My cliched weekend

Khadijah fed me with this song when it first came out and have been listening to it ever since.....And I really liked it the first instance!

Weekend was, as usual, hectic....Spent most of the time with, you guessed it right - kids. Saturday was a Swan Lake marathon with Hajar whilst Sunday was Incredibles' turn. Almost memorized the script to both.

Yusof and Khadijah went to watch The Sorcerer's Apprentice with their cousin, Afiq, at Wangsa Walk, and they had fun. Yusof's main reason for this outing is basically to bond with his cousin; which I think was very thoughtful of him. This time they went without us save that we dropped them and picked them up.You could see the animated looks plastered all over their faces when I picked them up. I guess it's time to slowly let go of my kids now that they are now almost 13 and 16 respectively...but of course within set limits. I remember, when I was 12, I used to paint Batu Pahat Town red all the time...supermarkets, bookshops, magazine stalls, friends' houses, library (whatever happend to neighbourhood libraries?). I have been psyching-up myself to face this very day. Well, it's all about trust and whether you have taught them and equipped them well, innit? I did quite well I must say, not a single phone call was made from myphone to check on them.

On my personal end, my grandiose plan for Sunday was shot to bits...Well, Man proposes God disposes. Insya Allah it wil be done slowly....

Normalcy reigns...

(picture : courtesy of Khadijah)

I can heave a sigh of relief now that normalcy has crept back in to our lives . It's my first posting of the year..I haven't blogged about our not-so-new addition..Neither have I corrected the misrepresentation of this blog...These two were actually the main obstacles which have stopped me from continuing to diarize my account of our lives for posterity..

So, the year has been horrible...- passing on of my beloved and only sister, being conned, maidless etcetera. I however have accepted this with utmost redha. I'm moving on with life and deal each day as it confronts me. I'm deeply humbled....

On the brighter side of things....Alhmdulillah, by God's grace, He has given us good health, good life as a whole and His abundance of Baraqah, kept us within permissible line and constantly reminded us of our duites and obligations to Him...What more can one ask?

Keeping my fingers crossed thatPraying that I will have the time to update more often.....

on my mind certainly constantly
