I can’t believe a week has whizzed by so quickly. I spent a lot of time offline and got on the internet only when I had something specific to do. I had internet fatigue. My email felt like an overload. So I practiced some tight time-management around a “plan”. It almost worked. I was heard and not seen. Oh wait, the saying is about being seen and not heard, right? Ugh. Times have changed and we gotta adapt. And I did. A very fruitful week, I’d say. If I continue at this rate, I might actually accomplish half the lofty things I’ve listed on my too-much-to-do list! Keeping my fingers crossed.Earlier, I’d take breaks and during these, browse around. I am an information junkie. But the problem with this was I would get so carried away with something that soon, I’d find I’ve cut into the time allocated for something else. So – since I spent much less time online last week than usual, my breaks involved looking at old photos. I’d just shut it when my time was up. And it felt good because I know it is going to be there.As I took a short trip down memory lane, I collected a lot of smiles. Yes – nostalgia is like that. Like a big warm hug. I am lucky to have loads of photos with my friends, and recalling those moments is the best stress-reliever I can think of. And so – I came across these pictures which fill my heart with smiles. Not the best quality photos as my scanning is a bit half-assed. But I have the original film. Oh yah, not a digital camera those days!
Vidur was about three months old and such fun. Here I am taking him off for a bath. A loo-ong one. This child never wanted to leave the water.
My best friend. School mates. College mates. Don’t go around with that guy mates. I hate your boyfriend mates. I love your boyfriend mates. Forget work let’s play hooky mates. Wonder how much a pitcher of beer costs at the new pub mates. Let’s finish up our paperwork over a series of drought beer mugs mates. Let’s just drive our Moms crazy mates. I need something to wear and ravage each others’ wardrobe mates. Mi casa es su casa mates. Talk on the phone for three hours mates. I look at the phone when I am sad and she calls mates. I could really go on and on…..I love her. The next two pics are dated 1993 when I told her I got a new job – and she came right over. I was in Bangalore for a year then and she was in Hyderabad. I moved back to Hyderabad in 1994.
I am also a wee bit guilty of acquiring the following last week. 🙂
A rather neat bracelet
A cute pair of owls earrings. I have a thing for owls.
Another neat bracelet made of thirty inter-twined bangles. You can tell I like junk jewelry eh?
See? It is in our hands to be happy!! (even if it means buying bracelets!)
Now that I’ve shown you mine, join me on a trip around the world. Tickets are free. Let’s head over to Unknown Mami’s, our lovely host for the itinerary
Have a happy Sunday, folks, followed by a fabulous week ahead!
I am glad you are here. May your day be filled with smiles!
