Eid Celebrations

The lead up to this Eid has been a whirlwind of activity, with our siblings on pilgrimage and helping to look after our cutey pie niece; the day literally snuck up on me! I'm fortunate enough to be home to run the errands on the last minute and finish my baking and prepare for Eid lunch. Just one of the perks of being a stay-at-home Mum, I suppose.

Its always such a wonderful day, and it's the significance of this day as much as spending time with loved ones that makes it really special. This year, the knowledge that my siblings were amongst the two million pilgrims added a different and more personal dimension to the days significance. It really felt as if we were experiencing this amazing spiritual journey with them. Our days were peppered with constant Watsapp messages and photos leading up to the culmination of their pilgrimage.

It's a day spent running around visiting family
