Sunday Day 117 – 26th April
Today was extremely hard. Our alarms did not go off and we all missed breakfast before sunrise. The eldest’s alarm was late but we didn’t miss Fajr prayer. We missed the time to eat by 10 minutes. Hubby decided not to fast as he has to take some medications but myself and the eldest decided to go for it. I took it easy all day as I was concerned my blood sugars would go too low considering I wouldn’t be eating or drinking anything for 24 hours… but we managed to keep the full fast. This photo was taken later in the week but it is something I am doing every day which is reciting the Quran.
Monday Day 118 – 27th April
I like to get organised for Eid in advance so I am not having to rush around last minute and get things organised. I have already warned the girls not to expect lots of things or expensive things as with their dad not working we currently have no income and have to be careful. However I will stock up on chocolate! Got some personalised ones but the lady messed up their names by putting H at the end of both names! I messaged and she apologised saying next order she will send a free gift.
I also made shami kebabs myself for the first time today and was proud of myself. Usually my mum makes them and I just go and eat there! But lockdown is forcing me to make things!
Tuesday Day 119 – 28th April
Bee finally joined in with some online karate classes after fracturing her foot over 5 weeks ago. Told her to take it easy and had warned sensei that there might be some moves where she will just watch. It all went ok and she was glad to get back to it. Rosie of course had to get involved and get in the way. She soon ran out when nunchucks started flying around.
Wednesday Day 120 – 29th April
I had seen a local baker restart her business after initially shutting down and she was offering mini cupcake boxes. I knew her cakes are always delicious so got tempted and had to order, which she delivered today.
Thursday Day 121 – 30th April
Not much interesting happening today. Hubby managed to get a job with Hermes and went today. However he decided it wasn’t worth it. He had to work in the rain for 0.60p per parcel. After paying for his DBS, insurance etc and then diesel costs, it really wasn’t worth it. Myself and the girls had a quiet day at home – school work and then just chilling.
Friday Day 122 – 1st May
I had won a giveaway for chocolate covered dates which arrived today! Impatiently waited for sunset so could try them and they were delicious! I also got the nephew to drop off the spare TV at my mums house. Have set it up in the conservatory with the kids Wii and its perfect for when I want a bit of peace…just let them play games and shut the door on them!
Saturday Day 123 – 2nd May
So glad to see it being a sunny day today. Was tired of the rain and it was affecting my mood. My clematis is beginning to look good. Did a bit of weeding and tidy up of the garden. Found a dead baby bird in the grass. It looks like it was only a few days old….the girls buried it. We also spent some time playing some board games which we had been sent by Spin master.

Well done for fasting even when your alarms didn’t go off.
The chocolate looks fab and good on your making the kebabs.
I’m glad Bee’s first karate lesson after her injury went well.
Those cakes really do look good and the chocolate covered dates.
That’s a shame about the job for your hubby. It doesn’t seem worth it at all. x

Definitely doesn’t seem worth it!
What a nightmare about missing sunrise! You did very well to manage the full 24 hours fast. The delivery job definitely sounds like more trouble than it is worth for that sort of money.
It’s good to see Bee back at karate. Those mini cupcakes look amazing. Your clematis is looking lovely too.

Yes it is good to get her back to being active
shame about the personalised chocolate, will the H come off them both?
Oh dear at your husband having no income, can he claim on the self employed payouts the government are doing?
Wow so you went 48 hrs without eating? Well done you.
Those cupcakes look nice, and I love dates, I would eat the dark chocolate ones.

Not sure about the payouts….I haven’t looked into myself…I think he will get some.
Not it was 24 hours. So from 8pm to 8pm the following day
It has been strange after all that sunny weather to have some rain. Thankfully not too much of it here. Those chocolate covered dates look delicious (although I don’t like dates).
We had loads of rain! The dates are delicious!
I have loved seeing your posts on this .

I am still waiting for our clematis to flower, it is stubbornly refusing at the moment. Sorry to hear that the job was no good – I have no idea how people make money from it
Doesn’t make sense…they must deliver a lot of parcels
Those cupcakes look amazing! It’s nice some places are opening up again isn’t it. Feels like we are getting back to some kind of normal!
Yes slowly we seem to be getting there
The clematis is so pretty. Love those mini cupcakes and the chocolate-covered dates look delicious. Glad that Bee is starting to be able to join in with her karate class again. #project366
Clematis always look pretty!
The TV conservatory set up sounds like a good idea, shame about the spelling on the chocolate bars, and those mini cupcakes looks lovely. good to hear Bee was able to do some online karate.

Hubby seems to have claimed the TV for himself now!
I didn’t wake up for Sehri once too; I was exhausted by the end of it but managed to complete it. The cover of the Quran is lovely. The chocolate covered dates look so tempting. My sibling is also becoming a chef during this lockdown (also recently learnt how to make shami kebabs). It’s good to know Bee’s getting better and yep, Rosie should definitely not mess with her. Cute little cupcakes. The clematis look pretty. Rest in peace, bird.

I think some of us may end up really good chefs at the end of this!
Hope your husband has more luck on the job front soon. The Hermes job doesn’t sound like it would be worthwhile. I don’t envy you getting up early every day to get your breakfast in.

Some people manage to make it work for them
Those chocolate dates look amazing, I would eat them all in one sitting. Glad the foot is better and she can join in her online classes again! #project365 (sorry it’s late)
I was tempted to eat them all in one go!
Those cakes and chocolates look amazing. Glad Bee’s karate lesson went well after her injury. xx
