Hello mellow people! It’s Friday! ❤️- Yes I thought I’d be sleeping a little longer today but just like every other working weekday, I was up at 6:30 am. Nayel’s sound asleep next to me- so I’m thinking to grab a cup of chaye to kick start the day!
The week began with enveloping this beautiful Pashmina shawl that Huzaifa got for me from his 3 day trip to Pakistan. He went for a friend’s wedding with his gang and travelled to 6 cities by road all the way up to Naran – the Notheren beauty of Pakistan. Boys are crazy! This shawl is a hand made piece from Naran 😍- very soft and light.
It was Pakistan’s independence day on the 14th – and we celebrated it in a fun way! If you follow me on instagram, you’ll know all the details about it! If you don’t- join me now @frommummytonayel ❤️. My cousins and sister here in Dubai with our kids, all got dressed up in green. We had an amazing time at the Castello Restaurant. The patriotic ambiance and the food- both were great!
I got a chance to flaunt my Azadi bag from @womaniyadesigns for Pakistan’s 70th 🇵🇰.
That was my favorite chicken tikka boti at Castello Restaurant. It was served with some koyla dhuwan ( coal bbq smoke).
I have been craving meetha (sweets) alot! No No , I’m not pregnant lol- It’s just some working mama hormones. I tried this Chocolate chip cookie jar from spinneys- I won’t say they’re a super hit, but a good •8 aed• munch to have with chaye ☕️. I still love my homemade ones more. I think I’ll bake them this weekend.
But the packing is so cute! That it what actually tempted me to grab one jar!- so cute 💜
Nayel’s been cooperating well with my new routine. Allhamdullilah.
He’s been waking up with me in the morning and we drop him at my sisters place- where after having breakfast he naps until noon! Which is great. Except this week – where his grandparents volunteered to come over and spend time with Nayel for two days! It was such a nice thing! Nayel really had fun playing and bossing them around while mama was at work. Not to forget, I loved coming home to garam garam khana (lunch)made by Nayel’s dadijan❤️❤️❤️
Meanwhile -my works been really busy! I love being in classroom once again! I’m just working for the next two weeks more and then back to being a home- mama. We’ll get back to play date sessions and mummy blog events very soon! 😍
Have a great weekend everyone!
Eat. Pray . Sleep- most importantly spend time with your family! 💜
