Getting Away



This weekend just gone i went to Skegness to get away from it all. I really needed to get  away after all the drama in my area.
We all had a lovely time. It went very quickly.





 Here are some pictures:

Gaza, My thoughts

I feel  a need to write about this because of all the horrible pictures and videos i keep seeing on my Facebook.
I am fasting and the last thing i need to see is upsetting scenes of innocent people being killed and mutilated.



My question is has Islam become too political?
 Yes i know Islam is a way of life and it has its own polities. but have we got so political that we have forgotten about the spiritual side, the side that bring up peace and calm in our crazy lives. This is the month to reconnect with our spiritual side to become closer to our creator.
But yet i am bombarded by these scenes of chaos, designed to make one angry and upset. Taking me away from the purpose of this beautiful month.

We should make dua for the people in Gaza and any other people who are oppressed in this world. Oppression in any form is unacceptable.
Stop posting the carnage and send donations to the charities helping these countries insha allah.




Here are some websites to charities for those who truly want to help;

We are

I am delusional.
To think that maybe,
 you wanted to be close,
that maybe,
we could be friends.
too understand each other.
instead you play a cruel joke.
Thinking your intentions.
honest and true.

I thought we would discover the world,
To learn about the people,
who live within it.
I thought maybe,
you would know me,
the way i wished to know you.

But no.

Your mind is closed,
your heart still locked.
To dumb to discover.
The world is full of amazing,
unique, individuals.

We Breathe,
We eat,
We love,
We care too much.
We like to speak
and be seen.

But you don't want to know.
You.
 just like the others,
Who judge without really knowing.
That I.
And the ones who are like me.
We are Just like you
Mortal.
vulnerable.
we are.....

Beauty Within

Beauty on the outside,
Is just a mask.
It doesn't define,
Who you are,
 on the inside.
The beauty within.
The person you are.
Is hidden away,
behind the skin.
Under the muscle and veins,
where it beats deep within.
And there it lies.
The true beauty,
that hides.
Only he who created it,
See's it's truth.
Only he knows what we hide.
The true beauty....
The Heart.
It beats to keep us alive.
And there deep within its beat
lye's our true character.

Another Door

"When one door closes,
another one opens."
Thats what they say.

what happens,
 when its time to close the door,
 It gets jammed.
 What happens when moving on,
 is too hard to do.
You know you have too,
 so you can become a better person.
The heart I have is a lonely place
 and it  aches very day.
 I always feel like someone has died.
 yet not one has.
I am filled with sorrow,
yet there is not logical reason why.
I need that door to shut,
so I can open the next.
And move on with my life

Weekend Drama





When i was in the kitchen Saturday morning getting myself a cup of tea, When i noticed i could hear a dripping sound. To begin with i thought it was the fridge freezer. I thought " don't tell me i need to call them out already for the fridge " as i have only had it for a couple of months. I listened to the fridge and it wasn't coming from there. I listened to the cooker, No, not there. Then i looked at the fake box wall by the sink, Its where i pipes are blocked in. I put my ear against it and listened.






Drip, Drip, Drip..   ohhh My pipes are leaking. There isn't not water on my floor but then i thought the neighbour down below mite have a flood, I'm sure the pipes run down there, In face I'm sure these pipes run through the whole building.

I went in the lounge and got the number for the outer hours number for the council.
In the end they came out about three times in the day, They were trying to find out where the leak was coming from.  And yes the pipes do run right through the building.
Apparently there was a blocked drain at the top of the building and it has just filters down through the flat's, In the late afternoon they had find the problem and said someone was coming to fix it, It was a flat upstairs.




 Meanwhile while my ceiling in the kitchen has started too leak and i had to get buckets out to collect the water, also water started to come into the cupboard under the sink so i had to keep mopping that up. I was hoping that everything was going to calm down after this. How wrong was i.








Nine o'clock on the night I'm watching TV, when i hear a noise, I put the TV on mute to listen.  The council were upstairs unblocking the neighbours drain, My sink started making bubbling noises, Oh no....... They are going to cause i flood down here.  Then the sound i was dreading " splash."  "what was that" i thought to myself, i knew what it was but nothing prepared me for the site that awaited me..





I went up stairs to look for the plumber and  Thank God i found him on the sixth floor. I told him what had happened. He did come down and sort of cleaned it. He said he would get the environmental health to come and clean it the next day....




The next day i phoned up and i was told that they don't work the weekend. There was no way i was waiting all weekend to get it cleaned up,so I ended up cleaning it myself.....
My MOM bless her came to help me. It a good  things i wasn't working that day because it took a good few hours to clean.

Thank God that it is over now.
