Goal: Swim for 17th May I had to alter this goal. I intended to take a dip in the swimming pool of our hotel – City Palace in Tashkent. When I went to enquire about the pool timings etc., the receptionist referred to another man – maybe her boss – who said something to her… Continue reading When in drought
Completed Goal: Spa Day for 13th May Friday. After dropping Barima and Simba at my aunt’s, my mom and I had time and opportunity to head to the beauty parlour.

Goal no. 5 for 5th May: Organise Closet Maybe for some people this might sound like an easy achievable goal.

Beginning of this year, in January, a group of macrame artists on Facebook hosted a 30 day challenge. I happened to join the… Continue reading 30 Day Challenge
