Every squabble that morning was followed up by a new chore. Thankfully they realised -fairly soon that this was no fun and got on with homework and occupying themselves.
That meant I could get all my laundry, cooking, cleaning and shopping finished by midday. I treated myself by taking everyone to my mums and treating myself to a new book, a walnut whip, a buttery sultana cookie and my last coffee before Ramadan starts, in the nice mug I bought my mum but which I use myself every time I go to her house. I didn't fancy starting Ramadan with two days of coffee withdrawal headaches, so have stopped having my morning coffee. I felt sleepy this afternoon at work, but had plenty to keep myself busy and will hopefully not miss it after a few days.
