travelling. My son is 15 months old and goes to nursery 3 days a week until 2pm so it would not even be full time. Any ideas what we can do? TIA
  8. Tables and Chairs for Rental?

    Call 0559988143. I don't know the name of the company but we rented 40 chairs and a few tables from them recently and they delivered.
  9. Parenting with Passion

    Last time it was bring a spouse/friend for free - is that the same this time? Are you also offering the free consultation as well?
  10. Rent a Villa for 1 day?

    Hi All My son's first birthday is coming up and DH and I were hoping to host a bbq for him. We live in an apartment so can't really do it there. We were thinking of doing it in the park but there will be 40+ people. Does anybody know of a villa that we could rent just for the day so that we can bbq in the garden? That way, it will be more private but the children will still have somewhere to run around. Thanks :)
  11. Pediatric Dentist

    Can anyone recommend a good pediatric dentist in the city? Thanks

  13. Seeking Advice on the "British" Club membership

    I'm a club member. I asked around in the office to see if anyone was a member and asked them to sign. I don't mind signing if you don't find anyone
  14. Upper Lip Tie

    I suspect my 8 month old has an upper lip tie. Our breastfeeding journey has come to an end already but I\m wondering whether the lip tie needs to be checked out/corrected? Does anyone have any experience with this/any recommendations for who to see about it?
  15. Maid available for immediate start
