but nobody is in. That is exactly how I feel at the moment. The automatic pilot is on and I just follow some inner mechanism that tells me what to do and in what order. Subhanallah I have been back less that twenty four hours and I’m already in need of a break.
Today has been one of those endless days spent running about like a headless chicken: food shopping (is there anything more unwelcoming that the inside of a fridge after a holiday?), uniform shopping for the girls, school stuff shopping, including the so-hated-by -moi lunch bags (I come from ‘walk home for a healthy lunch break’ kind of place remember?), looking for a good butcher to buy meat from as to my dh’s horror our usual butcher was not there and some strange looking guys were behind the counter instead. Omg I’m tired just listing all the things I have managed today mashallah. Let me think what else I have done today…maybe not.. but you get the idea, don’t you?
I’m still in shock, trying to get used to the idea of tomorrow being the first of Ramadan inshallah, alhamdulilah. I am not complaining…For some unexplainable reason dh and I were pretty sure that Ramadan was not till Wednesday or Thursday. Had I not decided to read a few posts before going to bed last night dh and I would have turned up at work with lunch box and all. It does not bear thinking.
Tomorrow is also the beginning of a new school year for me. I am looking forward to welcoming the new class on Tuesday inshallah. May Allah give me and the little ones a good year, full of fun and a relaxed environment where lots of good work takes place.
I now have to plan the first week’s teaching so I will leave the post about my hols for another time but I leave you some pics. Enjoy
