Here in Birmingham, the test was originally to be on 5 November...and up until yesterday, no-one knew whether Eid would be on the 5th or the 6th...so after a little bit of persuasion, Birmingham moved the test date to the 12th November instead
Now we know Eid will be on Sunday 6th lol, but I am still very glad the test was moved as ds will be fasting on the Saturday.
So for us there is no sense of relief that it is over but Eid is an opportunity to try and forget the pressure for one day!
We alternate between Asian and English Eids in our household (being from both backgrounds) so this Eid will be Roast Chicken with Yorkshires and the works, followed by sticky honey pudding and custard
. Actually this is less hassle than all the pakoras, samosas, etc, and just as filling!
Then I guess it will be a trip out to the park if dry or stay in and play games if not...
I'm still contemplating whether to squeeze in a maths paper before dinner (evil laugh emoticon) (only joking).
Went shopping yesterday but despite the economy, there were few bargains to be had
I'm now trying to complete my Eid shopping online, and was just about to buy a remote-controlled tarantula in order to fend off my in-laws when I got distracted
PS - I use paper plates and cups on Eid, despite having a dishwasher. Sorry, environmentalists out there. Eid is for Mums too, you know
