Things are not going well!

I'm not sleeping well these days.  My rooms are upside down.  Nitin is off school AGAIN with an upset stomach.  I slept in this morning and did not send the girls to school.  I've got to get to the boy's school before the last minute.  Oh how will I manage? 

I think I need a break!


  1. Gaelikaa,DO only what is important today,the rest can be done slowly.Cook a simple meal and get some sleep.Take help to tidy up from your 4 elfs.LOL

  2. most certainly do need a break...I've seen this coming for a while (in case you wonder how I do that...I have this knack of reading between lines...I'm good at it...and you are long overdue for a break!)

  3. Take a day off. The house will not fall down because of an untidy room. Only deal with Today's worries the rest might never happen, so why waste precious energy on them now.

  4. Hmmm... If I could show up and help you out for a day or two I would!

  5. Declare a sicky day and watch a movie with the kids .... start again tomorrow.

  6. Do what you must and let the world sort itself out! I hope you feel better soon.

  7. I sympathize. I've been fighting a cold for a week or and have been grateful I don't have much that has to be done now. You do need a break! Take as much of one as you can. You'll recover a lot faster.

    We're all wishing you well.

  8. Oh no, sounds like a break is definitely needed.

    Thanks for sharing your heart with me. I enjoyed this post and there are times the weather does affect my mood, but rainy days seem so calming and I love them!!! Take care my sister and praying you will feel better.

Kipling Got it Wrong! Or Eastern and Western Culture - Reflections

What Is Culture?
I’m opening this blog post with a question. What is that elusive concept which is commonly known as ‘culture? Culture is way of life. How we live. What our values are.  Our customs, attitudes and perceptions. And also, I suppose, how we express ourselves in art through, such as music, dance, theatre and cinema.  It’s quite a comprehensive area and not too easy to define, really.

The Journey
I was born in what is commonly known as ‘the west’. I lived in Ireland for the first thirty years of my life. When I was thirty, I married my husband and came out to India to live here with him. That was the beginning of an interesting journey, which is still evolving. I must have had some east/west comparison stereotypes in my head. But in India, I found that the people I met had huge stereotypes in their heads about what they called ‘western culture’ and ‘western way of life’. Not long after I arrived in India, I was struck by the number of people who said things to me like ‘in the …

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…

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.
