Catching up

My last post was on Tuesday and that my dears, is a long time ago. I would have put up one more post before today but it was impossible for a number of reasons;
  1. I was to interview Standtall Husband. But he had refused to be the next “Interview Thursday” guest. Now I am chasing him for the interview. I said I would reveal his blogging identity and he was not pleased with that. No problem, just grant this interview. But no, he has come up with all the excuses you can think of. He is not so pardoned right now.
  2. The endless rain of Thursday. I would have done something else but the rain sure showed me. I was to go for a program first then go to the office later. But I neither reached the office nor attend the program. I just merry-go-round till I got tired and returned home. Why? Traffic of course! I left one major traffic for another thinking it would be better to go that way. In the end, I wasted quality time rotating on a spot!
  3. I had no access to my laptop on till yesterday. By then, I had got a lot of other things to deal with….
I am here wishing you a fabulous weekend. Mine is promising to be busy. I mean very busy.
Que: how many of you am I meeting at SBR come next Saturday? Hands up.

Black Cat said...

Hmmm, wonder why Hubby wants to remain a secret... Doesn't he want people to read his blog, lol?! Perhaps he is in the government, or a top brain surgeon or something else important and exciting. Now I'm really curious!

The Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star!

How I wonder what you are,

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.


When the blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle all the night.

The dark blue sky you keep

And often thro' my curtains peep,

For you never shut your eye

Till the sun is in the sky.


'Tis your bright and tiny spark

Lights the traveler in the dark;

Though I know not what you are

Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
