chilly days

Chilly days are about wrapping in winter woolies and snuggling by the fire with mugs of hot tea!

Kids get their wellies on to wade through the mud to school, how they hate them lol!!

Enjoying th epeace of no one here except baby and me! But spring is here and such days are rare, but how I love them when the occasionally reappear!


The beautiful veggies are here with the spring sunshine, oooh how I love them, the Uk just can’t compare! So much to choose from in what wewant to cook, Allah has blessed us in so many ways!

This is the time when we start to use the terrace, flor picnincing ,playing, reading or simply hanging the washing!

I hope where ever you are you are enjoying the spring weather, and I also apologise for my random ramblings!!!


4 months masha’allah

Baby is now 4 months old masha’allah, seems to be settling into something of a pattern. Leaving me feeling less harrassed and in such a rush to do the essentials! Which has coincided fantastically with my husbands niece going home after spending almost a year with us on and off!! Allah is most merciful, alhamdulileh.

I just love babies feet masha’allah.

We went away at the weekend to stay with sister in law, she lives up in the mountains at Bouira, It is just so beautiful at this time of year. The fresh is great and the kids were out from I dont know what time of the morning( before I woke!!!) until nightfall. The came home with rosey red cheeks, and a splattering of freckles !



It was nice to get out of the city and have some fresh air, the kids picked edible roots and stuff that looks like weeds and ate them, while dh fruitlessly looked for quail eggs.
