Raining on Mr Bush

Miserable weather here at the moment. Staring out of the window trying to avoid doing my expenses, I felt as if I were back at home in London.
Dubai usually has one four or five day grey rainy period every twelve months, usually between Dec and Feb. It gets chilly – 15C! I might even find myself wearing a jumper with my shorts.
I always feel sorry for people who are unlucky enough to book their yearly holiday to Dubai’s ‘year round sunshine’ for the one week it rains. Funnily enough, that’s exactly what George Bush has done. He’ll be here tomorrow, apparently. Most useful roads are closed, so I don’t think Mrs Saul will be able to get to school and I certainly won’t be able to get to the office.
We’ll have to spend the afternoon at home in the grey, playing Scrabble, as if we’d been transplanted back to Richmond for the day.
