Thursday is the last day of the working week, and our regular play- date at home.  It’s an open house for our friends to visit.  It’s been too hot to play outside after 10am, so for the last few months its been indoor play.  Sometimes we do an activity like play dough or baking.  Here are some photos from last Thursday, “stepping stones” is what is being played, and the kids baked the most delicious scones for morning tea.

Dubai’s best kept secret?
