Just Like That
This is one of those just like that posts that everyone of us writes sometime or other.And today of all days calls for one such post.
It has been a dull week and a half in Melbourne.When I say dull,I mean dull and gloomy.Other than one day,all other days have been dull,broody sort.And the weather can get to you..Long dark wintry evenings,dull cloudy days..longer work hours for S,onset of PMS- you get the idea,in short perfect recipe for gloom!Even Aadya’s non-stop chatter doesn’t cheer me up.
Yesterday was nice and sunny and we spent most of our morning outside.But,it was sunny and cold..I hate that combination.And Aadi didn’t want to come back..mini meltdown there.
Over the last week or so,I have dealt with so many meltdowns..the bad weather gets to her too,you know..now,I don’t dwell on it.
Instead,I decided to do something with my hair.I had got some highlights put in,when I went to India last..way back in Jan 2008.I never get around to going back for touch ups.My hair has a brownish tinge & the stylist gave me golden highlights…I so didn’t want that.He called me again,but there was hardly anytime,as we were leaving in 3 days and going back with a 9 month old in tow,didn’t seem very appealing.Instead I waited the mandatory 4 weeks and recolored it myself.But so much coloring,decreasing pregnancy hormone,changing water of 2-3 cities…took its toll on my hair and while it was still soft,it just had a brittle look.Anyway,I have decided no more color for me.The highlights have since grown and are at the shoulder level.I conditioned it with Henna today and love the softness and color of it.I think I’ll just get a nice hair-cut now,from one of those nice Salons.What say you?To chop or not?
Today I am in mood to read something cheesy-like gossip magazine or something.I searched the entire house and didn’t find anything..Nothing Nada…Guess will just turn to google Baba.
News on Aadya front-Well my little girl goes to day-care once a week,starting Friday.I am excited and nervous..As for Aadi,that calls for another post,naturally 🙂
I want to read some nice fun books..I haven’t had much luck with books since my last stock which had “A Splendid Suns” and “finding Nouf” .Anybody has any titles to share??
Watched Kambakht Ishq today..total waste of time..Please God,Let one good new Hindi Movie
Please tell me something nice,to cheer me up..PLEASEEEEEEEEEE
