Dubai Snapshots: Driving slow to stop the flu

Woke up with a serious cold and a throbbing headache this morning. Around 9 o'clock, I've had enough of my non-stop sneeze fest and was itching to go out and enjoy the weekend. Though feeling slightly feverish, I've asked the boyfriend if we could drive around outside to get some sun. I was so certain that if I nurse this virus under the covers all day instead, it's gonna morph into a full-blown flu (which is the last thing I would want of course). Being sick is absolutely no fun.

We drove slowly around Jumeirah Beach Road with the radio on and even parked in front of the public beach for a good 30 minutes. The blue of the sky and the sea couldn't get any more beautiful today. I was really tempted to take a dip because the weather felt so perfect for a swim. But maybe next time. Just basking in the sun, feeling good, and enjoying the great outdoors... it was enough for me. 

We brought along with us one of my Blythe dolls, Tippy, by the way. I think she enjoyed the short drive outside as much as I did. I am really thankful the boyfriend agreed to drive me around outside today because it was exactly what I needed to feel a lot better.

How's your weekend going so far? I hope you're all in the pink of health! :)

  6. I hope you are feeling better! What a pretty day to drive around. I am so jealous you live so close to the sea. I am sure driving to the beach with my boyfriend and blythe would make me feel better too :] Tippy is beautiful by the way!!!
