Instant Pick-Me-Ups

27 Apr

I have been away so long, that I almost forgot my password! The longer I stayed away, the tougher it was to get back. So much has been going on at work (the deal we were working on for a year closed this month!) and at home ( my cousin’s getting married and the whole family is flying in from all over the world), plus the little one’s having her summer hols, so though I had fully formed posts running through my head, there just wasn’t enough energy at the end of the day to actual type it out. In fact, I’ve been a lurker on my favourite blogs, reading them as I doze off in the night and not leaving my usually chatty comments (sorry).

Anyway, all that’s hopefully in the past and I’m going to get back to regular programming this week. To start with here are five things that have cheered me up this month:

  • Finding a Wilbur Smith book I have never read! I’m crazy about this author and thought I had read every single book by him. What a pleasant surprise to discover that I had missed one over the years
  • Taking a 36 hour trip with my dad. V and the techie joined in at the last moment, but I still managed some quality father daughter time on the road
  • Dancing the night away at V’s 4th birthday. The party was planned and executed in 48 hours, after multiple plans fell through,  however, it turned out to be a super success
  • Finding V’s iPad after I thought I had lost it. Major high that one hour
  • Celebrating a girlfriend’s birthday with the new set of girlfriends I made over the last year (remember my Girlfriend Search? I need to update you all on that). A sure fire stress buster

What are your pick-me ups?

P.S. – Elisa I apologise for the delay in doing the tagged post. Next up for sure.

    A good conversation…time spent with friends and family….when words flow out like a beautiful symphony….a cloudy day….cool breeze (there are so many of them!)

      The ones you have listed remind me of family picnics when I was a child.

    glad to know you’re good-busy! 🙂
    And glad to have you back!
    What’s this 36 hr road trip about? Sounds like fun! Tell me more!

        Sanju, I think your good-busy rubbed off on me virtually 🙂
        The whole trip was 36 hours but we were on the road for about 4-5 hours. It was basically a break from our hectic lives, which my dad initiated. We went to Puttaparthi and chilled. Came back all charged up and positive.

    Ooooh, I am so honored to be mentioned on your blog! 🙂
    No worries, tags with me are never a mandatory thing, you just do them when you want to, when it sounds like fun, otherwise just let them go!

    It sounds like you had a few lovely pick-me-ups lately! I love it when I get one of those moments that lift me up from the daily stress and all that!

    I am spending some quality time with my own dad while in Sardinia 🙂 Have a lovely weekend N! xoxo

      Elisa, I think it’s amazing how I consider you a friend, who I can casually mention, without having ever met you!
      Thank you for giving me time on the tag. I will have it up sometime this month. Needs some thinking 🙂
      Daddy time is always precious, especially as we grow older, hope you had a great time catching -up.


Let me know what you think. It means a lot more to me than you'll ever know .
