I’ll be home sweet home for the long Holy Week vacation and will be travelling again after that. In the meantime, am looking forward to doing some spring cleaning, organizing my dishevelled things, cooking for my kids and resting. Working 48 hours and getting only one day off a week plus additional time to devote to my writing assignments has really taken its toll on me. I need some lovin’.
Fortunately, my friends and work colleagues have been making me smile by giving me all sorts of gifts the past few weeks, which makes me think that am such a lovable bitch after all, heheh. I love receiving gifts! and of course, I’d go out of my way to choose unique personalized gifts for someone for as long as my time and budget allows. In this overly high-tech age, snappy emails and text messages just doesn’t cut it anymore. We need to be more human. So it is that I thank Yayot for that pack of playing cards showing various sexual positions in ancient Greece (interesting huh!), MSS for the Burberry Brit and Gucci perfumes, Mayan for the olive oil soap, Jane for that bright pink pouch am using now to store my cosmetics, Marc for the cake, my girl friends S & T for those two pairs of earrings, Eileen for the Nine West bag and my uber-busy classmate Anna Lyn for those few lbs. of laks (smoked salmon) I received straight from Norway last week. Salmon is my all-time favorite and am really excited to take it out of the ref and cook it, with pasta or something.
Another favorite gift is this transparent bag which a hotelier-friend gave me. It has six inner pockets on each side where you can store your 3R or 4R pics. Being the proud momma, I wasted no time in displaying my kids’ pics and some more from my travels. I’ve been going out in the sun and to the office with this bag and I couldn’t care less if I’ve been transformed into a walking photo album!
Someone has been sending me flowers that it’s already filling up my dining table. Nothing like flowers to make a woman feel beautiful, but this killjoy would rather receive books or something, LOL. I realize too that there are too many men hovering around for the taking but I’d rather stick to the one on my list. I don’t think it’s such a tall order at all. Hopefully, I’ll find him soon (*wink)
Advanced Happy Easter everyone!!!!
