April Adventures




My laptop blew up. No kidding. Sadly for me, that meant no blogging till it got repaired. It is fixed now, but Id like to apologise to all of you lovelies, for the extended absence.Also because I am not one of those people who blog in cybercafes. Just cant bring myself to do it. On the bright side, the brilliant implication is, *drumroll* ....I have so much to say! So lookout ladies, heres one jam-packed JUICY post coming your way!And to make your reading journey easier, I will head paragraphs:):)


Work

This little paragraph is dedicated to Dionne, who made my day today when she asked how I was finding my new job. Thanks, hun! The new job is exciting and challenging and I've made some really nice friends, and its all really exciting so really, Im soaking it up at the moment. Am struggling a little with the new boss (who isnt, right?) who clearly is not overjoyed that I'm of a different racial background than her, but am managing for now (by managing, I mean working 13 hour days). Other than that, I love the work.


Sisters wedding
My little sister has decided to get married this August, ( yes it IS four months away) so we are working frantically to organise three whole events (the wedding ceremony, a dance party and a formal dinner party) in the short time. I have to confess though, that most of the time, instead of looking for decorators and ordering cakes, Im actually walking past stores hunting for the perfect cocktail dress! Okay, so ladies, I might need your help here. I have a bit of a tummy and am looking for an extremely tummy-forgiving dress. Any particular cut/design you would recommend?

Kite Runner
I picked up this book a couple of days ago after wanting to read it for the longest time. So, with great expectations, I devoured page after page. What a book! For those of you who have not read it, this is the time! Its gripping, the characters are completely relatable and really, its brilliant! A complete eye opener. Perfect example of acting upon second chances.


Wicked Weekends
The weekends have been good for me this month. Managed to drive up to the beach last weekend, had too much delish seafood, and caught up with my reading. Also have been trying to perfect the art of painting on glass. Lets just say Ive got a long way to go, but i'm enjoying it, so why not, right?


Well, that in a nutshell, are my highlights for the month of April. Am looking to cut back on my working hours in May by either getting ALOT more efficient or discussing my workload with the boss. And taking more weekend trips . And reading more. :) So till my next adventure (I pomise I wont take too long!), I bid you adieu!:)


xoxo


ps: There is no relevance of the picture to the post, but I happened to stumble upon it and its beautiful, so just sharing it here:)

I am glad that you've made friends at your new job - I was wondering when you were going to update us!

Wow, what a short amount of time your sis has left for planning! It's going to be a whirlwind. And I am sure you will find the perfect cocktail dress.

I have never read Kite Runner, but I know the author is from the town I used to live in back in California. I remember before the book was famous, when it first came out, they had a signing at a cafe I used to go to. But now it's HUGE and a movie too. I regret not getting a signed copy.
