Home

I'm finally home. I've also resolved never (NEVER) to fly Indian Airlines again. Not if my life depended on it, no.
Seats are rock-like. Person on either side, not my parents because we couldn't get seats together.
Elbows creeping into my personal space. I'm all cramped, into the smallest self possible.
ugh ugh.
And for the first time on a flight I felt too sick to eat.

Home....well, we managed to make it habitable rather fast, piling up all the books here, all the cds there, unpacking in a whirlwind, the house is still a mess though....
And now it's a home, the family really can't live in a catless house can we? So off we went today morning to get our cats back. Of course, their vacation was spent in a little cage in a pet shop. we weren't too happy about that. Getting them back was easy enough, and now they're settling, letting the memories and the sounds and smells of our house come back to them, creeping, tiptoeing cautiously, exploring, galloping frantically.....

I hate facebook photo uploading thing.

meanwhile. I've had a good vacation. Went to manali. had best time ever. Came to Mumbai, got some work done, got braces and hair-streaks, and I'm quite happy. Went to Pune, redecorated cousins room with more warli art, took lots of pics....loafed around, roamed around....
yeah, it's been a good vacation.
now if only i can get the pics to upload....

Congrats for getting back to home. To be back at Home especially after a long outing is always a great feeling.

Try uploading the pics in IE.. Firefox and opera seem to have problems with it sometime.

Sorry u had to learn the hard way.
But yes. Indian Airlines/ Air India takes all the fun off flying.
Esp after u see the other side ( I mean Emirates Qatar Airways Singapre airlines et al. )

I like cats.

Air india is all about motherly love.

(I'm refering to the average age of air hostesses here :P )

Erm...I would've commented on your latest post, but I'm a little scared to.

Anyhoo, about the tag, I don't make these things up lady, I just pass them along.

But there's gotta be one person who's changed at least five things in your life. Doesn't even have to be your significant other. Could be your mum, dad or anyone from birth till now. Fictional will do too, I think... Not sure about imaginary friends though.

Mystique said...

i don't know about 5 things....various people have done various things....
and why scared???
lol
i'll think.
