My S.I.N.ers Group, my friends, my family

The Sunset International Neighbours (S.I.N.ers) is a Group of ladies that was founded in 1990. We formed this group to solidify and help foster friendships among our members, some of whom have been coming now for 27 years.

We meet once a month at someone’s house for lunch, and every month it rotates to a new home. We all bring a plate of food to share, and sometimes a friend to add to the group. Over the years we have also watched children and grandchildren grow through their various visits, such a joy.

We don’t sell Avon, Tupperware, or any other product, except sometimes Real Estate (hehehe). We sit, eat, talk, exchange views, and make friends.

We had our Christmas party this last Monday. (Out meetings are always in a Monday, it had become tradition).

Some of us are very talented in the kitchen. I’ll let you decide if I am included in that group (hint hint I don’t cook).

Last Monday we had the pleasure of welcoming one of the S.I.N.ers’ youngest visitors, only a few weeks old, granddaughter to this month’s host. And of meeting two boys, now 17 and 15 year olds, that we have been in contact with since they were born.

We also had another member bring her tweenage granddaughter, who usually joins us around Christmas time and of course my daughter with her son, my adorable grandson.

These meetings are always a pleasure to attend, we catch up with one another, share good news and bad, and strengthen our friendships again, one bite at a time.

I hope you all find time this December to meet with your friends and loved ones, to talk over delicious food, and maintain those connections which are important to you.

Merry Christmas,

Alycee

Fantastic 20 hours stay in Dubai before going to Brazil

This is a transit Hotel in Dubai on Concourse A, situated on the 6th and 7th floor of the International Airport. I loved the ‘Welcome Mrs Barrett’ written on the TV screen.

The suite is fitted with a 5 star hotel greeting: coffee, tea, free water, fridge, robes, slippers , sewing kit, shampoos, conditioners, cream, bathing cap, shaving kit, soap etc, etc, etc.

Taking the elevator to level 3 you will find the departure level with all of the duty free shops, restaurants, currency exchange, etc, etc, etc.

It has a large king size bed -or larger than!- comfortable chairs, air conditioning and a most welcome large size room that is at least 5×4 meter square.

We had a super comfortable and welcoming stay before carrying on the next leg to Brazil.

I highly recommend it for anyone doing extensive travelling. The restful stay between legs makes all of the difference for me on these long journeys to visit family.

My daughter, son in law, grandson, and my husband recently crossed the oceans to Canada and back, and roughed it by carrying straight through to their destination, but I’ve done that before and this is DEFINITELY the way to go!

Why don’t you try it next time?

I have a baby in the house…

My house looks like a playground now that my daughter, her hubby and baby Kai have moved in with us.

I am a Real Estate Agent and now a happy grandmother with a 6 Month old grandson to show around whenever I want now that he is in the same house.

Who knows? Soon Kai will be helping me with my “home opens”? At least he will entertain the prospective buyers with lots of smiles!

Such a bundle of joy to see him grow each day and hear all is cute little sounds. I am so lucky and proud of my little grandson.

It won’t be long now and he will have me running after him, but I can’t wait!
