Day 140 – Sunday 19th May
Bee had a charity Ramadan party to go to. With the money we paid to go the charity were hoping to sponsor orphans for a year. I think they managed to raise enough to sponsor 2 for the year. The party involved some Ramadan related crafts. We then went to belt testing in the evening and she managed to get her green belt with a B pass.
Day 141 – Monday 20th May
Had some bananas that were very ripe and got a bit of black skin so decided to make a banana cake.
Day 142 – Tuesday 21st May
Nothing particularly interesting happened today, just the usual school runs…so you have a picture of Rosie!
Day 143 – Wednesday 22nd May
Another relatively quiet day. I just went to my Quran class in the morning and then the usual school run. We are now half way through Ramadan. It seems to be flying by.
Day 144 – Thursday 23rd May
Hubby had a day off today and while I was at my Electrolysis appointment and then my Quran class he did a spot of cooking for when we broke our fast. After picking up the girls from school there was a bit of commotion in the garden and found the cat after a baby bird. Hubby then told me he had rescued it earlier from the conservatory from the cat. It couldn’t fly….and I didn’t know what to do with it. It was bleeding under its wing. From previous experience there was no point ringing the vet as they just say leave it as the parents are likely to be around…which is true as the parents were flying around and going a bit mad. Had to take Bee to karate so I hid it under a bush and barricaded it in as best as I could to stop the cat getting to it. Unfortunately when we got back it was out from under the bush and dead.
Day 145 – Friday 24th May
Final day of school before half term and the parents had been invited in to do some seaside related crafts with the kids to end the topic.
Day 146 – Saturday 25th May
A busy day today with Bee’s karate. She had her normal class at 9.45am……then fight club at 11.45….and then had to rush over to another karate school for an interclub competition. The traffic was crazy and we along with a couple of other parents were late but as we had an instructor with us she contacted the other school and they waited. Bee did well in her fights…this time there were 2 slightly older boys in her category and she did really well in the fight against one….but she lost 2 and won 1 which put her in the runner up place. She was a bit disappointed that she didn’t get a trophy!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Sounds like a busy week. Well done Bee! Good to hear she’s holding her own against older boys.

She is certainly doing well!
Well done Bee on the fight competition. Poor baby bird – we had the same issue with our childhood cat and finding a shocked baby rabbit he’d got to. We saved it and took it down to the hedgerow but had died the next day. Obviously a lot down to shock when they’re that small.
Yes I think it is the shock that kills them!
What a wonderful way to raise some money. Well done for sponsoring 2 orphans.
Oh no! That is a shame about the bird but I suppose things liek this happen 🙁
Well done Bee with the Karate. It’s a great effort x

Well done to Bee for all her karate, she is awesome! That must have been sad to see the baby bird. I love Bee’s seaside craft.

Thank you! She certainly is!
Way to go Bee on the karate. I love those crafts they are great. How adorable is that little bird xx
well done on the trophy Bee.
A lot going on for you with classes this week.
Glad you are finding Ramadan going quickly.
Survival of the fittest I suppose with the bird.
I am sure the 2 orphans will be very appreciative of their sponsorship

Yes can’t believe there are only a few days left for Ramadan
Sounds like quite a busy week! Well done Bee on the green belt she’s doing very well and I would have thought you should have got a runner up trophy!
