Mom in India

It has been a long week for a very homesick mommy! I left for the UK last Sunday, headed to the UK for 2 days of work, and then flew into Delhi last Wednesday. The time difference with Bermuda is 9.5 hours - as a result I suffered from major jet lag, awake all night, falling asleep at about 4am and then waking up at 6:30am for work.

Delhi is the same as it was before - crazy! There is no such a thing as road rage, but there is also no such a things as obeying the rules of the road. Believe it or not I was quite relaxed and decided that the only way to enjoy this was to sit back and watch.

From a work perspective it was very productive, I found the guys out here really eager to learn and to share information. The last time I was here in 2002 there were 50 people in the office and there are now over 1000!

On the weekend Will (my colleague) and I went to Jaipur. Saturday was spent shopping - carpets etc. and then to the spa for massages et al. Sunday we did some sight seeing including an elephant ride.

I am currently sitting at Delhi airport having conned my way into the BA lounge - just joking, I just asked! I will see Dave and Tayla on Thursday morning, and man I alive, I have missed them. Miss T has not been very forthcoming in chatting to me on the phone.

Dave has been doing a superb job holding down the fort at home - a dad of note, but we always knew that.

We head to SA on Thursday evening for 2 weeks including Dad's wedding which I am very excited about. Tayla is due to be a flower girl, but how that will work I am not too sure. Perhaps a little bribery at the end of the aisle may help. She can get very shy so may need some Dutch courage - Rescue drops!

Bye for now.

Dave's International Hockey Debut

Dave played hockey for Bermuda - they lost to the US 2-0 and then lost to Mexico 5-2 in their warm up and warm down games for the Pan Am games. Adam, Dave's colleague and friend from Warwick was the star goalie.

Last pic is of Amy Dickinson - gorgeous if you ask me!

A visit to Tayla's school

I took the morning off on Wednesday to spend the day at Tayla's school. It was great fun and we read lots of stories, had circle time, made pear puppies and played outside. Little Miss T was telling everyone that this as her mommy - hilarious! She is very happy there although the boys out number the girls 5:2 - it is a man's world!
