This week is just perfect : nice weather,my kids at work are relaxed and I will work only 4 days out of 5.Tomorrow is the annual Sports Day for our school.I will be on the finish line and I am very excited about this event and my contribution to the day.After spending 3 years in a row as an announcer,I requested to be put elsewhere.I feel I will love the change!I feel like a kid myself and to think that I rarely used to attend any sports manifestatons when I was in high school!!

A common problem encountered by both committed and married women is loneliness!!All the single ladies out there do not even realise how lucky they are!Check this out:would you like to be in a relationship where you are the only one present?That is because the other half is busy with his playstation or doing a similar activity.(Much as I love myself,the answer is a definite no!!).I mean why do men think women love them?Because they are God's gift to women?I mean wake up!!If you can not make the woman you love happy,why are you with her?Let me just clarify myself here : I am not saying that all men are like this and I do not have anything against men.All I am saying is that some men tend to take their ladies for granted after the initial courting phase.In the initial stages of courtship,men are sensitive,loving,caring and most importantly,they communicate!They show so much passion for their ladies.So why do they lose these habits once they have conquered your heart,once they have heard the famous three word expression(I love you!)?

Even if you are the hunkiest man on Earth, you can not keep a woman glued to you just for your looks.What women want is to be swept off their feet!That is why all those soap-operas run for so long!!Women like the magic of love,the sizzling effect of romance and the dizzying sensation of passion but what they get in real life is different!!I do not mean that men should be romantic,seductive and passionate everyday but once in a while does a lot to improve a relationship.Does the woman who will bear your kids,do your laundry,cook your favourite food,put up with your excentric relatives(optional),keep your house clean ,be faithful to you,take care of you through thick and thin,through rich or poor times,support you through hard times and be your old-age partner deserve at least that??

Tonight will dawn into the first day of the second term of the secondary (primary) academic year.I can not really say that I like it but I am prepared to face the strange world of teenagers (no offense!!).Do not misunderstand me,I love my job but I am a bit clueless as to certain behavior of teenagers.Anyway the second term is the longest and coldest in Mauritius and there are very little public holidays,so I guess one ought to find reasons to be motivated!!I am impatiently waiting for a special event happening on the 20th of June.This will be my motivation!!

So you must have guessed what I mean here.I have been feeling under the weather since Monday and Tuesday morning I woke up with the flu.Having the flu is the most unglamorous illness.Your face becomes beet-red,you get dark circles under your eyes, your mouth remains ever-open and your red and super-sensitive nose runs.But what I like most about having the flu is that I have enough time to read and I do not have to be the responsible adult for 72 hours.

This is every girl's worst topic of conversation and worst nightmare.You meet a cool guy.You like him,he likes you and things start developping and feelings are born.He professes his eternal love and you profess yours.Everything is perfect until you start getting curious about his ex-girlfriend.Who is she?How does she look?

I do not know about you, girls, but I had an image of my boyfriend's ex-girlfriend.She had to be the opposite of me(or in some ways better than me!!):someone mysterious,gorgeous,suave,intelligent(good in maths),I even had the perfect astro-sign for her ,Taurus (Bipasha Basu!!) which is the best sign for Scorpio, she would be the type of girl he would always yearn for.But reality is quite different!!I do not want to be bitchy and rude to my boyfriend's exes but let me just say that I am happy for him that he is with me!!

Furthermore there is always a reason why someone is girlfriend while another is ex-girlfriend.Believe it or not,boys do not always think of their ex.That is until you remind him of her.Guys are good at forgetting and this time it is beneficial!!

I am allowing myself a little nightly pleasure(ok!it is not what you are thinking!)!Brownies with hot tea.This is worthy of Nigella Lawson as she is known to rummage through her fridge for goodies at night!!So here's to Nigella!!
PS: Girish,I do not do this every night honey!!

What is the use of saving rupee after rupee and depriving oneself of small pleasures??Money should be a means to attain a goal.It should not be a goal in itself.I like to spend my money by making myself and my loved ones happy.I do not know what future has in store for me but I want to be able to say on my deathbed that I lived to please myself and my dear ones..Witness how happy my sister seems!!

I am currently in a very serious relationship(with marriage possibilities)with a Scorpio guy who happens to be the most un-Scorpio ever and I am a very un-Libran myself.I happen to be a very hyper person who is a bit of a control freak with a bit of a possessive streak and very very manipulative and very much into feminism and a bit of a loudmouth with in your face frankness(You think that is impossible?Meet me,you will see!!).Commitment is not my forte!!My better half is the most tolerant,calm,sensitive,sweet,unassertive,loving(hot!!) and secretive guy I have ever known and commitment is his thing.The only things we have in common are our independence and the love we share.

If you ever try matching our signs you may find that we are not meant to be together while in reality we have already spent almost 3 yrs together.We spent 1 year running away from each other,the second year was spent trying to hide our love from my parents and the third year was spent by being apart.But what is good with our signs is that we are complementary.When I want to break up,he is always dissuading me and telling me how much we are good together(he never talks of breaking up).When he is discouraged,I try my best to make him laugh(I am his personal clown!!).I do not know about him but he is my best friend(after my sister!!).And there is nothing better than loving your best friend.

Easter holidays are the shortest holidays of the academic year(primary and secondary education) but they are the best holidays because one does not have the opportunity to get bored(that is always a good thing!!).

I have spent the first week of the holidays being the perfect daughter to my mom.I went to my grandmother's place for the weekend and I did not even mind using strange toilets(eew!!) and eating out.These two things normally strain my tolerance.I even went to a Janewa ceremony(hindu initiation ceremony!!) and I have socialized!!

I bought myself a little Ipod shuffle which is the best thing that has ever happened to me.That little beauty is a little miracle of technology(for me at least!!).Imagine being able to save 100 songs in a little device of a few centimeters!!I am smittened by it and I even sleep with it!Here I wish to give my thanks to my sister,Morina,who did everything so that I could listen to my favourite songs.She advised me on the type of device I should buy,she went to buy it,she helped me upload my favourite songs and she even called me a 'noob'(which is not as flattering as it sounds!!).I got reacquainted with Leann Rimes,Celine Dion and The Corrs.

So that's how I am spending my holidays,being a good daughter,listening to music,reading, watching my favourite series on t v and talking to my boyfriend.I have finished reading The Ghost by Danielle Steel and believe it or not,I am very happy I have read it.For those of you who have never read a book by Danielle Steel,let me just say that she is a writer who describes human emotions like nobody.Loss,death,betrayal,motherhood or sickness are the main themes of her books.Her books are so realistic that one can not help but be touched by them.I bought a box of tissue papers just to be able to read these books(note to myself:buy more tissue paper!!).Imagine reading a book by Danielle Steel while listening to Leann Rimes singing Crying Time.

Desperate Housewives's season 5 premiered last night on Canal+ and that had been the brightest part of yesterday.I loved watching Dexter(for now byebye Dexter,welcome back Gabby,Susan,Lynette,Bree,Eddie and Catherine!!) but Desperate Housewives is something I can share with my mum and my sis and that makes everything 'funner',if I may say so!!This is so important to me that I even asked my boyfriend to wait till after the show to call him.I was so excited that I finished all my chores at 7 pm and waited before the t v for the show to start.Finally I was not disappointed by the first two episodes of season 5.I really look forward to the rest of the season.

So last night when the man of my life asked me why I loved that show I said with joy in my heart that it is cause I can relate to these women.For a single woman I think that this series really tells us what to expect from married life and that things change.

So after the first week of holidays I can really say that I am having a blast and I have not even eaten any chocolate!!long live the Easter holidays!!

[So how are you spending your Easter Holidays?]
