More than posting, what I missed was reading my favourite blogs. So, the last two days, I hopped into all my favourite blogs and read all the posts I had missed.
Being new here, I did not expect any one to even notice my absence, leave alone missing me. But I was really surprised to find a message from Visha of Zack and Visha. I was instantly on cloud nine. Visha, you made my day. Thanks a ton:)
For me 2013 started on a bad note. I fell ill on the eve of the new year. On the 1st and 2nd day of the year, I was down with high fever. I recovered in a week’s time, but then my Babs fell ill. It started with a cough and cold and developed to chest congestion and high fever. My hyperactive and cheerful Babs became completely inactive. The smile he always had, was gone. On 10th Jan we were to fly to kerala for a month long vacation and on 9th night we were in the hospital. After injections, suppositories and nebulisation sessions, by 10th evening he got better. Though his cough and cold continued, his smile was back and he was active. This is something really amazing about kids, no matter how ill they are, they start playing the moment they can lift their head.
Finally on 11th Jan we were back home. A month passed like a week and we came back to Dubai on 11th Feb.
I was sure that I would be online and actively blogging back home, as there was internet connection at both my parent’s and in-law’s home. But KSEB (Kerala State Electricity Board) and BSNL had other plans. Thanks to KSEB , the power did not go off occasionally, rather power came occassionaly :(. And BSNL made sure that the internet connection was lost or very very slow whenever there was power. And then my Babs and relatives/guests made sure that on the very particular moment, that came once in a blue moon, when both power and internet are available, I was not available to make use it 😦
So in a nut shell, let me borrow SRK’s dialogue from OSO, but with a change, “agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho , toh poori kaynath tumhein usse ‘door’ karne ki koshish mein lag jaati hai’ . Seriously yaar , it happens with me every time !
More on the vacation in my next post.
