A long update

Its been over a month I have written anything here, and I have had so vast an agenda for the past month that updating the blog could just not happen. So here goes with the update... it might be a tad too long, but I shall make it simpler for you and make each para deal with a single agenda item only!

Visiting home has its own charm and the pampering that you receive there can not be compared to any place else. The pampering did not come without its own set of issues in terms of lard being added in layers around me! So now after all the gorging on lovely food items, its time to set down a routine and work this off me in anticipation of the next round.

This month has been by far the most satisfying month which involved large amounts of shopping and associated fun. All in all I think I have got over 10 sarees and some salwar suits too. And if you are thinking, why would someone go about buying such numbers, then the only answer which I can come up with and which is the answer also is wedding!!

Yes, I am getting married, and the date is December 26th. After what seems like a very long time I have known Bhupesh, now I am engaged to him and does it feel anything specifially different? Not particualarly, but nevertheless the wedding date is what I guess should change matters! And maybe that also wont, and then I shall be happy as a love bird! Something which I always pray about is that how many years might pass and where ever we might be, our love, friendship and trust should not change. Maybe this is the love struck me speaking, but its a wish nevrtheless.

I will have to a lot of travelling in the coming months with marriage preparations and my mom being alone at Trivandrum to manage everything is just not done. This brings about an issue regarding Whisky, I do not know who can take care of her these spells and she needs attention, else she tends to catch your attention by being naughty... she will claw at furniture, or try to get on top of the cupboards and refrigerator. I have been thinking of what to do and I am very seriously considering keeping her at a animal shelter during those times. She will have the company and maybe she will also be less scared of humans and other animals in that case. Presently, she skulks away at any sudden movement and when anyone visits our place.This is something which I do not know how she will react to... I do not even know if cats mind distance and being away from known people too much. Its said that cats are not very attached, but I doubt it after seeing Whisky and how happy she is when we come home after a few hours.
