This Life Sweeter Than Fiction


Last few weeks have been crazy … a lot was going on right after eid. However on the blogging front it was like opening Narnia door ( or was it just a curtain?). I participated in an ice cream cupcake competition in August with All of me loves all of this and got a participation gift!! All the way from USA. It was so very exciting as I never thought someone would actually send something across the oceans to a participant but I have been proven wrong before. That same week I got nominations for two awards and this is one of those awards. I am very thankful to Claire for this sweet gesture. She is creative blogger at paintbox mum and is full of fun and practical ideas for your family’s quality time together. Do visit her blog please.

11 facts about me :-

  1. I am a Muslim who isn’t perfect.
  2. My parents gave me a great childhood and I can never thank them enough.
  3. I have an older brother and a younger brother. They are the daring ones who tasted and ate all my kitchen experiments with a smile.
  4. I am married to a doctor in the armed forces and have 5 kids; 2 boys, 2 girls and another boy.
  5. My name is Farheen, means happiness in Arabic, and my nick Heenie was only a family thing. Imran, my hubby, calls me Heen.
  6. I got engaged at 19 and married at 20. Just like other 95% marriages in Pakistan it was an arranged marriage. Believe it or not… the system still works! I have been married for almost 21 years now Alhamdulillah and Yes, I am 41.
  7. While growing up I always pictured myself as a working person … never thought I would be a stay-at-home mom but honestly I have no regrets.

  9. I have very few close friends.
  10. Army/ Air Force life isn’t easy. It’s not a job.. it’s a lifestyle… it is tough. It made me at least 1/4 of a commando. But it is extremely cool to see a handsome guy in uniform every day 🙂
  11. I believe in the power of prayers.
