Happy Mondays… not January 22, 2007

Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Karlskrona, Saudi Arabia, Sweden.

Have been twisting and turning all night. All the pains that comes at night makes me think things are about to start but aaah no, no, no.  Was due yesterday but since Little L has decided to stay indoors the hospital gave me another week before inducing. Will go back in  a few days for a check up. Feeling kinda low but I guess it will pass once I had my brekkie. Saddo, I know.

 I miss home right now, siiiiiiiigh. Just to be able to go for a walk or to sit in a cafe without too much fuss and preparations. Had a run in with some muttawas the other day. It was the first time ever but the man that spoke to my husband asking him to tell me to cover my hair was apparantly a very kind and soft spoken man. I knew what my husbands answer had been before I even asked him…inshalla of course. Funny thing was, that I was actually planning to buy a black shawl for this purpose that very day. I feel that when someone speaks to you in such a kind and respectful way you just can’t ignore them (this man must surely get a lot of work done). In any case, they didn’t seem as scary as what I have heard but perhaps we were lucky.

Hejsan! Try watching a funny movie, my friend was a week overdue and she saw Mrs Doubtfire (Robin Williams), following night the labor started.. And walk a lot, as much as you can. Someone suggested meditation, at least sitting in a quiet place (if you can find one) and talking to Lilla L.
Seems like eastern province has all the polite mutawwas, we had none of them in Riyadh few years back, they were mostly shouting and we always ended up running away from them and hiding at La Senza or other underwear shops. It was not fun at the time, but now I can look back and see how hilarious it actually was.

Thank you T and of course you will still be the “honorary chivalrous troubadour laughing buddha godfather” once she arrives 😛 . My mind created such an interesting pic as I was reading those words 🙂 .

Pia, As we actually just signed up for some more channels I guess watching a film is a good idea. I hope you too get the polite muttawas (if any). I can understand that it was stressful at the time in Riyadh with these foulmouths but as you said it does sound hilarious now 😛 . Will send you my number soon mkay.

Lots of love

I run a website, Babes in Blogland, that lists ttc, expecting, and parenting bloggers to help us all find one another. I’ve added your site to the blogroll. If you need me to correct any information or if you would like for me to remove the link, please let me know.

Thank you and congratulations.
