Assalamualaikum and a very good day friends. Cant believe it that today is already Thursday which means the school break is almost over sob sob sob.



Kids are on study-mode holiday… and to tell you the truth, me and my other half really surprised that they REFUSED to go for holidays even for a day and insist on studying (I should be happy right?)… so in order to make sure that they really study and not distracted by other technologies gadgets…we decided to convert our dining table into study area….

Books books books and more books

Books books books and more books

Normally they study in their room which makes it impossible for me to monitor. So having them studying in the living room and having the study plan for the whole week which I personally made for them, it gives me some comfort that  they will insyaallah be a little bit more prepared for the coming exam.

Thank God that we do not have any visitors during this time...

Dining table full of books

So.. what do I do the whole week? Nothing much because I cant watch the TV as it will definitely going to distract them and I do not fancy going out as the temperature outside is about 39C already… so what do I do? … read books… ape lagi. Managed to finish 2 books and spent more time working with Haqeem on homework. Oh… besides that, making Milo ice cream for the kids everyday hehehe. Believe it or not, within this week alone 2kg of milo is gone! Help! Help! Help! My milo stock is depleted!
