After reading the journey Fellow Fabber Robinesques has been on it has made me curious about her. I can’t believe I am the only one who has questions but maybe I am the only one rude enough to ask. I did send her a PM asking if this would be ok. Obviously anything she feels is too private I respect her wishes to not answer.
I am genuinely interested in people and will soak up most human interest stories. So as I read her blog and other things in the past I am curious.

 Robin where did you grow up? And where did you meet your husband?
You have moved many times it sounds like. Where are all the places you have lived? And do you have a favorite?

Have you ever worked outside of your home?

Considering all the places you have lived I am guessing you have came across many different types of cultures. How do you and your family adapt? And do you take any with you?

Your kids are beautiful by the way. What do you do that keeps them grounded thru out your journey’s? Do you find that they excell in some areas of school and are challenged in others?

You say that you married into the Arabic culture. How easy was it to adapt to that culture? And what is your favorite thing about it?
How easy/hard is it to blend American and Arabic cultures together?  

You spoke of henna-ing.... what does that mean?

And what of these malls that UKGirl Vicki brought up? Are they  more fabulous than what we have here?

Do you foresee another move in your near future? Where would you like to move to?

I know there are more that I would like to ask but I’m sure Robin is going to look at this and go “whew, that girl is nosy“.

Feel free to ask your own questions. Robin is probably sleeping righ now and won’t get these till her next morning or day.

Thank You Robinesque for sharing your adventure with us.

Here is her blog about her recent move.

    • I’m looking forward to the answers. I’ve heard a little bit of her story over time here and her life is certainly interesting. And love the humor she uses with everything she does!

    • Ladies I will tell you about the Mall's they are amazing – it's like stepping into wonderland with every bell and whistle going – can you imagine they are built on a massive scale think Disney with icing and you have every type of shop from your regular High Street names to high end designers. They have an Olympic sized ice rink in one and a shark filled aquarium .......plus 1400 shops in one mall.
      Everything is cheaper due to tax free economy and if say you want a first rate investment diamond I would say go to Dubai as it's now the premier diamond centre of the world – as the stones are mined in Africa or Russia and cut in India so Dubai make sense are it's easy access – so you buy the diamond and then have it mounted I "treated "myself and saved a small fortune which I then spent on other bits.

      Look at the link – the voice is my close friend Louise who moved there about 4 years ago.

      Vikki, I found myself grinning at the curiosity. ( and yes, I’m flattered, [DOREEN!!], that you’d be that interested.  These questions need their own blog! (OMG, I’m blogging!!
