  1. Nora - our nanny, took care of my daughter since she was four months old. Now my daughter is 2 and goes to nursery in the morning and is with me from late afternoon until she goes to bed. Thus, the nanny's services are no longer needed. She is a Muslim Filipina, 54 years old, and has a previous experience in taking care of twins. She is the kind of person you can trust blindly. Her current salary is 2,200. If interested, please email me on
  2. I have dealt with Delight before. They were quick and professional. If someone can recommend a cleaning agency that also has a part-time babysitting service, I would really appreciate it
  3. They usually sell them at stationary shops but most of the people who have large flags hanging on their houses get them custom made at digital printing companies. I think it is very sweet of you to do that <3
  4. Although it's pretty sad, I am relieved that we're not the only family that is not having proper meal time. I was starting to think that there is something wrong with us as a family! I thought I was making "lunner" up, until I googled it and it turned out to be a legitimate slag! This makes me love the Lebanese dialect more than ever. I'm going to start using assruniye. It sounds adorable!
  5. Thank you feather. I'll check them out x
  6. I second that ..
  7. I have been in AD for almost 3 years and I still cannot find a go-to tailor that I can just drop by whenever I need a quick alteration!! A lot of people have been telling me that there are "a lot of tailors on airport road". But every time I stop by one, it turns out to be specialized in local dresses only. I ended up paying 50 dirhams per trouser, just to alter the hemline at Stitch in Time, WTC - which I thought was quite overpriced! Can someone please recommend a good tailor in the city?
  8. I am due in March and I'm a working mother How about a group on whatsapp for "instant" support when needed?
  9. Thank you very much. I'll keep her in mind
  10. I loved the Sheena show on Radio 1 .. I hope that comes back! I have been listening to my own music - connecting my iphone to the car's bluetooth and playing whatever I feel like listening to using the "Musi" app
  11. My sister was an English teacher for a few years and I have seen with my own eyes how teaching, although it's a very noble profession, can suck the life out of you! She was extremely tired because her job does not end when the school hours end. She had to go home and prepare for the next lesson and she was teaching more than one grade- thus, more than one lesson! There is no doubt that we all respect teachers for their hard work and they certainly deserve the breaks they get.
  12. I feel more comfortable when my DD is at the nursery because I'm assured that she is having fun with all the other kids and that there is more than one person looking after her. However, for the couple of weeks that the nursery is closed in between terms, I get very anxious because she is at home. Not that I do not trust her nanny, we really love her. But I feel like my daughter is doing nothing except picking up lazy habits like watching TV and playing with the iPad.
  13. I hope so
  14. I read once that working mothers raise more independent kids. But I wonder from what age does the independence begin!
  15. Will see if I can leave work for a couple of hours! If not, you ladies enjoy
