I woke up aaramtee this morning, Zahrah had only cried a couple of times at night, and Suleman had a late Thursday start. We had breakfast together before Zahrah woke up. Breakfast nearly always consists of cheese on toast (not the melted kind) with lots of black pepper sprinkled on top, or boiled egg on toast whisked up with lots of yummy yummy mayo. Once in a while we have a mega fryup which leaves me burping sausages all day, gotta love those!
Suleman left for work and Zahrah woke up. We went through our usual morning routine, opening the curtains, having a look through the window, baby breakfast, bubble bath and of course, listening to her favourite nasheeds on YouTube :)
I had a few things to pick up from the mall so off we went. The weather was fabulous today, not a cloud in sight. There is still an ever so slight chill in the air so I know the cold hasn’t totally disappeared, but compared to last weeks sudden snowstorm, today was more like a hot summers day. I love having the mall so close to my apartment. It’s actually just across the road so no matter what the weather, I always have somewhere quick and convenient to spend time.
The mall was packed out today, everyone was taking advantage of the sunny weather. I really felt like some ice cream and decided a strawberry sundae from macd’s would do the trick. the queue was crazy long but by some miracle the ice cream machine was working today (normally it’s buggered) so it was worth the wait. Zahrah and I sat at the food court, to her delight I took her out of the buggy and sat her on the table. We had such a fun relaxing time making faces and eating icecream. She shouted and waved at different strangers as usual, and I beamed with pride as everyone told me how cute she was (masha’Allah x1000000000000000!!!) It’s times like this I wish I carried me camera with me, just so I can capture the little everyday moments that mean so much.
Next stop was Zellers where we picked up a bargain bathtime story book (those waterproof thingys). I absolutely adore their childrens book section. It’s usually 80% off and I’ve purchased some fabulous find. She has quite the book collection now, I hope she grows up to be a bookworm just like me! Finally we headed home just in time for nap time for Zahrah, and Indian tea and bad daytime TV for me!
