Weekly Ponderings 24

Friday, 26 June 2015

This week I was excited about...


My cousin David coming to town! He was on a stopover en-route home from Nairobi, so he was in Doha for less than 24 hours, but it was lovely to see him for a brief catch-up over a late night cuppa and breakfast the next morning.

This week I was reminded...


Just how different this country feels when it's Ramadan! During the day it's eerily quiet, right up until about 5.30pm when the roads suddenly fill with cars as everybody rushes to get home or to the nearest Ramadan tent to break their fast. From thereon out, the whole of Doha is full of life until long after my bed time. Every morning when I wake up and head out onto my balcony with a cup of tea, I'm always surprised at how the marina has emptied to become quiet and still once again while I've been asleep.



This week I appreciated...


Some serious wedmin time.

A couple of Suhoor feasts (look out for a post at the end of the week on this!).





Dinner with three awesome friends in a new favourite restaurant. All three are leaving soon for new shores and I will be incredibly sad to see them go!

Quote of the week...




So I got through a whole post with only one mention of anything wedding-related...are you proud?! I really am sorry for my current obsession which is pretty apparent on the blog and across all of my social media at the moment. I just can't seem to contain it!! Do you have any exciting weddings coming up that you're attending this summer? Or are you getting married yourself? I'd love to hear from you if you are! 

Happy Friday! I hope you all have a wonderfully sunshiny weekend :-)

  4. Isn't ramadan totally crazy when it's time to break the fast; it's totally mental!
    I love it when a family member drops in for a day or so for a visit and a cuddle, you look so much alike

    1. It's crazy but I love it! I'm not sure Dave will take that as a compliment but I will pass it on all the same! It was lovely to see him :-)
