Home Sweet Home...Update

Everyday, our home looks more real. Its now taking shape and at this stage we're assuming we need 4 months to go until all is done and we can move in.

Construction is now at the gypsum stage, we now have ceilings :D

A garage door :D

We now need to figure out the exact amount of spotlights and downlights. Next comes the Aluminum for the windows...
Its amazing to see the progress of contruction. Can't wait to start painting, and cleaning, and arranging furniture!
Makes me grateful everyday. :D

What makes life worthwile...

Tea with Milk, and the floating smell of cardamom, in front of the TV, on a Tuesday morning.

SoulSearching …

Hey world,

It's been a hectic couple of months of my life but it's been great. I've reached a turning point in my life, got a great opportunity and took every inch of it, and here I am, in a new job, finalizing construction of my new home, and my son is now in school/nursery everyday! And I am thankful.

I'm grateful for everything that I have in my life, although my schedule is full to the brim, but my kids are happy and healthy and my life is in the direction I need it to be…

I've promised a few images of the house, I don't have a very good one on me now, but I promise to take better images soon, just to show the stages at which construction has reached. It's amazing to see the guys putting up the ceilings and drilling holes in the upstairs floors to make way for the wiring and the lights. The house looks more real now. I feel like going up to them and shaking their hands and to thank them every day!!!

Does anyone have any suggestions on whether we should install ceiling fans in the bedrooms? That's something we need to resolve and argue about it every single day. I'm not sure… People, you know what the weather is like in Bahrain, suggestions anyone? Maybe I should start a poll or something, vote for or against ceiling fans!

Check out our new door! I love it… it looks like it's made of wood but it's actually wrought iron! Isn't that lovely!!!

I went to Dubai last month and enjoyed 5 fabulous days in the city that never stops being the first and the fastest in eveything! It's amazing to see the pace at which this city is rising; I was flabbergasted at the huge skyscraping buildings in Bar Dubai, near Ibn Batuta Mall, they looked unreal! I thought they were cardboard signs or something, the snow city in the Mall of the Emirates was amazing, it reminded me of Lebanon's beautiful mountains, but not nearly as breathtaking. But I absolutely loved Dubai minus the ugly snaking queue waiting for a taxi!

That's it for now, I hope I can keep blogging, as much as circumstances permit!

Love and Peace to the world…
