Home again and I fell in a heap, exhausted by all that has happened of late- I did not feel I wanted to move, think or do anything....
Getting over it now, but the recent fiasco with that 'fictional' Delhi police story I was mentioning a while ago and then no visa for Praveen due to the mistake of the visa agent and so having to do the trip to Oz alone just took the wind out of my sails...add to that a wonderful head cold and I was a teary mess coming home to fall into Praveen's arms.
I guess the best thing to do when feeling like that is to count your blessings, don't look at the length of the list of things to get onto rather like eating an elephant take it one bite at a time and DO start and move- wallowing as a blubbing mess will not help anyone.
OK there is a part of me that would like to sit and mould still but I am up to getting bored with that and moving on, I think.
Some of my blessings
- Praveen did sort out the Delhi fiasco and is safe home
2. we might have worked like maniacs for the last 6 months getting paperwork in order for the visa, only to have the guy mess it up- we still have all the bookwork etc done, business registations, tax statements and a better system of officework sorted out to keep the million and one government agencies we have to deal with as an Indian small business sorted out- which must be a better foundation for our future dealing with Indian paperwork.
This is Jen's blog and Facebook page - keep an eye on it as she has a whole new programme happening soon
