Sunday Day 187 – 5th July
Another week of ever changing weather so not much planned again. Today was just a very uneventful Sunday. Checked the plants in the garden and my hydrangeas are doing very well.
Monday Day 188 – 6th July
A bit of sun today so while the sun was out got Bee to dress us up in the dress she received last week from Childrensalon, so I could take some pictures. She will be wearing it at Eid which is in about 3 weeks. Also managed to get a blog post and an IGTV done on the book My Hajj and Eid ul Adha Coloring book. In the afternoon had a school governors meeting via Teams.
Tuesday Day 189 – 7th July
I did a post on instagram about how I was struggling with my prayers and not being able to focus. One of my followers for a long time reached out and said she would like really to gift me a book that helped her. It arrived yesterday and today I started to read it and it already made me think after just a couple of chapters. I do say how toxic social media can be, but at the same time there is also friendship and sisterhood. Also managed to get a blog post done in my Muslim Mums in Business series, featuring Khaista Arts.
Wednesday Day 190 – 8th July
A quiet day….some school work and games in the morning while I had another governors meeting on Teams, and then an afternoon of watching TV. Rosie snuggled up to Bee while she played games.
Thursday Day 191 – 9th July
One of those days where I just got up in a foul mood and didn’t want to do anything. Let the kids get on with their school work and then play on the wii or whatever they wanted to do while I just hid for most of the afternoon in my room. Then in the evening it was Bee’s karate so had to venture out to take her. Hubby arrived home with some mitai (sweets) which his friend had sent to celebrate his sons engagement. Not ideal when you are trying to control your sugar levels! This is the second lot of sweet boxes in two weeks!
Friday Day 192 – 10th July
Feeling really fed up with the rubbish weather. The sun was out first thing but then got cloudy again. The horrible weather really does affect my mood. Feeling so lost these days as to where my life is heading….and don’t know what to do.
Managed to get a review blog post live about Harry Potter Magical Capsules and then pretty much did nothing else except watch TV.
Saturday Day 193 – 11th July
A busy morning. The karate sessions are returning back near to normal. And will be indoors from 20th July. I decided to book Saturdays again. We used to go on a Saturday and frankly we have got so lazy again that we need to get out in the mornings. It is 10.30am so not as though it’s 9am but even then the eldest complained that I was making her get up early! We are usually up just after 9 most mornings anyway! It is nice to get some normality back….but I will admit that I am nervous as cases seem to be rising. Then popped over to the parents to see how they are doing as haven’t seen them for a few weeks.

Bee’s new dress is beautiful!
It sounds like your new book is already helping you. What a lovely gift from your friend.
Those sweets look amazing!
It sounds like things are getting a bit more back to normal life with the Karate lessons starting again. x

Definitely feels like a bit of normality!
So sorry to hear you are feeling a bit lost at the moment. I hope the book helps!
It must be nice to be getting back to something like normal with Bee’s karate. My kids do one sprint session a week with their coach on grass, but they have no access to the stadium (or jumping), we have no pakrun and no ballet classes!

Definitely good to get back into karate!
I am sure your parents will have enjoyed the visit.
Sorry to read you are feeling so cant be bothered at the moment,
Love the dress, very pretty, really suits her.

She loves the dress!
Ooh those sweets look amazing. My OH is the same – he burns so much working, he expects pudding after most meals, so there’s always sweet stuff in the house. I need to get back to my no sugar/healthier eating. N’s tennis is luckily outside, although his county tennis hasn’t started back yet because it’s usually 30 kids at a time across 3 – 4 courts, plus the younger group is about 50 kids, and indoors. Not sure they’d be able to manage the same outside. So they’ve just postponed those dates til post September
I guess its best to be safe and wait until September
The hydrangeas look beautiful. I love a deep shade of lavender. Bee looks beautiful in her dress. Very caring and supportive of the follower. The book looks amazing. OMG so much mithai! Yeah, it’s quite challenging to decide whether to eat it or not and how much if you’re diabetic. May you find your way. OoO Rick Riordan, I loved his Percy Jackson books!

Yes it was a very big box of mitai!
The dress looks beautiful – I love that shade of pink. H enjoyed those Rick Riordan books.

My eldest is enjoying them at the moment.
How do you manage to resist the sweet gifts your husband brings home? Love Bee’s dress she looks lovely in it. How lovely of your instagram follower to gift you the book to support your prayers, I hope it helps
I failed…I did end up eating some.
Such a pretty dress! 🙂
We have been the same, the weather was so up and down but it provided the time and excuse to have some downtime!
How thoughtful of your follower to send you such a lovely gift, I really hope it is helping! We have officially stepped into Summer Holidays this week so I am definitely feeling more lost than I was before. However, we are just going to enjoy the holidays as much as we can! Hope you are having a lovely week! Sim x

Yes thats what we are hoping to do…just enjoy them as much as we can!
Love the photo of your hydrangeas – they are so pretty. Bee’s dress is beautiful. Those sweets do look nice but yes, not ideal when you are trying to control your sugar levels! Lovely that the karate lessons will be returning to normal soon. #project366
The sweets are tempting!
That is such a beautiful dress glad she wanted to wear it again. That was very kind of your follower thinking of you and getting you a book that helped them. I think its nice to have days were we take things a bit slower, sometimes we speed through life so quickly, not taking enough time for rest.

Definitely good to have a few slow days!
Bee’s dress is gorgeous, and she looks absolutely beautiful. Glad to hear that someone has reached out for you on social media and sent you a book you find helpful.
Is that a stash of books for you? We haven’t read this series (yet). Got most of the first Riordan’s series, and the Magnus Chase series too (just read the first book recently, it is pretty good, but so long). And I also bought The boy at the back of the class for Eddie this week. I’ve read good reviews of it.
Getting sweets is not helpful, when you’re trying to cut down on sugar. But they do look tasty.
The books are for the girls…left for the eldest and right for the youngest
How kind of someone to send you a gift like that.
That dress is lovely, I love the pink. Sadly my teen won’t wear pink and frilly anymore.
We have gymnastics and ballet starting in real life again, which is so good. Glad your karate is starting back
I am wondering how long the pink will last. My teen liked it when she was young too and now can’t stand it
That is a beautiful dress, she looks gorgeous. Those Harry Potter toys look fabulous
They are pretty cute toys
So sorry to hear you are feeling a bit lost at the moment. I am feeling similar. I hope the book helps. It must be nice to be getting back to something like normal with Bee’s karate. My boys have enjoyed getting back into football xx
Definitely nice to get some normality
