Day 210 – Sunday 28th July
Today we did absolutely nothing except laze around in our pyjamas and watch films! Managed to get the latest blog post in my Muslim Mums in Business series live featuring Farhat Amin.
We had an old booster seat in the back of the car which isn’t particularly comfortable at all (plus I don’t like the ones without a high back) so was going to throw it. But then Rosie claimed it as her own and now sleeps on it.
Day 211 – Monday 29th July
Went to Whispnade Zoo today. I had exchanged some Tesco clubcard vouchers back in February and they were about to expire. Took my parents as well and took the car into the zoo so when they got tired they could sit in the car while we wandered around. The last time we went to Whipsnade Zoo was in 2015. Published a blog post in the morning before we left, which I had worked on yesterday, about where to buy your Eid Decorations from Online.
Day 212 – Tuesday 30th July
Relaxed at home today after yesterdays trip. Tried to declutter Bee’s room and rearranged it a bit. She has now been told that anything I find on the floor at the end of the day will end up in the bin no matter what it is. Bee spent the day some crafts and colouring in a T-shirt her dad had got her.
Day 213 – Wednesday 31st July
Went to the cinema to watch The Lion King which we all loved and then in the afternoon popped to the library to sign up to their summer reading challenge.
Day 214 – Thursday 1st August
Took mum to her physiotherapy appointment and then went to my Quran class. On the way home as I was stationary waiting to turning right back into my parents road, someone came and hit my car from behind. It was a shock and initially I was like ‘What the hell just happened?’ We parked up and she came to the car saying she didn’t see me indicate. I told her I was and I have a dash cam that is good at picking up sounds in the car and probably heard the indicator. She said she wasn’t disputing that I wasn’t indicating but that she just didn’t see the indicator.
Got to my parents and rang the insurers. Within a couple of hours the recovery truck had arrived to take the car, her insurers had phoned me to say she had admitted it was her fault and to check I was ok and to offer their help….and the hire car was sorted for the morning as unfortunately they didn’t have one for me today.
I had tickets booked for Drayton Manor tomorrow and my friend (who was going with us) offered that I could drive her car (she is scared of driving long distances), but her car is small and I am now used to bigger 4×4’s and I wasn’t comfortable driving someone else’s car and having to pay for 1 day insurance. So phoned Drayton Manor and they said we have until October to go and I just have to phone up before to say which day we are going. So decided we will go in a couple of weeks time.
Day 215 – Friday 2nd August
Once the replacement car arrived we ended up meeting up with my friend who we were meant to be going Drayton Manor with today. Took the kids to the trampoline park, went out to lunch and then popped to her house for a little while. They have a hamster and now the girls want one too!
Day 216 – Saturday 3rd August
Back to karate today. We had missed the Thursday session due to the car accident. The karate school are doing some extra workshops and one on Bo staff. Bee thought it was going to be scary so they showed her what it would be about and she decided she did want to book on the workshop after all at the end of August.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Don’t think I’ve ever been to Whipsnade Zoo, hope you had a good time and nice for your mum and dad to go along with you. So sorry to hear about your accident, I hope you are ok, glad the other driver admitted responsibility and you have a hire car. Pleased Drayton Manor can be rearranged
Thankfully no injuries after the accident!
It sounds like a good day out at the zoo.
hahaha! I always say that anything left on the floor is to go in the bin. I never have the heart to follow through with my threat though.
Oh no, so sorry about someone hitting your car.x

Yep I once chucked some stuff into the bin in a bag and then felt bad and took it out again!
The car accident must have been a nasty accident, but thank goodness she owned up there and then. I hope the repairs don’t take too long. Rosie looks very happy on her seat. That’s a lovely photo at the zoo.

I was worried that she might try to make out I wasn’t indicating but there was a witness as well who said he would come forward if she tried to deny it.
What a pain about the car. It always comes at an inconvenience time as well. We must go back to Whipsnade. Our previous experience was very cold and not great. There’s a serious lot of walking there too!
Yes the zoo is so big and lots of walking. It is good they have a bus that goes round too!
What a pain about the car but glad you are all ok and that Drayton Manor were flexible on your tickets. love that t-shirt kit, my son would like that one #365
The t-shirt did keep her entertained for a while!
How annoying about the accident, but glad everybody ok. Glad you can use your tickets at a later date.
DD1 is like you prefers the seats with a back on as feels it offers more protection.
A nocturnal per does not really make a good pet, they can be noisy and smelly.
Hmmm dont think you have much chance of her room being kept tidy but go luck with that.

Well hubby has said a clear no the hamster so that is now a no go!
I’ve not visited that zoo before, it looks fab. I hope you had a nice time. I hope you are ok after the accident. xx
Thankfully wasn’t hurt in the accident x
