Letting it all out

My apologies for no posting's for a while again (sigh), when am I going to get this whole 'blogging with discipline' thing going that I've so proudly placed on my sidebar, to be honest my blogging mood goes up and down, some days I feel so enthusiastic to post something on my blog, but then other days, zero, nilch, almost a bit like how I'm feeling now. Sometimes I also don't feel motivated to post anything, when it seems like I'm just blogging to myself, I'm sure we all like to recieve comments, even a few words of encouragement, salaams, or any kind of feedback, and I do appreciate those who have left comments on my blog, you know who you are, maybe I'm craving a bit more interaction on my blog, maybe I need to make more interesting posts, as I know I'm not the best of bloggers.

A few times I have had thoughts of calling it a day with this blog, and I'm not saying this as a cry for sympathy or attention, I just need to get these things out, instead of just thinking them, that's what this blog is for isn't it? when I think like that, I try to cast it aside and stop feeling sorry for myself, and instead try harder with my blog, but as you can see when I've got all these feelings going on in me, the whole blogging thing gets more and more put to the side (another 'big' sigh ). Alhamdulillaah I have quite a few followers now, but I don't know who's reading and who's not, would be nice to hear from you :)

Anyway, enough of moaning for one night, I just want to say that we're soon to be moving back to Wales insha Allaah, this has been on the cards for a while now, but went down to Cardiff a couple of weeks ago to see some houses, and saw one I really liked, actually it's just by our old house, so we'll be in a very familiar location :) The main focal points of the house are the kitchen and bathroom (it's huuuge!!) Masha'Allaah, and very modern, so right now we're not getting alot of home learning done, the packings mainly down to myself, hubby's busy trying to get the house painted (to cover all the scribbles on the walls and grubby little fingerprints :D ).

We will be moving on the 28th April insha Allaah, which is just a little over 3 weeks, I have so much to do, but as usual being very laidback about it all, :D I was determined with this move to get things done asap and well before the moving date, as yet I haven't done too bad, but if I don't get a move on now, it will probably be alot of last minute, throw everything in boxes packing!! It certainly won't be the first time :D Well, I'm now gonna leave you with a few pics of what the girls have been up to lately, and please I hope no one has taken any offence with anything I've written in this post, that's not what I intended.
