Gulshan mein gul khilte hain jab...

Mid-term soon revealed how boring my life is. After returning from Birmingham I did little other than see Jodhaa Akbar (recommended highly to anyone with 4 spare hours - gosh people were good looking in the Mughal era) and book tickets to Hong Kong and Sydney in April.

It's strange to be going again after only 7 months (particularly as I waited 2 years before the last trip) but since I'm restricted to travelling during school holidays, I reason that this is the best time of the year to go in regard to weather and ticket prices.

On Saturday, Mogfa had requested a trip to Victoria Park for squirrel feeding. When she called in sick, I visited the local Turkish restaurant instead for beans on yoghurt and rice stuffed in vine leaves. When she texted in sick again on Sunday, I replied, 'no worries, flowers about to open, can't leave house'.


Almost a week later, they still look the same. Thank goodness for earthquakes!

Yep! Really looking forward to seeing you and Sea Bass (and maybe Knuffy?)! I'll be there from the 9th-16th.

Oh, that's great. I've got Easter holidays then : ) Knuffy would love to see Uncle Joe as well!
