Ok, so I'm no beauty expert but this girl needs a little help to make herself look and feel a little better. Being a teacher means you're always on a stage so I've learnt the art of contouring; too many crinkles not to. I'm not sure if I'm doing it the right way, I'm sure I'm not, but I'll continue to spend that extra ten minutes in the morning blending and shaping.
Two holidays rolled into one to make one humongous holiday of ten days.
Muscat Daily Newspaper: His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said has issued a Royal Order declaring July 24, 2014 as national holiday for the employees of the ministries, public authorities and other administrative units of the state, on the eve of the Blessed Renaissance day.
At the same time, Minister of Manpower has also announced the holiday on occasion of the Blessed Renaissance Day for the workers of companies and institutions of private sector on Thursday, July 24, 2014.
The minister's statement said that owners of businesses and workers can agree on compensation for the holiday if required according to the nature work. Similarly, it is also necessary to compensate those workers whose weekly holidays fall during the holidays, the Ministry of Manpower statement clarified.

Question: So what am I going to do for the next ten days?
Answer: Not very much at all!
Today I slept till 10:30. I must have needed it as I normally wake up at 6 every morning.
On Monday I managed to sleep in and wake up ten minutes before my first class at 8. I woke up and fell over as I ran to phone a friend to ask her to cover me. I burst into my son's room and asked why he didn't wake me up. He said he didn't want to piss me off by waking me up and that I would shout at him. "Well, I'm shouting at you now!" The housemaid and my son were apparently stood at my bedroom door at 7am telling each other "It's your turn" to wake the wicked witch up. They both agreed to leave me.
I got to work about twenty minutes after class, and my class shouted "ABSENT" to me as I walked into class. I couldn't get it together for the rest of the day. On my way home I stopped at LuLu and picked up two large chicken biryani's and chucked them in the slow cooker on low ready for fatour at 7. Hubby was non the wiser that they were from LuLu and I never said they weren't.
