I’ve started packing my stuff to go off to London, leaving in about 8 hours to Dubai, then from there fly off to London.
The past week has been a blast from the past. Caught up with quite a few friends who I haven’t seen in 6-7 years.
I went for coffee and to a few clubs in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi and it was just a continuos wave after wave of people who I used to know or goto school with. Then there was Dhabia’s wedding which had an insane amount of our old family friends. All good nights and all very surreal.
I unfortunately am no longer in the running for longest time away (Youssef Hayek now holds the title sitting firmly at over 7 years) I am extremely disappointed in myself and the people who encouraged me to come back, but life goes on.
Currently in the process of pruning through and clearing up all the stuff I packed before I left Abu Dhabi those 6 and a bit years ago. The memories that flood back just picking stuff up sometimes is pretty overwhelming.
So far I have found two real items that are definitely coming back with me.
No doubt there will be a lot more stuff that I will bring back but those are definitely in the bag to come back.
Right time to get back to sorting.
P.S. Spanky wanted me to say he is having a laugh and says Hi to all.
