It's amazing...

It's amazing how much one can do in one week! What's more amazing is when you're blessed with great friends that know how to hang out and make the best of a holiday.

Yesterday afternoon, we went to the movies. 17 again. It was just great fun! It's amazing how going to the movies makes me feel when it's over. I feel so heady and dazed, so absorbed by the world I've been to and that world just doesn't seem to fade away quite

The day before, we went by train to York.It was quite interesting. Small, old and cosy, it reminded me a lot of Luzern, Switzerland. We toured the city in six hours lol well, at least the main sights there is to see. We started by visiting the Garden Museum- yeah, that's what they call it :P

Today, I went to the hairdressers, and had to get up at 8am :(( boohoo! I had to curse myself, what was I thinking agreeing to an early appointment! sniff sniff

But, as we say, whoever wants the rose bears the thorns, ay? and it was an amazing result, I must say :) and I'm happy about it.

So, not I'm stuck with an amazing headache, cos I hadn't slept well, and I couldn't go out and enjoy the 'sudden' sunny weather!


Till next time...

Easter... Happy Easter?! #_#

Okay, with all due respect people.

Easter is one of the prettiest times and occassions throughout the year, including the sparkling wonders of christmas with its snowy white cloths. You tend to see balloons decorating the area around you: boutiques, malls, supermarkets. Colorful eggs and yummy looking chocolate of all shapes and sizes!! :)

Mental brakes!! I was rather apauled to see many muslims online sending easter greetings to each other?! Hello? Do you guys know what it's all about? I mean, yes it's lovely and all, but this is not for us to celebrate. Like those who would actually buy a christmas tree and start ornamenting it, finishing it with an angel on top! (flexing my fingers here)I know some would say, 'Hey, it's only for the fun of it!', well, I wouldn't let myself be lead on by that!! >:(

I was born in December. And in Canada, christmas is so massive you're eyes would unconsciously tear. Whenever I'm in a western country during that period, I feel some kind of longing and connection, not spiritual or anything, but that of good warm memories. When I came back to Libya, winter was not winter without snow and christmas trees in the streets and light bulbs everywhere. My heart ached whenever I saw such things on tv, and I secretly thank Allah that I'm not obsessed with it beyond my beliefs.

Today, as it was sunny early in the afternoon- with the prediction of fog later on- I took the chance of slipping downtown and treated myself to an easter chocolate bunny :) Lindt ( I won't feel lonely :P) with a tiny bell tied to its neck, and instead of ordering a hot chocolate with it, I had chamomile! lol ..I know, I do the oddest of things at times.

Till next time :)
