| Sunday 12th:
Wow, it has been such a busy week that my head feels back to front!
First off, Friday was Eid! So Eid Mubarak to all Muslims everywhere.
So, to summarise the past week: I started going to the physics and maths classes with my friend, but I stopped after a couple of sessions because it was just too early in the morning. Then, we had to register with the school on the 8th, and I didn't have my papers ready (my brother was supposed to register on the 6th, and he didn't have the right papers either).
Then Friday 10th was Eid, so we got up early, went to the mosque for Eid prayer, then went home, sent cakes to the neighbours and set off for my grandmother's. We stayed there until dinner, and we saw my grandmother, my two aunts, my two cousins and their wives and one cousin's son. Then we went to see my uncle's widow and daughter, and then we went home. I was exhausted, so I went to bed, and then when I got up at about seven we watched a film - Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang and had loads of sweets and chocolate and crisps and cake - it was great.
Saturday 11th was the second day of Eid, and we woke up pretty early to go to a picnic all my mums friends here had organised. We left at about half ten, and got lost for about an hour on the way (the picnic was set to be at a school that one of my mum's friends owns. It doesn't have any furniture in it yet, though, so it was great for the kids). Finally, we got there - and we were the second to arrive! I waited around for a while, and, eventually, one of my friends arrived. Then another one, and another, and another, and then two other girls I'd never met before who were really nice (MA). We kinda separated into two groups: four of us together, and another three on their own, chatting. We had loads to eat as almost everyone brought something, and we ran around exploring a bit. We went right up to the top and stood on a ledge on the wall to look over and saw into the neighbours garden - they have a gorgeous swimming pool - just like those you see in films. In the end, we chatted and exchanged emails before we packed up and came back home. We got a bit lost on the way back as well, but not for as long as the first time.
Then today, I went to my allergy doctor to get my injection, and then I had to see him. I asked him to write a letter to my school saying that I can't do PE but he gave me this whole spiel about sports being good for what I have, and he recommends it, and blah blah blah blah blah! So I took that as a no. Then I went to bf's friend, and we talked and laughed and had a great time. At home I had fried eggs, baked beans and chips, and then I watched Numbers. We'd taped it for the two Eid days because we knew we weren't going to be able to watch it, so my mum and me watched the first one. I couldn't believe Charley gets shot/stabbed (couldn't see very well) at the end, and Amita gets kidnapped!! Then I told my mum to play the next one to find out what happens, but she didn't want to :( she wanted to watch Fringe instead (which, in my opinion, is a great load of codswallop). Then, my sister, who'd told me we'd watch the Bounty Hunter tonight, bailed, said it was too late. So I totally wasn't in a good mood until I took out a caramel bar. I cheered up after that :)
And tomorrow is my first day of school, but I don't start until one, so that's okay.
