The alarm. The mad rush. Cooking. Eating. Getting ready. Being on time. Trying to br on time. Meetings. Thinking. Over thinking. Worrying. Working. New people. New faces. New place. Feeling young. Feeling old. Getting into the groove.
The crowd. The pollution. The familiar sounds. The mad rush when the bus arrives. The jostle. The push. The clinking of coins. The search for the exact change. The traffic. The lights. The walk back to home. The changed shops. The new shops. The neighbourhood sights and smells at twilight.
I am back to savouring them all. I am back to my old routine. I am back at a 9 to 6 job.
The only change is now I along with everybody else, a tiny new face greets me with a huge grin. Off she runs with her little legs carrying her as fast as she can as I try to get hold of her.
Life is good.
After the whirlwind trip last weekend, my sole aim was to go for an Internet detox. The marathon had me spend every available minute looking for fodder online and when the month ended, I was like – no more Internet for few days. In these days, I re-organized my bedroom ( yet again), did spring cleaning in general and tried to make the bed every time Moo was done playing on it. It felt good striking off items from the to-do list and suddenly, the non-blogging phase transformed to more free time at hand.
There are loads of clothes which will not fit me anytime soon and I have stacked and packed them up in the loft. Some pieces I had to think twice before putting them away, it is just so hard to let go of perfectly fine clothes just because they do not fit, sigh.
The pen-pal post I did in the marathon? I am going to write to all of you who signed up 🙂 I so wanted to start writing immediately, but getting ideas for the posts and putting them together consumed most of the time.
This month has one house warming function, anniversary, two birthdays, passport office visits and Moo’s vaccinations, Quite jam packed!
