having no Internet at home really is annoying, just goes to show how much we rely on certain things baaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
anyway this weekend went really fast, amazingly fast, it was only Friday like a couple of seconds ago!!!!
Sunday was of course the thabit's birthday, how could we forget what with him announcing it every 2 seconds 'news just in thabit has turned 13' lol
i swear sat night he waited till midnight so he could say 'i am officially a teenager'.
so on Sunday i had promised him i would take him to the cinema to watch the film of his choice, he choose a film called 'bridge to tarabithia' never heard of it and didn't know what to expect, my bro kept saying 'it's the same people who made Narnia' well i have to say i think i enjoyed it more than he did, and not only that i cried buckets watching it, such a sad film, i looked around the cinema and no one else seemed to be crying.
thank god the cinema was dark, otherwise i would have been made fun of for the rest of the year lol.
so after the film, a friend of ours decides to take out a cake and gives it to thabet, he didn't know what to do with it, i did advise him to eat it but the kid had over stuffed himself on nachos and malteasers.
so i force fed him, i grabbed the fork, and stuffed it into his mouth twice ha ha ha, he had to eat some of it, she had brought it for him, it would have been 3ayb if he didn't show some appreciation lol.
after saying our good byes we headed home, and it was a chance for me to tease him about turning into a teenager, at one point he turns around to me and says 'white african have a grown taller?' so i asked him 'since when do you mean?' and he said 'since last night' loooool
funny thing was he was being serious bless..
later that evening, thabet, my mum and me went out for a meal in celebration of him turning into a monster ummm i mean teenager, we all wanted meat so it was going to be a case of the famous wilmslow road, some place called sizzler.
chicken and red meat mmmmmm nice, roasted and grilled even better, with a plate of chips.
you can see the steam coming out of that plate, it's sooo cool you hear the sizzling sound. the plate opposite thabet was the mixed grill and next to that was the roasted chicken, and there was plenty left over mashallah.
as a kid my mum used to call me 'gatusat la7am ' (basically translated to mean meat lover just like a cat), and it was true but then i kinda changed after going to Libya and seeing them slaughter a sheep, it put me off meat for a long time and i haven't been the same since sob sob.
but from this picture you could never tell, i was trying to eat with a fork and knife but no matter how hard i try i always end up tossing them to the side and using the good old fingers.
besides it tastes better that way :)
it was a good day, happy birthday thabet, may Allah grant you many more birthdays and may he bless you and guide you.
