Project 365 for 2019 – Week 3

Day 13 – Sunday 13th January

Hubby went to work today as he was taking Monday off so it was a quiet day at home. I was initially planning to taking the girls to Anglesey Abbey but woke up and it was really windy. Knew the eldest would just complain so opted to stay at home. So TV and games it was.


Day 14 – Monday 14th January

I had ordered some handmade soaps which didn’t have any animal fats in (so are classed as halal) and they arrived today. I had managed to get them when they were on sale so thought I would get all 5. The smell from the box wasn’t too overpowering and they all smelt nice.


Day 15 – Tuesday 15th January

I have been wanting to try kick boxing for a long time but the sessions at Bee’s old karate school were in the evening and I couldn’t commit to every week in the evening. At Bee’s new school they have started ladies sessions during the morning. I was hoping to start last month but chickened out.  I found someone to go with me but unfortunately she was sick the night before and didn’t go. I almost cancelled too but thought if I didn’t go this time I will never go and they will think I am crazy for booking and then cancelling! Ended up going and so glad I did! Was a pretty good workout and fun (although I think she was easy on us all as it was our first session). Am pretty sure I will sign up after the free trial ends.


Day 16 – Wednesday 16th January

A busy day today with a 2 hour Quran class in the morning and at Bee’s school in the afternoon for her reading cafe. I always love seeing the colourful work by the kids at the Madrassah.


Day 17 – Thursday 17th January

Got my cooking done in the morning as I had offered to go into school to help out in addition to my Tuesday session when I read with the kids. They children were going on their tech bus and using the virtual reality headsets and love seeing their excitement….although a few got a bit scared with the shark and being in a hot air balloon! Couldn’t take a picture of the kids in the bus so you have one of Rosie who keeps getting in my way when I try to pray!


Day 18 – Friday 18th January

A quiet day. Went for my Electrolysis appointment in the morning and then just chilled till the afternoon. Did some adult colouring in the evening before bed while watching TV. Was quite relaxing.


Day 19 – Saturday 19th January

Karate for Bee in the morning, and Urdu class for the eldest. Had lunch at the parents and then some clothes shopping with mum before heading home for dinner.

    Glad you go to the kick boxing. Always good when you get to something you’ve wanted to try for a while

      Yes it certainly feels good when you finally get to go!

      There is lots of screaming go on when the headsets are on!

    The kick boxing sounds like a lot of fun, well done for going, very impressed. I am the same and tend to chicken out of things. I like the sound of the pomegranate and fig soap. We had a quiet Sunday too because of the weather, really hoping it doesn’t get worse

    I’m like you when it comes to attending classes, hate being the only person there on my own. I’m much more aware of halal products since moving to Dubai where everything sold is halal, for none halal items there are special areas of the store clearly marked, I do think more about how people manage outside of the Middle East, must be so time consuming checking out labels all the time

    • January 25, 2019 / 7:07 pm

      Oh yes I noticed the separate areas when we visited Dubai! Made it easier

    Well done for going to the kick boxing class. The tech Bus sounds amazing, my son doesn’t have anything like that at school #365

    • January 25, 2019 / 7:07 pm

      The tech bus is new but going down well with the kids!

    It’s wonderful that you’ve found an exercise class you actually enjoy. I think that is key to keeping fit and healthy. We are not cut out for the same things. #365

    • January 25, 2019 / 7:05 pm

      Yes it certainly does help if you enjoy it

    The first photo reminded me that we haven’t played the Bananagrams for ages, must try to locate where it is. The soaps have lovely flavours to choose from.
    Glad you were brave to go to the kickboxing class on your own, and that you enjoyed the colouring.
    The tech bus sounds fabulous.

      The tech bus is certainly fun!
