Day 125 – Sunday 5th May
A quiet day without the eldest at home. Popped to the shops, then to the parents and came home and put up the decorations as it might be Ramadan tomorrow. However by the evening we realised that Ramadan would most likely start on Tuesday for us, even though some were starting tomorrow. The UK is always split as there is a debate about following Saudi and when they see the moon and local moon sighting.
Day 126 – Monday 6th May
The bank holiday was pretty quiet. We didn’t do much…and then the eldest came home from her residential…surprisingly on time. She had had a fab time. Then decided to eat out for the final time for at least a month as we personally don’t eat out during Ramadan.
Day 127 – Tuesday 7th May
First fast today. Had a governors meeting at the school in the morning. And then came home and relaxed a bit. Got some of my books out that I hope to read during Ramadan.
Day 128 – Wednesday 8th May
Dad had an appointment with the kidney specialist today. Dads kidney function has always been up and down but it seems to be more down these days. She ordered some more blood tests and will be working with the GP to try to get dads blood pressure down as that can be damaging to the kidneys.
Day 129 – Thursday 9th May
Had my electrolysis appointment in the morning and then headed to my Quran class. Was running late but got a text to say not to worry as class was cancelled as the tutors husband had fallen and hurt his back. Went to see if I could help in anyway with the kids as it appeared that they might be going hospital. They didn’t end up going hospital but stuck around a bit in case any help was needed. Didn’t really take any pictures today…so here is a random one of Rosie.
Day 130 – Friday 10th May
Bee came out of school pleased with herself as she was made a ‘Shine Ambassador’ at school. This is for showing the school value of determination. Spoke to the teacher and she said its because she is always determined to succeed in everything she does.
Day 131 – Saturday 11th May
Karate this morning. Asked her if she wanted to stay home as I wanted a lie in….the lack of sleep due to ramadan is getting to me….but she wanted to go. I then thought we could come home before fight club because she doesn’t always want to do it…but of course today she wanted to do it. Then in the afternoon went to Specsavers to get her eyes checked. Her eyes were checked 6 months ago and it was noted there was a slight weakness in her right eye compared to her left. Apparently there has been some slight improvement and they want to check her again in 6 months.

Ramadan Kareem. Sorry to hear your dad is still having blood pressure problems. Well done to Bee becoming a shine ambassador at school
The Ramadan decorations look fab!
Oh no, so sorry to hear about your dad. I hope his blood pressure can be brought down.
Well done Bee! Being a Shine Ambassador sounds like a great achievement.x

Thank you. The blood pressure is worrying
What a lovely thing, the Shine Ambassador. Well done her. N needs to have his eyes tested too – must book him in.
It certainly is a lovely concept
Goodness! May Allah give your Quran teacher’s husband Shifaa, hope he is doing well now In Shaa Allah. And Mabrook to Bee for her award!
Alhamdulillah he is doing ok. Suffers from an ongoing bad back
And thank you!
Aww well done Bee that is awesome. And what a cool badge too. Those balloons are fab too xx
Must be hard when different places have different start dates and time to Ramadan, not as clear cut as other holidays.
Your meal looks nice, quite right to have one last treat. I guess a lot of the cafes/restaurants in higher Muslim population areas will find their takings down at this time of year.
Well done on her Shine Ambassador award.

I think a lot do go out to eat in the evening or order takeaways but yes I would say their takings generally do go down
Hope they can help your Dad following the tests and that your daughter’s eyesight continues to improve #365
I am sorry to hear about your dad. I hope there is something they can do to bring his blood pressure down. Well done Bee thats great news!
They have given him more meds so will see if that helps
Lovely pictures. We in Pakistan also sometimes have issues determining moon sitings. We follow our own time but a specific group of people follows Saudi time. Ramadan Mubarak! I hope ur dad’s health gets better good to know u went and helped the family & Rosie looks so cute. Congrats on Bee for being a Shine Ambassador. We should all have the same determination as Bee
Thank you! Yes it seems to be quite common now with some following Saudi and others following local
