    Girls Weekend

    2017 how so far has been a bit of a rollercoaster work wise. I have barely come up for breath and have worked every weekend. But I am a firm believer in having something on the horizon to look forward to, to get you through all the other stuff.

    That something, was a weekend with the girls in Amman. These wonderful three left husbands and kiddies at home to come to visit me for just 2 days!!! How amazing is that?And it was such a special time. Those rare moments when you you could be anywhere, but its the people you are with that matter. Just talking. For hours about anything and everything. And I loved showing them a little slice of my life here. It was just what I needed. And I am forever thankful to them for coming to visit.
