Long time no updates!

I cant believe the last time I wrote here was January. I think I may have made a few posts as usual and not published them....

Its been a pretty hectic few months for me work-wise. The studio (touch-wood) has been super busy. March I expected would be a slow month and I wouldn't even make rent because of exam time. We all know how Indian parents become during the time of their kids exams. Its like they are taking their board exams all over again! But surprisingly I had full sessions in almost every class I announced. 

April on the other hand was a slow slow starter. I laboured with announcing classes and they always take time to pick up momentum. So literally half the month was spent doing nothing. When I have nothing to do work-wise, I tend to mope around and brood. I dig out long forgotten/ buried things and hyperventilate over them. I make myself miserable and I've decided that I hate myself for it. I am also quite difficult to live with when that happens. I dusted myself off and put a few classes together and then all of a sudden, wham! it was like the universe was telling me that I really needed to do this to feel better. 

April was a hot furnace in Hyderabad. It always is a miserable place to be during summer. I only tolerate it for the mangoes. But this time it has been truly horrid. 

I stopped being interested in food, cooking and eating. The highlight of the month tho, was the rescue and adoption of two puppies I found in succession. This needs a dedicated post and I hope I will get down to it before I forget all the emotions I felt during that time. 

This month too, for 5 days we pet sat a couple of beagle pups. They were four months old, a pair of really naughty little chubs who destroyed the wiring of our home theatre system, gnawed at my sofa, peed all over my house, ate mud from the balcony pots and tore my blankets among other things. But oh my! they were adorable!

K is always quite annoyed when I bring other living things of the human and animal category into the house to occupy space. In fact that is a lie, he goes bonkers. But to his credit, he accepts this stuff with more speed than I ever would and before you know it, he's cuddling the critters and kissing them, or being all funny and entertaining with the human guests. I love this about him, I will admit I take advantage of it too (smiles).

Haven't gone to the farm much due to the heat. We lost a lot of bhindi and beans because it wasn't harvested on time. I feel sad for that and now try and go atleast every 10 days. We made an evening trip on Appa's birthday, cut a cake and had chai and snacks and then came back after dinner. I hope I can resume my monday trips. K isn't in favour of going because he is terrified of the heat.

We went out quite a bit (by our standards) the last few months. Casual dinners with friends, parties and even a brunch was managed. I loved dressing up and dancing all night in my glittery gold flats! I paid for it the next day by being close to hungover during my class!

It has rained a couple of times these last few weeks and brought down the temperature considerably. That's the only saving grace.

K has another Dubai trip coming up next week, Amma is due to come over and stay. I have some interesting projects happening that I am quite excited about.

That's it for now... Hope you are well too! XX
