Happy Birthday

Two important birthdays today - one is our baby, who is now 17 (where does the time go!), and the other is the country we live in, which celebrates its 33rd National Day today.

This National Day is meant to be a bit subdued as we are still in the official 40-day mourning period for the late President Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Everybody is off work anyway, except, strangely, the banks. For whatever reason, all banks in the UAE will be taking Saturday 4th as a holiday - more than likely they need to catch up on some trading time with the West, having missed so much time recently because of Mourning and Eid.
