I’m looking at the calendar in disbelief that it is March already, this year is flying by already!
Here is a round up of my top favourite things from the month of February. As always, these are my personal favourites and nothing has been sponsored or influenced. And because this is for grown ups, none of it includes baby stuff.
1- Ed Sheeran concert
The Ed Sheeran gig was certainly the biggest and most exciting thing to happen in Oman in a long time. Fresh off the plane from winning two Brit awards it was amazing to see such a big act in Oman.
This is one of my favourite things from February because of the fun atmosphere and a great night with friends – not even the mini hurricane could stop that party!
2- The book ‘Before I go to sleep’
This little treasure was found in the Dar Al Atta bookshop. The film, staring Nicole Kidman, was already on my list of things to watch so when I saw the book hiding at the back of the shelf I grabbed I straight away.
The story was intriguing and gripping – watch out for the twist near the end. I didn’t see that one coming! I’m looking forward to watching the film to see how Nicole Kidman brings the character to life.
(You can find the Dar Al Atta charity bookshop in the Qurum CCC where most books are just 1 rial)
3- ‘How to get away with murder’ – TV programme
This new dark and twisted show is created by the brilliant mind of Shonda Rhimes, who also created ‘Scandal’ and ‘Greys Anatomy’.
I started watching this HTGAWM a few weeks ago and have been hooked ever since. It’s a thinker, it gives you hints and just when you think you are one step ahead of the game then BAM it’s shocked you all over again. I am just a couple of episodes from the season finale, I can’t wait to see what happens!
If you are a fan of this show and Scandal I would love to hear what other programmes you enjoy, maybe you can recommend some things to me.
4- Sandstock & Camel selfies
If you didn’t read about Sandstock yet then where have you been?! It was the secret concert in the desert and the most fun I’ve had in a long time – Click here to read about it. With camping, bonfires, rolling about in the sand and searching for camels it was just one of those unplanned, random weekends that are the most fun and leave lasting memories.
Trying to take a selfie with my new camel friend, Jeff, was a little tricky as he was keen on swapping saliva.
5- Gym time
In February I renewed my gym membership and started to take more time for myself. My ‘baby’ has just turned one year old and I don’t have any excuse for still carrying the baby weight **sigh**
So I’m back to it, working out and staying active.
Not only is it good to loose a bit of timber, physically it is good to stay limber and flexible. For me, I also enjoy working out for the mental health benefits and to have a bit more body confidence. So far I am really enjoying it and like going to the classes for that extra push from a trainer.
Now I just need to work on the guns so they look a little less like pasty white noodles..
