Alternative selfcare

After what has been quite a stressful morning between multiple cat fights, yes Lily is on the rampage not just with Mumma Bear now, but Dusty too. She seems to have it in for her fluffy sisters from a different mister! Literally she went for Dusty and they were in a ball behind the settee, Dusty screaming and I couldn't get them apart. Dusty managed to get away leaving behind a wee and a little poop too. My little baby was soo scared, she hid in the en-suite for hours.  I had to keep shutting doors to keep them all separated as well as keeping a close eye on Lily until she settled down. She eventually took herself off to a the playroom and fell asleep in a pod bed.  With all that happening and websites majorly playing up as I was trying to book some flights to go back to Riyadh , as well as trying to book a PCR test, my brain was truly frazzled and I needed to de-stress. Which got me to thinking about self care and needing to take a bit of time out. I'm sure you all can relate

The gist of the reason is that my husband was offered a fantastic position out there and to be honest after trying out semi-retirement and with the whole pandemic thing where we've (all) been extremely restricted we were itching for another adventure. We also never realised how much we missed the Middle East.  Previously we had five years out in the UAE, living in Abu D
