I went on line and logged on the Dubai ladies go to for anything site - Expat Women - Dubai .
House Guest Extraordinaire keeping out of the way of the efficient movers. In the bath tub.... as you do......
We did have a bit of a drama before we moved. I went down to the building lobby security to let them know that we would be moving and that they should put up those things that protect the sides of elevators from people moving big stuff. The security man said “NO” . Apparently we cannot leave the building without an NOC ( No Objection Certificate) from the developers of the Palm. W.T.F. I have absolutely no relationship with bloody Nakheel so why do I need their permission to leave the building? Apparently this is them looking out for the interests of the owners. Well that was news to the owner. What followed was a frenzied rush of me gadding about trying to find out what was required to get this N.O.C. Mixed messages are what I got. Now I know that when The Little Man say “no” you know that he will not move until The Big Man says he can, so I could not possibly move without something from Management to The Worker Ant telling him I could leave the building. Many emails later and Bryan making phone calls and still we had nothing. It took Bryan hunting down some man in an office and checking said man’s junk mail for us to finally get what we needed. Bryan needed a session of calming therapy after that. What he got was time to work out how his apple lap top worked with a bit of help from Frances -remember I mentioned the house guest extraordinaire?

Wish me luck unpacking.
