First blog anniversary

June 26 th ! Today is a special day. It is my first blog anniversary. I have completed a year of blogging.  Last night we had dinner at pizza hut and there is a special reason behind it. Guess what it is? I had received full marks for social studies and science in monthly test. My Dad also gave me 5 riyals as pocket money. I think I have more than 100 riyals now, I am planning to spend this money with my cousins in India and have so much of fun. Just think of it! I have a pizza shaped scar on my knee. Two days back I tripped over a step and hurt my knee when I went to call my friends out to play.

Eye infection

“Owww..!!” I moaned. I pressed my forehead to the cool wall. “What happened?” Mom asked, taking the school bag off my shoulders.   “I got a headache” I said feeling very hot “it’s been a very hot day.” “Well, after taking food go to sleep immediately. It will soothe you.” And that I did. But in the night my eyes started watering while I was reading a book. Now I was feeling uneasy, I was sure something had happened to my right eye.  When we were sleeping, I was getting nightmares every now and then. When I woke up with a start, I felt something strange. I could not open my right eye. And even if I could open my left one everything in front of me seemed really strange. Like, as if there was light fog. It felt like somebody had stuck my eyelashes together with superglue. I was scared to death that if I wouldn’t pull eyelids open then it would stay like that. In the morning Mom woke me up. I was feeling hot and uncomfortable. Then I noticed I could not open my eyes, how much ever I tri

Birthday girl

“Finally” I thought “June, the month which holds my birthday has come.” I was feeling very delighted. I went to the bedroom and saw my parents were discussing something. I asked them “Dad, Mom, what are you discussing?” “Well” Mom began “we have decided to celebrate your birthday on this Wednesday.” “What” I almost screamed. I started jumping and skipping around the house. “Yeaiii.. we are having a party” back Mom told Dad “I wish I didn’t say that” On Wednesday all the children in the compound came to our home. The children came at 8:30 and adults were invited for 9:00pm. Tolha and Ayesha were the first. Just after they stepped into my room the door bell rang. It was Slomo. As we got inside my room I saw something in Tolha’s hand. “I wonder what you have got for me.”   “it’s a watch” Ayesha declared. “Hey, you are not supposed to say that” I laughed. At that time Slomo was exploring my room looking at all the little show pieces over there.   One by one came my friends, and I st

Trip to Riyadh Museum

“Girls, we are going to have a trip next week” everybody pricked their ears at once. “we are going to a museum” announced our teacher.  “But why museum” asked a girl. “Malls are more fun”. Oh, for crying out loud, groaned a few girls. But I was very delighted. Our teacher made a tired face too. “It might be a little boring.” Now I started having second thoughts, “its okay” I decided. Back home, I told Mom about the trip. “When we get the notice, please let me go Mom” I begged “pretty please!” “Don’t make puppy eyes at me” laughed Mom. “You know I let you go on every trip you get into your hands. Till now I have never said NO and anyway it is an educational trip. It will be good for you.” Sunday, teacher told us to wear abaya (purdah) for the trip because it is compulsory in the museum. None of us could wait; we all had to buy our abayas. Finally, the big day came. All of us were dancing in the class showing each other the black dress we wore. Then we went to the auditorium to
