How are you my dear lovelies? Life get any better or is it same ole same ole with the daily routine…

AD for me seems to be neverending as we continue to all be at home with remote learning and work. As much as I love my husband and children, I would love some me time. But life is on a loop where I am spinning around 24/7 with a few pause moments where I get “angry” as my little one has labled my irritation. But come on, the kid wants “food food”, translation meals not snacks, six times a day! Oh, then there’s the husband, “what’s for breakfast, what’s for lunch, what’s for dinner,” not to mention hogs up the tv with the remote glued to his hand. Sorry Honey, but No I do not want to watch every America drama on every channel and streaming service. Uff, Calagon, better yet, MacBook take me away!

Alright enough of my whining with the cheese I am having, onto what all of you want to know… What the heck is going and where the fuck is that new chapter, Jigs?!?!

I won’t get into the reasons why I have neglected this story and blog, other than guilt keeps me away as I blow through life at the moment. All good, actually great with me taking on a new venture at the moment. I know as if I needed anymore to do, but for once in my life, I am getting involved in doing something that I love! So, all is well with the exception of me not getting the time to be in our SKD.

I miss Listed, I miss Arnav, I miss Khushi, I miss NK, yup the true star of this story ;), I miss writing, but most of all, I miss each and every one of you. A special thanks to the sweet ladies that have sent me messages, I am sorry for my manners for not responding but I truly had zoned everything out.

I am hoping things clear up in my dimaag soon so I can get my mojo back to be able to pull an all nighter to churn out the next chapter…. in the mean time, keep smiling and stay safe!

See ya’all soon

Loads of love and lots of hugs!

Jigs

  3. Even if you had spent all of your time after the previous chapter by doing nothing, it still wouldn’t be a problem for me. Despite having nothing but lots of free time, I still choose to do nothing but sleeping mostly, as if I need any more sleep. So you don’t need to be sad for not writing, since you’re surrounded by daily obligations. I will wait for you to find and enjoy your ‘me time’ and then will wait patiently for the next chapter.

    Good to know all is well and you are doing something you loved.
    That is Ok if you can’t post a chapter soon. Take a breather, get refreshed and write the next chapter/s.
    All is well with me and family too! Everyone settled into their new routines. Cases are less. Vaccines have started arriving. We have to wait for a while though to get the jabs. As long as there is no community transmission, we can wait as long as it takes.
    Watching IPL right now.
    Hello to everyone on the blog.
    Take care everyone!
    Cheers…

    Good to hear from you.
    Yes , I totally agree with you and can relate very well to the food demands , ( in my mind I go ” this is not a restaurant, it’s our home and I am your mom/wife. Lord, have mercy ” ).
    And , me time is something that I seem to have forgotten. Atleast , while travelling to work , I could get some of it.
    Be safe , and take your time. No worries.
    All the best for your new venture.

  25. Hey Jigs… so good to hear from you. Hope all are well and so are your family. Also, no apologies is really necessary honestly, considering that the pandemic situation is still happening worldwide and with the lockdowns/curfews implemented, normal life is kinda at a standstill. That’s what it is here in the Netherlands at the moment; Dutch government and the new parliament are still kinda chaotic since politicians from elected parties are still at loggerheads on matters, such as Covid vaccines, the lockdowns, etc. It’s kinda depressing, but still we have to keep a positive attitude and be optimistic about the future.

    Anyway, I don’t even understand why I’m blabbering about here. Just as most working adults, married routine life do keep us busy. For me, my getaway and relaxation after a busy and sometimes sh*tty day at work, one of my means to destress and relax my mind is reading and catching up on ARSHI fanfics on Wattpad and WordPress. Somehow it does give me joy doing that… one may find it pathetic or something, but hey, everyone has their own way to destress and mine is doing that… besides giving my hubby a hard time πŸ˜€

    Well, I’d better stop before I start blabbering away like there’s no tomorrow. Coming to your updates on ‘Listed’, take your time and update whenever you’re free or able to. Your readers will still be here and will not wander away… well, we’re not going anywhere (where can we go to anyway due to the current situation?) πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰ But on a serious note, as said, just update whenever you’re ready. Do take care of yourself and your family. And oh yeah, all the very best and success in your next project/venture. I’m sure you’ll do brilliants. So till next time, Stay Safe. Sending virtual hugs from the land of tulips. πŸ™‚

      Not in the least, Raven! It’s the best way to destress 😊
      I’m baffled by Europe’s dithering over the vaccine rollout. I hope they get their act together quickly. Lockdown repercussions are horrendous. As is the stop start we’ve been subjected to. I have my fingers crossed our roadmap stays on course as things reopen in a staged manner.

      1. Well, looks like the lockdown/curfew here in the country will not change… it’s now been extended to end Apr by the government due to increased of infected cases last week (more than 5,000 cases). Of course, there are now lots of protests and arguments. over this… it’s a never-ending story. Before the pandemic happened early last year, the Dutchies were enjoying too much of their freedom to be caged indoors for long periods; some of them, especially the young generation, are shouting about their rights to live freely… pandemic be damned. All reasoning and logic gone out of the window. I just feel that sometimes the world has just gone crazy and selfish. But still, gonna keep feeling optimistic and positive that the current situation will be better.
