So me and my family moved back to the UK 2 weeks ago from Dubai, I have to say I have missed home to damn much! And what a beautiful time of year to return! Autumn fall it’s just stunning all orange and golden full of snuggle days and reading while drinking hot drinks and dunking biscuits!
We are still continuing with our home education even though my baby has said he would like to go back to his school 😢😕 poooooo so I have applied but whether we get in is a whole other ball game!
We have moved on to Victorian times for history and having a lot of fun with that!
I also snagged some bargain science workbooks for 29p each! That was a good day!
Reading our way through the magic fareaway tree by Enid Blythe we are enjoying it lots!
Hope you are all ok and well!
I’m also so gutted as I have no photos to pop in ( you know I like to show all what we have Been doing) but some little sod deleted all my pictures! And do you know why! Because he wanted to make minecraft videos for YouTube and there wasn’t enough space in my phone!
It’s my phone dude. Ask next time 😠
But my next post I will be writing is what we have achieved these last few weeks with pictures of course as we are moving on to new things! Woooooo
Hope you all have a blessed day! 🌷
Enjoying the peace with my coffee before everyone awakens! ☕️☀️
Who remembers these! Good old school days! Me and my friends spent ages making these and annoying people with them 😝 https://www.pinterest.com/pin/A4ComwAQAAkGWAkZRzIAAAA/ here’s the link on how to make one!
boo!!! Hey everyone!
Where has time gone! Where does it go! I didn’t even realise it had been so long since my last post!
I guess I’ve just been schooling and relaxing,
I’ve felt a lovely calm lately when it comes to homeschooling, we just go with the flow and I’ve stopped trying to cram so much in, it never ends well when I do that!
Hope you have all had a great few weeks!
It’s eid for us tomorrow, so today we shall be baking a cake (do expect pictures ok) and tomrrow after our beautiful eid prayers at the mosque we shall be going to the beach and later on to adventure land at our local mall followed by food! Yum

Gosh the last few days have been a bit well blerghhhh for me! Ever feel like “am i doing enough?”or “am i doing it right?”
I am throughly enjoying homeschooling the freedom and fun it gives you as well as good family time and growing together, but i guess im just thinking am i doing this right? i dont want to fail my child! please tell me you get this?!
when i started homeschooling i didnt pick a particular cirriculum as there was so many! i didnt really know which one to pick!! So being from the uk i just googled (good old google) the uk cirrculum for year 4 and went with that and im following it casually,
What cirrculum do you all follow?
