A relatively unexciting week!
Day 111 – Sunday 21st April
Another day spent at home not doing much. Got the bubbles and games out and just relaxed at home. Did a bit of blog work and got the latest post in my Muslim Mums in Business series live featuring Lift Everest.
Day 112 – Monday 22nd April
Popped into town to get some bits and bobs and ended up treating the girls to a spot of lunch. Treated myself to a non alcoholic mocktail which was a blueberry one with lemonade and mint.
Day 113 – Tuesday 23rd April
Had to go back to the shops as got Bee some summer dresses yesterday for school and realised some were the shorts type she doesn’t like. Stupidly I had taken the labels off and washed them before realising my mistake….so I couldn’t really return them…so had to buy more. Drowned my sorrows by getting some cheap Easter Eggs.
Day 114 – Wednesday 24th April
Back to school for both girls. Was nice to actually see them off and get a bit of time to myself. Didn’t do much but I did manage to get a blog post live about a new Ramadan book we had purchased: Ramadan Around the World. A friend then messaged in the afternoon asking if it was ok to pop round as her hubby was coming for a job from Leicester and would be a good opportunity to meet up as he could drop her and the kids off while he did what he had to. Was too late to cook anything so decided to order some pizza when they arrived and had fun couple of hours in the evening. And she brought cake!
Day 115 – Thursday 25th April
Had my electrolysis appointment in the morning and returned home to find hubby still at home. His car had issues and he couldn’t get to work. So another day of pretty much chilling and not doing anything else. Hubby ended up taking my car to get the brakes changed as at the last MOT we had been advised to change them within 6 months. So nothing special today so a picture of Rosie chilling.
Day 116 – Friday 26th April
Another relatively quiet day. Got the cooking done and then relaxed until school pick up time. A new book arrived today which will be good to have during Ramadan as it shares some prayers.
Day 117 – Saturday 27th April
Usual Saturday routine of eldest going to her Urdu class and Bee going to karate. However during fight club Bee said her tummy hurt so we left early. The fight club is more intense training and I think she gets anxious. Neither of her friends were there today either so I think the anxiety kicked it. She was pleased though that her cap had arrived…it is a bit on the big side but she will grow into it!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
I love Bee’s cap. Sorry to hear she was feeling anxious about fight club. That’s understandable when her friends aren’t there.
Your mocktail looks delicious. I was tempted by bargain Easter eggs, but I think we’ve already got enough chocolate around the house as it is!

It was pretty delicious!
I’ve been scoffing easter chocolate too although the bargains weren’t as good here. Those cupcakes look good.
Sadly I haven’t been able to eat too much chocolate due to the diabetes. Used to scoff loads!
Ohh! The mocktail looks and sounds so good!
Well done with the bargain Easter eggs. I swear when my girls have left home I will only buy reduced Easter eggs. hehehe
It sounds like you had a lovely time with your friend. Pizza and cakes. What more could you want.
Aww! Poor Bee. So sorry she was feeling anxious. I love her cap! x

Yes it was nice to have a catch up with her as had been a while since we had seen each other
Aw seems like a quiet weekend and my husband does the exact same thing! Rips the tags off and washes them and if not to his liking he has to sell on eBay!
I don’t rip tags off until I’m 100% sure I’m going to wear it and even then I keep the receipt because I need time to think things through and if the time has expired I can see on eBay new with tags!
Loving Bee’s cap Mashallah!

I’ve done this before with the summer dresses…you would think I would have learnt my lesson by now!
oh no at hubbys car having issues. hope you can get them sorted.
How lovely of your friend to plan her visit, and she knows you well bringing cakes.
Shame she missed her friends at the fight club.

Was an expensive car issue!
Hope the car issues weren’t too costly. I need more friends who bring cakes like that I think!#365
Unfortunately 1k expense
Love Bee’s cap it looks great on her, hope her tummy is feeling better as the week has gone on. I’ve only had one Easter Egg this year and haven’t enjoyed it. The mocktail looks lovely
She stuffed herself with sweets another parent had brought so I think that contributed to the tummy ache..I usually don’t give her that much
I do like Bee’s cap. It’s probably natural for her to feel a bit anxious if her friend’s weren’t at Fight Club.

Yep she was anxious a bit anyway about the club so when her friends weren’t there it made it worse
I can not believe how much chocolate I have seen on social media at discounted prices this year. Sorry to hear about the uniform. The mocktail looks very good. Hope your daughter is okay it must be difficult when her friends are not there. Your cat looks very regal in that photo!

The mocktail was delicious!
