Overdue Award Post!......

I've been Awarded The 'Fabulous Blog Award' by Melanie Trevelyan at Tales from a writer with three childen as well as SuE at Cosmic Chiq.
The rules are:
a) write 5 things you are addicted to. (Perhaps, my daughter can help me out in this - you ready, Mel?)
b) pass it on to 5 deserving bloggers.
Five Things my Mom gaelikaa is addicted to - by Mel!
1. Tea: She can't live without tea... her soulmate...
2. Books: She reads, but she doesn't get enough time to do so...
3. Music: She has an mp3 player and downloads Abba and Bee Gees songs off the internet, or rather, she gets me to do it!
4. Shopping: She doesn't admit it but she is a great shopper!
5. Blog: Mom constantly sits on the computer (when I'm not on it, that is) Of course she does everything else too, like... but STILL!
I wish to pass it on to-

I was Awarded this by SuE too!
The assignment is-
a)Write a few lines on how happy you are.
b) Pass it on to as many bloggers you can think of:
How happy I am: I believe that we should always try to be happy and trust in God no matter what is happening. I have seen situations which have been completely turned around by a positive 'can do' attitude. Happiness is a state of mind and an actual decision too.

Emily at Brits in Bosnia has been generous enough to Award me with the 'MeMeMeMe Award'!

I have to write seven things about myself: I've been writing so many things about myself lately that I don't think that there is anything left!
1. I love to read. I could do it forever. My favourite book was 'A Suitable Boy' by Vikram Seth. Now that's a book you can really get your teeth into. I recommend it to everyone.
2. I love to write. My two blogs are evidence enough of that. I was published fifteen years ago in 'U Magazine' in Ireland under the name under the name of 'Mary Perry' which is a slightly altered version of my real name.
3. It is my ambition to study English up to doctorate level (it's not too late!) and to write some novels. I have plots in my head which are going mad to get out.
4. My most favourite holiday spot in the whole world is Crete in Greece. I visited there twice over twenty years back. I still long to go there.
5. I once worked in a call centre, taking calls from people experiencing crisis. I learnt a lot in those days...
6. I love Italian food! Haven't had a good lasagne in years!
7. I desperately need a holiday!
I kow I have been Awarded for 'Gaelikaa: Out of Ireland, into India' they still are, but I thought I do the award posts on this instead, since this is a part of gaelikaa

    Thank you stopping by and for your prayers, I will keep you updated on results. I remember when we were stationed in Germany and we were waiting to get housing on an American Base. In the meantime we had to live in a German town and the German bus drivers did not wait lol. If no one was there they would leave.

Good Intentions

I had great intentions for this week.  I'd write a thousand words every day, review six books, get my Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post up well in advance.  And did I?  No, no, no.  I wrote about two hundred words per day and have been trying to read and review two books and still not finished reading.  My target of 19,000 words until today by now is around 15,000 on my 100kWords in 100 Days Challenge.  It seems I'm just not cutting the mustard.

I have the intentions.  I just don't seem to have the mojo to carry out the things I want to do. So many intentions, not enough time.  I've not been sleeping well lately.  Probably very tired.

So - my intention now is to try to get more sleep.  Then carry out the original intentions.That' what I intend to do.  As of now.  Meanwhile, my post is up one day late.

I had to go out to the bank this morning to get some pending work finished.  I clicked the above picture en route.  It seems that after a three week winter, we're…

The Curse of Poverty - Short Story

As the dawn light spread its fingers across the early morning, Rajji stirred uneasily.  She tended to sleep like a street dog - ever alert, with one ear open.  But she'd been tired the previous night and as a consequence had slept rather heavily. Her life was a constant struggle, filled with tasks and responsibilities. If she hadn't been careful, she might have been robbed!  She sprang into alert mode and clutched about her person.  No, everything was in place, the precious money was undisturbed.  Thanks to her employment with the bank, cleaning for one hour every morning, six days a week, she even had a bank account which one of the bank employees had helped her to set up.  What little money she had saved up was safe.....

She looked over her children.  Babu, her son lay sleeping still.  Muniya, her daughter, stirred, close to waking up.  But where was Gudiya, her youngest child?  Might have woken up early and gone to wander around.  Gudiya knew everyone around here and every…

Global Peace - Is It Possible? LBC Post

I can't believe it's Friday already and time for another LBC post.  The Loose Blogger's Consortium (LBC) is a blogging group consisting of about half a dozen of us who blog together every Friday on the same topic.  We are indebted to Ramana (aka blogger Rummuser) for this week's topic.  Instead of just giving a straightforward topic like anyone else would, he posed a question instead.  Is global peace possible? he asked.  I decided to answer his question in a Tweet sized sentence.

Is global peace possible?  Of course it is. If everyone gets in harmony with each other.   But will it happen?  How on earth would I know?

As we say in Ireland (well, as they used to say when I lived there two decades ago), that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks to All-Free-Download for the photo.  Thanks to Lettercount for their character counting facilities.  And thanks to my LBC group for being there every Friday in blogging solidarity.
