The Latest!

I haven’t paid much attention to my blog since I got back from Hajj. I’ve been feeling spiritually uplifted and organising various tasks in my life.

I have some good news. I’ve got a flat! Alhamdulliah, Allah the Alighty has granted both my husband and I a wonderful 1 bedroom flat. The rent is reasonable and hubby is using all his time to decorate. He loves it and we are both happy. JazakAllah khair to all your duas.

There are lots of things I want to buy and have decided to go for a beige and chocolate brown theme with a twist of white, black and cream. The bedroom is green and yellow. I re-did the original colours of the bedroom, as I wanted to express my colourful side in one of the rooms. These colours seemed the best. I think I need to buy some useful boxes or cupboards to create room for all my clothes and bits and bob. Not much storage or general space so any advice? I ended buying a few abayas over the weekend. My sister recommended a shop, which sells beautiful abayas, and fortunately the sister was having a sale. I couldn’t resist. I spent more money than I should have!! Could have bought tables and chairs with it but I’m also trying to make an effort to feel and look gorgeous. I need to go and put some highlights in my hair! I used to go to the hair dresses every 8 weeks or when I felt depressed. Used to make me feel good for a few days but it never solved any problems. I was hoping naïvely, new hair- new life. How wrong was I?! Well, it felt like a good start for a bit and then the problems crept back in and the red highlights didn’t give me any inspiration on how to overcome them. If anything, they made me more silly! LOL

The next few months will probably be the most testing. InshaAllah, I will be starting IVF. I had the consultation with the doctor and I agreed with my husband I was ready to start the procedure asap. It’s going to be both an exciting and stressful time. The whole procedure will take 6 weeks. Please make dua that it’ll be successful!

Also, I’ve successfully applied for a new job! SubhanaAllah the baraka of Hajj has brought so many wonderful things. All the praise and thanks belong to Allah SWT. Allah the Almighty is so wonderful, caring and merciful. When one sabrs, one does get the reward from Allah SWT. I’m really happy with this new opportunity and InshaAllah, I will be doing policy work which should challenge me in new skills. Ameen. Please thank Allah in your duas for giving me and you all the rewards of life. I will of course do the same.

Okay, here's a difference between U.S. and UK English: When you said "I got a flat", my first thought was, "How is that good news? A flat tire on her car?" Flat = Apartment here I guess. :)

Good news one after another! ^^ I'm with you on the barakah as I've been getting tonnes of it ever since I came back from my pilgrimage last year.
