Day 182 – Sunday 30th June
It was a friends 40th earlier in the week. She is a uni friend who I met in my last couple of years at uni and is one of my closest friends. Decided to go to Leicester with some birthday cupcakes and spend the day with her and her kids.
Day 183 – Monday 1st July
A relatively quiet day. Bee had cooking club after school and made a vegetable Jalfrezi.
Day 184 – Tuesday 2nd July
Yesterday evening I learnt that my Quran tutors mother had passed away in Egypt. As I see her also as a friend rather than just a tutor I went to her house today and spent the morning with her. Was heart breaking to see her so upset. Hubby then came home from work early so went out to lunch. After school tool the eldest to the local Islamic shop as she needed some new scarfs…and Bee wanted to get a bracelet she saw. Then in the evening went to a family friends house who’s daughter had recently got engaged….so went to offer our congratulations. A mix of emotions today.
Day 185 – Wednesday 3rd July
Another quiet day to be honest. Didn’t have my Quran class due to the bereavement so just did some washing and cooking. Had a wander around the garden to see what else had flowered. Loving all the colour in the garden at the moment. Bee found out today who her teacher would be for Year 2. She isn’t in a class with any of her close friends but to be honest I am a bit grateful. One was too dependant on Bee from what I could see…and with another she was always bickering about silly things and there seemed to be competition between the two. I am not worried as I know she makes friends quickly and therefore will be fine in her new class.
Day 186 – Thursday 4th July
Had my electrolysis appointment in the morning….then rushed home to take mum to her diabetic eye screening. Then in the afternoon popped to Bee’s school to meet her new teacher and spend time in her new class. Her new teacher and TA both seem lovely. Eldest met us at Bee’s school at the end of the day and had made cakes at school. They were a bit raw though but managed to salvage them by putting them in the oven when got home. Apparently she put too much mixture into each case, so took longer to cook and then they run out of time as it was the last class of the day.
Day 187 – Friday 5th July
I had offered to help out today at the school as the Year 2’s were having a leaving treat – a morning with Lego! They had to build a lego city. The time just flew by and I was amazed at the kids creativity!
Then in the afternoon I went to the eldest’s school as she was taking part in the final of a Spelling Bee competition. Her house didn’t win but she did well…not sure I could stand there with a spotlight on me trying to remember spellings!
Day 188 – Saturday 6th July
All day spent at Bee’s karate today. She had her lessons until 1pm and then interclub at 1.30pm. I wasn’t sure she would want to take part in the competition after what happened at the recent fight night where she got a harsh punch to the face but she wanted to take part. Luckily this time she was in a group of 3 and they were all girls and roughly the same height. She won both her fights and came 1st! Will see what happens at the next interclub now but have warned her that sometimes she will have to fight with boys in these interclubs…and has to toughen up a bit if she wants to continue with them.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
You always seem to give the best cakes to people.
So sorry about your friends mother. It sounds like Tuesday was a real mixed day.
It sounds like the new class for Bee will be great for her. She sounds like a lovely girls so I don’t doubt she’ll make new friends quickly.
Wow! That Lego city looks fantastic.
Well done Bee! It sounds like she has her confidence back with the Karate.

Yes hopefully her confidence stays…have told her that sometimes she w ill get knocks
Well done to Bee on winning her fights! The Lego city looks amazing and I love the positive attitude about the new class. I hope she is very happy in year 2. I had to laugh at your eldest’s cooking from school coming home slightly uncooked, we have exactly the same with my daughter! Was very pleased that she had her last EVER food tech lesson the other day. We won’t miss her creations (or the money spent on ingredients) at all!

Usually her food isn’t too bad but these ones were a disaster! Thankfully managed to rescue them!
Hope your friend had a good 40th. Well done on salvaging the cakes. Congratulations to Bee on winning.

She had a quiet one….went for a meal with the family.
Your girls are becoming big girls Foz.
Well done to Bee!
Sad for your friend. It’s good when you can just be with people when these kind of news reach them.
Sending you love from France

Thank you. Yes they certainly growing up fast! Hope you are well x
Well done to Bee with the karate, glad to hear the last incident hasn’t put her off. Your friends cakes and eldests cakes look fab, hope your daughters cakes were still tasty after putting them back in the oven. The veg jalfrezi looks yummy also and I love all that lego
They still tasted ok! Was surprised to be honest but they were still a bit warm when put them back in the oven.
Glad she is back to enjoying her karate.
Sorry to read of your friends mum, nice of you to go offer support.
Congrats to the luck couple.
Love her bracelet
Nice when they make friends easy, my middle daughter was always Miss Popular, sadly not so ger sisters.
Yep the eldest wasn’t so popular either to be honest
Well done Bee on the 1st place. N’s tennis is the same, they can play mixed tennis until 11 years old as they say there’s no difference in strength or size generally for tennis.
The cooking club sounds great. N’s school don’t have the facilities to do that, although I think year 6 always have 1 day a year where they get to cook.
With the official comps the boys and girls are split…it just seems to be the interclubs where they mix them up
Well done Bee on coming first in her competition. Sorry to hear about your friends mum, its very good of you to offer her support. Loving all the different colours in the cake mixture and I hope that your friend enjoyed her cupcakes

Thank you! She was pleased to come first!
That Lego City is amazing, my son would be in heaven if they did that at his school. Sorry that it’s been a mix of emotions for you this week #365
It certainly was amazing. I think they will be doing it again next year as it went down so well
