I know what I have to do. Drink plenty of water. Take my medicines on time. Make sure to get to bed on time and make sure I get my eight hours of sleep.
I love my sleep, but the trouble is, I never really want to sleep in case I miss something.
As soon as the kids are asleep at night (well, the younger ones obviously) I have a hundred and one things I want to do. But that's not really good for me so I've got to try and have a more level headed approach to life.
There's a family wedding to attend in Delhi the first week in February too. I have to go shopping and I'm dreading it. Shopping in India is both an art and a science. I don't know if I'll ever be up to it.
But this weekend is a holiday weekend in India. The 26th January is Republic Day. That's the the modern nation of India got it's Constituiton. So I'll relax and enjoy the holiday and plan my next move.
Self improvement? Could always try some yoga asanas I suppose. My late father in law swore by them.
Happy Republic Day to all my Indian friends. And happy Australia day to my Australian friends. Both on 26th January.
I love this photo which I put up on my Facebook page in the last fortnight. I clicked it from my cameraphone. The roses are still blooming in our garden with their rich perfume, even in the midst of a cold snap. Indian roses are so beautiful, you feel happy just looking at them.
This is my weekly post for my blogging group, the Loose Blogging Consortium. We post weekly (usually simultaneously) on a given topic and visit each other to see the different takes we have on the same topic. We are, in alphabetical order, Anu, Delirious, Rummuser, Grannymar, Maxi, Magpie, Maria SF, ocdwriter, Padmum, Paul, The Old Fossil, Shackman and Will. If you have time, please visit my friends too. The topic 'Self Improvement ' was given by Ramana the Rummuser, and is just about typical. I'm sure he has some wonderfully erudite post on this very topic in which he imparts pearls of wisdom to his followers. I am sure he dreams of setting up an ashram where he can coax thousands of beautiful, rich women to part with thousands of dollars in aid of his yet to be set up charitable trust which can easily be diverted into his .......oh, don't mind me, I'm just joking.....LOL.
