Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and my mind is on all that last minute planning of food and festivities. I have loads of cooking to do tomorrow and still some presents to wrap.
The last 10 days has been somewhat difficult. The whole family, myself included, have been very closely physically connected with a nasty virus which has laid us all low, spluttering and coughing all over each other to ensure that we all stay connected as a close family unit We have seen doctors, ingested numerous pills and suspensions and are hopefully on the mend. I say hopefully, as on Sunday I am travelling to India (with my better half of course!) for a two week ruby wedding celebration! This is to be the trip of a lifetime! India is in my blood (in my terms) as I was born in Calcutta and lived there until I was eight years old. I can’t wait for this trip.
So my connections in the last week or two have literally been very physical! The interesting thing is that in the middle of all this coughing and spluttering, dosing up with antibiotics, trying to find some sort of food that we could all stomach etc. etc. I read an article in a daily paper (must have been The Times, as that is what we take!) about slow blogging. The article said that slow blogging had been a very popular idea, but that the person who had originally raised the whole idea of slow blogging now no longer blogged, presumably (according to the article) because people got fed up of waiting for the next blog post. This is an interesting dilemma – don’t you think? On the one hand we need time to be reflective, or simply to spend time away from the computer and on the other, if we don’t post on a fairly regular basis then no-one will read our posts anyhow!
I’m afraid what with illness and coming travel plans, my blogging will definitely be slow for the next few weeks, but hope to get up to speed again after that!
So I thought I would post now just to wish everyone who has visited my blog, and all those who have taken the time to comment, and all the friends I have made through this blog
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009
