…After a month. I feel a bit sheepish coming back having not written for so long. A whole month (well, five weeks to be exact) is the longest I have stayed away any writing and it feels really quite strange. A lot has been happening, and March has been a bit of a roller coaster ride. Among the various small and big happenings one major time consuming thing has been my catching the flu. It took all of two and half weeks weeks to get better, and seriously I have never felt so weak or miserable, at least in recent times. Then other stuff happened, that I want to write about by and by but just now still trying to get over some difficult times.
So, its good to be back to here, because despite this and that, I am happy and relieved to note that life has been moving on.
The weather for one has certainly undergone a major transformation. This is a view from my bed, and what I was staring at most of the time when I was not sleeping off the flu.Isn’t it lovely? I am afraid, it’s no longer looking like this; mornings are insanely sunny and bright, and this foggy feeling is totally gone.
But to move on to what has been happening…. Before I fell sick and towards the end of February, we had a few birthdays to attend. And so, N got to wear her new frock, that I had just made then.Looking at the photo I cannot believe how much cooler it was then!
The other highlight of early March was my sister’s visit. It was absolutely lovely to have her, although the poor thing ended up spending most of her vacation time looking after a sick sister. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to look after me, but we didn’t manage to do much. Of what we did do, one was a nice trip to Hauz Khas.
Then Ms. N had her last day of school.I can’t believe that she is done with yet another school and now come April she starts at the big school. She is excited about it, and wasn’t particularly sad to leave this last temporary one where she went only for a few months. That is some relief because she misses her Bangalore school terribly still. I can’t believe that it is now time to be at the “big” school already, where there will also be fourteen year olds along with four year olds!
Post school and since I have been getting better we have been doing some stuff and keeping a little busy. Various little shops have been set up in different places in the house and she spends a fair bit of the day attending to these various enterprises.Here is the shopkeeper…
Then there are books. And we have been reading a fair bit of mythological stuff.
So, as you can see, I have very little to show in terms of what I have done. Except for giving the child a very long overdue haircut. Yeah, as much as she and even I would like to see those curls getting longer and cascading down to her waist that is simply not possible. I am being told by near and dear ones that this haircut is not as bad as the last one I gave her, so I think for a while we can continue with me giving her haircuts. 🙂 She and I really enjoy it!
I haven’t forgotten the promise I made to myself about sewing every week, but it has simply been not possible. But I am getting my energy back and will be back to it soon. N’s school, as I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, does not have a uniform but they do have a dress code of shorts and tee shirt. So this means some shorts are in order.
More soon! For now I am just glad to be getting better.
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate all of you who have been checking on me regularly to see if I have written.
