it's official, yesterday i payed the rest of the money for Hajj so inshallah i will be leaving on the 20th December to perform Hajj, so exciting..
i have had the injections, got my menengitis certificate, took 4 passport sized photos, handed in my passport and now awaiting the visa.
I cant belive i'm going, i dont think its really sunk in yet, probably when i'm at the airport i'm gonna be like 'my god i'm gonna be a going to mecca'.
everyone keeps asking if i have started preparing, can you guess what the answer is:
thats right i have'nt, i am so a last minute.com person, so probably the night before i'm gonna be rushing around like a headless chicken, and my mum is going to give me the same lecture:
' how many times have i told you not to leave things till the last minute, you are so like your father, you have so not inhertied that habit from my side of the family'
which is quite funny cause my parents are cousins, granted distant by like loads of generations but still same surname lol.
i'm supposed to get loads of things cause people have been giving me all sorts of tips including my mother who has been twice, at the moment whats the top of my list of priority things is an a-z book of hajj, i wish someone could publish a 'Hajj for dummies' edition, now that would be cool.
also i need to get loads of cleaning products like bleach, wipes etc.. i've heard loads of horror stories about toilet situations and stuff, i so do not want to risk it, i swear if i could i would carry a portable toilet in my suit case..
my little brother (he's 12) is coming as well and i have had extreme great pleasure in teasing him about his ihram, i swear its so funny, i keep giving him different scenarios of his ihram falling from him and leaving him butt naked, in the begining he would ignore me but now he screams 'MAMA TELL HER' and my mum would tell me to stop to which i do but then later i would bring it back into the converstaion hee hee hee.
im kinda worried about myself behaving because i have this habit of laughing and i'm hoping that i can control myself and hold my laughter when i see things that desreve to be laughed about, also i can get really peeved off with peoples lack of consideration which apparently happens alot over their, so people i need your duas and i will most definatly be praying for you all.
if any one wants a particular dua then let me know, you have about 4 weeks....
