Last weekend, while we were snoozing under the blankets with the heating on trying to beat the return of the chill and fog, someone has been up and about splashing colours all over our favourite Park! For, on Sunday morning, when we lazily turned up for our routine walk we found this!
Spring is certainly winning over Winter in our corner of the world!
Henry Miller had rightly said. ...'The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself'.
And here we have the whole new crop of lovely flowers in vibrant colours to be grateful for!
Spring makes that happen! Everything routine all around you suddenly seems to come alive. And as even the dreariest and harshest of winters come to an end, the world wakes up to new life, new hopes and new joy! We only hope this weekend will not be as dreary and drab as the last. Things look good though, after an entire week of sunshine.
We are in a sort of dilemma over a decision Mummy needs to make. There is a new job offer. Working in the same hospital as Daddy sounds good – his team is expanding – but there are foreseeable problems. Foremost of all is about availing leave. How can two people in the same specialty team disappear on a holiday? Even one day of leave will prove difficult so there can hardly be a question of a long holiday. Then there are other technical issues like ‘ Oh! she’s your wife so you support her, etc’ in case of a dispute or in case of an emergency both are stuck for long hours with us waiting alone at home.
A good job offer isn’t just as good as it’s cover, we say! Decisions, decisions!
Oh Well! It’s weekend. Now go ahead and enjoy yours. Let’s shed our mundane cares and prove what Samuel Butler once said is right.
“All animals except man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.”
We are sure Mummy will go about proving the dude right too but we are trying to change that !!
( Holing to the Centre of the earth!)
( GO FETCH! )
( LEAVE IT! …Or not!!!)
Have a relaxed Weekend.
