Wedding Shopping

I don't usually enjoy shopping much, but yesterday evening I had a blast. My jilbab's for the wedding turned up. I ordered from Al-Hijaab who do next day delivery. They didn't have much in my size, so I ordered this for the wedding and this to arrive in Pakistan in. (What I really hankered after was this, which wasn't in stock).

I only had that day to get the kids stuff and ended up getting beige suits for my boys and my nephew (£25 each from East Ham - very reasonable). I wanted (as Kooky Sis put it) Little Lady to be the belle of the ball, so I chased round my local shopping centre looking for the perfect dress. I couldn't find anything under £50, so decided to spend the money and get her something special. I ended up in Debenhams where the ankle-length dress marked £50 turned up at £13 at the till, so I bought this one too for £13. I found a nice tiara to go with it at Claires. Will pick up a nice dress for my neice, a turquoise shayla and some shoes for myself this morning.

I have butterflies now and Little Man loves planes so can't wait to show him a real one. Just have to get all of our luggage through check-in somehow including the humungous generator better half is insisting on taking with him.

Will post pics if I can, please keep us in your dua's.


  1. زَوَّدَكَ اللَّهُ التَّقْوَى، وَغَفَرَ ذَنْبَكَ، وَيَسَّرَ لَكَ الخَيْرَ حَيْثُمَا كُنْتَ

    This is my dua to you as a traveller Zawwadaka Al-Lahu At-Taqwá, Wa Ghafara Dhanbaka, Wa Yassara Laka Al-Khayra Ĥaythumā Kunta.

    ‘May Allah endow you with taqwa, forgive your sins and facilitate all good for you, wherever you be.’
