My starter was delish but i felt the shawrma is better left to the Arabs and Turkish. I did like the d├ęcor , the tiles gave a great feel to the seating environment!

The set up is very spacious and retro in design with pink leather seating and black granite walls and tables. Hosting a vast range of delish ice cream and deserts. There is something for every one one the menu .The Italian Job being the most expensive at £25.
Here is what we had.

Over the past two weeks

The past two weeks have been demanding and stressful to say the least but somehow by the grace of my creator alhamduilah , i made it through.

Sometimes life and what happens in it can be very overwhelming and mentally exhausting at the best of times.

These two week were such, with a leaking tank that had now spilled through to the ceiling and into the down stairs Wash room blowing out the electrics in the process. What exhausted me here was the incompetence of 4 plumbers, that it took to decide what to be done. After more delay and a leak that was getting faster by the day. Finally it was remediable and fixed much to my delight. Prompting a new heating system which now in hindsight was worth the stress and incompetence as the end result is desirable.

Just getting over the leak and the cluttered home, cleaning away the workmen's presence. My DD teenager , drops a bomb on me , so it felt at the time but had my brain not been overloaded with other stuff then perhaps it would not have seemed half as serious. The think is the matter could be resolved but it was the reaction it was having on DD that was so exhausting me.

To begin with it all started with a letter, that was not received with the sincerity it was written and instead hostility developed. I needed to conduct some of my own investigation's to make sure all was what it seemed.

I am so glad i went to discuss the mater with those concerned as nothing is ever black and white and you need to hear both sides. sometimes events become piousness by others assumptions and in maturity. honesty is a key factor and if you are dealing with dishonesty then your progress will be hindered.

After a 20 minute chat all was dealt with and the objective achieved and i am so glad i went to face this in person , otherwise i may have been sitting here still overloaded and encountering the migraine that appeared last week. Alhamduilah for honesty , alhamduilah for ability and most of all alhamduilah for the power of dua!
