Blueberries and cream; peace, coffee and a croissant; the pleasure of writing; and friends

Gosh...in between an extremely hectic and pretty stressed two weeks at work, some things to smile about which I never got a chance to pen down..

- Finally opened that bottle of 'blueberries and cream' shampoo which a colleague had gifted on my birthday months and months ago. I was given this, for its bluish-purple colour, but wait, unexpectedly, it has this beeeautiful aroma each time I open the bottle...like a fantastic smelling cake. And, each time I wash my hair, I feel fab! Thks S.

-I found a lead pencil, yes - using one after years, which is soo smooth it just glides across the page. Now each time I have to jot something down I keep the pens away and reach for the pencil.

-Enjoying a cup of coffee and croissant while reading the Sunday paper in a coffee shop which usually plays loud music, but this time somehow let us simply enjoy the peace with muted music in the background.

and a bonus one..

-Enjoying a sleepover at a friend's new house. Love the new house and how welcome I was made to feel. Random giggles over unpacking new wine glasses and having great vodca left over by 'our weekend friend' !! Lol J! And thanks, I am so glad you are back.

Sigh..I miss and I hope

Yes, the realisation has hit with a small peck on the cheek, I do miss the old times (SIGH!). Nothing like a teaser to make one want the old familiar tastes...

I miss the back verandah of the raft on Kanchanaburi. That silence, the gentle rocking of the boat, and the sound of crickets...

Grrr....I wish I would could/would manage my time better...
