I started early with my DH and DD who fainted as per normal for her. I decided to teach my DH the technique so he could cup me and mashaAllah he did a fine job for first time. DD videoed it on my phone so i could have a look. That's me sorted now alhamduilah, as i often had to go in search for a therapist and last month i paid £30 for it. After being cupped we have a warm drink of honey.

Just pottering about , mixed some pizza dough as dd 7yrs old has been asking to make pizzas for ages after she discovered my new cute little rolling pin (pictures latter).

I have more clients arriving in about an hour i find the spring season is popular for cupping therapy.

The long weekend has been and almost gone , its been wet and grey, we stayed at home just enjoying each others company, i have a mountain of ironing i need to tackle today as i have been saying for about a week.
I started a cushion case with my new wool, which is coming on but i find myself becoming dishearterned so soon, my problem is i want results and fast..........i am so impressed with Barbara and the amount of dish cloths she turns out, i got a new crochet magazine and feel inspired so need to get cracking.

My kids have to stop from their Saturday Arabic school sadly which means i feel stressed about their Arabic and quran learning but will try to maintain it best i can inshaAllah (God Willing). My DD 15yrs old has finished her 3 month TAWHEED course , that she enjoyed so much mashaAllah. I am planing to go and do a 3 month course myself for the June term. My Tajweed class is going well but i find when problems hit home my studies suffer alhamduilah.

I will be back latter with pictures and more ............just other stuff we did today, i finially used my Ramikien dishes that i purchased a month ago with a credit crunch dessert. Strawberry jelly topped with strawberry mouse topped with shavings of dark chocolate.

Assalaamu Alaykum,

That's so good you got the hijama done ma sha Allah.

If you get bored quickly, with your crochet project, just do something else, maybe something quicker and smaller until you feel like going back to your bigger project! I wonder if you got Inside Crochet (magazine)?

Wow, that's amazing that you do the hijama at home. I've only heard before of one other person who did it and it was a brother who did it in the masjid. Anyway, pizzas look delicious. Can see why you and your dd finished a tray!
