I’LL SEE YOU SOON!

Hey guys!

Firstly, I want to apologize, as for the past two-three days, I have not been able to catch up on all of your lovely blog posts! As you know, I fell ill with cough and cold and flu, and last couple of days were just terrible. My hubby had banned me from being on the laptop for very long, and as it is I was mostly sleeping the days away, after taking my meds. Luckily, my last post was already drafted before things got bad, and I could publish it and check your wonderful comments on it, every time I checked my phone. As always, they lifted my spirits instantly. Thanx a bunch!

Another reason why I took extra rest and sleep the past week, was that I really needed to get better very very soon this time. The reason? Well, guess what……. I AM FLYING HOME TO INDIA FOR A MONTH LONG VACATION ON SUNDAY!!!!!! To my Mommy! To My family and friends! After 1.5 years. WHOOPIEEEEE!!

So, when I fell ill, we got very worried because it is going to be a long journey from Ireland, and I will be travelling alone. It was good that the worst came when there was still enough time for me to recover, and the good news is that I am much better now. Still some weakness and touch of cold left, but I feel confident that I will be able to travel comfortably.

Friends, I am taking a little sabbatical from blogging, starting today. I am not carrying my laptop to India (Airlines and their weight limits, hmph!) and apart from that, will be travelling to different cities in India, throughout my stay. Therefore, I doubt I will get the time to be in constant touch. I will try my best to pop in to say Hi! on your new blog posts from time to time, and you never know, even share a new recipe once in a while, but for the first few days, I just want to relax and spend time with my loved ones, from whom I have been away from so long. Blogging has become such an integral part of my life and I feel bad for abandoning it for a month but no worries, I will be back very soon!

So, take care folks! Enjoy the summer and take very good care of yourselves. Will miss you guys 😦

Namaste!

Love,

Mallika ❤

  4. Mallika you will be missed quite so. But it is good to switch off and have a fabulous time without worrying about writing up posts. You have a gorgeous time and soak up the mouthwatering food.

    1. Thanx sweethrt! ❤ Really looking forward to this much needed break and more than that, to get a taste of the Indian summer after a long long time. Last two trips were in September-October and never during the "Mango season" A bit anxious about the long travel but hopefully it will all go smoothly! You take care and I will catch up on all your wonderful vacay posts soon. Hugs! x

      1. Watch movies? They are my favourite way of tiding time. And sip on lots of wine 😉 Indian summers give me the jitters just because the humidity always gets my goat. But the mangoes are the incentive. Mango it up I say 😀 xx

  5. Hey Mallika glad you are going to India. Get well soon before flying. Enjoy your stay and take loads and loads of pictures. Eat all the food you want to or you missed. Are you in Ireland ??? Mmmm ok. Do you get al the Indian dal and everything there ?? You know what we visited U.K. Last week for Easter holidays. Didn’t come to Ireland though. But a lovely place to live I guess. Take good care.

    1. Hi Meena! Good to hear from you after a break. I was wondering where you were lately 🙂 Yes, Ireland is lovely but I am looking forward to soaking up the sun in India after a long, long time. I am sure you had a great trip to the UK, and the weather there must be better right now as compared to the rest of the year. We lived there for two years before Ireland and had no problem getting the Indian stuff (veggies or spices etc) at all. You get EVERYTHING in the Uk. It was different when we came to Ireland though but luckily we found an Indian store that sells almost all the essentials to run an Indian kitchen. So, we r good now. Thanks for all the wishes 🙂 take care! x

  6. Mallika,

    I am so glad you are feeling better and able to travel. I remember one year my Mom got hit with a bout of gastro as we were sitting on a plane. We were heading to Barbados and we were over-nighting in Toronto. We just made it to Toronto where she spent the entire night in a stall in the bathroom (we were too cheap to get a hotel) and I guarded our luggage and read books.

    And now, bon voyage! Have an AMAZING AMAZING trip! Take lots of pictures (I’d love it if you shared some when you get back).

    1. Ooh..your poor mum! One of my biggest fears is getting sick on a plane. She must have been exhausted by the next morning, poor thing! Thanx for all the wishes hon, and you take good care of yourself! I will be looking forward to see the picture of your beach in the bowl, the next time I check in. Watch lots of movies and have a good time. I will be thrilled to share the pictures with you all after returning. Hugs! xx

      1. I felt so bad for her. She slept pretty much the entire flight from Toronto to Barbados. And didn’t do much the first couple of days we were there.

        Yes, hopefully I’ll have little palm trees in a month. And not just a bowl of sand and rocks. haha!

So, bring it on!😉 I will miss you all too but looking forward to taking a break and just relaxing for a while! Will catch up with you from time to time! Take good care!😄
