Several readers of The Moodie BLOG have expressed their concerns about the wintry working conditions (pictured left) The Moodie Report Publisher chooses to inflict upon himself down in the company’s original Worldwide Headquarters,┬ámischievously dubbed ‘The Shed’ by Abu Dhabi Duty Free boss Mohamed Mounib.

But our latest picture (right) shows why there has been a new spring in the step of the Publisher lately, who, thanks to the virtues of siting his think-tank at the foot of his garden, can truly lay claim to being a man for all seasons.

If we’re occasionally a thorn in the side of our media rivals, or if we’re prone to rambling on, now you know why. The magnificent white rose seen climbing over the shed… sorry, Worldwide HQ (damnit Mohamed) is now threatening to grow around the front door, trapping the work force inside and ensuring┬áThe Moodie Report┬átruly does become the website that never sleeps (in the house).

But who cares? When there’s such beauty to gaze out at from spring through summer, the travel retail industry seems a pretty nice universe to inhabit. And we hope it gives our coverage a freedom of spirit that the late, great Nat King Cole captured better than we ever could…

Ramblin’ rose, Ramblin’ rose,

Why you ramble, no-one knows,

Wild and wind-blown, that’s how you’ve grown

Who can cling to a ramblin’ rose?

  • What a wonderful HQ for the Moodie Report – now we know why you put out the quality that you do. With such beautiful suroundings one gets easily inspired – it beats long commutes and traffic jams and office politics.

    We also look out to the garden and make sure no squirrel grabs the next ripe tomato on the vines.
    Life is good.

  • what a beautiful sight!!! We have to work and live in a good and beautiful environment so that we could work and live better! In fact, the left hand pic is nice too, it looks pure and calm and waits for spring coming!

    BTW, I love flowers especially roses, any kind of!
