It’s been an age since I sat at a page like this : Create New Post 🙂
And it makes me feel so good, because this is one, like the previous one, that I am typing directly into the blog post! *Pats herself on the back*! Excuse me for that 🙂
Now, to a bigger list of excuses:
I have been deeply remiss in not acknowledging the comments all of you have left here. This one, is just to remind you of the last comment I keyed in with the previous post. My feeble excuse of not being able to find time to spend here, and and on all your wonderful spaces too.
It’s that time of the year again. The tenth class Pre Boards have started. The deadline to return 51 corrected, and commented upon answer scripts is Monday, 22 December, and I have barely started!! Each day, from day before, I have been collecting bundles, of the Seventh Standard, Ninth Standard; and today I shall get the Sixth Standard’s, tomorrow the Eighth Standard!!!
The brighter part of life is that the Elder One is home on leave, *beaming* and I’m having such a good time, I forget to be guilty. Lol! I like that feeling. But then he is going to leave home on 26th 😦 Then, well.. I refuse to think of it just yet! But for sure, that day the tsunami will strike again, this time flooding me with misery, and Guilt-for-all-the-papers-ignored!!!
And with the elder offspring here, for the short duration of 3 weeks, family visits are a Must. Living in the native heartland which abounds with much glorious vegetation and scenic splendour, not to mention Hordes of Relatives [the collective noun is in place, as far as some are concerned, lol!!!], Visits are a ritual that cannot be ignored. And so time flies again…
Finally, it’s the fact that the Younger One has finished his Semester Exams, the Elder One is here, and there in only ONE computer at home, none of us having graduated to laptops yet ;), I’m always the one who gets no time on the machine. *Wistfully gazing*
So… do excuse me 🙂 I shall be back, that you can bet upon!!!
For now, it’s au revoir. The answer scripts of the tenth standard beckon… And to the grindstone goes this grinning gremlin of a teacher!! Kids, here I come…!! [I can actually visualize them cowering, lol]
Okies, am off, else I shall degenerate into worse witticisms of the wacky sort!!!
Have a great weekend, and a Merry Christmas, all you wonderful people!
[Time, and opportunity permitting, hopefully I shall be able to wish you all again, at Christmas too 🙂 Today is one such rare opportunity 🙂 Am on leave, hence the luxury of time!!! And with the Younger One off to college, and the Elder One washing the car, could not let this opportunity be!!!]
