Life Indoors


Well hello there! I know many of you have been wondering why I keep on taking breaks from the blogging world. The truth is I've been trying my best to prioritise, and Ramadan is the best opportunity to take time away for a bit. It's been a refreshing month while finding what's most important to me. I'm sure many of you are also aware of the troubles happening around the world. We've all been watching the atrocities of war abroad, and now it seems it's on our own doorstep. It's very frustrating at times, but in my home we're trying to make the most of it! I've been so blessed with having my husband home by my side, as his work has stopped for the time being (along with most Libyans). I also gained new neighbours which is exciting! 

As there's so many shortages here in Libya, staying indoors have been our sanctuary. I must admit I'm not finding it a struggle as we're keeping ourselves busy. I've even started growing my own tomatoes in the back yard . I tried one today, but they still need some time (yes I was too eager!). So many people are finding the situation very difficult, it's the reason why I'm finding so much to be grateful for right now. 

I've decided to share a few pictures of our game of Monopoly yesterday. We've had it collecting dust in the cupboard for some time now waiting for this perfect moment. My husband's adorable niece came over, I don't think she realised how serious I take these 'games'. I put my villain voice on, and started making them poor (Muahahaha..!).  Ok so I'm probably not the best person to play with, but thankfully at least my husband was amused. I'm looking forward to more moments like these, where we get to fully appreciate each others company. 

I also got a little gift the other week when our kitten came back home. We take out time everyday to play with her outside and if she's lucky on the sofa too!  I've named her Felicity as she makes us very VERY happy! Let's hope she sticks around this time. Thanks for reading and have a blessed Friday!
