    Taxi question

    To my knowledge Uber are no longer operational in AD ...however I believe Careem are and they are similar to Uber. There is now a taxi app.... so you dont even have to call anymore!

    Sooo, how is everyone?Where is everyone ? hehe

    Im here.... well in the UK here. Ive been suffering from this awful virus going around, its taken 3 weeks to recover. I managed to get almost all my family together for Xmas including my little grandson....so that was wonderful. New Year both me and DH were too ill to stay awake til midnight, so the new year crept in without us...... The weather over here is cold grey and miserable. Its going to get colder in the next few days. Im really looking forward to next weekend, when we are going with a couple of friends to stay in a castle for a few days. Yes a real castle...its perched above a beautiful beach and is one of my favourite places in the UK....Im SO excited.... I get to be a princess at last hahaha. I wish you all the best for successful surgery and a speedy recovery DD

    October Coffee Morning

    I love the coffee mornings, have made some great friends as a result of them. I think there are a lot of ladies out there who often feel lonely and lost and an ADW meet is a great way to create a social network, which is SO important as an ex-pat.

    Recruitment agencies? Just a warning, be very very careful, there are a lot of scams out there....mostly involving you paying out and getting nothing back. You should NEVER have to pay a recruiter! Its far better to contact companies direct.

    New to Abu Dhabi - seeking advice of a few things

    Mother Goth, youre probably aware that a lot of people are away on vacation right now so you may not get much response until after Eid. Hope youre enjoying your new life. Its takes a while to settle in and get sorted but once you are, its wonderful!

    Annoying Supermarket Things......

    Oh DD - the discarding goods instead of returning them is a HUGE bugbear of mine. OK if youre suddenly in a rush and you need to go, or you just dont want them anymore...give them to the checkout operator who will have them returned to their correct place The packers tying knots in carrier bags - a small thing but they are so much harder to carry ...handles are for holding, not for tying!

    Ive always wondered why solar panels werent installed on every building - makes no sense to ignore such a valuable resource
