Sunday 9th May – Day 128
Didn’t have much planned today so decided to start putting up the Eid decorations as didn’t want to be doing it all the night before and tiring myself out. The decorations were gifted by Anafiya Gifts.
Monday 10th May – Day 129
Another quiet day. Had a wander round the garden and pleased to see a lot of colour. I can’t do much gardening this time as I end up with aches and pains..will have to get the girls to help with weeding again once Ramadan is over.
Tuesday 11th May – Day 130
I had ordered the Eid range from Chocolateeha which arrived today. She does some different flavours like Mango and Lime so had to give them a try. Bee also took the chocolates I had got last week for her classmates to school today and they were well received. She had a few left over which she gave to her teachers too.
Wednesday 12th May – Day 131
Saudi Arabia have declared Eid for Thursday. However our mosque generally follows Morocco’s moon sighting and usually they are one day after. So I was fully expecting Eid to be on Friday. I decided to do the girls Henna with the stencils I got last week and so glad I did as at 9.30pm our mosque made the announcement on FB that was Eid for us is tomorrow too. So a mad rush to get everyones clothes ironed, and Bee blinged up with her nail polish too. I also managed to complete the Quran today. I finished it in the morning as there was always the slight chance we would celebrate tomorrow.
Thursday 13th May – Day 132
Eid celebrations. Mainly just cooking and eating really. Weather wasn’t great so stayed at home. The eldest had asked for some books which I got her and Bee had asked for a Nintendo Switch game, Animal Crossing, which she spent pretty much all day playing. Also went and got a Scalextric set for her to play with….some of the reviews hadn’t been great but she loved playing with it. I don’t go crazy with gifts and generally stick to one or 2 things each. I don’t want Eid to end up to be just about loads of presents.
Friday 14th May – Day 133
Sadly even though celebrations continue for 3 days, the school only authorise 1 day off school which is a shame. So the girls went back to school, hubby went back to work and I was alone at home again. Some popcorn arrived which I had ordered through the Vodaphone app as only had to pay postage. The milk chocolate ones are so good. I also asked the nephew to get the moses basket out of my parents attic so I can check its quality. If it’s in a bad state I wanted to order one I had seen on offer…..but it was still in excellent condition….so will just wipe it down and wash the covers. Reluctant to buy new as the girls only spent a couple of months in it…neither of them really liked it. Ordered a new mattress for it and sheets…..slowly beginning to buy things now.
Saturday 15th May – Day 134
All of us feeling a bit ‘meh’. Bee said she wasn’t feeling great and she felt a bit warm….decided not to send her to karate…she clearly didn’t want to go and I didn’t fancy taking her either. So a day of cleaning, TV and games including her new Scalextric and not much else. I am continuing to research pregnancy and vaccine. I was sure I wasn’t going to have it but now with the new strain and talk of it spreading quickly I am nervous again and unsure what to do. Feel like I am constantly going round in circles with my decision.

Your Eid decorations are so pretty and the Henna looks fab. Well done on completing the Quaran.
It sounds like you had a good Eid. That’s rubbish the school only let them have one day off. x

It was a quiet Eid but nice. x
Love the henna. That popcorn looks delicious. I love milk chocolate popcorn. Such a treat. My brother had a scalextric. They’re brilliant toys.
I will be getting more of it I think, it was so nice
Some great photos of your Eid celebrations. I think Castle Park near us hosted a prayer session on Thursday morning. The Indian variant is worrying. I hope you can settle your mind on what to do for the best #365

Our local park usually does outdoor prayers but they weren’t allowed, although makes more sense to pray outdoors rather than indoors.
Hope you all enjoyed your Eid celebrations, the henna looks lovely. I always admire them. We have the same clematis in our garden, its full of flowers at the moment #365
Thank you, it was a quiet one but nice.
Happy Eid. Love the decorations and the girls’ henna. Well done for managing to finish reading the Quran. It’s a shame that school only authorise one day off. Chocolate covered popcorn sounds delicious – I’ll have to look out for that. The Scalextric set looks like fun. Good luck with making a decision about the vaccine. #project365
Definitely give that popcorn a try!
Hope you all enjoyed your Eid celebrations I am sorry that the school only allowed the girls one day off school. The henna looks lovely and popcorn sounds yummy. Hope you make a decision you are happy with asap. It must be a very difficult one and I am not sure what I would do. ..

Eid celebrations were nice thank you!
Glad you had a nice EID, shame it was only one day off school, it’s the same for us here in Dubai. My husband had almost a week off for EID but at Christmas he has to take leave. Hope you are able to reach a decision in regards to the vaccine that you’re comfortable, the pregnant people in our family at the moment have been vaccinated, 2 nieces and a DIL. Hope this baby enjoys the moses basket, love baby shopping.

Don’t always get given the time off requested sadly. My brother asked for a day off for Eid and wasn’t given it.
