My husband and I have lived in Dubai for 7 years – we came with a 3 year plan like everyone else!
We’ve had our 3 children here, our 3 year old loves anything physical, he’s like a happy Tasmanian devil! And our 8 month twin girlies are anything but the same. The older one (by 11 minutes) is already the bolshie one – sees something, wants it, gets it!! And the younger one is a little lady, full of elegance, she’s even tidy when she eats!
To add to the mix, we have a little Boston terrier pup, Reggie who is our 4th child (not necessarily in the endearing sense, he’s a loony and is as much, if not more work than the little humans!)
WHERE IS HOME?
Home-home is Birmingham
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?
Air hostess, to travel the world but dreams were dashed when I stopped growing past 5ft!! But I’ve always wanted to be in the aviation industry.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
Currently on a year’s maternity leave but I’ll be returning back to work in the new year. I run a section called Aeronautical Information Services at the airport.
In a nutshell we offer services to airlines, pilots and all those involved in flight planning and navigation in the UAE and beyond.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ACTIVITY TO DO WITH YOUR CHILDREN?
I love reading to them and turning a book into magical play, favourite book to do this with is “paper dolls”
HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR WEEKENDS?
Usually in our pool, else it’s a juggle out with all 3!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?
IF YOU COULD EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Chicken katsu curry
WHO’S YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?
Zac Efron especially with the beard!
WHICH DESTINATION IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST TO VISIT?
Too many, without the kids I’d love to go to Mardi Gras in New Orleans or kids Bora Bora – can you imagine that horrendous journey with kids?!
WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
Real housewives of New York – there’s nothing like watching a good fight between Housewives or watching a reunion show.
IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Flying would be really convenient to avoid the Dubai traffic jams.
