I must have been crazy…

Absolutely. Completely. Crazy. To join the blog marathon this month. I should have known better. It’s bound to be a crazy, busy, fun month, and to add to it all, I’ve also gone and piled on a blog marathon on top of my overloaded plate.

But what’s life without a few challenges, especially when you have so many of your friends with you in the marathon madness. The only thing I regret is that I just don’t seem to get any time to reply to the comments or read your posts. These last few days, I don’t even get the time to log into my reader. But I’ll get there, eventually.

Talking of challenges, the one challenge that I did take up was Smita’s review challenge, and I have to say, I just loved it. I’m quite sure that I bored a lot of you with my reviews, but I’m quite keen on doing it again. I managed to review 52 books last year, making it an average one a week. I wonder how ambitious I should get this year. At the very least, let me try to match last year’s record? I already have a back log of some wonderful books that I so want to review. I try not to take challenges to up the number of books I read, because somehow, I feel it would take away from the joy, I get from reading. That reminds me that I’ve not even updated my ‘My Nose has been buried in these..’ page. And its already time for a brand new page.

In other, totally unrelated news, husband is here, and we are enjoying living in the home, we had dreamt of for the last 8+ years, savouring every moment, capturing memories, just in case we do have to return back to the UK. As we were discussing, there is something about Bangalore that feels like home, even after years of being away… Fingers crossed that this year, we would all be together, soon, wherever that might be.

So what are your new year resolutions? Any new challenges this year?

The Big Gap..

..between planning and execution is the reason for my downfall.

Rather the reason for the lack of posts this week, and the next week. We’re off home, to my parents(the mere thought of it is so exciting, relaxing and all things warm and cozy :)), and as usual, I’ve got loads of things yet to be done.

I had these huge plans of scheduling posts, book reviews that I had planned on doing. What did I actually do – nothing. Sigh!

I have been reading all your posts, but haven’t had the time to comment. I read on the phone, whenever I get a chance, but commenting gets more difficult. I try to hit ‘like’ when I can, sometimes even tha doesn’t work, because WP logs me out, and to ‘like’ I need to be logged in. After reading Shilpa’s and Bikram’s posts, I’ve been feeling rather guilty. So please consider this an apology – I just don’t seem to get the time to comment properly, or even respond to comments systematically these days. One day…

So all I have now is warm wishes to all of you for the festive season. Hope you all have a great time, and see you on the other side of the holidays.

Oh! Before I go, let me tell you who else is looking out for a job for husband. Yesterday, we had been at our local supermarket, buying a few last minute things, when daughter noticed a ‘Wanted’ sign, advertising jobs. They were looking at SSLC pass candidates to work at the store. All excited, she turns to me and says, ‘Look, Daddy can try and get that job, and then he can live with us forever!’
