Eid Mubarak my dear readers. May the day be full of festive fun and joy. Or, if you're in a non-Muslim country it will probably pass you by, but there we are.
In case you're wondering what we're up to, the Sand Warlock is at work (no time off in the twilight world of the airport) and I will be at home chewing my nails, scratching my head and working half-heartedly until he gets home.
Then we're off to dinner at the dwelling of an ex-pat with an assortment of Dutch, Egyptian, English and Scottish people. That sounds like a joke, doesn't it?
In the mean-time, I just had to share some expert advice and a possible winner of headline of the month from the ever marvellous Gulf News.
That advice is: eat less food
What a truly groundbreaking and though provoking piece of advice, and published on a day associated with feasting after a period of fasting and abstinence throughout the Muslim world. Until this day, it had genuinely not occurred to me that if I ate fewer pies, I would be healthier. Gulf News, I salute you for your foresight.
