There it comes again..

..New Year’s Eve..There is something about this time of the year.. The whole festive air, the excitement, the whole atmosphere seems charged. That time when everyone seems to be in the mood for some partying :)

Unbelievable, that another year has passed. Another New Year’s Eve is here, and we have to learn to write 2012 instead of 2011 :)

2012 seemed like a big year. In 2005, when London won the Olympics bid for 2012, we had felt that 2012 is so, so far away. Funnily enough, those years seem to have flown by. 2012 is here! 2012 is also the year for our move back to India – hopefully our last big move of this sort. Hopefully 2012 will be everything we hope for..

Here’s wishing you all a very Happy New Year. May 2012 bring for all of you everything that you want and hope for :)

Be careful what you wish for..

..so they say, and with good reason too, as I discovered today.

Yesterday was a mad rush. I had loads to do before going off on our holiday, and with almost everything left to be done, I could help wishing that I had more time. Turns out, I did. Guess what happened?

Our flight got canceled and we got rebooked on a flight for Sunday instead of Saturday- which was when we were supposed to leave. What made it even worse was that we got no notification of it. I just happened to log in to do an online check-in, when I discovered that the date of departure was 2 days away!

I certainly have a lot more time to pack and get organized now. And we have just 4 days of holiday, unless we manage to change our return dates – fingers crossed. 4 days just does not feel enough! One more day would make it so much better :) In the meanwhile, we spend our time with the phone glued to our ears, in an effort to get through to the airlines.

In other news, Santa visited our home today, because we were supposed to leave tomorrow, on Christmas day. Someone, thankfully, is very happy with Santa’s gifts :)

I just finished reading and re-reading ‘Daughter of Shame’ by Jasvinder Sanghera. Remind me to post a review, because it is one book which needs to talked about. But probably not during the festive season.

So, all going well, we should be away till next year.

Wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Have a wonderful holiday season! See you in 2011!
