Over a month ago, my son was driving my car and had a terrible accident. Of course I know that it is quite possible for a young man who just started driving to have an accident and I guess all beginners do, but I never thought it would be that bad. Thank God he is OK but my car is ruined. It’s been five weeks now at the mechanics and they are still working and fixing it. Not to mention the amount of money I paid till now and how my husband is pissed off, but I’m the one who is suffering. I’m a prisoner at home and I can’t do both personal or work errands. I’m jobless and I think that even whenever I get my car back I won’t have work anymore. I was supposed to deliver my products last month to some markets and I didn’t. No one will rely on my word again. I feel awful and my husband can’t handle the kids outings and lessons. He’s not used to driving back and forth like I do. He knows that I’m stuck and never offered to drive me to those markets to deliver my late orders. On the contrary, he stayed a lot at home this past month cause he was tired and exhausted. We are both under stress. I feel bad without a car and I’m too far from the markets and from my family as well. I haven’t seen my parents for two months. Now my Kuwaiti friend Adam is coming next week and I don’t know what am I going to do. First I won’t be able to fetch her from the airport plus I won’t be able to see her everyday. Oooof such a terrible feeling such a terrible situation. Hope I get back my car this week.

So last week I participated in an event and i was a bit worried about it. Well it turned out very well and my products were sold out quickly. Good news is the owner asked me to be there every Saturday, so now i can say that i have my corner at Zamalek Market. Im so happy and looking forward to this new adventure. If u didnt get the chance to try my stuff last week, i hereby invite u this Saturday but come early before all the yummies go to other tummies.
So I’m so so excited as I will participate in another Farmers Market and this time its here in Egypt, my country. I have so many strange feelings at the same time. Feeling happy, excited, worried, hesitant, afraid, proud, looking forward because its a new journey. I dont know if it will be the same system here and Im not sure if my products will be appreciated here as they were there in Kuwait. Its a different market and different customers and honestly i have to admit that my products are different too. Well, inshallah it will work out fine and all the effort wont be wasted as well as the money spent. Wish me luck and if you reside in Cairo, pls pass by and support me.
I’m here in Cairo Egypt for a very short trip as mentioned before. What can I do in only five days? I can’t see all my family and friends. I came for my cousin’s wedding and now it’s time to see all whom I love and miss. First thing to do was going to Tarnim’s open day at the fifth district early Friday and passed by our new apartment there as well. I saw my parents at the wedding and ever since my mum became sick and can’t see her. I didn’t even get the chance to give her the makeup she asked for. I went to the club twice till now and saw some of my friends and tonight I’m meeting my school mates. We will even surprise our friend lulu with an early surprise birthday as I won’t be here to celebrate it after five days. As for tomorrow I am invited at Eman’s house for a small gathering with her sister and another friend who I didn’t see in ages. Oh I really miss our old day gatherings. However, A member of the family passed away last week and I have to go pay my condolences to his wife and children. I still need to go visit my aunt whom I didn’t get the chance to see last summer. Above all that, my kids have their outings too and I have to coordinate. My god, days run so quickly here and I didn’t accomplish all what was on the list.
I’ve been posting a lot about my friends in Kuwait and now they are here with me in Egypt for a short visit. Melissa came to Cairo last week and I took her to the must-see places such as the pyramids, Cairo tower, Egyptian museum, Nile cafés, khan al khalili in addition to other places. Then came Amal and followed by Ghadeer. We all attended my nephew’s baby shower on a boat. It was so much fun. Following day we went to the North Coast and we’re still there. I can hardly get Melissa out of the sun and beach. She can stay all day to get tanned. Today we went to la femme beach which is only for ladies. We all got tanned and danced and enjoyed the day. We just got back from Porto Marina and had dinner at Chilis and took a quick tour around. You know what? We found a new service company called taxi al sa7el. You never find taxis there if you know the north coast. So, today I found it and tried it for the first time and I totally believe it’s a brilliant idea. Well, we still have one more day here and then off to cairo from where Mel will go back to kuwait. Amal and Ghadeer are leaving tomorrow but will come back after Ramadan inshallah. What a great holiday.
Sitting home all alone in Cairo after my friend Amal travelled back to her country. Nothing much to do during this curfew, nothing except eating and watching TV. I had dinner twice and couldn’t sleep, so I decided to watch TV. Turning channels, I found an episode called Doors of Fear. It’s some kind of horror or suspense, don’t know the genre exactly but I can only say its weird. I found myself caught with the events and actor and was like daydreaming and feeling like its happening to me especially that the actor was a journalist and a writer, so writing is a common thing between us. I was living the moment when I heard a weird noise like someone is trying to break the door and come in. I startled for a moment and looked at the door knob, it was not turning or moving, but I was quite sure that there is somebody behind the door and trying to come in. The noise became louder and the door was shaking until it was open and I found my cat coming in so quickly. At that moment I was really shocked and stood there telling myself “how did I ever forget that I own a cat and that I shouldn’t have closed that door”. Oh my God, I shouldn’t stay home alone again, especially after watching this horror episodes.
I was invited to one of our school gatherings two days ago. I was so thrilled and looking forward to it cause every time my classmates arrange something I’m always out of town and can’t make it. Well, I finally attended this outing which was for Sohour in Gezira Club, Zamalek, Cairo, Egypt. The most prestigious club in all Egypt. We were all members of course and that’s why we gather there. The place wasn’t really what made me so happy, but the people themselves. I haven’t seen most of them for ages and this is as literarily as 25 years ago. Oh my God, yes it’s true, ever since we were in high school and some even longer than that. I really had fun that night and it was all about our unforgettable memories and school days. I felt I’m young again and felt that these people are like real family to me and the distance doesn’t really matter but there are certain bonds between us that will never break by time. Thank you my friends, I love you all.
