After the big iftar of yesterday, I wanted to keep it light at suhoor. So I looked through the cupboards and found something I hadn’t eaten in years…:
I don’t know about other peoples households but this was something I chomped on for most days as a kid. Then, as the years progressed it begame an Andy whilst we grew fascinated with the Buzz lightyears. So my brother must have bought it, as he’s on his health kick, and I got to enjoy the simple taste (not flavourless taste like haters say!) of Cornflakes 😀
It rained again today. The sky was dark making it feel like it would be sunset soon. Then then the rest of the day took a u-turn and the sun came out to play again. Although there’s still roughly 6 more weeks of school left, I’m reminded of my own summer school days. Especially those summers from when Ramadan was in the shorter days of the winter and I would come home to break my fast after watching some CITV 😀 The generation now that is fasting whilst doing their GCSE’s or A Level exams have it tough. I’ve thankfully escaped the trial of fasting and doing an exam. But a niece of mine has had to struggle through her exams this summer. I hope she’s coping well 🙂
But with the mercy of the rain, the temperature was cooler and I felt like I could get some cleaning done. It was time to clean out the budgies cage and I remembered then that my family had decided to give them up. What looked cute in a shop window is now a nuisance. I thought I was loud but these birds compete for our attention all day long. As a family, we’ve decided to sell them.
So I got them and the cage looking handsome, and took some pictures for my Gumtree ad:
If by chance anyone is interested in purchasing Lola and Freddie (cage, sanded sheets, seeds, feeding pots for water and food and mirror toy ALL part of the purchase) please get in touch. You can look up the ad under 2 budgies for sale 🙂
And after putting up the ad, I was bombarded with Ramadan memes from friends. I love a good meme and I thought I would share some of the memes that I can connect a story to.
Today’s iftar was a request made by older bro: he was missing pasta.
There were also mature (dad doesn’t like young ones) chicken nuggest that dad decided to make last minute, meaning the house till now (past midnight) smells of burnt oil. Mum tried to stop him, considering it was fried and would take ages since it needed to be made on low heat , but he was adamant on feeding us *shrugs*
And as a treat, I made:
