last few days

asalam alaikum

well alhumdilillah we are now into the last few days of ramadan and we are now getting ready for the eid ul fitr gatherings mashallah.

i have to get a few more prezzies for my older son and so inshallah everything will be wrapped up and done by tuesday.  i am making brekkie of course and it will be a nice simple one with different varities of flavours to go with the pancakes that i will do, some with rose water, orange blossom and of course the good old chocolate and some cream will be nice.  

as for the night before eid i am doing a large meal with leg of lamb with mixed roasted vegetables and spicy potatoes inshallah.   i will make some dessert, im still inbetween gulab jamun, mhellebiah, or a trifle, all hand made of course no shop brought, i love making desserts.

hubby and elder son will be going to the mosque and inshallah on thier return on eid we are going out for a meal in the evening inshallah. i have saved for almost a month with just 50p,20p,10p. and so far have saved 37.70 which will make a great contribution towards the meal.

also this ramadan have finally set a donation for islam channels dawah project  to help with the all that goes on there.  i have also set up standing orders for muslimaid and will also inshallah help someone less forntuate .  i am also thinking of sponsoring a child but im still checking on my income first, and i will inshallah do this at the end of the month when i know i have a little extra coming and so i can use it to send to the orphan that i sponsor.

well that all for now as its getting closer to iftar and time for me to get the bits and bobs on the table.

so all take care

wa salam
