Today makes it officially four days before the big day. The big 40th Birthday that is. I am not prepared today to discuss with all of you the shocking dread that is be-falling me as of last week. The dread about turning 40. I will leave this maybe till Friday, when I will need all of my fabulous Mummy’s out there to tell me ” Naim’s it is going to be ok” .
So back to today, my timeless Tuesday. It started out with a request to have coffee with a fellow mummy friend. She needed some advice about her four year old son, but I think she needed me more to vent. Thank-goodness since I am still trying to figure out child – rearing 101 myself. Coffee turned out to be lovely, and another mummy friend spontaneously joined us. It was laughs all the way.
Home-bound I was back to mulit-tasking out of my kahuna as usual. Managing the roofer’s who are doing some steel work on our roof. Working on research for a new feature I am writing for The Guiltless. Taking Karate boy to karate.
I was able to have one Guiltless moment though. I was able to coax my lovely sister-in law Melanie to come from Queens to Brooklyn for a late lunch. Since having that amazing brunch at Cafe Gitane this past Sunday, I was still feeling the whole middle-eastern vibe. Off to Zaytoons for a Turkish lunch. I am on a cleanse so I had to sit this one out. Melanie devoured happily her chicken kabob salad and fresh pita bread. I hardly get to spend quality time with my sister-in law, this was just wonderful and I felt so happy catching up with her. A mum on the go like me, it’s these Guiltless moments that mean so much.
