Swapping Lives

There’s no denying that returning to Abu Dhabi is a pleasure. The temperature is perfect at this time of year, just right for spending time outdoors and dining al fresco. Who wouldn’t want to be here? For me it’s coming home, too. Neil is here, of course, but also the life we’ve already made.
The transition from my “other life” in the UK was made easier by Alex accompanying me on the journey out and staying with us for a few days giving us the perfect excuse to become tourists again. This naturally meant rather a lot of over indulgence but, hey, what can you do?

The wrench had to come sooner or later, though. Saying goodbye to him at the airport was incredibly hard. Leaving other family members back in the UK, particularly with some issues still very much up in the air, piles on the worry and, yes, guilt. As always, everything comes with a price.
