Day 266 – Sunday 22nd September
Horse riding for the eldest today. Her lesson wasn’t until next week but as she missed last Sunday due to Bee’s birthday and will be missing next Sunday too due to our charity walk…I booked her in today. While she was at horse riding I took Bee to Smyths so she could use her gift card she was given at her birthday. She purchased some LOL things. Got to say I hate them…expensive plastic tat.
Day 267 – Monday 23rd September
Had a full school governors meeting this evening but I was so stretched that I had to send my apologies. Bee had her Quran class and then her karate weapons training….but at the same time the eldest was getting her braces fitted. I wanted to go with her to make sure we knew what we were doing in terms of aftercare. Hubby had a day off so he took Bee to her classes while I went with the eldest.
Day 268 – Tuesday 24th September
Hubby left for Pakistan today. He has gone for 4 weeks to see his family. I do sometimes get miffed that he gets a 4 week holiday without the kids and I don’t, but he does go to see his parents and I can’t begrudge him that. But him going every year and then us not being able to afford a proper family holiday just annoys me sometimes. The cat is pretty happy he has gone…she relaxes more when he isn’t around!
Day 269 – Wednesday 25th September
Went into town to go shopping for a raincoat for the charity walk on Sunday. Heavy rain is forecast and beginning to get a bit nervous about doing it. I haven’t managed to walk as much as I wanted to this week. The treadmill was hard on my legs and a friend said that it can be harder compared to actually walking outside. Decided to take it easy before the actual walk on Sunday. Not sure if that strategy will work…will see.
Day 270 – Thursday 26th September
A governor meeting at school in the morning…got spotted by Bee in school twice! Then at the end of the day she told me she was made school councillor by her fellow classmates. They all voted and she got the most votes. Had some ice cream to celebrate.
Day 271 – Friday 27th September
Quran class in the morning and then back home to get some cooking and other odd jobs done. Received my QR code for the walk on Sunday and some other essential info. Not long left! Didn’t take a picture of anything interesting today so you have a pic of the map for the walk! If anyone would like to sponsor me the link is: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fozia-shah3.
Day 272 – Saturday 28th September
Karate in the morning. We didn’t get to do Fight Club today as belt testings were happening. Decided not to put Bee in for her belt testing this time as it has only been 3 months and I feel she needs more practice before her next one. After class popped to a friends to pick up a Body Shop order and Bee fell in love with her dogs. She tried to convince my friend to let us take one home for the 4 weeks her dad is away! Then back to town to try to find some trousers that are a bit waterproof for the walk tomorrow. Got home and rented Aladdin on Amazon and watched that with the girls.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Good luck for the walk! I hope the weather isn’t too awful.
I hope the braces are going OK for your eldest. The dentist told us my daughter’s front teeth stick out a bit and she may need braces. I literally had no idea of this and no dentist has ever mentioned it before, but now I can’t un-see it. We have a wait of 18 months before we even get a consultation.
Nice try by Bee at trying to persuade your friend to let her have the dog for a few weeks!

Yes it did take a around a year for us to get a consultation too!
The LOL toys are so expensive for what they are. Of course my girl loves them. Ugh!
I hope your eldest is getting on OK with her braces.
Congrats to Bee for becoming a school councillor. How exciting.
I hope the charity walk went well x

Yep she is doing ok with her braces now thankfully!
Hope the walk went well and it wasn’t too wet. I love walking in London – can go for ages without too much hassle compared to walking in the countryside or more hilly towns (I like flat and lots of things to see).
Well done Bee on school councillor elections. Our school’s ones were last week for school council and sports council. N stood for sports council – there were 7 going for 2 places, vs 4 standing for 1 place on school council. I really hope he gets it, but as it’s voted, I doubt he will. It always seems to be the same child getting voted whenever there’s voting, and N’s too quiet for people to notice him over one or two really popular children. They don’t find out til Monday.
Thankfully the rain wasn’t too bad!
Hope he gets school councillor!
Love the trying to talk you into a dog for 4 weeks.
Yes I think I would resent the 4 weeks away as well. But suppose it is not feasible to take 4 weeks during term time for you and the girls. Maybe go for a week yourself when he gets back, see how keen he is then.
That map looks handy and informative

Can’t see myself being able to go away alone for a week!
Gosh I don’t envy you 4 weeks of solo parenting. But it’s hard when parents live abroad. Mine were over here for 6 days and we haven’t seen them since last May. The ice cream celebration sounds like a good idea and I hope the braces are settling ok for your daughter #365
To be fair he is usually always at work and do pretty much everything myself so doesn’t really bother me if I am solo parenting for 4 weeks. Braces are going ok!
I’ve no idea what is inside these LOL packages, only ever see the outside advertised as I’m guessing you don’t get a lot for your money.
Definitely don’t get a lot for your money!
I am not a fan of LOL dolls either. Well done Bee on the class councillor thats brilliant. I hope your strategy for the walk worked well.
Thank you..she is well chuffed!
What are LOL things exactly? Funny cat. Inshallah you’ll all go out to a holiday again (you did go recently to the cliffside place, I forgot the name) wow, Bee! You go, girl! The map looks cool! Your Bee is very smart and sneaky…

They are little dolls which I don’t think they are worth the money.
I mean a holiday abroad and not just in the same country.
