Summer is building!
I am offshore at the moment, and previous trips I have noticed that there is approximately a 10'C-15'C variance to the temperature between offshore and onshore. This trip things are definitely heating up. I went out for a walk around the plant and took a th...

What no water??? Maintenance time!
Was across the road at the Radisson for another training course today. Came back to the villa and noticed that the water out of the taps appeared to be not as high a pressure. Quick check of all the others and noticed they were all the same. Went up to the ...

Schooling Finalised - At last!
As you have probably worked out from my other posts relating to schooling, getting places can be an absolute headache. Let alone getting two places for two different grades at the same school to make things easier! Following the recent visit to Doha of Nadi...

Holidays and Relocation
Been almost a couple of weeks since my last post, so thought I had better do something. The delay has been for good reason though! I went back to the UK to meet up with family and friends and head over to Tignes in France for a spot of end of season skiing....

A reliable tradesman? You bet!
As you maybe read in my last post, when the plumber was here to sort out the lack of water problem I made an off the cuff remark about the leaking cistern in the downstairs toilet. He said he would come back on Saturday at 9.30 am to fix it. Being the weeke...

Blitzortung coming soon to Doha!
As some of you may already now, I built a lightning detector as part of the Blitzortung network which lives on the roof of my house in Aberdeen. Now that I am also in Qatar, I thought it would be good to add a second station to my account and take it out wi...

AirCon Failure! I'm melting.......
Last night, I was woken by the bin men doing their rounds...at 2.30am! Suppose it keeps them out of the rush hour traffic and prevents chaos like it does in Aberdeen. Anyway, when I woke up and went to look and see what the noise was, I noticed that the bed...

Fruit, fruit and more fruit.
Back in the UK I was never really a big fruit eater. Occasionally would have the odd Granny Smith apple or a handful of seedless grapes and maybe the odd tangerine.  It is maybe the fact that I have a fresh plate of fruit delivered to the office everyday, b...
