Major Accomplishment!

Apparently Dd(5) doesn't need me to teach her anymore......

''I don't need to be homeschooled any more.....I already know how to do school'' she said,

I think that should be world news and wow I must have done a great job! hehe

Back on the blogosphere!

Assalamu 'alaykum,

I haven't updated the blog recently as I went away to my mum's in Wales, had a nice break alhamdulillaah, I think I needed it. Just trying to settle back into life in Brum now, and get back into my normal routine insha Allaah. So watch this space!
