Hello! I’m Georgia, mother of two blonde boys and a journalist of 20 years standing. My husband and I moved to Dubai from London six years ago, and we live 5 minutes from the sea, which I love.
As a mum, I spend most of my days wiping noses and stepping on LEGO, but in my working life, I report for the BBC World Service on stories from across the Middle East. I’m also a presenter for the radio station Dubai Eye 103.8 FM, and I write for several publications, including Gulf Business, Condé Nast Traveller ME and The National newspaper.
So why the blog? I’m an over-sharer, and I love writing. If I find something new, I want to tell people about it. I hope The Sandpit will become your go-to daily dose of downtime, with details of the latest trends in food, fashion, books and beauty, plus advice on everything from teething toddlers, to family finance and handling your dodgy boss at work.
