They say it doesn't rain much in Qatar but the view from my shiny new 3rd floor apartment is torrential rain and lightning. It's really lashing it down. I'm glad I parked the car outside as it definitely needed a clean, and seemed to come with no rear wiper. So I've finally moved into Al Seal, and it's lovely. I've got a 1 bed flat, but it's about double the size of my one in England and has a gorgeous kitchen, although I haven't figured out how to work the hob - so my massive supermarket shop at Carrefour was wasted. Tomorrow I'll tell you what the view out the window is like. It should be good, although most of West Bay is a building site.

I don't have the energy to unpack tonight, that'll have to wait until tomorrow. The previous occupant left some wine so I'm having a very pleasant glass of Chablis before retiring for the night. There's zero sign that it's Easter here - but not being religious I can't say I'm bothered. Though Happy Easter to everyone that's reading this. I hope to settle down here soon and get Skype up and running again soon. To be honest I just haven't got the time for a lot of things but life should calm down a bit now, both work wise and personally.

Anyway, phew, long day. Night night.
