I’m Emma, and I’m 34 years old, originally from Birmingham in the UK and have been in Dubai for 5 years now. I’m a proud wife and mummy to our little sassy 3-year-old, Daisy (who I am told gets her attitude from me, however I refuse to believe it!) I’ve worked in nurseries ever since I was old enough to have to job in the UK… and now worked my way up to nursery Director at Willow Nursery in the Marina. Daisy comes with me to nursery and it really is our second home, (or maybe it’s our first, I think we spend more time there actually!) I also have a little fur baby, our doggy Molly, so between full time work, a husband that works away and my daughter and dog… I think I have a very busy life 🙂 but wouldn’t change anything for the world!
WHERE IS HOME?
Birmingham in UK – the nice part, ha!
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?
An air hostess or a dog trainer… I would still love to work with dogs, but I think I’d just sit and cuddle them all day!
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I work as Nursery Director of Willow Nursery in the Marina, but of course I’m firstly a mummy, then a cook, and a cleaner, ha-ha!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ACTIVITY TO DO WITH YOUR CHILDREN?
Swimming pool and beach 100% while in Dubai!! Or when were in the UK we enjoy muddy walks in the woods as a family. We love getting our wellies and waterproof jackets on!
HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR WEEKENDS?
Family time is what our weekends are about. So, we either spend time at the beach or the pool… but we also love going out to restaurants – we’re all foodies!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?
If I’m sat on my own I love ‘how to loose a guy in 10 days’… if I’m say with my husband (as he will not watch chickflicks) it is ‘Taken’ and if I’m sat with my daughter it has to be ‘frozen 2’
IF YOU COULD EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Chinese… but it must be the ones from the UK!
WHO’S YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?
David Beckham. Sorry, hubby… but he is very aware he’s my number 2!
WHICH DESTINATION IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST TO VISIT?
Lapland must be on there… as even as a kid I’ve wanted to meet the real Santa.
WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
Boy band songs! Take That, Backstreet Boys, Westlife… all of them. They are certainly made for driving and singing as loud as possible.
IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Time travel… I don’t know where I would go, but I always thought it would be fun.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LIVING IN DUBAI?
The community we all have.
