Sharing my post-holidays world

Di is our gracious host for SYW

Here are this week’s questions:

1. How long did it take you to get back into your normal routine after the holidays?
(this does not have to be Christmas and New Year, but any holiday)

I do jump back to my normal routine as soon as guests leave ( we usually have guests for the Eid holidays). For people like me who like routine, getting back to is important, so I don’t laze around but straighten up the house and it’s back to my daily schedule.

2. Which makes you feel more relaxed, putting your feet up in front of the fire with a good book or socialising with your friends?

Alas, we never had a fire in our home. I do relax with my feet up on the lounge table and my phone in my hand, blogging away. But meeting friends is also a great way to unwind and relax. I guess if I have to choose, I’d go 50/50. Half the time with friends and half the time at home chilling.

3. What is your favourite hot drink?

A nice cup of coffee. I loved getting a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks in Seattle. Over here we have a few coffee shops and I love a hazelnut latte.

4. If you are feeling poorly, do you prefer to be pampered, or left alone?

I’d love to have my family, especially my daughters fussing over me. But when I’m sleepy, I like to be alone, so if I snore, only I am in the room.


It costs nothing to be kind, but one kind word can be priceless to the recipient.

I was honored to be the recipient of kindness in form of poetry books from my lovely blogging friends, Mich and Jeff. I received these books when I came back from Islamabad. My heartfelt gratitude to my gracious friends for this kindness.

Thank you Mich and Jeff for your effort and generosity.

Many thanks to Di for hosting SYW.
