This is for you 'on the edge'

A mix of life and a lack of a reliable internet connection at home, I have found myself doing other things like cleaning (booooring) and organising and cooking and kids and all housey stuff, quickly check my facebook on the mobile, not really even checking my e-mails, last time i looked there was something like 600 unread mail!!!
Any ways. Happy Eid to all, especially 'on the edge' ;)

My eid was pretty much uneventful, the usual will it be thursday or friday business, along with the rest of Libya's population...what a mess!!!
It was a good eid, organised this year by me... Yep, I took the initiative and made sure we stuck to the plan, I thought it went well anyway....didn't have any comments from the rest of the clan, good or bad!

everything else is going ok, my daughter's been ill so hasn't been to school, its just the flu, but i didn't want to send her to school as I've been told that there has been a case of swine flu, don't want to take any risks.

Potty training my nearly 3 year old, its taking ages, not enjoying that at all.

Its Ramadan again!! seems like only yesterday it had finished, and here we are agin 11 days into it.

Ramadan Kareem to all...

I must admit though, its been so much easier with me not working this year. I'm enjoying it more, don't feel so stressed all the time or in a hurry to get everything finished on time...because I have more time.
I'm still with them downstairs, however with me being so mellow these days they don't really seem that bad anymore...
I'm a happier person inside now....and people have noticed...I must have been a really moody miserable cow, cause people are really commenting on how better I look, and how fresher I am...blah blah blah...

Anyway, whatever anybody else thinks...I just feel so much better.

finding the time..

I don't know how other bloggers do it, finding time to blog. It was easier when I was working as I'd take a break from work and check on my e-mails and blog and do all my online bits and pieces, but now, when I take a break from work, thats house work, kids, and the usual lady of the house stuff all I want to do is sit like a zombie for a while and just not have to think, even then I get interrupted  by a thirsty child, a child that wants the loo, or just a child that wants to sit on my lap, or behind me or over me.... (sigh)

Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying spending time with them, but I think I need to make a bit more me time...

Well...I'm being interrupted again....

You know sometimes when you sit down and can't help smiling to your self, that feeling of content and happiness that sometimes you get blessed with once in a while. I've had this now for a while, I'd say a week or so. 
Nothing special has happened to me, I'm at home now and not working, but I have a feeling of being satisfied with how my life is at the moment, I love this feeling, I want it to last forever, I know it won't because I know me so well, always trying to find something to moan about. However I'm enjoying it while it lasts, don't want to hold on to it too tightly in fear of it slipping away, but just lightly inhaling this amazing haze surrounding me.

Still alive.

Just wanted to let people know that I am still alive, just have had limited access to internet, apart from the mobile.

Anyway, all is well, I have stopped working and am now at home with the kids. Its great, waking up in the morning, early i might add as I have to get my daughter ready for school, have my coffee and breakfast with my son, I feel relaxed and less stressed, I have more patience and much more time to do things that I keep putting off. I wonder how long this will last, before I start getting bored.

Living Side by Side...

Is this the closest we get to coexistence.

And we continue to stand back and watch...

We can close our eyes and pretend that nothing is going on,
we can stop watching and carry on with our lives as normal,
we have a choice....
what do they have....
