April 2010

Imran is away on a week long school trip. I'm missing him terribly and the house is way too quiet!!

Here he is all packed up & ready to go.



In the school hall with his friend Arjun & mum Jag.



With his buddy Roshan as they walk to board the coach.



I know he's going to have a wonderful time at Glasbury and I look forward to hearing about it. But I'm going to miss his goodnight kisses! Love my boy.

Pancake Day

I love Pancake day!! Usually we're all in the kitchen tossing our pancakes but this year I decided to make savoury rather than the normal lemon & sugar. So I adapted a recipe & came up with chicken & pesto pancakes. They were a hit with the family except Imran as he just wanted his lemon & sugar!!! Can't please them all can you!



Also sharing with you an altered letter I'd made for a friend's birthday. What do you think?



Our friends' Najma & Soyab came over from California for a flying visit so we all arranged to go out for a meal. It was a great evening with wonderful food.

Snow Days

Hey how great. We finally got a heavy snowfall!! It's been quite a few years since our last real snowfall, the news is saying about 18 years! Wheesh that long really? We've had some snow in the past few years but not "the whole country grinds to a standstill" type!

It all started lste Sunday afternoon. By the evening Hussein & Kaizer were out in the street with the neighbours having their first of many snowball fights.

That night it snowed constantly and we woke up on Monday morning to this:



The news reported that the bus service in London was suspended due to the snow. So obviously that meant no school. Kids were very happy of course.
Their cousins came round a little after 9 and the rest of the day was spent having loads of snowball fights. I did ask the kids to help Imran make a snowman but they were more interested in pelting each other! They even got me a few times till I went back indoors. Then I was on hot chocolate making duty!! Nothing changes eh.

Today was a bright sunny day and the snow has started to melt. Kids & I go back to school tomorrow (me for the first time in 3 weeks eek).
But the weather forecast says we may have more snow later this week, up to 10 inches OMG!!!! So Imran might get his snowman after all. Fingers crossed.
