Well i would like to say my abscence has been planned but it was not , my mind pre occupied mainly with other stuff happening in my life right now has not allowed me to sit and relax. not to mention my hard drive crashed and this one is not nearly as high tec as we all want it to be ''sigh'' but alhamduilah at least i can get on.
My dh went on hajj and is still there due to return end of the week, i have felt so sad at having to seprate again afte finaily getting together as a family after 3yrs years but the Pilgramige softens the blow for me and i pray Allah accepts it ameen.
Another major avent i decided to put the kids into British State School............a tough decision, as they have never been to school ever in the UKand were home educated. It's the first 7days so far so good alhamduilah and the school are very accomadation to my wishes more importantly they like it and the learning is coming on well , just in 7 days subhan Allah!
Eid Al Adha came and went it was to be a quite affair but we ended up having a ball with the neighbours mashaAllah, i made some cakes Algerian ofcourse!
My Bangladeshi neighbour got me a SARI as an EID present and then wanted me to wear it on the day. I felt they needed to see me in my Indain Glory baring in mind i have not worn a sari for 15yrs, i must say it was great fun and i loved the whole sari expierence and getting intouch with my roots. I got a make over on Eid day another sister did my make up...smoky eyes by MAC all new to me.
We also have a Canadian sister staying with us since my dh's depature. We
never knew her before but she was in need and alhamduillah we were able to help out, she is moving out on Saturday. All i can say is she has been a breath of fresh air mashaAllah and a pleasure to have.
I also met up with another Canadian-British, yes Ameena from Ameena's adventures after 2yrs of cyber friendship the day finally came and it was a pleasure. Again a really lovely sister who i pray gets herself sorted and enjoy's a happy life ameen. We took her on a tour of East London at its best Canery wharf, it became a very nostalgic day for both Canadians. lots of good fun and nice food , well we had to EAT!
We have been out and about doing different things visiting family and friends although sadly i never got to visit seeking Taqwa after EID and i pray she is feeling better.
I have done little crafts although i did in the first week and started a larger project, have been baking breads.
