We’re back to routine this week and it feels good to still have the very lovely sunshine. We’re all looking tanned and the boys are getting browner by the day. We’ve also booked our holiday (hurrah!) and let the school know we’ll be taking Z out in a few weeks. Thankfully, they were perfectly lovely about it. We’ll still be fined though, as are the rules, but C’est la vie.
It’s the last few days of Ramadan and I always wonder how it’s flown by so quickly, whilst realising I’m really tired by this stage. I’m a bit sad to see it go too. It’s the end of what I like to call our quiet down time and I’ve learnt I need a bit of a reset from time to time. It’s a nice time to reflect and look back on how you’ve changed from this time last year. Of course, there’s lots of the same same and then there are bits where you realise you probably need to do a bit better. Maybe I’ll write about it all once it’s over. We’ll mostly be panic buying clothes and presents over the next few days. Hopefully the sun hangs about!
