CONTROL FREAK

First of all, I want to send my thoughts and prayers to the family and friends who lost their loved ones on flight MH17. Secondly, I pray for an end to the attacks in Gaza.
What is happening in the world?!

We had a weekend of organisation in the house, while CNN kept us updated in the Malaysian air flight shot down. It was def not a mutual decision to start this project,
but I clearly felt a need.

I spent 8 hours at IKEA and Dragon Mart here in Dubai, after cleaning the house for 24 hours, including looking for one of the cats who went missing.
But the story ended well, early morning, we saw Gilbert walking cross the garden, happy to found her way back home. Not to mention how happy I was.
And Paul, who was most probably expecting me to take out a divorce because of Gilbert’s disappearance.

Weekend started with talking this little one to the vet to start the vaccinations.

My husband its strawberries with white bread and sugar – what is that for kind of mix?! 

IMG_1439IMG_1440I’m such a good house wife. Sometimes. Occasionally.

Yes, we ordered help with putting the IKEA stuff together… 

ZOOLANDER

Our new family member is a real show off. Just look at him, he loves the attention he gets. <3 Can´t blame him. He must think he died and gone to heaven. He gets free flow of food and water, an AC home, comfy bed…

An old fling which I finally managed to bring home to my closet.

Last but not least, proud of our breeds, and their success at home. I still remember their mum, Nellie. My first horse. Sounds weird, since my parents had a horse farm, with an amount of 30+ horses in total, but she was my first horse, that I broke in, and made future plans with. Later on, I competed with the father of the below horses. Nice to see they are doing well, these lovely, charming, goofy, a bit crazy but oh-so beautiful horses. <3

Four became five

I have been feeding some stray kittens for a few months now. They lost their mother when they were about 4-5 weeks, and since then, they have been raised by the other stray cats. Every time I’ve come to feed them, this one white kitten has always jumped up on my lap.

making an appointment …20140711-231525-83725195.jpg20140711-231525-83725440.jpgAnd off to the vet we went.20140711-230950-83390524.jpgAll tests negative, and we brought him home. ❤️ 20140711-231114-83474554.jpg20140711-231114-83474060.jpg20140711-231114-83474805.jpgWe named him Frankie, after the coach from Ajax, Frank de Boer… (I named Gilbert so I had to give this one away to Paul…)20140711-231115-83475622.jpg20140711-231117-83477873.jpgFrankie is doing well, sleeping a lot. I can´t stop thinking of his siblings, still out there, without a home… If anyone is up for adopting, let me know.

 

 

WEEKEND GETAWAY

We went for a weekend getaway to explore a little bit more of the U.A.E, than just Dubai. Targeted destination, Ras al Khaimah. We had arranged a beach villa for two nights.
It was so nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean.
We took it very easy, slept in and ordered room service.
Now back at home and it has not been a single minute of rest since.
Saw the image below on FB and straight away took hubby and dog with me to the supermarket to purchase food for them.
We are now a few people, working on logistics on getting them to a vet. The place is 1,5 hour away, otherwise I would have taken them myself, straight away. But there are people closer to the place than I am. However, I´m thinking of taking on one of the stray kittens, from here, which I am feeding. One of them is really keen on me. I´m just worried about what Gilbert will say.
She doesn´t like other cats. She doesn´t like anyone actually.
