You know why we need friends? To kick our backsides when we really need to get going. I have spoken about my dear friend Shailaja and how she pushed me to take up the April A to Z Challenge. Well she's done it again. It's not a challenge this time - she pushed me into doing a guest post for her amazing, award winning blog momdiary.blogspot.com.
I am barely managing to post once a week on my own blog, not even updating my book club meetings which, by the way, are getting ever more fun every week. What's worse I am posting the guest post update full two days after it was published on hers. Yes I should die of shame.
|My friend Google threw this up. How appropriate, isn't it?|
The bright side, though, is that I did manage the post for her blog. Speaks volumes of her capacity as a motivator. Thanks Shailaja for hosting me. So if you haven't read my take on Sibling Rivalry at Shailaja's and have a pair of constantly quibbling kids, do hop over and take a look.
Here's the link.
The thing is, of late I have taken up an assignment, a minor one but an assignment nonetheless. Plus there's the book club. Each time I'm free I find myself reaching for the iPad and googling "Short stories for kids". And there's been a barrage of activity at home - birthdays, festivals, socialising. Not being one of those flamboyant kind of people, I feel overwhelmed with too much activity. I like my routine. A once-in-a-week upset works; more than that and I'm thrown out of gear.
However, the moral of the story is that I can make time if I try really hard. So here's one post and another one coming up shortly.
