“I would say happy new year but it’s not happy; it’s exactly the same as last year except colder. ”


Goodbye 2013, hello 2014!

Only a few hours left of 2013 and as the title says, we don’t have too much to get excited about. Not so very long ago this beautiful country was posted as being the hottest place on the planet. The hottest place on earth! Hot, hot, hot! Well, I’ll be darned but that’s all about to change.’Come to Oman’, they said. ‘Live in the sunshine’, they cried. ‘Give your aching bones a treat’ they advised. Yeah, right…

Could've stayed at home for this

Could’ve stayed at home for this! Great sketches.

Tomorrow we are expecting a sandstorm – should be interesting – and some more of the wet stuff. This country has never seen so much rain since we got here.

Not to worry. We’ll stick it out and see what happens next. At the end of the day, not to mention the end of another year, we can only report that we are STILL having the time of our lives. There will be more adventures to excite and amuse and we’ll be reminded, often, of our fragility as we tempt fate and laugh in the face of danger. We have plans, glorious plans, from the mundane to the truly outrageous. What actually comes to fruition is anybody’s guess right now. For the time being we will wish each and every one of you a very Happy and Prosperous 2014, and leave you with this bedtime story…
