Oh, there was also one more cleanup after the kids had gone to bed, a few hours in the kitchen and a great pile-up of ironing, but that wasn't glamorous enough to warrant a picture.
Can't wait to see the kids reactions in the morning to the balloons and decorations insh'Allah or for my extended family to visit.
My local masjid has announced Eid whereas unfortunately my Dad's local masjid which is ten minutes further away have decided not to celebrate Eid tomorrow, which means I will have to wait a day to go and see my mum and sisters (although I have asked them to come to dinner tomorrow - they can't say their Eid hasn't started yet then!). Little Lady is rather cross that her beloved grandparents won't be celebrating in the morning with her - Idecided to refrain from explaining moonsightings and theological differences to her and told her to ask her granddad (not passing the buck or anything...).
EID MUBARAK EVERYONE!!
