Friday afternoon

So I'm not doing much on a Friday afternoon(Muslim Sunday), Alex is sleeping after an all-nighter to Hydrabad and back and I've been reading all day. I'm reading a thriller that Alex's Mom left behind and its quite a good read. A bit too much on the romance side but its not too bad.
Anyway I'm supposed to make a lamb curry to take to dinner at our friends' tonight and at this moment I can't be bothered but I made quite a nice one last time so my mouth is watering when I think about it. Ok I better go and start if I put it off any longer I might leave it too late. Okey dokey...

Its the New Year after all.

We were with some lovely people last night for New Year's. We had a nice time with our friends here in Oman and had a good laugh. Unfortunately I wore a white top and at midnight while we're greeting everyone, one lady pumped into me and hello red wine on my white top... what a put-off. I sound like such a girl so I just folded the top on itself to hide the yucky stain. I looked like I had too many when I hadn't just yet! So let's see if the chlorox will get rid of the stain!
Anyway it was a garden party at the oil company compound and the setting was quite nice. The food was good too.
Another couple had invited us all (through friends) to their house earlier which overlooked the city and the ocean before we headed to the party. It was a spectacular view! We all ended up back there for a night cap as they called it... a few too many later we decided to call it a night and headed home. Alex had a good laugh with the Omani surgeon who kept cracking Irish jokes all night. He had done his internship in Britain and his wife was Scottish! It was a lovely mix of people and it was good fun indeed. Happy New Year.
