With due apologies to the Beatles, I’d like to be this cat under the tree, sleeping in the shade, all curled up.
Mumbai’s sun is beating down.
My trusty maid is out of town.
So is the driver.
With tonnes of work to do.
By end of day
I’m all wrung out and wish that
I could spend my time
Curled up like this kitty cat.
In case you think I’m grumbling, I’m not.
I am actually enjoying my Summertime in a city that is nearly empty.
With schools closed, the roads are clear and even though I am pretty much housebound, I’m enjoying doing housework. This gives me time to do some major clean up and also sharpen my culinary skills.
And while I’m bustling about the house, my Little Po and Ms Papaya are playing their own games of makebelieve. As I catch snatches of their ‘adult’ conversation in their own baby talk, I count myself among the lucky few who still have lots of things to do.
So before this post gets too wordy, I’d better get back to my busy day.
