Broadening our minds

14 Feb

I said (again), ‘Well that seems very strange to me,’ to which youngest boy replied, ‘That’s because you’re not thinking like an Abu Dhabi person, Mum’.

PS This evening, I went to my first aerobics class in at least ten years…do they not do the grapevine any more? What’s happened to the grapevine? I know the grapevine, but ‘the revolving door’ I know not.

    If it makes you feel any better, we still do the grapevine in Germany – with feeling.

    I used to grapevine right into the mirror.

    Hi! I got here via blackbird and love your blog already, being a mama in India with children. (From Canada, lived in California for the last ten years…)

    Thinking like an India person is something I have to try to do everyday. And sometimes I just give up and agree to not understand 🙂

    as long as the grapevine is still out there somewhere, then I’m happy – and hopefully I find it again. Sorry, bb, but I laughed at that image.

    Welcome, Rae. Good to meet you. I’d offer you a glass of wine, but we don’t have our alcohol licence yet. Orange juice?

    I *loved* the Grapevine, but when I last went to an aerobics class (circa 1999), they were doing a spinning/hopping move called ‘Pizza Man’. It wasn’t pretty.

    Pizza Man! Bloody hell…who’ve they got writing these moves?

    Perhaps the grapevine is yet to come to Abu Dhabi…
