It’s official…

I’m not a kept woman anymore.Actually, I will continue to be a kept woman but only for two months…

Alhamdulilah, two days ago I was offered a teaching position in a primary school. For obvious reasons I am not going to say much about the place except that it is a muslim school, alhamdulilah and that the victims children 😉 in my class will be a little bit younger than the ones last year. This year I will be teaching a year 1 class.

I am really looking forward to a new beginning. I was shown round the school this morning and instantly fell in love with my classroom. I can not wait to get in there tomorrow and start arranging the furniture and adding my own personal touches to the place.

Plenty of time left till the start of term as we don’t start until after Eid, inshallah. What a blessing to work in a muslim environment, mashallah. Alhamdulilah I have always had time off work during the holly month and other important muslim  dates.

And now as customary I leave you with some pics of my holidays in the Basque Country.

Any idea what grandpa and the little girls are doing? Let me give you a clue…

That’s right, collecting/picking (not sure what the right word is) snails. Nobody in the whole entire world cooks them better than my dad. Yum! 🙂

And snails were not the only thing that we picked. On another one of our beautiful and relaxed outings we picked  juicy, sweet berries. Lots and lots of them.

The break was good mashallah but it is also good to be back. Alhamdulilah I feel fully recharged and  stress free. Let’s see how long that lasts…

Ramadan mubarak to all my muslim readers and hasta pronto,
