Eid Preparation

Have spent yesterday evening cleaning and cooking and continue this morning, but there is work done begrudgingly and work done with a song in your heart and cooking for Eid definitely falls into the latter.

I finally got out this bedspread which I bought when I was in Pakistan, it looks lovely but Little Man is not impressed and is insisting we get rid of it because the embroidery feels itchy.

Little Lady insisted in staying awake until I did her henna (nearly 11.30) despite being sleepy from all of the excitement.

I got my old Eid Mubarak banner out again. I made this on the plain back side of a "Congratulations" banner with letters cut out from paper and coloured-in. (the store-bought ones are amore recent affair).

I got hubby and brother-in-law to put up the balloons (although they kept popping them and scaring the kids). I packed my gifts for everyone and stashed them in the front room.

I found myself something nice to wear (although I never did get round to ironing it).

Now for the big cook-out.


  1. Eid mubarak!
