A Brief Encounter

Sunday was a very hot day here in London yet it was a non stop day for me, it started by taking Amir to have a hair cut in the morning then off for the weekly shopping at Tesco which gets very busy on a Sunday then back home. The kids wanted to ride their bikes and it was too hot to go to the park so I let them do that on the pavement outside the house and nearly broke my back (again) helping them.

In the evening I knew I had to look after Amir as Aida & her mum usually go to the Muslim women swimming club but I got a phone call from mani telling that he is leaving to go to Libya Monday morning and was coming to London in the evening to stay the night with Ahmed (a_akak) my apology to all the bloggers in London that wanted to meet (sorry Ghazi, Beacon & Hibo) as I had a very short notice to meet mani. I had promised Amir to take him to the park to ride his bike so after dropping Aida & mum at the sports centre I took for a quick ride in the park

I asked mani if I could send something with him to Libya to which he kindly said yes and since it was a Sunday all shops close early so I thought before I go and meet him in Marylebone Train Station to go to Whiteleys Shopping Centre which tends to open slightly longer on a Sunday, I only had an hour to do that, of course I couldn't get a parking space near by but I found one about 10 minutes walk away, I parked and dragged Amir along to the shops, we got inside the shop, saw what I wanted put my hand in my back pocket, oh no, no wallet! of course being a hot day, I left my wallet in my jacket in the boot of the car so back we went to the car and Amir told me he wished he brought his Heelys, I wish he did, got the wallet, rushed back to the shop, it was closed.

We went to Queensway where there are many shops open but most of them are tacky souvenir shops but I had no choice so I got something rushed back to the car again and off to the Train station, luckily the train was a bit late and we got there in time. Mani came out with his big beaming smile and the first thing I noticed is how healthy he looked (MashaAllah) he had put on some weight thanks to his mum's cooking :o)
Few minutes later Ahmed arrived and we walked to Baker Street where we had a nice coffee at Costa and Amir had an ice cream, about 30 minutes later I had to make my excuses as it was getting well past Amir's bed time, I said my good byes to both mani & Ahmed and drove back home feeling exhausted after a long day of driving and running around but it was a good day.
Best of luck to mani inshaAllah and I hope all goes well for him in Libya.
